What are biomarkers?

  • Created

Biomarkers are parameters that indicate whether processes in the body are in a healthy range or not. Biomarkers include proteins, hormones, genes, metabolites and many more.
All substances in the body that can provide information about what is happening to a biological process and can also be objectively measured are considered biomarkers.
Since biomarkers show how the processes in your body work, we can use them to get an idea of your physical condition.
A simple blood analysis will tell you whether you are getting enough trace elements, as an example. This is how certain diseases can be prevented by adjusting your diet and lifestyle.
