    Higher IGF-1 and DHEA levels, longer telomere lengths

    Your life expectancy grows, the more anabolic – and fewer catabolic – hormones your body produces. Researchers at Harvard Medical School reached this conclusion after performing a molecular-epidemiological study on 925 men and women over the age of 54. The more anabolic hormones your body...

    Men with high levels of anabolic hormones less likely to develop worsening frailty

    The researchers found that having higher baseline levels of vitamin D, insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and its binding protein 3 (IGFBP3) was associated with a lower risk of worse frailty status four years later. "Vitamin D, besides maintaining bone health, regulates muscle function, and...

    Male hormone reverses cell aging in clinical trial

    “One of the processes associated with aging is progressive shortening of telomeres, DNA-protecting structures at the ends of chromosomes, like the plastic tips on shoelaces,” Calado said. “Each time a cell divides, its telomeres get shorter. Eventually, the cell can’t replicate anymore and dies...

    Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone and Aging

    GHRH: There are two published trials of GHRH treatment in normal aging (34, 35). Once daily GHRH injections can stimulate increases in GH and IGF-I at least to the lower part of the young adult normal range (36). In a study of 6 months treatment with daily bedtime subcutaneous injections of...

    Low morning, high evening cortisol levels tied to frailty in elderly

    “Our results suggest a link between disrupted cortisol regulation and loss of muscle mass and strength, as the underlying pathophysiology of frailty,”Hamimatunnisa Johar, a PhD student at Helmholtz Zentrum München, said in a press release. “In a clinical setting assessment of frailty can be...

    Maintaining Muscle Mass and Aging

    Aging is inevitable. No one truly wants to accept their own mortality or the loss of their vigor and vitality. Our skin begins to lull, our hair grey's, our motor skills begin to dissipate and the battle to maintain our hormone levels becomes ever so frustrating. For men, the fact that we both...
