Bio Age - You are limitless Part 2
Your diet and lifestyle have a major impact on how you age internally and as a result, externally. Your biological age assesses how well you’re aging in comparison with your chronological age.
To better overcome the process of aging and create a precision nutrition platform that focuses on optimizing health down to the cellular level, we created the first comprehensive Health Intelligence Test.
It incorporates both the data and knowledge we glean from your gut microbiome, and combines it with a blood transcriptome test (human gene expression test) that allows us to decode how well your cells are functioning and provide insights as to what you can do about it. Our AI has now analyzed data from over 200,000 people!

How can my biological age be older than my chronological age?
Despite hitting all your ‘daily nutrition needs’ - it’s more than possible that your cells are underperforming. Why does this matter? Underperforming cells can also mean cells not healing and functioning as they should be, and you are aging faster than you should be. This can be tracked by various testable biomarkers that change based on your personal diet and lifestyle.
In some cases, your diet might not be helping you fight the aging process. And despite how ‘young’ (or old) your chronological age may be, your biological age may be a lot older. That can lead to a lot more physical signs of aging (like wrinkles) to internal signs of aging (like reduced organ function). There’s good evidence that aging is the number one risk factor for most chronic diseases. If we can see not only someone’s chronological age but also their biological age, we can gain more insight into an individual’s future risk of developing diseases overall or even organ-specific diseases.

What is aging?
To understand what aging is, we must first understand what it is to be at optimal health - for the process of aging is simply the decline of normal, healthy cell functioning. When cells function at optimal levels, their ability to mediate biological processes, metabolize nutrients, and regenerate or recycle exhausted organelles operates at peak performance.
The process of aging is essentially the gradual deterioration of these normal processes, resulting in the inability for a cell to appropriately follow-through on many functions. Scientists believe it’s most likely two main theories that assert either: 1.) a cell has a ‘set point’ biological timeline that allows for only ‘X’ amount of replication/renewal cycles or 2.) that specific genetic safeguards (like telomere length) have become compromised, resulting in DNA mutations or cellular decay.

Why do we age?
Although a lot of theories examine what ‘aging’ may be, many scientists are developing a dynamic understanding as to what may be causing aging. Cellular decay is most likely led by environmental stressors we encounter in our normal daily lives. Inadequate nutrition, exposure to chemicals in our environment, sedentary lifestyles, and more, scientists believe that we experience any number of factors almost every day.
Together, researchers have established that the accumulation of these assaults contribute to a few sources of cellular deterioration. Most likely a combination of all, this can be broken down into Damaged DNA, Dysfunctional Mitochondria, and Immune Stress.
Viome’s Health Intelligence Test helps you understand how well your cells are able to perform by looking at multiple factors:
Your genetic code - or DNA - is a blueprint to help your cells decode essential proteins used for normal cell function.
If damaged, or if mutations occur, your cell’s ability to repair or continue normal cell functions can be greatly affected. It can also halt its ability to replicate (or in some cases, call for excessive replication as in the case of cancer, a well known age-related disease). We examine how your cells perform and score your level of cellular stress to determine the health of your cells.
By assessing your mitochondrial stress and health, we can determine how well your cells are able to navigate and neutralize oxidative stress.
High levels of oxidative stress is one of the leading causes of aging by harming or degrading your DNA. Dysfunctional mitochondrial can lead to a number of age-related symptoms, such as fatigue, diminished recovery time, and brain fog.
Our immune system is integral to our ability to fight off infection and heal. Under normal conditions, our body frequently regenerates new, fresh immune cells.
However, when your body is experiencing prolonged levels of stress in your tissues (due to DNA Damage and Mitochondrial Dysfunction), your immune system can become exhausted and start experiencing issues within these cells as well. This is fairly common in aging adults who have difficulty overcoming illness due to a depleted immune response. We consider your level of Immune System Stress to see if your body is overly responsive, under responsive, or responding normally to foreign threats.

How old you think you are may be different from how old your body says you are. Our AI has analyzed data from over 200,000 people to be able to match the molecular patterns from your data to people of different ages and give you your Biological Age!
This score assesses the overall state and functional health of your human cells and indicates how well your body is able to generate energy to perform essential functions, manage stress, and to repair and care for itself. If this score isn’t optimal, you may have issues in cellular health that need improvement. Your individual recommendations help to promote a cellular “tune-up” of the pathway activities for immune and antioxidant support, energy production, anti-aging, and anti-inflammatory functions.
The mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell, supplying energy for basic cellular functions. The health of your mitochondria is also associated with aging, metabolism, cardiovascular, and brain health. To address issues in Mitochondrial Health, very specific supplements may be required to reduce oxidative stress or increase the supply of mitochondrial enzymes necessary for normal energy production.
Immune System Health
Your immune system is your body’s impressive defense response that fights against infection and promotes the natural healing properties of your body. Supporting a healthy immune system can include disrupting inflammatory cycles or relieving strain or stress on your immune cells. Immune system activity can look very different from one person to another. The close relationship between cellular stress, inflammation, the gut microbiome, and our blood can lead to very different recommendations for each individual.
Stress Response Health
This score combines insights from both your blood and your gut microbiome’s induced stress factors. These are chemical signals that are activated in response to various triggers of cellular stress. They may come from your lifestyle, environment, and physiological response to emotions. Additionally, some signals originate from inflammation or toxins produced by your gut microbiome. Changes in lifestyle, food, and supplement intake can address your unique patterns of stress and support the restoration of your cellular balance and resilience.
Gut Microbiome Health
Your gut microbiome is linked to your weight, energy, stress, sleep, and immunity among many health areas. This high level score combines more than 20 subscores and pathways that reveal insights related to inflammation, richness & diversity, gas production, digestive processes, and more. If your scores are not optimal, we'll recommend the nutrients you need to support your gut health including specific prebiotics, probiotics, supplements, and foods you need.

Bio Age - Frequently Asked Questions ~ List Module
What is biological age?
By assessing the efficiency of your cellular activities and your gut microbial activities it is possible to predict what is called your biological age. This helps determine how well your body is aging in comparison with your age according to the calendar.
Viome’s comprehensive AI has analyzed data from more than 200,000 people to be able to match the molecular patterns from your data to people of different ages, which we use to predict your approximate biological age. We offer our Biological Age score as one of 30 scores available with the Health Intelligence Test (this score is not available for minors).
What is biological age vs chronological age?
While your chronological age, of course, depends on how many years you have been alive, your biological age may be a little different. This depends on the condition of your body’s cells and how well they are able to perform their individual functions. It’s possible for your “biological age” to be higher, or lower than your actual age.
How do you test for biological age?
