Telomere testing evaluates your health at the cellular level, is the best measure of the current length of a chromosome’s telomeres and has proven to be the most accurate method of determining your biological versus chronological age.
It also provides a critical understanding of how lifestyle habits are impacting your health, further informing the development of a truly personalized and targeted Elite Health Program.
By analyzing your cell’s ability to duplicate itself, this revolutionary procedure provides our physicians with critical data about your body. When a cell replicates, its telomere is shortened and the life span of the cell is reduced. Poor lifestyle factors—smoking, unmanaged stress, being overweight, lack of exercise—can accelerate telomere shortening over time to the point where a cell cannot function properly. When cells can no longer divide, they die, and the risk of disease and premature aging increase.
