Aging is inevitable, but just because you're aging doesn't mean you can't do so gracefully.
We're pleased to see more awareness around new technologies that empower individuals to take control of their future quality of health -- for instance, as seen in CNN's recent article, You have two ages, chronological and biological. Here's why it matters. Articles like these speak to the benefits of understanding your biological age:
Chronological age isn't how old we really are. It's a superficial number," said professor David Sinclair, co-director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging at Harvard Medical School. "We all age biologically at different rates according to our genes, what we eat, how much we exercise and what environmental toxins we are exposed to. Biological age is what determines our health and ultimately our lifespan. Biological age is number of candles we really should be blowing out. In the future, with advances in our ability to control biological age, we may have even fewer candles on our cake than the previous one." Read full article here.
Here at Silene, one of the most common questions we get from our customers is "are my stem cells any good?" The complicated answer is that it will depend - and it's nearly impossible to say yes or no definitively. However, there are tests we can perform today to help analyze our customer's cells and their "quality," and we believe cell age is part of this.
As part of our mission to empower our customers to improve their future health, we now offer, Cell Age Testing & Analysis. Learning about your cell age can give an insight into how healthy your current lifestyle is - and through our partnership with award-winning physician, Dr. Myles Spar - his consultation can provide personalized suggestions towards slowing your biological aging.
Combining preservation and cell age analysis is one of the best ways to prepare yourself for the future. However - at the end of the day - we all age. Preserving your cells today is the only way of accessing your younger, healthier stem cells in the future.
