HEALTHY AGING – WE KEEP WOMEN YOUNGER LONGER
A gene test as a starting point for healthy aging
Slowing down the biological clock – only recently this still sounded like pure science fiction, but thanks to many years of research in the areas of genetics and epigenetics, it has now become a reality. Using a modern gene test, our biological age and, among other things, our metabolic and sports type can also be determined. Scientific findings in epigenetics show how we can regulate our genes and preventively influence 70 percent of the aging process – for example through lifestyle and nutrition interventions.
What a drop of blood tells us about our biological age, our metabolism and our sports type
A single drop of blood, which can be obtained very easily and almost painlessly with just a simple pinprick, can already provide information about our biological age. Undesired factors of the aging process – for example internal inflammation symptoms and a decline in DNA stability – are also recognised, making it possible to prevent premature aging and the emergence of diseases in a timely manner.
The genetic analysis of our blood can achieve even more: it can be used to determine our individual metabolic type – including how the body handles carbohydrates, proteins or fats. For example, if a woman’s metabolic type is the “fat type” and she consumes too little fats on the basis of prevailing notions of healthy nutrition, her metabolism and the associated weight management cannot function properly. Also included in the analysis is a tendency to cravings or snacks between meals – and the overall projection for weight loss and stabilisation as well as the status of metabolic regulation.
The sports type can also be determined on the basis of the genes: for example, if a woman spends years at an endurance sport like jogging when she is actually more the weight training type, she will not experience much success. Because a woman’s genes are much more powerful at determining what kind of training is good and effective than current trends.
la puraMed Healthy Aging: individually coordinated program to reduce the determined biological age
Based on all this information obtained from the gene test, la pura will prepare a scientifically based, individually suitable Healthy Aging programme for every woman. The goal is to focus on those 70 percent of the aging process that we can actively influence.
Carefully coordinated therapies, medical treatments and all kinds of tips to take back home cover all the Healthy Aging pillars, from lifestyle via mental balance and exercise to nutrition. At la pura there is also plenty of individual inspiration: mental, sports- and nutrition-related or cosmetic. The la pura promise: After just a week of Healthy Aging, your biological clock will already be slowing down!
