Healthy Aging Panel (Basic)
Item Catalog Number: LC100025
The rate at which people age varies widely and the hallmarks of aging, such as loss of muscle tone and energy, a declining immune system, increased levels of body fat, arthritis, diabetes, heart disease and a depleted memory occurs much faster in some individuals than others.
Why does the difference exist? The answer is gene expression ... in other words, it depends whether or not you are running your aging software at optimal levels.
The good news is that improving our aging software is an attainable goal since aging is fundamentally a metabolic process! This panel addresses basic aging biomarkers associated with inflammation, vitamin and mineral balance, sugar and lipid control, immune function, and thyroid regulation.
