What are glycans?
Glycans are sugar molecules that surround and modify proteins in your body. They respond to your lifestyle choices and can accurately indicate your biological age.
Glycans have a large influence on your unique biology and are regulated almost equally by our genes on one side and environment and lifestyle choices on the other.
How do Glycans relate to health and aging?
Glycans play a vital role in keeping us healthy but are also involved in most major diseases. As we age, the balance of pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory glycans in our body changes.
Various inflammatory effectors like excessive or unsuitable diet or fitness regimen, hormone changes, surrounding environment, ethnic background, etc. can cause an imbalance and can speed up the process of ageing and increase the risk for many diseases.
