Blood Age - your blood has a story to tell

Our Blood Age Clock is a revolutionary tool for understanding and tracking the ageing process at the cellular level.

Using a simple blood test, our clock accurately measures the biological age and provides a comprehensive report on the health of your blood and overall aging status.

Blood Age Clock looks at the internal state of your body to give a more accurate representation of your true age.

This information can be used to make lifestyle and healthcare decisions that can help you age healthier and live longer.

With our Blood Age Clock, you can:

  • Understand your current ageing status and identify potential health risks.
  • Track changes in your blood age over time and monitor the effectiveness of interventions.
  • Make informed decisions about your health and wellness based on data-driven insights.

  • Your doctor will typically only mention biomarkers outside normal range, such as cholesterol or iron deficiency.
  • Blood Age clock can use the same report to accurately predict your biological age and analyse which blood markers are affecting the ageing process the most.
  • Biological Age is a measure of how lifestyle, nutrition, illness, and genetics have affected your body and vital organs, such as your liver and kidneys.
  • The Age Score you receive from taking this test provides insights so you can make changes that will improve your overall wellness and healthspan.

What is biological age?

Biological age is a measure of how old your body behaves physiologically, and it is different from chronological age, which is based on when you were born[1]. 
 
Biological age can explain why individuals of the same age have profound differences in capabilities, and why some people are healthier than others[1]. 
 
Biological age can be negatively affected by your environment, undesirable dietary habits, lack of proper exercise, physical or mental health issues, and social isolation [1]. 
 
The BloodAge analysis uses blood biomarkers and a research-validated algorithm to provide scores that estimate a person's biological, liver, kidney, lipid, metabolic, and blood ages. 
 
Research indicates that biological age is a better predictor of disease risk than chronological age and is highly associated with all-cause mortality and risk for numerous adverse health conditions like diabetes, cancer, dementia, and organ-specific damage[1][2]. 

  • Biological age can be positively influenced by factors such as genetics, diet, exercise, biomarkers, and sleep.
  • Exercise can improve biological age on a cellular level, and different forms of exercise can activate longevity genes, thereby improving healthspan.
  • Biological age is a better predictor of physical wellness than chronological age, and it is important for maintaining energy, normal immune function, and healthy heart and circulation.

Why should I get this analysis?

You should get this analysis if you want to live a healthier, longer life, have a family history of disease or disease risk, are interested in biohacking, proactively make healthy changes, want to learn what internal organs or systems need your attention, or want more insight about your health status after a recent illness or injury. 

The analysis will provide you with personal Age Scores displayed on an easy-to-read dashboard with a description of what each one means and what is aging you.

How does it work?

The Blood Age analysis uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to create an in-depth and accurate picture of your biological age. 
 
By mapping and integrating your personal results, the analysis can identify the actions you should take to maintain or improve your health. 
 
The analysis predicts your Biological Age, which is a better predictor of your physical age than your chronological age. 
 
It also analyses your Blood Panel, Lipid Panel, Liver Panel, Kidney Panel, and Metabolic Panel to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of your health status.

What are the steps to get the Blood Age analysis?

  1. Ask your healthcare practitioner to order the Blood Age analysis. Your healthcare practitioner will inform you about which blood tests to get.
  2. Gather the results from the various blood tests and provide the blood test reports to your healthcare practitioner.

Your biomarkers will be analysed using machine learning to create the most in-depth and accurate picture of your health and biological age.

You will receive an age score and insights. Make an appointment with your healthcare practitioner to discuss the report and design an action plan.

Note: The Blood Age analysis is not a diagnostic tests in itself. It is based on an in-depth analysis of the blood tests you have supplied.

The BloodAge Analysis is available to any healthcare practitioner from anywhere in the world.

What are the benefits of the Blood Age analysis?

The Blood Age analysis can benefit individuals who are seeking to enhance their longevity, minimize age-related health risks, maximize health and wellness, track the aging process, optimise their internal health for fitness or athletic performance, recovery, immune function, biohacking, and whole-body health. 
 
There are several biomarkers that can be measured to estimate biological age, including telomere length, DNA methylation, proteomics, metabolomics, glycomics, and data gleaned from wearables.

The Blood Age analysis uses a feature-set of 45 circulating blood biomarkers to estimate biological age with higher accuracy than other tests.

Sample Report

Here are some extracts from a report for a 61 year old male. His blood age was 60, one year below his actual chronological age. His optimal biological age to aim for is 58 years.

It is always interesting to compare one's data with the average. For this person, his blood age is above average. 65% of people show an older blood age than their actual age. There is still room for improvement as 35% have a younger blood age.

The report provides a clear graphic representation of the biomarkers that need attention. The test can utilise up to 45 common biomarkers. The blood tests incorporating these biomarkers are included in common blood tests available from your doctor.

 

Importantly, the report shows the specific biomarkers associated with an increased blood age:

 

The report provides the target blood age. For this person, the target blood age is 58. The report provides the steps that could be taken to reach this goal. There would be many lifestyle, supplemental and medical interventions available to enhance the blood age.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the cost of the Blood Age analysis?

The Blood Age analysis costs $120.

Why do I need to consult a healthcare practitioner?

While the results of the Blood Age test are easy to read and understand, you will need expert advice about the lifestyle, natural and pharmaceutical interventions that may be required to improve your health. The Blood Age test provides a great framework for a discussion about your health with your preferred healthcare practitioner such as a general practitioner, specialist, or allied healthcare professional including dietician, nutritionist or naturopath.

Does the Blood Age analysis include the cost of the blood tests?

No, the Blood Age test is for the enhanced analysis only. You will need to speak with your doctor regarding your desire to embark on a programme of preventative healthcare and ask them to support your efforts by ordering the required blood tests. The blood tests are the very common tests done for red and white blood cells, liver and kidney function, cholesterol etc.

How often should I take the Blood Age analysis?

It is recommended to take the Blood Age analysis every 4-6 months while you work on improving your health. If you can afford it, you can pay for having the tests done as often as you like, however, it would be reasonable to have Medicare covering the costs of such tests twice a year initially and then yearly once you have achieved a better biological age.

How do I order the Blood Age analysis?

Please speak to your preferred healthcare practitioner. They can order the analysis from us. Please ask them to contact us via our contact form.
