System Ages: The Latest Evolution of Index
Understand your body like never before with new system age scores.
System ages reflect the biological ages of nine systems: brain, heart, metabolic, immune, inflammation, kidney, liver, hormone, and blood. Track these over time to understand how each system contributes to your overall long-term health and wellness.
Do You Know How Fast You’ve Been Aging?
Unlike chronological age, which tells you the number of years you’ve been alive, biological age reflects the age your body (or system) is expected to perform or function. Using your saliva sample, Index analyzes methylation patterns across your genome. DNA methylation is an epigenetic modification that influences how genes are expressed and their genome-wide pattern changes predictably with age.See the Science
“Index shows incredible promise when it comes to monitoring how the body is capable of functioning and there is potential for even more diverse applications in the future…The more measures to capture specific processes, the more we can actually understand what's unique for an individual.”
From Epigenetic Insights to Action
It turns out that everyone ages at a different rate. Knowing your unique cumulative rate of aging gives you actionable insight you can start using today. How? Studies have found associations between lifestyle factors—diet, exercise habits, alcohol consumption, and stressors like sleepless nights—and biological age.
Index offers more than 100 science-based lifestyle recommendations drawn from this research.

System Ages: A Deeper Understanding of How You’ve Been Aging
System ages represent the biological age of individual systems–including brain, heart, metabolic, and immune–and provide a snapshot of their relative contribution to your overall long-term health and wellness. Learn how we measure them and what they mean to you.
