“I was extremely interested to learn about my age in TeloYears. The test was super easy to perform and the results were simple to understand. I really appreciated the information included in the results - it helped me to understand what the research says about lifestyle factors and telomere length. I look forward to testing yearly with TeloYears.”
“As a 21 year retired veteran of the U.S. Army currently studying as a Family Nurse Practitioner, I was pleasantly surprised when my healthy lifestyle was reflected in my age in TeloYears. The Blueprint for Healthy Aging provided as part of my results package is based on reliable, peer reviewed literature that enabled me to do my own research to validate the science.”
“I would recommend the TeloYears DNA test to friends who have inquiring minds. I found the experience valuable because it gives new information about how your body works that you couldn't have known a few years ago.”
“Taking the TeloYears test was a lot easier than I thought. The directions were so easy and it was painless. The finger stick method is so much easier than a blood draw!
I honestly thought I was going to be younger in TeloYears, but I discovered that I’m three years older than my actual age. I’m glad I took the test as I now have some serious motivation to change some things that I am doing. I look forward to being able to take the test again to see if I can improve my results.”
“I decided to take TeloYears because I’m fascinated with my "internal age" as I proactively do everything I can to lead a healthy lifestyle. I thought that the TeloYears results were really easy to understand and relate to. I was happy with my results but am still aiming to up my game to see if I can get a lower age in TeloYears the next time I test.”
