Biological Age is how rapidly your body is aging. Chronological Age is how many candles are on your birthday cake, or how many years you've been on this earth. While Chronological Age is just a number that shows the passage of time, Biological Age is a reflection of your body's current health.
Most outward signs of aging and age-related diseases are caused by cells losing function, when their genes stop regulating them appropriately. By slowing down your Biological Aging, you're keeping genes activated that tell your cells to act younger.
Younger cells heal faster, and do their jobs more efficiently, regardless of how many birthday candles you have.
What Influences Biological Aging?
Biological Age consists of what you inherited from your parents, what you developed during your childhood, and everyday lifestyle influences like sleep, stress, smoking, nutrition, exercise habits, and much more.
Since over half of your DNA Methylation is changeable, you can significantly change your Biological Age to increase both your lifespan, and your long-term quality of life as it relates to your health.

If you’re aging faster than you should, you’ll have an increased risk of age-related disease, and are more likely to show signs of aging earlier in life.
You can change your pace of aging with lifestyle choices, and TruAge™ can break it down to what part of your aging is due to the uncontrollable passage of time, vs what YOU can control, with your everyday habits.

Biological Age FAQs
What is biological age testing?
Biological Age is a measure of how your lifestyle, nutrition, illness, and genetics have affected your body and vital organs, such as your liver and kidneys. Your Age Score can provide insights so you can make changes that will improve your overall wellness and longevity.
What is epigenetics?
Epigenetics is the study of how your behaviors and environment can cause changes in how your genes work. Gene changes are permanent, but epigenetic changes are not. They can change how your body reads a DNA sequence, but they don't change the DNA sequence itself.
How do biological age tests work?
Regen IV Wellness uses the TruAge tests to determine your biological age. TruAge pulls various data points, markers, and uses algorithms to uncover patterns and determine your biological age. The test consists of collecting a small blood sample. Once your test is processed, you'll receive a detailed report of your results as well as a customized health plan to address your specific results.
What are the benefits of taking a biological age test?
Taking a biological age test can help you identify and get ahead of any potential illnesses, chronic diseases, and family health history concerns. Being proactive with a customized Regen IV Wellness health plan targeting the results of your biological age test can help you steer clear of potential health issues in the future.
Are there any risks associated with taking a biological age test?
There aren't any risks associated with the testing process. The benefits include longevity and happier, healthier quality of life.
How accurate are biological age tests?
As with any lab testing, TruAge is not 100% accurate and not a means for diagnoses. TruAge is a tool for you to use to help predict potential genetic predispositions as well as environmental and lifestyle conditions that contribute to the aging process.
What do the results of a biological age test mean?
The results of your TruAge test are intended to provide you and one of our practitioners with a guide post for improving your health through holistic treatments, lifestyle, and environmental changes that can increase longevity, slow aging, and improve quality of life.
