Dr. Longo’s top 5 biomarkers for longevity and biological age | Valter Longo

Parent Episode: Dr. Valter Longo on Resetting Autoimmunity and Rejuvenating Systems with Prolonged Fasting & the FMD

Several biomarkers can be measured that estimate biological age as it compares to chronological age. These include IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor 1), insulin, glucose, C-reactive protein (a measure of systemic inflammation), triglycerides, and blood pressure. In addition, pathological conditions, such as fatty liver disease can affect cellular function and glucose regulation. Clinical biomarkers examining the methylation profile as an estimator of biological age are expected to be on the market soon. In this clip, Dr. Valter Longo highlights which biomarkers, both currently available and forthcoming, that he considers relevant when assessing longevity and biological age.
