Anti-Aging For Baby Boomers

In the 1940s through to the 60s we as a country experienced very high birth rates to what is now known as the “baby boom.” These people were called “Baby Boomers”. They were mod clothes, sampled hallucinogenic drugs and they rocked with the Beatles. These were great times. Not a care in the world. Some of these baby boomers are in their 40s and some are close to retirement now.

Times have definitely changed now as have the baby boomers. There not as young as they used to be and not so full of exuberance and virility. This is especially true for the men. Their hair lines are receding, memory is getting cob webs and sexual performance is declining. Others also experience insomnia, aches, sweating, increased fat, loss of strength. Irritability, crankiness or even depression can also settle in. Most men of this age will experience either one or all of these to some degree.

A mans testosterone level starts to decrease at around age 30. It usually does so at the rate of 10 percent per decade. Of course testosterone helps maintain sex drive, sperm production, pubic and body hair. The consequences of aging slowly emerge as a man ages.

There are ways to help these baby boomers. You have to create a plan for a healthy life style. This could include optimal diets, supplements, regular exercise, stress management and natural hormone enhancement.

Let’s get basic here. We are missing many things in today’s diet but we also have ingredients in our diet that we shouldn’t have. Mostly high in sugar, fat and salt. The idea compromise should be 25% protein, 25% fat, and 50 % carbohydrates. Your protein should come from mainly plants, beans and animal sources like meat. Nut and olive oil is preferred over animal fats. Fruits and vegetables are main sources of carbohydrates so plenty of them should be eaten. Cortisol is a major age inducing hormone and is widely induced by junk foods, soda pop or any thing refined with sugar.

It’s however going to take a lot more than just diet to meet necessary nutrients. So it is favorable to take supplements like vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other nutritional factors to be able to meet your daily requirements.

Physical activity is huge in helping to alleviate symptoms of aging. A good regular exercise program helps in the decreasing of bone and muscle mass. Regular exercise also helps to increase your metabolism. This allows you to burn more fat. Also exercise strengthens your heart and keeps your body flexible.

Stress can really accelerate the aging process. That alone is a great reason to practice stress management. Relaxation is so important. Try yoga, sports, meditation, reading, massages and so on. These activities will help you to focus and to loosen up.

Natural hormone enhancement is another way to put off some symptoms of aging. It’s ever so important to consult with your physician before using any supplemental HGHs such as injections, sprays, pills or tablets

Aging can be a huge factor on the quality of our lives. However with a healthy lifestyle which includes proper diet supplements, regular exercise, stress management and natural hormone enhancement. By doing all of this you can greatly reduce or eliminate some or all of symptoms associated with aging.
