Internal Age Monitor
Internal Age is calculated by comparing your Aortic Pulse Wave Velocity result to a graph of average healthy readings per age. Aortic Pulse Wave Velocity is a measure of aortic stiffness, a proven risk assessor for death from all causes and an indicator of overall organ health.
iHeart tests will vary from minute-to-minute due to common fluctuations in blood pressure, so taking a daily baseline reading under the same conditions (i.e. after waking up and before having anything to eat/drink) is recommended to achieve consistent recordings.
Internal Age is affected by exercise, stress, diet, etc., and over time this baseline reading will change in response to your lifestyle. By observing trends in your iHeart results you’ll develop a responsive understanding of your health.
