Telomere length testing is used to give users information about an important health metric, which is strongly related to overall health and longevity. Users can track their telomere length over time and determine if their lifestyle choices are positively influencing their cellular health by telomere length.
Our kit is able to tell users:
- Their telomere length measured in relative T/S and in absolute length in kbp (kilobasepairs)
- The dynamics of telomere length change overtime by doing consequent tests
- How their telomere length compares with others in their demographic (age, sex)
- How their telomere length compares with others who have similar and different diets
One telomere length testing kit includes: two sterile nylon swabs, two vials with DNA shielding solution, one prepaid (for domestic orders) return envelope, and two ziplock bags for secure return shipment.
Upon receipt and proper use of a telomere testing kit, users are prompted to take a survey in our client platform which will allow us to correlate their lifestyle choices and other demographics to their telomere length. Then, when their results are ready, users can log back into our client platform to access their results. Results usually take an estimated 3-4 weeks, but in rare, extenuating circumstances (equipment upgrades, etc), may take up to 8 weeks.
Note: By ordering a telomere length test you agree that you are not seeking medical advice. Our kits are for informational and educational purposes only, and should solely be used to make non-medical lifestyle choices related to exercise and diet.
