WHY WE AGE?

 

Growing Old Is a Fact of Life and it's Inevitable

Our bones become brittle, skin starts to wrinkle, muscles get weaker and energy plummets. These are the typical signs of aging. But, why do we age? The average life expectancy in the US is only 77 years. Can we do better? If so, how much longer can we live?

 

Cell Division

Naturally, cells divide only a certain amount of times in the body. The cell division process begins at the time of conception and is necessary for the development and growth of a life. As we grow older, cells divide and multiply; however, as we continue to get older cell division slows down.

 

 

Epigenetic Factors

Many people have a common pre-conceived understanding that only genetics play a key role in how long we live (i.e. "My father died of a heart attack at the age of 50, and so will I"). While to some degree this is true, there are other positive epigenetic factors that play an even bigger role. Epigenetic factors are essentially the overall lifestyle changes made that can disrupt your own genetic make-up. Perhaps, this is how we can extend not just our lives, but the quality of life as well.

 

WHAT EXACTLY IS HGH?

Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is a single-chain peptide hormone produced from the pituitary gland, the master gland in the body. This is the hormone that helps you grow throughout childhood, hence the word "growth". Around the age of 20 HGH is at it's peak, and then plummets around the age of 25. This is when the dreadful aging process begins, as this hormone slowly declines for the rest of your life. But don't worry, growing itsn't the only thing HGH is good for. Many experts say that elevating your growth hormone when you are older can bring back your levels to when you were in your 20's. Most people start to experience these benefits in as little as two weeks.
