What is Epigenetics?
In layman’s terms – your DNA is basically like a giant recipe book. The genes (sections of the DNA) act as specific steps in the recipes, and control how every part of your body is built, and how it functions.
These genes are on (expressed) or off (not expressed), and can be partially expressed, like a dimmer switch.
Epigenetics is how your environment and lifestyle changes your gene expression. Things like nutrition, smoking, stress, sleep habits – can all change your gene expression.
TruAge™ Epigenetic Test
TruAge™ tests up to 425x more spots on the DNA than any other age predictor. We use an algorithm powered by machine learning to create your personalized report that tells you your current biological age, as well as next steps on how to lower your age! Reducing biological age leads to a drastically lowered chance of mortality.
Using a few drops of blood, our the TruDiagnostic Lab analyzes an epigenetic marker called DNA Methylation to create an in-depth analysis of your current Biological Age.
Knowing your Biological Age, we can offer research-backed lifestyle tips to help slow aging and reduce the risk of aging-related chronic diseases.

How TruAge™ Works
Once you receive the TruAge™ sample collection kit:
1) Register Your Kit
2) Collect your sample
3) Mail it to our lab
Once we receive your sample, our laboratory will:
4) Carefully process your DNA to isolate and measure methylated locations.
5) Analyze your methylation patterns to find your Biological Age.
6) We then email you when your report is ready to view!
