Defying Your Age
How Cenegenics Can Help Men & Women Defy Their Age
Hormonal Health – Facing The Facts
Hormonal health plays an integral part in determining overall well-being. The endocrine system – made up of hormone-secreting glands – is often overlooked in conventional healthcare. Since it regulates our internal environment and maintains system integration, the endocrine system demands attention.
Having diminished hormone levels contributes to a litany of symptoms and a slow, steady deterioration in our health. As years pass, these symptoms become even more noticeable as the relationship between them and hormone levels becomes undeniable: diminished libido, waning energy, decreased lean muscle and increased body fat, weakened bones and osteoporosis, reduction in skin tone and elasticity, memory lapses, cardiovascular concerns, sleeplessness, irritability and mood swings, among several others.
The Male-Female Connection
Throughout time, a line has been drawn dividing the sexes. Nevertheless, regarding the effects of aging, that line decidedly
Outwardly, a middle-aged man may have increased abdominal fat and reduced lean muscle mass – hallmarks of hormone imbalance. He no longer looks or feels virile, as his sexual function fades. As a result, self-esteem begins to suffer.
The story isn’t that different for women. In fact, both genders suffer when hormone imbalances develop, which results in physical and emotional stress.
For example, both genders experience menopause. Male menopause (called andropause) is more subtle than its female counterpart. Sparked by a decline in androgens (male sex hormones), male menopause typically begins in the 40s.
Female menopause (marked by the dynamic drop in estrogen and testosterone levels) occurs at a definitive point in time, while male menopause moves stealthily over a period of 20 years.
Nonetheless, both genders battle the same symptoms mentioned earlier. However, in the male aging process, there are compound challenges. Testosterone output decreases approximately 1%-3% per year, starting at age 30.
Men also begin to form more estrogen, which stores in fat. A typical 50-year-old male at normal weight has more estrogen than his female, postmenopausal counterpart. These higher estrogen levels ultimately compete with testosterone for the same receptors. This loss of testosterone contributes to a middle-aged man’s “pot belly” and reduced muscle tone.
The differences between the sexes are quantitative, not qualitative. Both genders may need additional hormones to get their bodies back in balance, if testing reveals diminished levels.
