Glycans, alongside nucleic acids (DNA & RNA), proteins and lipids, are one of the four primary components of a cell.


Scientific research is currently assessing what influence environmental factors can have on glycans through monitoring how lifestyle changes can impact an individual’s biological age.

The aim is to empower people to better manage their health, make improvements, and ideally, slow down biological age.

The GlycanAge test was developed in the GENOS Glycoscience Research Laboratory. It is not a diagnostic test and the results of this test should be interpreted in the context of other relevant laboratory tests and clinical data.

The interpretation of the results should only be done by an authorised physician or other qualified health care provider. The information provided in these results are not intended to be substitutes for professional medical advice, diagnoses or/and treatment. You should always speak to your physician before you change, start or stop any part of your health care plan, including physical activity or exercise.
