The Glycanage Test
To test the impact of Somarka water on human health, we undertook extremely precise and thoroughly researched scientific research: GlycanAge tests. According to GlycanAge, their test is the most accurate test of biological age and wellness available.
It determines your biological age, the age of your immune system and shows how healthy you actually are.
GlycanAge team is the world leader in glyco-science. Their award-winning scientists are at the forefront of biochemistry and molecular biology. They have studied ageing for over 20 years and published their findings in more than 120 scientific journals.
How do Glycans affect health and ageing?
Glycans play a vital role in keeping us healthy but are also involved in most major diseases. As we age, the balance of pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory glycans in our body changes.
Various inflammatory effectors like excessive or unsuitable diet or fitness regimen, hormone changes, surrounding environment, ethnic background, etc. can cause an imbalance between pro and anti-inflammatory glycans. This leads to low-grade systemic inflammation, which can speed up the process of ageing and increase the risk for many diseases.”
What are glycans?
Glycans are sugar molecules that surround and modify proteins in your body. They respond to your lifestyle choices and indicate the inflammatory state of your immune system, which in turn determines your biological age.
Glycans have a large influence on your unique biology and are regulated almost equally by our genes on one side and environment and lifestyle choices on the other.
How does GycanAge determine biological age?
GlycanAge determines your biological age by looking at the state of your immune system and inflammation.
We analyse the glycans attached to the most common antibody in your blood, called Immunoglobulin G or IgG.
The type of glycans attached to IgG are able to change the function of IgG from pro-inflammatory to anti-inflammatory and vice versa.
We need both functions for a strong immune system, but the balance between them will determine our general health status and consequentially our biological age.
“Glycans are directly involved in the pathophysiology of every major disease…”
-US National Academies, 2012
We took participants of both sexes and various ages. They took the first GlycanAge test to create a base point. They then started drinking Somarka water on a daily basis, at least one litre a day for three months, after which they took the second test. Participants of the study didn’t change any of their regular lifestyle routines. Everything stayed the same except the water they drank.
The results were astonishing!
All of the participants except one experienced 1-12 biological age reversal within only 3 months of drinking the water. They literally became years younger!”
What’s interesting is that there were people whose first test revealed that they were a bit younger biologically than their chronological age (due to a healthy lifestyle) but even they experienced additional biological age reversal.
