Predict, Measure and Take Action on Your Biological Clock l How to Slow Down the Aging Process with Hannah Went of TruDiagnostic Epigenetic Testing

Season 9 | Episode 208
1h 9m | Aug 21, 2023

We’re thrilled to bring you this conversation with Hannah Went all about aging, biological clocks and epigenetics! She brings incredible insight into the options for testing your biological age, thoughts on telomere testing, the biggest drivers of aging, and what we can learn from the Dunedin pace of aging test. Tune in if you’re interested in extending your healthspan! 

Hannah Went has a lifelong passion for longevity and breakthrough, disruptive technologies that drive radical improvement to the human condition. She attended the University of Kentucky and graduated with a degree in Biology. During that time, she had multiple research internships studying cell signaling and cell biology. After graduation, she worked for the International Peptide Society as their Director of Research and Content. Through work in the integrative medicine industry, Hannah saw an opportunity for methylation based age diagnostics and started TruDiagnostics in 2020. TruDiagnostic is a company focusing on methylation array-based diagnostics for life extension and preventive healthcare serving functional medicine providers. TruDiagnostic has a commitment to research with over 30 approved clinical trials investigating the epigenetic methylation changes of longevity and health interventions. Since TruDiagnostic’s inception, they have created one of the largest private epigenetic health databases in the world with over 15,000 patients tested to date. Hannah has since created Everything Epigenetics where she shares insights on how DNA regulation has an impact on your health.
