Synopsis: Real age calculator provides longevity information and calculates your approximate health age or biological age as well as your estimated life expectancy. Many aging-research scientists believe that knowing your biological age could help you postpone or avoid Alzheimer's, cancer, cardiovascular disease, or other age-related illnesses. Some also believe biological age can better predict an individual's lifespan. Establish good healthy behaviors and stick to them to make your biological age the same or younger than your actual calendar age. Biomarkers of aging are biomarkers that better predict functional capacity at a later age than chronological age.

Biological Age

Biological age is a measurement of your age based on various biomarkers - a number that can change due to lifestyle and other health factors. Biological age describes the age that your body behaves and feels. Unlike chronological age, biological age is malleable and varies from person to person, depending on their health. The most reliable way to measure biological age is through something called a "biomarker." A biomarker, short for "biological marker," is an objective measure that indicates the health of a cell or organism. Cholesterol levels, blood sugar levels, and heart rate are common biomarkers used to assess the healthiness of someone's body. As longevity and aging research advances, biological age has become the more critical age to pay attention to. Knowing your biological age is an effective way of determining your cumulative rate of aging.

Main Digest

Our calendar age is determined by the birth date. Although we consider this chronological age our actual age, we often overlook that some people with a recorded age of 50 may be as fit as 30-year-olds. Yet, others have a chronological age of 35, but in terms of their physical condition are 60 yrs old. To determine a person's actual state of health, we must examine their biological age.

What Does Biological Age Mean?

Biological Age is a concept used loosely and with little objectivity to describe a shortfall between a population cohort's average life expectancy and the perceived life expectancy of an individual of the same age. Biomarkers of aging are biomarkers that better predict functional capacity at a later age than chronological age. Stated another way, biomarkers of aging would give the true "biological age", which may be different from the chronological age.

Life Style Habits Are Key to Longevity

"We are what we repeatedly do." - Aristotle. Establish good healthy behaviors and stick to them to make your biological age the same or younger than your actual calendar age.
