CardioSecur has developed a HeartAge Calculator. This calculates if your heart age is younger than, older than, or corresponds to your actual age.
How can it be, that your heart age doesn’t match your actual age?
Lifestyle plays a big role in our general state of health. This includes the heart, the body’s most important organ. More specifically, it is a muscle, which supplies the body with oxygen-rich blood and nutrients, and maintains circulation. Habits that have a negative impact on our heart age include:
A lifestyle filled with these bad habits can lead to negative side effects such as high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, high cholesterol and obesity. These diseases burden the heart, causing it to age more quickly.
Check your heart age with our Heart Age Calculator. The Framingham Cardiovascular Disease Risk Guidelines form its scientific basis.
