SLOW DOWN AGING AND START LIVING AT YOU OPTIMAL BEST
Telomeres are segments of DNA at the end of each chromosome that serve as a protective cap to your genetic material. Every time our cells replicate and divide it causes our telomeres to shorten, and shorter telomeres mean a shorter life span for our cells. How fast or slow cells divide has to do with a person’s lifestyle and pre-genetic dispositions. Fortunately, today we can test, evaluate and determine telomere length.
WHAT CAN I DO TO REDUCE MY RATE OF TELOMERE LOSS?
Shorter telomeres have been associated with metabolic abnormalities, obesity and several degenerative diseases including cancer, dementia and cardiovascular disease. In vitro studies have shown that telomeres are highly susceptible to oxidative stress, which will shorten telomere length and enhance cellular aging.
Minimizing associated risk factors that are linked to shortened telomere activity is recommended and include:
• Reduce oxidative stress
• Correct micronutrient deficiencies, especially vitamin D3
• Change sedentary lifestyle/increase physical activity
• Avoid weight gain or obesity
• Correct insulin resistance
This is first test developed to measure telomere length, which indicates how rapidly a person is aging in comparison to a healthy population. With our unique tailored treatments, we help our patients slow the loss of telomere shortening, which in turn slows down the biological aging clock and restores vitality.
HOW DO I GET MY TELOMERE BLOOD TEST DONE?
We made it simple and easy for you! At your convenience, give us a date and time and we'll have one of our phlebotomists drive to your home or office to have your blood drawn. This test does not require any fasting as well. Once your blood is drawn, you will receive easy to read test results within 3 weeks. Once you have your results, one of our specialized trained health care specialists will walk you through your results and what they mean. In addition, we will show what pharmaceutical grade supplements to take and how to efficiently improve your health and slow down the aging process for a better life.
In addition, with the same blood draw, a specialized "Brain Omega Check" and "Micronutrient Biological Aging" test can be included with your Telomere test. These additional test can identify essential nutrient deficiencies at a cellular level and the Omega 6 to 3 ratios intake in your brain. 2/3 of your brain is fat, so testing for these essential omega ratios could take your physical/cognitive function and neuro-degenerative prevention to the next level.
