You begin aging the moment you are born. As your body builds up free radicals and depletes its supply of hormones, you begin to exhaust yourself, and in turn, you age even faster.
Of course, it isn’t possible to completely stop aging. However, science has now revealed a relatively new way you can determine your longevity. Your body has markers that can show how quickly you are expected to age.
At the end of your DNA strands, you have what are called telomeres. These telomeres vary in length, and their length is an indicator of how fast or how slow you will age. The longer your telomeres are, the slower you will age.
One way to slow down the aging process is to live a balanced life. Living a balanced life includes:
Eating a healthy diet, getting adequate rest, ensuring your hormones are balanced, and keeping your stress under control will help make sure your telomeres don’t shrink too rapidly. Depending on your specific health condition, you may also need supplements alongside a good diet
When you go in for an anti-aging and metabolic function assessment, your health specialist will take a telomere assessment, usually through a blood test, in order to determine whether your telomeres are longer or shorter than expected.
They will also give you a comprehensive nutritional evaluation to see if you need to make any dietary changes. The nutritional evaluation usually involves weight and height measurements, a blood test, a urine test, and a nutritional interview. These tests will help your health specialist understand what nutrients your body is lacking so they can create a treatment plan for you.
