What is it and what is it used for?
The Cellular Aging Factors determine the oxidation stress and cell aging profile by analysing specific biomarkers that evaluate the state of four key processes in our organism: methylation, inflammation, glycation and oxidation.
The test aims at responding to certain concerns that the population feels regarding ageing better: usually the damage and symptoms caused by oxidation stress and cell aging are hard to identify without specific tests, as the process whereby the free radicals attack the cells and alter their functions is slow and virtually painless.
Who should take the test?
The test is recommended for everybody, and is useful to evaluate the level of cell aging and prevent the correlated pathologies, like diabetes and hypertension, and also cardiovascular pathologies like arteriosclerosis, stroke, infarction and myocardium. It is also useful in the case of early skin aging or heavy oxidation stress, and to identify metabolic deficiencies.
In particular, we recommend the Cellular Aging Factors if:
- You suffer from psycho-emotive and social stress.
- You are overweight, or have a form of android obesity (“apple shaped”) and want to begin a slimming plan.
- You are a woman and want to prevent or treat cutaneous blemishes, from unattractive expression lines through to cellulitis.
- You suffer from chronic fatigue or continuous tiredness.
Where and how to take the test?
The test involves analysing a blood sample, and can be requested in analysis laboratories, medical centres, health spas and pharmacies that offer NatrixLab diagnosis services.
Preparing for the exam: fast for at least 8 hours before the sample is taken.
We cannot stop the aging process but we can do a lot to slow it down, by following a healthy correct diet including the use of phytotherapy, if the specialist recommends, and leading a correct lifestyle.
Repeating the test
We recommend repeating the test after about 4 months. To monitor treatment or a pathology, we recommend repeating the test according to your doctor’s instructions.
