The biological aging clock
The model of the biological aging process is based on what is referred to as “Horvath’s clock”. This theory was founded by Steve Horvath, hence the name “Horvath’s clock”, yet it is not as simple as a clock mounted on the wall that tells time. Essentially, the clock is the scientific theory used to give you your biological age, as well as help to find what causes your cells to age quickly, and how you can reverse your age acceleration.
This is just a simplified explanation of biological age testing, the basis of how it works, and how it can be applicable to you. This post is by no means meant to cover everything there is to know about epigenetic testing and the scientific process behind how it works. If you wish to learn more about the biological aging process and how Horvath’s clock theory works, you can find a link to a Horvath article here, which goes further in-depth on the process behind age acceleration and the epigenetic clock.
