Do You Know How Quickly You‘ve Been Aging?
It turns out that everyone ages at a different rate. Studies have found associations between healthy living factors—like diet, exercise habits, alcohol consumption, and stressors like sleepless nights—and biological age. So how can you get real insight into how your body is actually aging?
Discover your Biological Age
Get ready to take control of your future. Using a saliva sample from you, we extract your DNA and read sites across your genome where methylation, a type of epigenetic change, has occurred. We analyze over 100,000 sites of DNA methylation to calculate your biological age.
“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 Science Behind Index
Morgan Levine, Ph.D., Yale School of Medicine assistant professor and Elysium bioinformatics advisor, spearheaded the development of our proprietary Index platform. In 2018, Levine developed a novel epigenetic biomarker analysis to assess “phenotypic age,” or what we now call biological age.
Index is powered by the Elysium chip, developed with the help of Illumina, a global leader in DNA sequencing and array-based technologies. Index uses Elysium’s next-generation technology Algorithmic Platform for Epigenetic Examination (APEX) to assess and analyze your epigenetics from a saliva sample.See the Science

What Is DNA Methylation, and What Does It Tell Us About Our Health and Wellness?
Everyone knows that DNA is the code that makes you, well, you. But did you know that that code can be used by your body in different ways?
