The science
of GlycanAge


Your GlycanAge is the most accurate guide to your biological age. Our innovative test has been developed by researching over 60,000 people worldwide.


What are glycans?

Glycans are one of four building blocks of life (alongside proteins, nucleic acids and lipids). They are complex sugars that are involved in almost every process in our body.

Every person in the world has a particular glycosylation pattern - a bit like DNA. But unlike DNA, we have the power to affect our glycans by improving our health and lifestyle.

Many external factors that could affect our health leave a mark on our glycan pattern. Through researching more than 60,000 people worldwide, we’re able to accurately analyse these patterns. The result is the most accurate biological age - your GlycanAge.


Why is biological age important?

Age. We all know it’s just a number. What if you had a better number? One that gave you a more accurate idea of your health. Your biological age - your GlycanAge.

This single number could empower you to stay healthier, and younger, for longer. Because unlike normal age, your lifestyle choices can affect your GlycanAge. Using pioneering science, you can now discover your GlycanAge, and turn back the hands of time.


The GlycanAge method

First we take a small blood sample. It’s quick, safe and virtually pain-free.

Using a process called liquid chromatography we analyse your glycans. Your sample is sent to the world’s leading high-throughput glycoanalytical laboratory.  Our experts will analyse your immunoglobulin G glycan pattern. 4 weeks after your sample has been received in the lab, you’ll get your GlycanAge results. You’ll be able to make informed decisions about your health and lifestyle. Because with knowledge comes control.
