Biological age – a good predictor for a long life?

It’s not the calendar age but the biological age of your vessels that counts – these are the findings of a U.S. study that analyzed the health data of more than 126 people.000 patients studied. Have you already determined your biological age?

Biological age is not just a marketing ploy, but represents an important predictor of life expectancy. This is the result of a recent study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.

Those who grow older have higher risk of death – or do they??

To this end, American researchers, together with cardiologists from the Cleveland Clinic, analyzed health data from a total of 126.356 patients examined between 1991 and 2015 who had completed a specific treadmill exercise test as part of their initial examination. From the results, the researchers determined, taking into account gender, lifestyle, BMI, cardiovascular risk factors, etc., the age of the person. the so-called A-BEST score (Age Based on Exercise Stress Testing), which, in view of the study results, allows much more targeted conclusions to be drawn about life expectancy than the actual calendrical age of a person.

It’s not the calendar age that counts, but the biological age

The calendrical age says only conditionally something about the personal health, the fitness condition and the individual life expectancy. It is the condition of the blood vessels that is crucial for good health into old age. How it is about your biological age, you can determine at "The technician" in a few steps by digital analysis test quickly and easily yourself.

"You are as old as you feel": Those who actively do something for their own health can therefore easily remain physically fit and active into old age. Surely also a reason why more and more seniors appreciate German gyms and train there regularly. "He who dies early is dead longer" – that’s why it pays to do something for your health as early as possible, so that nothing stands in the way of the healthiest, longest life possible.

Motivational effect of such scores should not be underestimated

Regardless of how this and other scores for biological age are calculated in detail in practice, such characteristic values have one thing in common: they are based on probability calculations and thus serve only as rough guidelines. However, they can still be used as an "eye opener" and motivate more training.
