If you’ve ever celebrated your birthday, you know what chronological age is. However, there’s a “second age” most people don’t know about called ‘biological age’ which represents our body’s age at a biochemical level.
This concept reflects your lifestyle choices, genetics, and overall risk for different aging-related diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and more. At Biotein, we’re building a low-cost and easy-to-use test that reveals your current biological age by measuring/analyzing the levels of different proteins in your saliva.
First, we send a protein-measurement test using the same fast technology as pregnancy tests to you, where you can use a cellphone reader to get results on your protein levels. Enter those results into our website, and we’ll give you your very own biological age estimate.
But, there’s more! We also provide recommendations and lifestyle advice to lower your biological age and lead a healthier life. To track your improvement over time, our low-cost ($30 dollars or so a purchase) subscription platform makes it easy to re-order. The test will become available for ordering in less than a year, but in the meantime, sign up for our newsletter to get monthly updates about our progress.
