The Real Age Test analyses your glycans with a simple finger prick test you can do yourself at home or if you need help it can be done in clinic, your results will be with you in three to five weeks. Glycans are sugar molecules which modify the proteins in your body, react to your lifestyle and show indications of the inflammatory state of your immune system, to determine your biological age. They are also known to be regulated by genes, your environment and the lifestyle decisions you make allowing them to have a large influence over your individual biology. Factors such as diet, fitness, hormone changes, your environment, ethnicity, among other, are know to cause an imbalance in pro and anti-inflammatory glycans which indicate whether the speed of ageing has increased or not.
Knowing your Real Age can be a great reassurance, but don’t worry if you aren’t happy with your results. We can work together to improve your scores, changes to your diet, lifestyle, supplements or even certain medical treatments can all improve your glycan score. Once we have identified your biological age and the factors influencing it, Dr Roked will advise you on changes that can help reduce your biological age and improve your overall health.
