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 to your biological age.
Glycans influence a person’s unique biology and are regulated almost equally by genes on one side and environment and lifestyle choices on the other.
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.
