What is the Telomere Length Test?

Current research shows that telomere shortening contributes to cellular aging and susceptibility to metabolic disorders and chronic disease.

According to scientific research, telomere shortening may contribute to aging and age-related conditions. Telomeres are segments of DNA found at the ends of chromosomes. They can be prematurely shortened when exposed to environmental chemicals, oxidation, inflammation, and stress. This leads to DNA damage and contributes to early cell death.
