Lipoprotein Particle Testing in Southampton, PA - Affinity Well Spa


SpectraCell’s Telomere Test will tell you what your true cellular age is. Lipoprotein Particle Testing measures the length of your telomeres or the end caps of your DNA. Telomere gets shorter when a cell divides until no more telomere is left to protect DNA from unraveling. The long longer your telomeres are, the younger your biological age. A telomere’s rate of becoming shorter is accelerated by oxidative stress, inflammation, nutritional deficiencies, genetics, and other lifestyle habits. Telomere shortening contributes to cardiovascular disease, stroke, dementia, and cancers.
Micronutrients have direct implications for telomere length. Therefore, your need to correct your micronutrient balances, and micronutrient balances need to be maintained.

In addition, measuring total antioxidant capacity through Spectrox® is important to determine the body’s ability to handle oxidated stresses that contribute to telomere health and length.

MTHFR (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase)
Mutation in the MTHFR enzyme affecting the metabolism of homocysteine and causes accumulations. This accumulation impairs methylation or the biochemical process involved ed in numerous functions in your body. This function includes cellular repair, energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter production, immunity, and others. In addition, MTHFR mutations are linked to increased risk for cardiovascular disease, blood vessel damage, blood clots or thrombosis, stroke, and degenerative aging.
