Synopsis: Real age calculator provides longevity information and calculates your approximate health age or biological age as well as your estimated life expectancy.
Definition: Biological Age
Biological Age is a concept used loosely, and with little objectivity, to describe a shortfall between a population cohort 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.
"Use the interactive biological age calculator below to estimate your health age and life expectancy based on your lifestyle factors."
Our calendar age is determined by the date we were born. Although we consider this chronological age to be our real age, we often overlook the fact that some people with a chronological age of 50 may be as fit as 30 year old's, yet others have a chronological age of 35, but in terms of their physical condition are 60 yrs old. To determine a person's true state of health, we must examine their biological age. Biological age is calculated on the basis of a person's physical and mental condition - and therefore expresses their true age.
Life Style Habits - The Key to Longevity
"We are what we repeatedly do." - Aristotle. Establish good healthy behaviors and stick to them in order to make your biological age the same or younger than your actual calendar age.
Avoid excessive alcohol, sugar, salt, saturated fat and processed carbs
Reduce environmental poisons such as second-hand smoke and pollution
Exercise regularly, including strength training and cardio for heart and lungs
Our real age calculator below calculates your approximate health age (biological age) and life expectancy. The lower your age results are then the better your health and lifestyle habits. You may also be interested in our Average Life Span Expectancy Chart by Country.
