What is your Biological Age?: The Best Tests and Strategies for Improving Your Health With Alex Leaf

Biological age is a critical indicator of our overall health and wellness. It’s a measure of how well our body functions compared to others of the same chronological age.

But are all biological age tests the same? Are some more accurate indicators than others?

In this episode, Alex Leaf and I discuss the lifestyle factors that contribute to biological aging, such as diet, exercise, and stress management, and how we can make changes to improve our health and well-being.

We also talk about body image and its connection to mental health, and Alex shares his thoughts on Agmatine as well as his top 10 supplements.

Alex Leaf, M.S., holds a master’s degree in nutrition from Bastyr University and has been writing about the science of nutrition, health, and fitness for over a decade. Currently, Alex is a content creator and research writer alongside Ari Whitten at The Energy Blueprint. Formerly, Alex was a senior researcher at Examine.com and teaching assistant for the University of Western States’ Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine masters program.

Maybe we are, but we’re also going to live the longest ( #longevity), so eventually us “crazy” biohackers will be the only ones left.
