The RealAge test, at www.RealAge.com, is a calculation of your body’s health age created by well known doctors like Dr. Mike Roizen and Dr. Mehmet Oz.
Dr. Roizen is the chief wellness officer at the Cleveland Clinic, as well as being a well known author and radio show host, helping people with issues in health and wellness. Dr. Oz is a cardiothoracic surgeon who currently hosts a daily television show dedicated to issues of health and wellness.
Along with a group of other doctors, Dr. Roizen and Dr. Oz created the RealAge test to show people the specific consequences of the lifestyle choices they make every day.
The test first debuted online in 1998 and is a variety of questions ranging from things as basic as your height, age, weight, activity level and dietary habits to more non-traditional questions regarding your personal relationships and stress levels.
After you have taken the test, you will be given your “RealAge” as compared to your biological age, and the difference between the two. For example, if you are 29.5 years old in accordance with your birthday, but 27.2 years old according to your body’s health age, then you have made yourself 2.3 years younger through your lifestyle habits.
Of course, this could easily be reversed, where people may find that their RealAge is actually older than their biological age. Regardless of your results, RealAge.com will also provide you with personalized tips and action plans based on your test answers.
These personalized tips and plans are intended to make you healthier and to help you “grow younger” as you move forward. In addition, RealAge.com will send you generalized newsletters about health and wellness.
