From the 1940s to the 1960s, as a country, we experienced very high birth rates until what is now known as the “baby boom.” These people were called “Baby Boomers”. They were modern clothes, they tried hallucinogenic drugs and they played with the Beatles. They were great times. It is not a concern in the world. Some of these baby boomers are in their 40s and some are close to retirement now.
Times have definitely changed now, as have baby boomers. They are not as young as they used to be or as full of exuberance and virility. This is especially true for men. His hair lines are receding, memory is webbing, and sexual performance is declining. Others also experience insomnia, pain, sweating, fat gain, loss of strength. Irritability, bad mood, or even depression can also set in. Most men this age will experience one or all of these to some degree.
A man’s testosterone level begins to decline around the age of 30. Usually it does so at a rate of 10 percent per decade. Of course, testosterone helps maintain sexual desire, sperm production, pubic and body hair. The consequences of aging emerge slowly as man ages.
There are ways to help these baby boomers. You have to create a plan for a healthy lifestyle. This could include optimal diets, supplements, regular exercise, stress management, and natural hormonal enhancement.
Let’s be basic here. We are missing many things in our current diet, but we also have ingredients in our diet that we should not have. Mainly high in sugar, fat and salt. The compromise of the idea should be 25% protein, 25% fat and 50% carbohydrates. Your protein should come primarily from plants, beans, and animal sources like meat. Nut and olive oil are preferred over animal fats. Fruits and vegetables are the main sources of carbohydrates, so they should be consumed in abundance. Cortisol is one of the main age-inducing hormones and is widely induced by junk food, soda, or anything refined with sugar.
However, it will take much more than diet to get the necessary nutrients. That is why it is favorable to take supplements such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other nutritional factors to be able to cover your daily requirements.
Physical activity is essential to help alleviate the symptoms of aging. A good regular exercise program helps decrease bone and muscle mass. Regular exercise also helps increase your metabolism. This allows you to burn more fat. Plus, exercise strengthens your heart and keeps your body flexible.
Stress can really speed up the aging process. That alone is a great reason to practice stress management. Relaxation is so important. Try yoga, sports, meditation, reading, massage, etc. These activities will help you focus and relax.
Natural hormonal enhancement is another way to postpone some symptoms of aging. It is very important to check with your doctor before using any supplemental HGH, such as injections, sprays, pills, or tablets.
Aging can be a huge factor in the quality of our lives. However, with a healthy lifestyle that includes proper dietary supplements, regular exercise, stress management, and natural hormonal enhancement. By doing all of this, you can greatly reduce or eliminate some or all of the symptoms associated with aging.
