WHAT SETS HEALTHSPAN APART?
TOP-NOTCH ACCURACY IN AGING MEASUREMENT
Most epigenetics testing kits are fueled by methylation arrays which are prone to batch effects and other external factors such as bacterial presence, these problems are avoided with Healthspan, which is powered by Next-generation Sequencing (NGS) technology developed in partnership with Chronomics, a global leader with MIT Tech Review recognition for the development of epigenetics testing through combining epigenetic sequencing process and machine learning.
Healthspan yields the most on-point aging measurements by assessing undiscovered regions of the human epigenome, accelerating the discovery of foreign chemical marks (known as biomarkers) in the DNA.
ENCOMPASSING COVERAGE IN AGING MEASUREMENT
Healthspan gives you the power to determine your biological age and know how well you are aging. Our biological age is affected by lifestyle and external factors over time. By analyzing the methylation in your DNA, Healthspan can not only calculate your biological age, but it can also reveal your biological age acceleration.
Biological age acceleration (BAA) is the deviation of your biological age and chronological age. If your BAA is positive, it means that you are aging faster which can be accompanied with worse health outcomes. If your BAA is negative, then it means you are aging at a more considerable and healthier pace. Knowing your BAA rate allows you to adopt the specific lifestyle changes necessary to improve your biological age.
FLEXIBILITY IN AGING MEASUREMENT
While most epigenetics testing kits solely rely on saliva, Healthspan can also extract DNA from blood, among other recommended sources. Healthspan can provide precise aging measurements with any other tissue aside from saliva, proving its generalizability in aging measurement across technologies.
HOW DOES HEALTHSPAN WORK?
Upon signing up, a testing kit will be sent straight to your home. Provide a sample of your DNA by spitting in the tube and mail it back in the post with our prepaid envelope. Your DNA information will be extracted from the saliva sample you have given, and our pioneering Next-generation Sequencing technology will analyze it.
Within six to eight weeks, the results of your test will be available to view on your personal online dashboard. Your information will be displayed in easy-to-understand interactive reports, giving you a picture of your overall health at a DNA level.
You may use the results to create a health plan consisting of well-informed lifestyle decisions that are most suitable and appropriate for you, all with the purpose of enhancing your biological age. You may also speak with our health experts to create a tailored health plan – it’s up to you.
Check in with your experts regularly to keep you on track and repeat your epigenetics test annually to see your health improve over time.
FINEST IN WELLNESS THROUGH HEALTHSPAN
Knowledge is power, and knowing your biological age with Healthspan can definitely guide you to a healthier lifestyle. Being informed on how epigenetics modifies your biology on a cellular level through the influence of your lifestyle and environment can help you shape your health track for the better. Devoted to its tradition of bringing the finest to wellness, Healthspan is developed according to one of the most basic principles in healthcare: prevention is better than cure.
