TeloYears Genetic Test

Telomeres are the protective caps found at the ends of your chromosomes that protect our genetic information during cellular division. For our bodies to heal and function properly, cells must divide to product new cells to replace old, worn-out cells. Telomeres allow our cells to divide without damaging or scrambling the cells’ genetic information. A great analogy for telomeres is the plastic tips on shoelaces as they keep chromosome ends from tangling and fraying. Teloyears genetic test is a simple, accurate DNA test that lets you track your cellular age based on your telomere length. Inside all your cells, at the ends of your DNA are protective caps called telomeres. They shorten with age. But they can also change with certain lifestyles, both good and bad. You should know that there are steps you can take to help slow down the clock on the aging process. But if you don’t measure it, you can’t manage it.

The Nobel Prize in Medicine for breakthrough discoveries in Telomere Biology was awarded in 2009 to one of the founders of the company now providing TeloYears. No other DNA test has had more prestigious scientific research supporting its development.

They explain that knowing your age in TeloYears allows them to “understand how quickly or slowly you are aging at a cellular level. Decades of research published in scientific journals has shown that shorter telomeres are accelerated aging and aging-related conditions. TeloYears results can be used to reinforce lifestyle changes that are associated with slowing and even reversing cellular aging. You can repeat the TeloYears test over time to see how your lifestyle (e,g. diet, exercise and stress management) plans are working to improve functioning on a cellular level.”

    If this is true, my body is in great shape, better than the age on my birth certificate. I hope to keep on caring for myself as I have done all my life.

    + PROS: Amazing results!
    - CONS: Uses blood instead of a buccal swab

    I always wondered when I met people who seemed to be younger than their actual age. I figured it was plastic surgery or Botox. Now I know there is a physiological reason explaining a difference between their real years and Teloyears.

    Way cool!

    + PROS: Costs less than a session at the spa and made me feel young just know the Teloyears of my body.

    I was really looking forward to this test. Sent in my blood sample and the first issue was the major delay in getting the results back. It was probably closer to two months which is unacceptable. The company claims it’s because of all the orders they’ve gotten. Let me just state first that I’ve never done drugs… I’ve never smoked… I drink maybe 3x a year… take supplements daily… work out 3-4 times a week… and eat pretty well. I can trace my ancestors back to the 1200’s where a majority of them lived into their 70’s which was a very long life back then! I get my results and it says I have the DNA of a man 18 years older than I am. What a crock of s*$!#. I had a physical a week later and told my doctor about it and he said not to put much weight into it. This test proved NOTHING. Save your money.

    + PROS: None
    - CONS: Price, turnaround time, test results accuracy, company's review policy
