What our customers are saying

My girlfriend (55) and I (61) started Boost and Core products in June. There is definitely a very notable difference in our general well being. We are lifelong athletes and had the normal aches and pains associated with abusing our bodies. For me the range of motion and reduction in joint pain has been very noticeable. I am doing nothing different from a training perspective, and my diet is essentially the same as it was prior to taking Core/Boost. In fact both of us consume more wine then we should which probably reduces the potential benefits. I used to take NSAID on a regular basis to manage joint pain and I can’t tell you the last time I have taken any!!! Oh yes, I cannot forget the improved cognitive function. Harder to measure but we both agree there is a certain level of improvement in our mental energy. Our “spirit” seems lighter, younger. We “feel” younger mentally.

What sold me was the all-in-one approach of targeting the root causes of aging rather than just 1 or 2 (or none at all). I follow the science pretty closely and can definitely say NOVOS knows their sh**. Their customer service answers my questions and takes my feedback. You can tell they’re passionate about making such a complicated topic simple because of all the amazing free content they share. I love that their formulations evolve as the science evolves, too. This is the best we can do today given what we know about aging.

I tested my biological age with an epigenetic test prior to starting Novos Core. I was 1.8 years younger than my chronological age. I started daily Novos Core packets and six months later, I repeated the test. I was 8.4 years younger than my chrono age! I tried to keep everything else constant except for this supplement. I am excited about the results!


I took a blood epigenetic test before starting on NOVOS. I was 72 years old and the result said bio age 71. I then took Core and Boost consistently over 6 months, made sure not to add or remove any other supplements or make any significant lifestyle changes, then retested. I turned 73 and the result came back as bio age 63 – minus 10 years! I asked the lab to check if there were any errors in their analysis. To my delight, there wasn’t! Over those 6 months I noticed subtle improvements in my energy and got compliments from friends and family on my complexion. Here I am two years later and I’m still being complimented on my skin.

    When will you see results?

    Consistent, daily use of NOVOS Core impacts the major hallmarks of aging. This will help you achieve your maximum lifespan potential, which is the key long-term benefit that you may not perceive on a daily basis.

    Most users report seeing or feeling a noticeable benefit within 30 days. However, every body is different, and the benefits you see or feel (skin health, energy, sleep, mood, etc.) should be considered as added benefits. As long as you continue your daily intake, the beneficial nutrients are doing their work inside to optimize your health.

    2 Weeks

    Many users report being more energized, feeling calm, or sleeping better. Others experience improved cognition. It’s normal to not perceive benefits yet.

    6 Weeks

    Many users report visible signs of skin improvements. Starting to revitalize cellular health.

    3 Months

    Further improvements in skin texture and look, improved metabolism. Health continues to optimize.

    1 Year

    Continuously increased general well-being and slower pace of aging.

    The DunedinPACE Rate of Aging Clock that we offer in NOVOS Age is the most advanced epigenetic clock on the market, and is the most accurate way currently available to detect changes to your biological aging. In fact, the innovative algorithms use machine learning to improve. That
    means, each time you test, the clocks become increasingly accurate.

    By tracking your rate of aging, you’ll be able to see how your lifestyle is impacting your biological age in significantly less time than by looking at your biological age: it is more sensitive to change, and changes more quickly.

    During your Longevity Journey, NOVOS will provide you with valuable information and insights on how to slow your aging process. This epigenetic aging report is a great and important start.

    NOVOS Core is calorie free and sugar free. No artificial colors, preservatives or additives. Suitable for vegans. Non-GMO.

    The focus is on the long-term. Remember that the key benefits of achieving maximum lifespan potential may not be perceived on a daily basis, as it impacts biology over time with consistent daily use on your Longevity Journey.

    Many customers report seeing or feeling a noticeable benefit within 30 days. However, everyone’s body is different, and the benefits you may see or feel (skin health, energy, mood, etc.) are often just the most visceral ones.

    Some people feel results in as a little as 7 days due to specific benefits like skin health and cognitive support.

    Other longer term benefits like mitochondrial health and genomic stability may take longer, or you may not notice anything at all. That’s completely normal.

    As long as you continue your daily intake, those beneficial nutrients are doing their work inside to optimize your health.

    NOVOS Core is meant for early-adult, middle-aged and elderly people. It is developed to slow down aging, a process that already starts from a young age. The most pronounced short-term effects will be noticed by older people, while the greatest long-term longevity benefits will come from starting at a younger age.

    NOVOS Core is safe to take with other supplements.

    There are no known contraindications with NOVOS Core and any over-the-counter or prescription medications, though we encourage you to double check with your physician before adding our product to your regimen.

    If you are already taking any ingredients found in the NOVOS Core formulation, such as magnesium or Vitamin C, you can consider discontinuing those supplements and simplifying your routine with NOVOS Core.

    A small percentage of users (less than 3%) report that they feel stomach discomfort when they first start taking NOVOS. This is normal: when a new food is introduced into your routine, it can take time for your microbiome and digestive tract to adapt.

    If this is the case for you, we recommend the following:

    1. Make sure you only take NOVOS Core on a full stomach.
    2. Split up your NOVOS Core into 2 to 3 servings. Pour 1/3 to 1/2 of the powder into your drink with each meal.
    3. Dilute NOVOS Core in a larger serving of water (16-24 ounces, rather than 8 ounces).

    Try steps 1-3 for a few weeks. In 90% of cases, the issue resolves itself. If it does not for you, feel free to contact our customer care team.

    To our knowledge, we don’t see a problem with taking NOVOS during pregnancy. However, given that this is a very critical period in the development of your child, and given that there could be unknown unknowns, we recommend that you err on the side of caution. That is, we advise against taking NOVOS while pregnant (and while breastfeeding).

    Short answer: no. No refrigeration needed. Storing at room temperature in a cool, dry environment is perfect for NOVOS Core.

    For monthly subscriptions, your order will contain 1 box of NOVOS Core. For prepaid options (6 or 12 months), you will receive all 6 or 12 boxes upfront.

    If you have active subscriptions to any NOVOS products, you can change the renewal date, cancel or renew your subscriptions at any time, as often as you would like. If you wish to choose a different renewal date or cancel a subscription, it must be done at least 2 business days prior to the renewal date, otherwise the transaction will be considered complete.

    Keep in mind that every person’s body is different, and the short-term benefits you see or feel (skin health, energy, sleep, mood, etc.) should be considered as added benefits. As long as you continue your daily intake, the beneficial nutrients are doing their work inside to optimize your health. Consistent use is the key to slowing down your aging to be YoungerForLonger™.

    Yes. While you can’t change the number of birthdays that have passed (chronological age), it is possible to slow down or accelerate your biological age based upon lifestyle changes.

    Two general categories of biological age tests exist: 

    – Tests that measure your rate of aging

    – Tests that measure your biological age

    Tests that measure your rate of aging determine how fast you are aging. 

    Tests that measure your biological age determine how old you are biologically. 

    You can compare the rate of aging to how fast a clock is ticking (how fast you are aging), and you can compare biological age to the time a clock displays (how old you really are).  

    Changing the speed that the clock is ticking can be noticed in significantly less time than seeing change in a clock that has been ticking for decades. This is one of the multiple reasons we emphasize the Rate of Aging clock as the primary focus of Age (80% of the emphasis should be on this clock).

    Biological age tests can be based off of the epigenome, proteome, microbiome, and more. Certain epigenetic tests are among the most accurate of all biological age tests, which is why NOVOS decided to offer these tests over alternatives.

    To that point, there are already many epigenetic clocks in existence, and some  are better than others. 

    Most epigenetic clocks measure biological age, to varying degrees of accuracy; very few of them measure the rate of aging. 

    The DunedinPACE rate of aging clock is currently considered by many in the field to be the most relevant and accurate test available with regards to mortality and disease risk. 

    It’s also the most actionable, since its outputs are based on your current lifestyle.

    These are some of the reasons that we chose to offer the DunedinPACE clock to our customers. 

    Your rate of aging is a measurement of how fast you age. It calculates how much you age biologically for each chronological year. 

    The lower the value, the better. 

    An average rate of aging would be a rate of one biological year for every chronological year you aged. If your rate of aging is lower than 1, you age slower than average.

    For example, if your rate of aging is 0.9, you only aged 0.9 years biologically for each chronological year that passed, or 10% slower than average.

    If your rate of aging is higher than 1, you age faster than an average person would be expected to age. 

    For example, if your rate of aging is 1.2, you age biologically 1.2 years for each chronological year that passes, which is 20% faster than normal.

    You want your rate of aging to be below 1; this means you’re aging more slowly than normal. 

    The epigenetic rate of aging clock NOVOS uses has been developed by scientists from Duke University and Columbia University. The clock is called DunedinPACE. Multiple studies have been published about the DunedinPACE clock, including comparisons against other well-regarded epigenetic tests, in which DunedinPACE proved to be even more accurate.

    Many experts in the field believe that DunedinPACE is currently the best clock available to measure your rate of aging. 

    Besides the Rate of Aging clock, NOVOS Age also includes a biological age clock. 

    The biological age clock determines how old you are biologically. 

    If you are biologically older than your chronological age, this implies you have aged faster over the course of your lifetime. 

    As a result, you could be at a higher risk of dying compared to someone with a lower biological age, or you could be at a higher risk of getting aging-related diseases and symptoms.

    We emphasize risk, because we’re dealing with statistical probabilities. This risk can also be offset by making improvements to your lifestyle, via diet, activity, supplementation, sleep, stress management, etc., which we cover in our blog.

    If your biological age is lower than your chronological age, this implies you have aged more slowly over the years. 

    You could therefore have a lower risk of dying than someone with a higher biological age, or have a lower risk of aging-related diseases and symptoms.

    It’s important to note that changes to your biological age will be more gradual than changes to your pace of aging, because the pace of aging measures your current speed, whereas your biological age measures a historical lifetime of aging.

    Some may see changes in their biological age – either positive or negative – in very short timeframes (i.e., if they test every few weeks or months). These changes are most likely predominantly based on the error margins of the test and should not be interpreted literally.

    Biological age tests are best looked at over the course of a year or more. You should accumulate a few results to see the overall trend relative to your chronological age.

    In the meantime, focusing on your pace of aging will give you the appropriate guidance to know that what you’re doing is working.

    The DunedinPACE clock is one of the most accurate epigenetic clocks. Nonetheless, it can be difficult to measure the impact of any single intervention, given the innumerable lifestyle factors that may counteract the positive effects on the clock.

    For example, taking a supplement or exercising may have a positive impact on the clock that may be counteracted by other lifestyle variables (e.g., stress, sleep, diet, overindulging as a reward for exercising, other supplements, your microbiome, infections or activation of the immune system). In such a case, the net result is neutral or negative, meanwhile the wrong conclusion may be drawn – that the supplement or exercise did not confer any benefits.

    This is even more the case for the biological age clock, which measures many forms of accumulated damage and lifestyle interventions you underwent throughout your life (including factors you were exposed to decades ago). 

    Using this clock to measure whether one intervention (e.g., exercising more) changes the clock will be difficult in the short-term, given the clock is, in most cases, currently not accurate enough on an individual level (some studies, using dozens or hundreds of participants, can find effects of one or multiple interventions).  

    Therefore, use the biological age clock to get an overview of all lifestyle interventions and habits accumulated over a lifetime. 

    Use the rate of aging clock to get a general overview of your health and how fast you are aging right now, being mindful of the innumerable lifestyle and (epi)genetic factors that are playing a role.

    We help you keep track of confounding factors by providing you with a short survey for you to complete with each NOVOS Age test. This will enable you to compare your lifestyle changes between tests in a more precise way than relying on your memory, and may help you make sense of your results.
