What is Index?

Index uses the latest generation of an epigenetic biomarker analysis called DNAm PhenoAge to determine biological age. Elysium’s calculates your biological age by analyzing more than 100,000 sites of DNA methylation, which are epigenetic modifications to your genome that do not change your DNA but can influence gene expression. Your biological age reflects a combination of factors, including your genetics, accumulated lifestyle factors, and other determinants such as demographics, diet, and exercise habits.
