What is BioAge?

Home / Blog / Medicine / What is BioAge?

Chronological age and biological age are two distinct concepts. Whereas chronological age is based on how long a person has been alive, biological age is much more complex. Everyone ages at a different rate. Our cells and tissues gradually accumulate damage causing various medical conditions, diseases, and overall aging. The manner and the pace of our aging is intricately connected to our personal aging signature. This unique, personal aging blueprint is comprised of genetic, physiological, environmental, and socio-economic factors that, once combined, can be highly predictive. Using key blood-borne aging biomarkers, our AGEileTM Platform derives your biological age (BioAge). Your biological age essentially tells us what age your body “acts” like it is based on how well its cells and tissues are functioning. For example, if you’re a 35-year old male that exercises regularly, avoids eating unhealthy foods, and has never smoked cigarettes, it’s possible you’ll have a biological age of less than 35 years. On the other hand, if you’re a 35-year old male that doesn’t exercise, eats a lot of high-fat and high-sugar foods, and has been smoking cigarettes daily for 15 years, it’s possible you’ll have a biological age that’s higher than 35 years. Determining your current BioAge aides in assessing current health status and serves as a baseline to provide comparative data when assessing health after lifestyle intervention methods. What do you think is your BioAge?
