Biohacker Ben Greenfield discusses factors that accelerate aging with TruDiagnostic.

 TruDiagnostic Founder Ryan Smith sits down with well-known fitness, wellness, and biohacking influencer Ben Greenfield, to discuss epigenetics and biological age testing.

In this video, Smith and Greenfield dive into:

  • The connection between stem cells and telomere testing. (14:05)
  • The difference between testing epigenetic biomarkers and telomere length. (16:20)
  • Different types and uses of epigenetic testing. (21:25)
  • How the millions of CpG sites in the body are tested. (28:25)
  • The key factors that indicate acceleration of aging. (38:20)
  • How your diet affects your epigenetics. (48:15)
  • Compounds that slow down aging with great efficacy. (52:30)
  • What Ryan Smith would do if his biological age was less than optimal. (59:45)



Excerpt from Ben Greenfield Fitness:

The ability to track, measure, and optimize your biological age is a field rife with confusion and a dizzying variety of testing methods such as telomere analysis and methylation clocks, transcriptomic-based, proteomic-based, and metabolomic-based predictors, and composite biomarkers.

But a new biological age test developed by a company called TruDiagnostic claims that it will change how we measure health and ultimately, how we can improve it using epigenetic testing. In this episode, my guests Ryan Smith from TruDiagnostic, and Dr. Daniel L. Stickler, talk about why this new development in epigenetics testing promises to be so revolutionary.

Ryan Smith is part of the team that developed the biological age test and worked to bring it to market. Dr. Stickler, co-founder and chief medical officer at Apeiron ZOH, Inc., is a physician to high-performing executives and entrepreneurs who want to upgrade their current state and is also an author, speaker, blogger, and podcaster.
