If one wants to live forever, one of the major impediments we must tackle is cancer, and Metformin may be able to offer protection against what has come to be known as the “Emperor of All Maladies.” Twenty-seven clinical trials, involving 24,000, patients proved the efficacy of Metformin in the fight against cancers of the colon and rectum. Cancer patients using the drug experienced a 42% higher survival rate than those patients not using Metformin. Similar results were observed in patients involved in prostate cancer studies. In recent years, these studies have increased to include cancers of seventeen different body organs, using 21 different species of mice and 4 species of rats.
Seve from the gym can choke back a loaf of bread a day and still sport an amazing six-pack, while if you so much as look at a blueberry muffin your little pot belly expands to the size of a cauldron. Maybe you can blame it on your DNA, and now is the time to educate yourself about how you can adjust your diet by adding Superfoods that will better meet your fitness and nutrition goals. Let me give you an example. We all know that protein and nuts are keywords, and that nuts are an amazing Superfood, but, what some may not know is that nuts are also high in protein and fat content. This makes nuts difficult for your body to fully digest and if the fats and protein do not break down in the correct way, your immune system can be triggered to create antibodies that work to inflame the body’s sebaceous glands and cause pimples!
As this is the first discussion post I want to tell you a bit about how and why I started this website. In 2010 I had the last of 6 surgeries to my lower back. That sixth being a complete lumbar fusion (L2-S1). My first two surgeries began in 1994 while I was still on active duty with the Navy. There were 3 others sprinkled during 1991 to 2010.
Once you have been diagnosed with a low testosterone condition, what can you do about it? To many, the obvious choice would seem to be testosterone replacement therapy, or TRT. This type of treatment is administered by a physician, and may take many forms. You could use patches, which can irritate the skin, or creams, which must be carefully protected from touch by others. It could also entail a patch on your gum, which could be irritating, implants under the skin of your buttocks, or periodic injections.
Sex and aging and the effects it has on the body go both ways for men. A man can develop prostate problems as he ages, this can be caused by the decrease of natural testosterone levels, which helps control the growth of prostate cells, which then creates the signs of prostate cancer. As women age, their hormones do decrease to a certain extent, they become more prone to osteoporosis and they are also at increased risk of suffering from depression. Overall, aging is the main cause of sexual dysfunction in women and is a major cause of sexual dysfunction in men.
One benefit of ZMA is that it can provide deeper levels of REM sleep, and deeper sleep provides for enhanced muscle repair and growth. Not to mention the rest and relaxation needed to provide a fresh start for the next day’s workout.
