What are telomeres?
and why you should care about them
Telomeres are protective-caps of chromosomes. They do not contain genetic information but act as physical protection for your DNA. They are the offensive line to your quarterback.
The shorter they are, the more risks to your health and the shorter your projected lifespan. You want your linemen to be strong and healthy.
You can measure your telomeres and compare your result to others of your age. Discover how you stack up against the “competition”.
Why are telomeres important?
Telomeres can be used to determine a measure of cellular health and longevity
Short telomeres are markers for the early onset of age-related diseases
Telomeres are the most precise cellular-level biomarker for overall health
The best way to evaluate the efficiency of anti-aging therapies or lifestyle interventions on the cellular level is to measure telomeres
Telomere length is of importance for academics studying the behavior of and cure for cancer
Telomeres are an important marker of aging, often used in research on the cause and fight against aging
Why choose Titanovo's telomere length test?
1. The only non-invasive telomere testing solution
You provide us simply with a sample of saliva, no blood involved. Why is this important? Saliva contains multiple cell types used for analysis (buccal and lymphocytes). Using both we get a result that better represents average telomere length within the body.
2. We work both with private customers, medical professionals and communities
Our range of labs gives an access to single and bulk orders. CLIA-certified lab gives highest precision to doctors worldwide - mostly notably USA and UK.
3. We provide more than just a ``biological age``
Telomere length changes happen rapidly and the main factors that impacts telomere length are oxidative stress, pollution and inflammation – leading aging factors. Measuring telomere length over time with Titanovo can help determine if there are environmental or lifestyle factors increasing aging.
What you get:
Your telomere length
And it's comparison to others of your age. See if you have a normal telomere length, or if you should consider options to improve it.
