What is your cellular age?
Telomere shortening is a marker of cellular senescence. Hence, the shorter the telomeres, the older is the cellular age.
Telomere testing tells your biological age, which for most people is different than their chronological age. Studies show that a healthy lifestyle is associated with longer telomeres, i.e. a younger biological age.
While telomeres can be a significant indicator of long-term health do not be discouraged if your results are not what you hoped for. The good news is that telomeres change!
This means that unlike your chronological age you can actually add biological years to your life.
