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.
