The explorer Ponce De Leon was made famous by his continuous quest for the legendary Fountain of Youth. While the Fountain of Youth may be just a myth, that doesn’t stop people today from exploring various avenues to defy the ravages of time. We desire to keep our skin from wrinkling, fend off illness, and maintain the energy levels we had during the prime of our youth. Although the Fountain of Youth may not be real, there are many very real anti-aging nutritional supplements
that we can use to keep our youthful appearance and energy.
At about the age of 30, our natural hormone production begins to decline. Decreased levels of testosterone (the dominant male hormone), estrogen (the dominant female hormone), and Human Growth Hormone (more commonly referred to as HGH) can lead to:
· Slower metabolism
· Less energy throughout the day
· Body fat is gained more easily
· Loss of muscle mass
· Fluctuations of body temperature
· Cholesterol buildup in the arteries
· Weaker immune system
Human Growth Hormone replacement therapy is one of the most popular anti-aging nutritional supplements
used today to combat the effects of aging. On the down side, HGH replacement can be very expensive and time consuming. There are however, some very convenient, inexpensive and natural HGH supplements to keep you vibrant and youthful, such as Somatomax by Hi-Tech or Schwartz Laboratories Human Growth Hormone liquid homeopathic formula.
In addition to HGH therapy, skin care is essential to keeping our youthful appearance. One of the most common and visibly noticeable side effects of aging is the change in our skin health. Your face especially, will tell others an unspoken tale of how well you take care of your skin. Some of the more common symptoms are:
· Crow’s feet
· Loss of skin elasticity
· Dark circles under the eyes
· Frown lines
Sooner or later, we all will begin to notice some form of these unwanted symptoms of aging. Everyone from Hollywood’s A-list stars to the housewife next door is looking for a way to keep their youthful appearance. You could go through the expensive route of collagen injections, Botox or even a facelift, but those may leave you with unwanted side effects. For those of us who don’t want to go that route (or can’t afford it), skin care anti-aging nutritional supplements
have come a long way.
There are now many effective and inexpensive home treatments we can do ourselves in the convenience of our own home. To combat those unwanted lines and wrinkles, Anti-Aging 3 Collagen by Dr. Vanessa will help your body to stimulate its own production of natural collagen, keeping your skin firm and healthy. The skin around your eyes is delicate and needs to be treated with care. Revexin is formulated especially for these sensitive areas and will help to reduce lines and wrinkles for smoother, younger looking skin.
Another sign of aging is the ability to fight off illnesses. Keeping a healthy immune system will also help to fend off the effects of Father Time. This can be as easy as taking a simple antioxidant blend such as Optimum Nutrition’s Super Antioxidants. Antioxidants help to fight off germs from the common cold to the flu, as well as free radicals, which damage your body on a cellular level. The most common of the anti-aging nutritional supplements
are Vitamins C and E, each of which have a plethora of germ and illness-fighting capabilities. In addition to these staple antioxidants, CoQ10 and Alpha Lipoic Acid will keep your immune system functioning at its top level, especially when you will need it most.
It has never been easier to look younger and feel better than it is today. Although there is nothing we can do to completely stop the aging process, we can continue to take special care of ourselves so as to slow the process down. It’s time to stop getting older, and start getting better!Tim Mielke
