What is epigenetics? - Muhdo

What is epigenetics?

Epigenetics controls how your genes behave. You are born with your genetic makeup, but you can affect your epigenetics through your lifestyle.

What is Biological Age?

We actually have two ages: Chronological age and biological age.

Your chronological age is the exact number of years that you have been alive. Whereas your biological age is the true reflection of how your cells are ageing. Your biological age and internal health can be affected by your diet, exercise, lifestyle and environment.

Muhdo’s bioinformatics and science teams have identified the genes – as well as the specific biomarkers which sit upon them – that correlate to cellular ageing.

Where is epigenetics currently used?

Epigenetics is currently used for cancer diagnostics, elite athletes and as an advanced wellness tool for High Net Worth Individuals. Muhdo is the first company in the world to offer an epigenetics profiling programme direct to consumers for monitoring epigenetics on a regular basis.

What is the science behind it?

Epigenetics is the process by which the DNA methyltransferase (MTase) family of enzymes catalyze the transfer of a methyl group to DNA. When the methyl groups are added to the DNA molecule, it can change the activity of a DNA segment (like a mutation) without changing the sequence inherited from parents. Although your DNA does not change, MTase disrupts the activity of a DNA segment so it behaves in a different way, either amplifying positive change or mitigating negative potential.
