My DNAage result is higher than I expected – what does this mean and what can I do about it?

If your biological age is higher than you expected, there are many reasons why this may be the case and many ways in which you can take action to moderate it.

One of the key benefits of DNAage is to let you know how your cells are behaving, so that you can investigate making changes that support a healthy aging journey and reduce your biological age.  If your biological age is higher than you expected, there are many reasons why this may be the case and many ways in which you can take action to moderate it.

 

You may have chosen to test your biological age because you know that there is room for improvement in your health.  Perhaps you smoke - or used to smoke -, you may eat processed foods, drink alcohol regularly, or you may be carrying around some extra weight or have a health condition, such as diabetes.  All these factors and more can impact your biological age.  If you completed the test whilst you were unwell, experiencing stress, or if you are pregnant, or recently had surgery, these factors can have a temporary effect on your biological age.

 

We would recommend that you look into making lifestyle changes and taking supplements to start to bring your biological age closer to – or perhaps, even lower than – your chronological age.  We have created a number of blogs on the ways in which lifestyle behaviours can impact the way we age and how you can adopt behaviours that support healthy aging.  Please see the Wellness page of our website to find out more.  The Cellular System range has been created to address the nine Hallmarks of Aging and you will receive a recommendation of the products suited to your biological age after receiving your results.  Further information can be found in our Products FAQs.  We recommend that you adopt changes that best suit your lifestyle to give you the greatest chance of maintaining them.  Ideally, we would recommend that you retest your biological age 6-12 months after implementing these changes to understand how they have impacted your biological age. 

 

If you would like to know more, you can book a 20-minute consult with us.  We will send you a booking link with your results, if this is of interest to you.  If you have noticed any recent changes to your health, we would recommend that you consult your health practitioner to help you identify any health issues.
