What is Bone mass?

What is basal metabolic rate (BMR)? (Applicable age 18 - 99)

What is metabolic age? (Applicable age 18 - 99)

This is calculated by comparing your basal metabolic rate (BMR) to the BMR average of your chronological age group. If your metabolic age is higher than your actual age, it’s an indication that you need to improve your metabolic rate. Increased exercise will build healthy muscle tissue, which in turn will improve your metabolic age. Stay on track by monitoring regularly.
