The concept of measuring the difference between chronologic and biologic aging is a new phenomenon. First it was telomere length, but that hasn’t proven to be accurate. Many new metrics have since followed. Few have panned out to be accurate as we dive deeper. Often in science its not the obvious or sexy stuff that has real meaning. It’s usually the things right under our nose that have been around for decades, and thus, often ignored. What if the targets to accurately measure biologic aging are already in our hands? Today we will discuss a new program that is offered to laypeople that unlocks the target markers of biologic aging. Understanding these will help provide accurate data-points to assess if what you are doing is actually working. We will also explain how you can become certified yourself.
