Hormones play a key role in aging. However, hormone production begins to decline with age, leading older people to begin to feel and look ‘older’.

This can be countered with Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Earlier, HRT involved injecting the body with synthetic hormones to compensate for the low production. However, Bio-identical HRT uses only hormones that are biologically identical to those produced by the body. These hormones are made from sweet potato and soya bean plants. They are not as intrusive as synthetic hormones and the body accepts them easily.

BHRT is especially beneficial for women who suffer from menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, depression, etc. BHRT aids in brain function and can help to reduce the risk of diabetes in both men and women.

BHRT also helps people to retain muscle and bone mass. It enables them to look young and have great sex even in their 50s and 60s. BHRT can do wonders to a person’s confidence. Celebs regularly use BHRT to enhance their appearance and physical capabilities. Women over 35 and men over 40 should consider BHRT for a better life.

Certain supplements like curcumin (found in turmeric) are super-effective in slowing down aging. Turmeric, a yellow coloured spice, is an integral part of Indian cuisine. It prevents inflammation and prevents oxidative damage to cells by neutralizing free radicals. Curcumin boosts production of a particular growth hormone that is instrumental in keeping the brain in prime condition. Low levels of this hormone are linked with Alzheimer’s and depression. Curcumin can also reduce risk of a heart attack by as much as 65%. Turmeric can not only prevent cancer, but it is also being studied as a potential cure for cancer!

OK, what does living longer really mean?
