An individual not only has a chronological age but also a biological age. While your chronological age is linked to the birthdate you find on your ID, the way a body ages biologically can be different for any one of us and is linked to genetics, but also lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise and sleeping habits.
The past decades, scientists have begun to unravel the molecular mechanisms behind the ageing processes of our body. While the mechanisms are complex, it has become clear that ageing can be combatted and slowed down by the right life style choices and the right dietary choices.
Zirtui was founded by Dr. Ellen Crabbe, PhD in Molecular Biology. After being faced with the loss of close relatives due to cancer, Ellen started to study the molecular mechanisms behind disease development, inflammation and aging of the body. During her research, she developed a profound interest in nutraceuticals and how these can positively influence your health and longevity. It is Ellen’s goal to educate the wider public about longevity and to encourage them to take their health more seriously. How? By proactively taking care of their body in order to prevent complications further in life.
