Telomeres are sections of genetic material at the end of each chromosome whose primary function is to prevent chromosomal “fraying” when a cell replicates. As a cell ages, its telomeres become shorter. Eventually, the telomeres become too short to allow cell replication, the cell stops dividing and will ultimately die – a normal biological process. SpectraCell’s Telomere Test can determine the length of a patient’s telomeres in relation to the patient’s age.
This testing does not tell you how long you have to live. Instead it tell you how well you are aging on the inside. If you know how you are aging, you can make some lifestyle adjustments, if needed before it’s too late, to affect your overall health.
Your genes are set but you have an affect on them with your lifestyle choices.
