When we are born, all of our cells have the same DNA. The cells in your eyes have the same DNA as the cells in your hair. So what makes them different?
The answer is each cell chooses to turn on some genes and turn others off. Your eyes express different genes than your hair. This is called expression, and it is controlled by the markers we measure with our TruAge test.
Unfortunately, as we age, expression can become much harder to regulate. The genes which should be expressed in your eyes aren’t regulated as well and you start to lose function. In fact, aging is defined as the progressive loss of function as you age!
We want to give you this complex information in an easy format so you can age slower and even REVERSE your epigenetic age.
