Balance your Hormones
Women who take natural bio-identical hormone replacement, given in tailor-made doses to match their individual needs, can have a biological age as much as 10 years younger than their chronological age.
As we get older various glands such as the pituitary, ovaries, testicles and adrenals slow down and do not produce the abundant hormone levels of youth. This can accelerate physical and mental ageing and cause us to slow down in many ways, including sexually.
Thankfully all the bodily hormones can now be replaced with natural replicas of themselves – these are known as “bio-identical hormones” and the body cannot tell the difference between them and its own natural hormones. Replacement with natural hormones can slow ageing of the skin, hair and sexual organs. It can also reduce the risk of osteoporosis. Natural hormone replacement can also improve the mental state and restore youthful libido and energy levels.
Vitamin D is really a hormone, as like all sex hormones and steroid hormones, vitamin D is made from cholesterol. Vitamin D maintains strong youthful bones, nails and connective tissues and prevents osteoporosis. The majority of Australians are deficient in this most anti-ageing hormone and studies put 70% of us at risk.
Do you know your blood vitamin D levels? They should be over 100 to prevent the ageing disease of osteoporosis, which will cause poor posture especially the ageing stooping thoracic hump and bone fractures.
You can take all the calcium in the world and it will be useless, perhaps even dangerous, if you are low in vitamin D as the calcium cannot get into your bones. Luckily supplements of vitamin D3 are most inexpensive and many people need to take 5000 iu daily during the winter months and/or if they avoid the sun.
