It’s backed by rock solid medical research, not ridiculous hearsay, and certainly not from a bunch of quacks trying to sell snake oil concoctions that just drains your savings.
Taking the – RIGHT – doctor prescribed vitamin and mineral supplements, along with eating right, are key.
After all, how can you slow down how fast your body is aging if it isn’t getting enough of the stronger, high-quality vitamins and minerals for the body to even do its job?
Or, we can call them “hormone enhancers,” since there are ways to help keep the hormones flowing throughout your body like they did when you were younger.
Your hormones aren’t necessarily being replaced – they are being enhanced to do its job, which is to keep you looking and feeling younger longer.
Hormones are a liquid chemical released into your blood stream that helps keep your:
But, as you may already know, overtime the hormones’ flow begins to slow down.
A very unhappy domino effect!
Now, of course we can’t stop our aging, but we now have the research-backed knowledge to slow it down.
Standing with the Salerno Center and Dr. John Salerno, here are just some of the medical research universities and institutions that have shown some very wide-eyed promising ways to live longer:
When these health heavyweights speak, it’s time to sit up and take notice.
Let’s start here:
The – “God, I’m Getting Too Old Too Fast!” – Age And Hormones Connection
Your hormones help keep your organs healthy, like, your brain. So, when the flow of your hormones becomes slower and slower as you get older, what just might happen to the health of your brain? Dementia, maybe? Among so many other things that happen to the health of your brain.
This may or may not be a 100% medical fact, but since our hormones do indeed keep our brain, in addition to our bones, joints, organs (liver, kidney…) healthy, this connection between age and hormones is certainly worth considering!
In a 60-second read, here is what hormones are, and how they can be your friend or your worst nightmare:
Hormones are a liquid chemical that are produced by glands. Much like sweat secreting from our pores, the hormones secrete from these glands.
They drip, if you will, into the bloodstream where they travel to the distant tissues and organs, where they then bind to the tissues’ and organs’ specific cell sites called receptors.
By binding to receptors, hormones send messages (commands, if you will) to your body to do certain functions, to keep itself healthy:
Simply put, think of hormones as the “prime movers” of your physical and mental well-being.
Every time you:
your body is responding to hormones.
That’s because hormone levels can impact virtually every major system and organ in your body.
And as we get older, far lower amounts of hormones are released, and this, in turn, creates havoc in our body, along with aging our body even faster and faster.
Your hormones impact virtually every major system and organ in your body, and if that flow slows down to a trickle, well, you know the outcome.
You are seeing it now in the mirror. You are feeling it now throughout the day…
So, there is indeed a very real connection between aging and your hormones.
Studies from research universities have shown that, without a doubt,
is one of the greatest ways to turn back the clock.
And speaking of supplements…if you know anything about nutrition and health, you know that you have to eat a lot of food for its nutritional value to do what it is meant to do.
With that said, many of you just can’t eat that much, never mind having the money or the time to prepare such meals.
Taking a combination of a natural hormone replacement and the right kind of supplements is like a one-two punch right in the mouth of aging.
Start with these key nutrients, that IS part of the Fountain of Youth that many of you are looking for:
Health studies have shown that chromium can keep building muscle, decrease body fat and lower cholesterol levels even in our twilight years.
The stronger your muscles (that surround your organs, and being that your heart is a muscle), the lower your body fat, the lower your cholesterol level, the odds go up that you will live longer.
Pantethine (vitamin B5)
Now here is one is a remarkable nutrient that not only helps control cholesterol, like chromium does, it also supports the adrenals and produces “friendly” bacteria in the intestine, making it a valuable tool in preventing yeast overgrowth.
Selenium is a powerful antioxidant needed to curb your aging. Although it is essential to eat plenty of vegetables and fruits, in many parts of the world the soil is depleted of nutrients, including selenium, making supplementation of this nutrient essential.
Vanadium (vanadyl sulfate)
According to the American Diabetes Association, diabetes takes between 16,000 to 18,000 lives every year. Vanadium is a trace mineral that dramatically aids diabetics by, apparently, helping cells absorb blood sugar more effectively and thereby decreasing the need for insulin.
While vanadium does its part in the battle again diabetes, biotin joins in to help lower blood-sugar levels.
Green tea contains four polyphenols, including epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which are powerful antioxidants known collectively as catechins, which are vital in extending your lifespan.
Instead of purchasing expensive glutathione supplements to try and increase telemeres, add whey protein to your diet. Besides being a great superfood, whey is rich in sulfur amino acids. A convenient food for all cells, aminos help detox, build healthy tissue, and boost the immune system – but just make sure it is from a grass-fed cow source.
One of the biggest keys to slowing down our aging is this active form of resveratrol polyphenols found in the skins, seeds and stems of red wine grapes. The ultra beneficial form, trans-Resveratrol, has been proven in studies by research universities to activate the SIRT1 longevity gene and enhance cellular productivity. It has been shown that trans-Resveratrol significantly modulates biomarkers of bone metabolism, inhibits pro-inflammatory enzymes such as COX-1 and COX-2, and exhibits chemopreventive agents, anticarcinogenic properties, cardioprotective effects, neuroprotective properties, and caloric restrictive behavior.
This fat-soluble antioxidant is a compound found in the mitochondria, or energy center, of every cell of the body, with the greatest concentration in the heart, which, in part, helps it to pump forcefully. As an antioxidant, Co-Q-10 also scavenges free radicals, and inhibits the formation of clots. More than a third of people with hypertension are deficient in Co-Q-10. Conversely, the antioxidant lowers blood pressure in patients with hypertension.
Omega-3 EPA + DHA
These two are essential fatty acids that enhance the quality of life and lowers the risk of premature death. They are usually lacking in the typical Western diet. There is overwhelming evidence that omega-3 fatty acids, particularly fish oils, have been consistently shown to reduce the risk of strokes and fatal and non-fatal heart attacks in at a number of ways. Fish oils help artery walls flexible, reduce the process of plaque growth, reduce triglyceride levels, prevent blood clotting, reduce blood pressure and stabilize heart rhythm. Well known for their cardiovascular benefits, fish oils are also valuable for reducing the risk of cancer.
Dr. John Salerno’s more productive and gifted common sense methods for anti-aging and longevity has been so successful for his patients, that he has been enthusiastically recommended by Suzanne Somers, the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, Ageless, and in her 2009 follow-ups, Breakthrough and Knockout.
“I will personally send patients to Dr. Salerno!” exclaims Ms. Somers.
