Why is nutrient status importaint ? Vitamin, mineral, and antitoxic defieciencies have been shown to supress the function of the immune system which can contribute to cardiovascular disease and diabetes. You may be deficient in some vitimains, minerals, antioxidents and/or other essential micronutrients and not even know it.
What does telomere testing measure?
Telomeres are sections of genetic material at the end of each chromosome whose primary function is to prevent chromosome "fraying" when a cell replicates. As a cell ages it's telomeres become shorter. Eventually the telomeres become too short to allow cell replication, the cells stop dividing it will ultimately die, a normal biological process. SpectraCell's telomere test can determine the age of the patients telomeres in relation to the patient's age.
How are the results reported?
The patients total telomere score is calculated based on the patient's telomere length white blood cells. (T-lymphocytes) This is the average compared to telomere length on lymphocytes from a sample of the American population in the same age range. The higher the telomere score. the younger the cells. Telomere Score that is above the average line is desirable. We provide telomere testing for a full report. See your biological age and find out how to repair your telomeres for longer, happier and healthier life.

Testing should be done once per year to evaluate the rate of aging and make adjustments in nutrition, nutritional supplements, weight management, exercise and all their lifestyle modifications note to influence telomere length
