Biological Age Test
What is the epiAge™ test?

The epiAge™ test provides you with a sharp and reliable snapshot of your current health! It reveals your biological age. Compared to the age in your passport, your biological age shows you how your body has actually aged.

If your biological age is lower than your chronological age, you are probably already on the right track to staying healthy in the long term. But if your biological age is higher, it may be time to adopt healthier strategies.

Ageing is a complex process that is steered by several factors: we seem to genetically inherit a certain longevity potential from our forebears. But individual lifestyle appears even more influential on ageing, hence the health of the body. This means that epiAge does not analyse your DNA but rather the system of biochemical switches around the DNA (epigenetics). This system activates or temporarily silences certain genes or gene sequences by means of chemical changes (in our case methylation). Epigenetics are influenced by lifestyle, personal circumstances and the environment – hence you actually have the power to make changes and positively influence your health.

You can expect your result – i.e. a number, your biological age – 2-4 weeks after epiAge has received your sample. As soon as it has reached epiAge, you will receive a confirmation by email – provided you have registered the ID number of the sample beforehand.

If my biological age is older than my chronological age:
The fact that your biological age is higher than it should be is a sign that you should probably make some lifestyle changes. Talk to your doctor about how you can better foster your health and set yourself realistic goals.

If my biological age is younger than my chronological age:
A younger biological age may mean that you are already on the right path to healthy ageing. Nevertheless, you should see this as an incentive to maintain and even expand your healthy habits.

Now you know where you stand with your biological age. Since the latter is influenced by diet, exercise, sleep and stress, among other aspects, your test result should encourage you to change your lifestyle and live (even) more healthily. Why not start today? Set yourself realistic goals and work towards long-term changes. Here are 11 scientifically proven longevity hacks to get you started.

You can tell you are making progress when you start feeling really well. You can also find out how your health has progressed concretely by doing a follow-up test after a few months.

The ageing process can indeed be slowed down and sometimes even reversed. Key factors are lifestyle, personal circumstances and the environment in which you live. If you manage to implement positive changes in these dimensions, chances are that ageing will slow down.

Your sample has been assigned a secure ID number. We assign it anonymously and it can no longer be attributed to a specific customer. Thanks to the Secure ID you can retrieve your test result anonymously – provided you have registered the sample beforehand. Neither does epiAge nor do we store genetic data. epiAge only deciphers so-called methylation markers on your DNA.

Although we consider this chronological age to be our actual age, we often overlook that some people with a recorded age of 50 may be as fit as 30 years old. In order to know the actual state of health of a person, we need to determine know how to calculate biological age.
