WELL­NESS WITH ARINOLA: BYIOLOGICAL AGE VS CHRONO­LOG­I­CAL AGE

THISDAY Style - - CONTENT -

You most likely have met some peo­ple who look and prob­a­bly act younger than they re­ally are. Their skin looks very healthy, their en­ergy lev­els are high and their wits, just fan­tas­tic! You spec­u­late they are ten to fif­teen years younger than they re­ally are. You meet another per­son and you have curt­sied, pros­trated et al, de­duc­ing from the way they look, only to find out you are ten years older than them!

Bi­o­log­i­cal Age is the ac­tive rate at which your body is ag­ing. It is a true mea­sure­ment of your cur­rent health, life ex­pectancy, and fu­ture qual­ity of life. It is the age that most nor­mal peo­ple would be when they have a body and mind sim­i­lar to yours.

Chrono­log­i­cal Age is sim­ply your cur­rent age in years, cal­cu­lated from your birth date.

Your Bi­o­log­i­cal and Chrono­log­i­cal Age are not nec­es­sar­ily the same.

A Bi­o­log­i­cal Age Test will give you an ac­cu­rate mea­sure­ment of your Bi­o­log­i­cal Age. If you have been main­tain­ing a healthy life­style or tak­ing very good care of your­self, the test may show Bi­o­log­i­cal Age 5 to 10 years younger than your Chrono­log­i­cal Age. How­ever, 7 out of 10 test re­sults show oth­er­wise! i.e. 70% of test re­sults usu­ally show that the Bi­o­log­i­cal Age is higher than a per­son’s Chrono­log­i­cal Age. I un­der­stand per­fectly well the looks, dis­be­lief or shock on faces at this mo­ment! The ex­treme stresses, diet, tox­ins, lack of ad­e­quate sleep, lack of ex­er­cise con­trib­ute largely to this dis­mal re­port. It again lies at the‘doorsteps’of our Life­style. Some Symp­toms of get­ting older: • Poor Mem­ory • Wrin­kles & Loss of Skin Elas­tic­ity • Poor Car­dio­vas­cu­lar Per­for­mance • Weight Gain • High Blood Pres­sure • High Choles­terol • Lack of En­ergy • In­som­nia • Breath­ing Prob­lems • De­crease Li­bido & Sex­ual Per­for­mance • Ang­ina So, how do you Re­verse Ag­ing, Turn Back Time or Lower your Bi­o­log­i­cal Age? Truth is, we all want to look younger longer. We can in­flu­ence our ag­ing process be­cause Life­style fac­tors play an im­por­tant part. The de­ci­sions and choices about stay­ing healthy we make are quite cru­cial. Vol. 22, No. 8375 Sun­day, April 1, 2018 Your Bi­o­log­i­cal Age will plum­met if you: • Add more fruits and veg­eta­bles to your diet. • Avoid pro­cessed food • Drink 8-10 glasses of wa­ter daily • In­cor­po­rate phys­i­cal ex­er­cise rou­tine into your

life­style, walk­ing will do! • Detox­ify- re­duce the level of tox­ins in your body • Avoid fried and fatty foods • Cut out smok­ing • Re­duce al­co­hol in­take • Con­trol your stress lev­els • Mon­i­tor your Blood Pres­sure reg­u­larly; higher blood pres­sure can in­crease the risks of strokes and other heart con­di­tions. Get ad­e­quate sleep ev­ery­day- the body gets to re­pair and re­store it­self back to health whilst you sleep.

Bi­o­log­i­cal Age Test­ing, no doubt, is a great tool in pre­ven­ta­tive and anti-ag­ing pro­to­col. Armed with your test re­sult, you can eas­ily iden­tify spe­cific ar­eas to in­cor­po­rate pre­ven­ta­tive ac­tion into your life­style im­me­di­ately. By the time you take the test again, you should have seen sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ments.

You can al­ways feel your best and look younger longer!

I wish you Op­ti­mum Health and Well-Be­ing!!!
