Can You Reverse Aging with The Help of HGH Supplements?
Growth in the human body is controlled by the growth hormone produced by the pituitary gland which is located in the brain. It is believed that production of this growth hormone declines as an individual age by almost 20% every 10 years. Thus, a 20- year -old has 20% less growth hormone than a baby and the decline continues to old age. The growth hormone is responsible for various body functions like regulation of body metabolism particularly fat and sugar, regulation of body composition and body fluids, bone and muscle growth, and normal functioning of the heart all of which are required to remain young and youthful.
The slowdown in the production of growth hormone as one age has prompted the introduction of synthetic Human Growth Hormone (HGH) administered through an injection mainly to aging people. The production and sell of HGH pills, injections or drops is a billion dollar industry with the main manufacturers convincing the older generation that a daily dose can make one look and feel 10 years younger. Truth is, HGH functions in various ways believed to restore youthful look and feel including:
· Increased body mass and bone density
· Increased energy levels thus increasing the capacity to exercise
· Decrease in body fat and fat reserves
· Faster growth of both hair and nails
· Increased sex drive and libido
· Smoother baby –like skin
· Faster energy recovery particularly after intense physical activity
Thus to answer the question is HGH effective for anti-aging? The answer is yes. Although no study has been done to prove the correlation between the use of HGH and aging, the observable effects can help us lead to the conclusion that HGH is indeed effective as an anti-aging product. The ability of the body to restore its body mass, bones, energy levels and renew skin is what makes one feel younger. In one study conducted by a Californian University, indicated that men above 69 years old who used HGH over a 52 week period shed estimated 4.6 pounds and gained the same amount of body mass, showed decreased cholesterol levels and higher aerobic capacity. Although the research was limited to about 200 men and women, it provides a solid foundation to conclude that HGH is effective in fighting aging.
Like most prescription drugs, HGH is known to have negative consequences particularly for aging folks; it is no wonder is has been classified as a doping drug and banned in many sports. Some of the most noticeable side effects include:
· Increased risk for prostate cancer
· Increased risk for diabetes
· Increased swelling and joint pain
· Carpal tunnel syndrome
· Resistance to insulin
· Leads to acromegaly condition
Thus, while HGH may make you look and feel younger, the risks associated should make you have a second though before injecting it into your body. In any case, most of the positive effects of HGH can be achieved by eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly.The exposure to these conditions can reduce an individuals lifespan by up to 20 years considering that aging in itself is a risk factor. This does not imply that it is okay for younger generations to use HGH. Ultimately, the decision on whether or not to use HGH lies in the ability to weigh the benefits and consequences and make an informed choice.Posted on September 27, 2016 by Tessa Mercado
What You Should Know About Hair Loss
One In 10 Men Are Extremely Concerned About Losing Their Hair
Once a man begins to lose his hair, there is a chance that insanity of the temporary variety is not lagging that far behind it. This is a problem that many men are so focused on that it starts to skirt the line of becoming an obsession.
Balding can have an effect on many parts of a man’s life. Interpersonal relationships are usually affected negatively since the self-esteem has taken a blow and confidence is not as easy to come by. The rebuild hair program is a good way to restore hair growth.
Sometimes Male Pattern Baldness Occurs Before Reaching 21
Male pattern baldness (MPB) is one of the worst things that could happen to a man. The departure of their hair follicles is a direct blow to their self image. MPB is usually associated with being an older man that is possibly in the throes of a midlife crisis. There is nothing about it that has anything to do with being youthful.
Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Out of all of the men that have to worry about watching their hairlines wane, 25% of them will have to worry about this before they are even legally able to purchase alcohol.
More Than Half Of Men Cannot Spot A Hair Transplant
Hair transplants and other hair loss solutions are usually looked at negatively. In popular culture, they are often used to paint characters as arrogant, incompetent and absurd. Many of the plugs make the wearer look like a Chia pet.
The good thing is that the procedures that are used now are far more advanced than those that were used in the past. According to the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, there are men all over the place who have had transplants and they are not detectable. They published a Hair Loss Challenge survey in 2009. The data that was offered showed that three in every five men are not able to spot those who have implants from those that do not.Posted on June 7, 2015 by Tessa Mercado

You must have the right perspective in life and guess what? That is something you could learn when you are with friends and with people.
But on the other hand, you must be weary of the people you surround yourself with because not all of them will be good for you. Pick a group of friends who are genuine and real enough to care for your being.
Socializing is a skill that you must learn. Others are gifted with an innate talent that the minute they walk inside the door with people, their personality just lights up the whole place and everybody wants to start talking to them. Now you don’t have to be like that because everybody is different.
You must also learn how to celebrate individuality to be able to cope up in a social crowd. Don’t expect other people to be like you and even like you at once. It takes time to be friends with people so just let things be but still don’t forget to be yourself.
Mingling with friends is a healthy practice because not only will it protect you from going crazy in case you have some really big problems, at the end of the day, you will realize that it is fun.

Don’t be afraid to take a leap of faith today and go hang out with people. Especially if you are the shy type, go ahead and embrace your fears. Life is a lot less scary when you have friends and you will realize how awesome it is when you get to share it with them.
Join a healthy club or even check out your local community to see where you can hangout for a change instead of your usual nights of hanging out with your couch and television. Life is short; don’t make it shorter by being alone. Go out and have some fun tonight.Posted on February 17, 2015 by Tessa Mercado
