All of the epigenetic indicators of health that we provide are defined from DNA methylation marks. These are chemical tags which act a bit like bookmarks, helping your cells understand which genes should be ‘on’ and which should be ‘off’. Unlike your genetic code, these chemical tags are not fixed from birth and they are affected by factors such as environment, lifestyle and age. Using this epigenetic data and machine learning we can calculate personalised indicators of health, just like your biological age.
