BioAge - Biological age test
With our biological age test, we analyze your epigenetic biological age in relation to your chronological age, which represents how old your body is compared to the age calculated in the traditional way.
In our test analysis, we measure how and where specific methyl groups have modified your DNA and then look at correlation patterns in over 1000 epigenetic markers to estimate your true biological age. BioAge – Biological age test analysis is done in the laboratory from a saliva sample, which is taken with a sampling device that can be easily delivered to your home.

What does the BioAge test mean?
The BioAge test is not a genetic test related to your heredity. Instead, it is a methylation analysis that measures your biological age using the DNA Methylation Clock. DNA methylation refers to a reaction directed at DNA, i.e. the addition or substitution of methyl groups (-CH3) to a compound. This process regulates gene transcription, determining whether a gene is turned on or off. Biological age has been shown to strongly predict future health status and lifespan. Importantly, lifestyle factors can influence gene expression and, consequently, the test results. By making changes that support your health, you can impact gene expression and improve your test outcomes.
The results can help you understand the key factors influencing your aging process. The test report analyzes the most significant risk factor negatively affecting your biological age, and in addition, you will receive information about other important risk factors presented in a clear and understandable format.
Why should you take the BioAge test?
Measuring biological age is worthwhile, as it has been shown to be a good predictor of maintaining health and longevity (Lu Horvath 2018). BioAge testing enables the examination of functional markers based on biomarker data from large epidemiological clinical studies.
For example, a 7.5-year increase in biological age compared to chronological age can significantly reduce life expectancy. Correspondingly, a 7.5-year lower biological age compared to chronological age can give significantly more years of life.
Determining and monitoring your biological age can help you see changes over time and understand how diet, lifestyle changes, and anti-aging treatments affect your rate of aging. We have trained health professionals, who are ready to assist you in identifying lifestyle choices that support your health, allowing you to impact your quality of life, overall health, and consequently, your biological age.
