Ageing is a natural process, but did you know your biological age can differ significantly from your chronological age? Factors like your lifestyle choices, environment, and stress levels can either accelerate or decelerate your body’s ageing. The Tru-Age test offers a comprehensive analysis of your ageing rate and biological age (Tru-Age Complete only), empowering you to take control of your health and well-being.

What is Epigenetic Testing?

Epigenetics is the fascinating science that studies how your behaviours, including your diet and lifestyle, and environment can cause changes that affect the way your genes work. Unlike genetic changes, epigenetic changes are reversible and do not change your DNA sequence. The Tru Age test uses the principles of epigenetics to provide a comprehensive analysis of your health and ageing process.

What is DNA Methylation?

One of the key aspects of epigenetics is DNA methylation. This is a process by which methyl groups are added to the DNA molecule, modifying the function of the genes and affecting gene expression. The Tru Age test looks at these methylation markers to determine your biological age. Their sophisticated algorithms identify how quickly the body is ageing at a biological level.

Why Measure Your Rate of Ageing and Biological Age?

Accelerated biological ageing is the leading predictor of chronic disease and mortality. Individuals with a younger biological age have a lower risk of age-related diseases. Therefore, accurately measuring biological age is essential for healthcare practitioners to determine the need for and extent of age-reversal interventions. Additionally, repeating the Tru Age test allows us to track the effectiveness of lifestyle and treatment changes over time.

Tru-Age Insights into Biological Age

Dunnedin Pace

Included with TruAge COMPLETE and TruAge PACE.

The Dunnedin Pace marker assesses the speed at which your body accumulates biological aging damage. Think of it as a measure of your cellular wear and tear over time. The slower your Dunnedin Pace, the less biological aging you experience, which means a healthier, potentially longer life. This pace is influenced by various factors, including your genetics, lifestyle, and environmental exposures.

Telomere Length

Included with TruAge COMPLETE and TruAge PACE.

Telomeres are the protective caps at the ends of your chromosomes, akin to the plastic tips on shoelaces, preventing them from fraying. Telomere length is a marker of cellular aging; shorter telomeres indicate more cell division and a higher biological age.

Intrinsic and Extrinsic Age

Included with TruAge COMPLETE.

Intrinsic Age represents your body’s biological age based solely on internal factors, such as your genetics and inherent physiological processes. In contrast, Extrinsic Age takes into account those external factors, reflecting how lifestyle choices, environmental exposures, and health behaviours impact your biological age. Understanding both can provide a comprehensive picture of your aging process and highlight areas for improvement.

Omics Age

Included with TruAge COMPLETE.

Omics Age is a holistic measure of biological age, derived from analyzing complex biological data, including genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics. It integrates information from your genes, proteins, and metabolites to provide a detailed snapshot of your body’s functional age. This marker helps in understanding how well your body is functioning at a molecular level, offering insights into potential health risks and areas where intervention might be needed to promote healthy aging.

How Tru Age Epigenetic Testing Works

The Tru-Age test is recognised as a world-leading tool in the field of biometric testing, validated through rigorous scientific research and peer-reviewed studies that confirm its accuracy and reliability in measuring biological age.

Hi, I’m Stephen Ward from Fairfield Nutrition. As a Functional Medicine practitioner, I’ve witnessed first hand how lifestyle and environmental factors can profoundly impact our health and the ageing process. This led me to delve into the field of epigenetics and the Tru Age test, a revolutionary tool that goes beyond traditional health assessments.

The Tru Age Test: A Revolutionary Tool

The Tru Age test offers insights beyond what traditional tests can provide. It’s not just about knowing your biological age but understanding what it means for your health and how you can potentially slow down the ageing process.

Personalized Consultation

We offer the Tru Age test along with a consultation to discuss your results, their implications, and what changes you can make to reduce your biological age. Together, we can create a personalized plan to optimize your health and longevity.
