In today’s society we are preoccupied with how old we appear on the outside, yet superficial looks can be deceiving – a true measure of health, beauty and the steps we can take to slow our aging can only be seen on the inside.
InsideTracker, leaders in personal health analytics, today announced InnerAge, a groundbreaking service that helps people take steps to look and feel younger while prolonging life. Unlike anything that has gone before, InnerAge helps people understand, manage and optimize the unique factors within their own bodies that are impacting the way they age.
Developed over the past two years by some of the world’s leading authorities on aging, nutrition and exercise physiology, InnerAge analyzes the blood biomarkers most scientifically proven to impact longevity to assess a person’s biological/physiological age versus their chronological age. Its sophisticated algorithm then goes on to suggest five personalized “Focus Foods” with the largest potential to optimize these biomarkers, thereby lowering a person’s InnerAge and helping them slow the effects of aging from the inside out.
InnerAge is not an anti-aging solution offering quick fixes or cosmetic shortcuts but instead helps people make sense of the most reliable science on aging to make lasting changes that can be tracked over time. Following a simple blood test, the InnerAge intuitive dashboard provides a wealth of information on the results as well as nutrition advice to improve outcomes.
By following its recommendations, people can optimize their InnerAge to be up to 15 years younger than their actual age and also catch early warning signs that could negatively impact their longevity.
The expert research team behind InnerAge, analyzed and reviewed hundreds of clinical trial studies and peer reviewed articles to identify the five key biomarkers with the highest correlation to longevity. They also ruled out biomarkers such as cholesterol that did not show strong empirical connection to longevity. The five include:
- Vitamin D
- hsCRP (an inflammation indicator)
- ALT (a liver damage indicator)
The team reads like the “Who’s Who” of aging research and includes among others, Professor David Sinclair, Harvard Medical School, named by TIME as one of the world’s one hundred most influential people and author of 162 publications in aging research, Professor Lenny Guarente from MIT’s Biology Department, one of the world’s leading academic researchers in Aging having written more than 200 publication in the field of metabolism and aging and Dr. Gil Blander, founder and Chief Science officer InsideTracker whose extensive postgraduate research on aging at MIT was the genesis of InnerAge.
“A person’s InnerAge is impacted by the decision they make every day,” says Dr. Gil Blander, Founder and Chief Science Officer of InsideTracker. “We created InnerAge to be an easy-to-understand platform to help people make smart decisions based on the most advanced science available. By providing a tangible value – ones physiological age, we are giving people an immediately understandable benchmark and strong motivational force to modify their behavior to optimize their health, minimize age related diseases and prolong life.”
Regardless of age, everyone has the potential to optimize their longevity by taking simple steps to manage the biomarkers, most importantly glucose, the team discovered most impacted aging. As Dr. Blander continues to explain, “Crucially, to optimize longevity, people need to manage and optimize their bodies’ glucose, vitamin D and inflammation levels, as well as improving their liver function. Signing up to InnerAge fine tunes your body’s performance – like taking your car in for a service fine tunes your car’s engine. Advice is geared to your body, but could include eating avocados, beans, and artichoke to reduce glucose or salmon, cheese and mushrooms to increase levels of vitamin D.”
As the scientific knowledge on aging continues to evolve so too will InnerAge. The team will continually update the algorithm and platform as new research becomes available. Priced at $99, InnerAge is the latest addition to the InsideTracker range of analytical plans which range from $49 – $499 that address various wellness needs:
