Extend Longevity with BioAge Testing

April 26, 2023

With the latest scientific knowledge and technology, we can better understand our bodies and the ageing process. We can then use this information to make informed decisions about how to increase our longevity and even reverse ageing.

What is bioAge science?

BioAge science is a cutting-edge field that helps us understand that our biological age, rather than our chronological age, is a true reflection of our body's age inside and out.

This approach to health and wellbeing focuses on the ‘age’ of our body's internal systems; cellular; muscular; gut. As we know, the process of age-related decline can have a wide range of effects on our bodies and be they positive or negative there is often something we can do about them.

The impact of bioAge science on health and wellbeing can be considerable, and the research is growing all the time – in fact it is one of the fastest growing research areas of the 21st century. It provides us with a proactive approach to longevity, allowing us to take action to maintain and even restore our health.

By understanding the effects of age-related decline, bioAge science provides us with the knowledge to make the necessary dietary and lifestyle modifications, so we can slow down the effects of ageing which can ultimately extend both our healthspan and even our lifespan.

What is bioAge testing?

Being able to monitor our biological age is key to unlocking the full potential of this science, and this is done through measures such as genomic testing and body composition assessments.

BioAge testing enables us to understand the biological age of our organs, joints, and systems. We can then implement lifestyle modifications to effectively reduce their ‘age’, restoring them to a healthier state.

The information we get from biological age testing can enable us to live longer, healthier

Our Longevity service to you
How do we determine your biological age and why does it matter? We follow a 4-step process:
1) BioAge analysis

BioAge analysis in Longevity involves two tests:

Functional fitness assessment

Using our advanced electromagnetic fitness machines and A.I. cameras, we gather data on your muscular strength, cardiovascular fitness, flexibility and metabolism.

Your data is then compared against a database of over 1 million people to provide you with an accurate functional fitness age.

Additionally, we provide you with a personalised exercise plan to help you lower your functional bioAge with the aim of eventually bringing it below your chronological age.

DNA/epigenetics test

From a simple mouth swab, our bioinformatics and science teams can identify the genes and biomarkers that correlate to cellular ageing. This allows you to see a true
representation of how your diet, lifestyle, and environment has been affecting you at a cellular and genetic level, as well as the current state of your internal health.

We can also accurately identify and calculate your eye, hearing, and memory ages.

All your results are sent directly to your phone where you can access them in an easy-to-use app. The app displays interactive charts and advice, plus our team of Longevity coaches are on hand to answer your questions and offer you support.

This biological age test is scientifically proven and is more accurate than the functional test in determining your bioAge. This test enables us to offer you highly personalised advice. We can recommend exactly the right vitamins for your body, and tailor a 3-point DNA-powered lifestyle program and a hyper-personalised nutrition plan.

2) Cellular health

Cellular health depends on getting our omega 3s & 6s in balance. We should all have a ratio of 1:3 – that’s one omega-3 to three omega-6s.

Maintaining a proper balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids is essential for your overall health and wellbeing.

These polyunsaturated fats play an important role in supporting brain function, reducing inflammation, and promoting heart health. Our bodies cannot produce these essential nutrients on their own, so they must be obtained through diet.

To discover your omega-3 ratios, we start with a ‘balance test’. Once we have the result, we can do something about it either by tweaking your nutrition or by adding omega-3 supplements to your diet.

3) Gut health

Gut health is now scientifically proven to be the single biggest indicator of the overall health of our body both physically and cognitively.

The results of a gut health test will tell you how your pre and probiotics are working in your gut. It will tell you how far they are supporting your immune system, reducing cell inflammation, and improving your mental health.

There is a strong connection between the gut and the brain known as the gut-brain axis. The gut microbiome produces neurotransmitters and other chemicals that can influence our mood and behaviour.

Based on your results, we can tweak your nutrition. If eating 30 different types of vegetables, fruits and pulses every week is a step too far, don’t worry, there are other solutions we can try.

4) Education

We promise to keep you up to date with all the latest scientifically proven advice and medical breakthroughs in the world of Longevity.

How do we do this?

Every week we drop articles, podcasts or reading suggestions into our proprietary WhatsApp messaging service.

Our messaging service is managed by ‘Lenny’ our Longevity AI Bot who knows the answer to most of your Longevity related questions and concerns. If he doesn’t know the answer, one of our Longevity experts will jump in to point you in the right direction.

In addition, in our specially curated marketplace, you will get special member discounts on a range of products and services. These products and services are specially recommended by us, and all designed to help you live a long and healthy life.

Where does Longevity bioAge testing take place?

All our assessments are carried out in The Longevity studio. This is also home to our specialised exercise circuit using advanced electromagnetic resistance machines.

We encourage you to complete the 35-minute circuit twice a week. It's very easy to use and provides personalised resistance training to increase your muscle strength.
