It's often said, "You're only as old as you feel." But in truth it should be worded, "You're only as old as you look and feel!" Medical research demonstrates this as they continue to spend millions of dollars on life extension studies, not only on our inner health, but an overall balance as well.
If we're going to talk about life extension, we should discuss aging. So what makes us look and feel old? Is it only in our face, or the shape of our body? One main area of scientific study regarding aging is how to measure aging effectively. The current drawback to research on anti-aging and life extension is that it takes a lifetime to quantify in humans! Mice and other rodents are commonly used because of their short lifespan, but the research must then be documented on primates and humans. Once this can be measured more quickly (with things such a gene profiling), it will give scientists a more effective way to quantify and evaluate anti-aging treatments and medications.
Of the various solutions to slowing down the aging process, calorie restriction is considered the number one solution. Life Extension supplements are available and should be used.
Life Extension Supplements Include:
• Acetyl-L-Carnitine Arginate
• Coenzyme Q10
• Lipoic Acid
• Green Tea Extract
• Fish Oil
• Folic Acid, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B12
• Nexrutine and 5-Loxin
• L-Alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine (GPC)
• Estrogen and Progesterone
To increase our life extension we must take an active role in our lifestyle choices. Those choices can have a dramatic effect on our inner health as well as providing us with overall balance in our lives. Even if you are already late into life, it's not too late to make lifestyle changes that can improve the length and quality of your life.
