GlycanAge: Can glycans tell your biological age? Little-known molecules that can influence our health in a big way

It’s extremely important to quantify the state of our health, because the data provide ways to act upon and improve various aspects of health. This is why I track my HRV continuously and perform regular blood tests. Marina Martinic Kavur at Genos shares with us how measuring your glycans, specifically immunoglobulin G (IgG) glycans can provide an uniquely valuable and actionable insight into our biological age.
