Factors Influencing

Biological age is a way to measure how old your body is on a cellular level, rather than simply how many years you’ve been alive (chronological age).  This can be different from your chronological age because some people age faster or slower than others due to genetics and lifestyle choices.

Biological Age


Genetic Makeup


Inherited traits from parents and ancestors influence biological age, impacting susceptibility to diseases, metabolic rate, immune function, and longevity.

Lifestyle Choice


Diet, exercise, sleep patterns, stress management, and substance use significantly affect overall health and well-being, thereby influencing biological age.

Environmental Exposures


Exposure to toxins, pollutants, and harmful substances such as air pollution, pesticides, heavy metals, and industrial chemicals can accelerate biological aging and contribute to chronic diseases.

Psychological Factors


Stress, depression, social isolation, and other psychological factors can impact biological age by influencing hormone levels, immune function, and overall health.

Nutritional Status


A balanced diet rich in essential nutrients supports cellular function, repair, and regeneration, while poor dietary habits can accelerate aging processes.

Physical Activity


Regular exercise improves cardiovascular health, muscle strength, metabolic function, and cognitive health, thereby slowing down the rate of biological aging.

Sleep Quality


Adequate sleep is essential for cellular repair, cognitive function, and overall health, with insufficient sleep accelerating the aging process.

Toxin Exposures


Harmful substances such as tobacco, alcohol, and illicit drugs can damage cells, promote oxidative stress, and accelerate biological aging.

Social Connections


Maintaining social connections and engaging in supportive relationships can reduce stress levels, improve mental well-being, and slow down the aging process.

Chronic Diseases


Pre-existing medical conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and autoimmune disorders can accelerate biological aging and increase the risk of age-related diseases.
