Do you often find yourself with less energy than you had when you were younger? Anti-aging medicine is devoted to helping people like you halt the ever-advancing deterioration caused by age.

One aspect of anti-aging medicine is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (or BHRT), which restores integral hormones like testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone to their proper levels. After a BHRT treatment, patients report feeling younger, having more energy, and decreased severity of menopausal and andropausal symptoms.

DHEA is a major player in anti-aging medicine. DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a steroid hormone released by the human body's adrenal glands. Because DHEA levels decline as we age, scientists have discovered that supplementing our bodies' declining levels of this particular hormone might help turn back the hands of time. After just six months of taking the supplement, older adults reported considerable reductions in abdominal fat as well as a decrease in insulin resistance.
