WELLNESS WITH ARINOLA: BYIOLOGICAL AGE VS CHRONOLOGICAL AGE
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?

The decisions and choices about staying healthy we make are quite crucial.

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.
