Ways that Exercise Slows Down Aging
we all know that Exercise is an effective way to keep the body
healthy and in peak condition, but did you know that exercise can
also slow down the aging process as well?
this article we will discuss five ways that engaging in routine
physical exercise can rejuvenate your body and slow down the decline
associated with growing old.
Stimulates the Production of Human Growth Hormone
Growth Hormone is one of the most important biological molecules that
the human body produces. Human Growth Hormone has the capability to
now only prevent you from looking older than your age, but it
improves the way that your body feels as well. Human Growth Hormone
Deficiency is correlated with a number of different problems related
to growing old.
does exercise raise Human Growth Hormone Levels?
levels are sustained through two distinct periods of the human daily
cycle. The first period that Human Growth Hormone production occurs
is during sleep. HGH plays a vital role in restoring the body after a
long day, and while we are in the deepest phase of sleep, the body
releases Human Growth Hormone from the pituitary in order to mend the
minor breakdowns caused by general wear and tear that accumulates
because of the wages of the day.
Levels Boost after Exercise
second period of time where HGH production occurs at a high rate is
during and after exercise. Human Growth Hormone is one of the key
factors which help sustain us during exercise and help our bodies
recover and enhance as a result of physical activity. Human Growth
Hormone breaks down unhealthy fat deposits across the body. It
displaces that fat and converts it into energy that the body can use
during exercise to enhance endurance and allow us to run, fight, and
does HGH Increase Muscle Mass?
Human Growth Hormone is stimulated by engaging in exercise, it also
plays a major role in making exercise more fruitful. After physical
activity is completed, Human Growth Hormone is an important factor in
muscle growth as well. HGH sends energy and nutrition directly to the
muscle cells which use the tools provided to them by the molecule in
order to make the muscles bigger and stronger as a result.
you dont engage in sufficient exercise in your weekly routine,
then your body will not receive the amount of Human Growth Hormone
that you need to maintain your health, causing you to age more
quickly. A sedentary lifestyle is highly correlated with
cardiovascular conditions such as heart disease, and a lack of
exercise leads to further buildup of fat which contributes to
Tones the Body and Helps you Remain Youthful
in vigorous and regular exercise does wonders for the body. The ideal
aesthetic figure is dependent upon regular maintenance through proper
diet and exercise. Stronger muscles prevent you from becoming overly
flabby. The place where this is the most obvious is in flabby arms.
Flabby arms are the direct result of a combination of unwanted fat
and weak muscles in the bicep and triceps which cause skin and tissue
to just kind of hang from the arm.
addition to this, regular exercise is incredibly important for joint
health as well. Engaging in routine exercise can help slow down or
prevent arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome. Be careful not to
overwork the joints with excess weight, however, because prolonged
and repeated exposure to intense pressure can also lead to joint
issues. The ideal is to find a point at which you are putting a
significant amount of stress on your muscles and joints without
overworking your body.
your Dietary Habits.
your body will look more toned if you combine proper nutrition with
exercise, and you will shed pounds as a result. The problem that some
people have is that they work out, but they still overeat and consume
too many fatty foods. Although their muscles are getting stronger,
the results are significantly less defined because their tone is
covered up by gobs of fat. It is possible to even hide a nice six
pack or nicely toned stomach under all of that fat. Losing body fat
and increasing muscle tone helps eliminate sagging skin on the face
and neck as well, giving your profile a much younger look. Lack of
exercise can wreak havoc on overall physical appearance.
is pivotal in maintaining a healthy metabolism. Physical activity
kick-starts your body, and your brain sends signals throughout the
body to release energy stores from fat as well as food that you
consume throughout the day. This energy travels straight to your
muscles where it is converted from calories to healthy muscle. In
addition to this, your body gives off heat energy and your heart
beats more rapidly. Your body consumes more calories, and as a result
you lose weight. This increased metabolism occurs even when you are
no longer exercising. With enough regular activity, the body begins
to burn more baseline calories throughout the day, meaning that daily
exercise contributes to weight loss 24 hours a day.
metabolism is associated with a number of different physiological
problems. Slower metabolism means more fat. If you arent
exercising, your body is converting most of the calories that you
consume directly into the body in the form of adipose fat. Also,
reduced metabolism leads to feelings of fatigue and exhaustion,
because if you dont maintain a strong metabolism, your body wont
have the energy that it needs in order to even go through the motions
of the most sedentary of days. The workday will seem longer and
longer, and focus and attention will break down as a result,
preventing you from performing at your best on the job.
Prevents Numerous Diseases
never too late to begin a more active lifestyle, but perpetual abuse
of your own body can result in irreversible damage. Long term
sedentary lifestyle and obesity directly lead to stage-two adult
diabetes, which is one of the most dangerous chronic illnesses that
afflict men and women in America today. All that it takes to prevent
this devastating illness is a bit of exercise and dietary restraint.
benefits provided by the preventative medicine known as exercise are
tangible in the form of scientific study as well. In a recent study,
researchers took blood samples from individuals who came from two
groups. All factors otherwise remaining equal, men and women who
exercise regularly have DNA which appears an average of nine years
younger than their counterparts who engaged in a sedentary lifestyle.
Exercise truly is a hallmark of longevity medicine.
Improves Overall Health
in exercise improves health in nearly every possible way. Study after
study has shown that those who engage in regular exercise are
healthier than those who do not. Exercise strengthens the immune
system, helping you fight off illness and maintain your overall
health. The feelings of exhaustion and tiredness do not merely affect
your endurance but the effectiveness of your other organ systems as
well. If your body is not physically prepared for day to day wear and
tear, your immune system suffers as a result. If you are routinely
exhausted even with little to no physical activity, then your immune
system will be less capable to ward off disease.
as was mentioned before, decreased metabolism means that your
circulatory system will have more problems as well. When you dont
exercise regularly, your baseline heart rate starts to increase as a
result. Regular cardiovascular exercise makes your heart do more with
less work. The heart is a muscle just like any other in the body, and
if you dont give it the proper attention, then it wont be able
to serve you. This fact becomes more and more true with age.
are numerous studies that show that in addition to helping you feel
younger, exercise literally adds years to your life, even if you
decide to change your lifestyle later in adulthood. Recent
longitudinal research has shown that men and women over the age of
fifty who engage in light physical activity live an average of 1.1
years longer than their sedentary counterparts. If you exercise more
regularly, the results will be even more astounding. If you remain
very active after the age of fifty studies have shown that you will
live an average of 3.2 more years than a sedentary man or woman.
Boosts Energy Levels
all know that initiating a workout regimen can be hard. The initial
couple of weeks can be very strenuous and make you feel weak and
exhausted. These feelings are only temporary, but they are one of the
biggest roadblocks to maintaining a healthy and active workout
regimen. It helps to start relatively slow, working your body to a
point of strain, but not to overwhelming exhaustion. Over time, your
muscles and your cardiovascular system will acclimate to the change
in your activity level and you will experience intensely increased
levels of energy and endurance as a result. At first, you may only
jog a quarter mile before having to slow down and catch your breath,
but eventually and with enough effort, you will be able to run for
miles. Its all about sticking to the program and working toward
slowly but ever-increasing goals. You will notice that as your
ability to endure strenuous physical activity increases, so will your
ability to make it through the day without faltering. Exercise is all
about priming your body for everything the day has to throw at you
without going through a draught of energy because of your lack of
training. There are dozens of studies which directly link increased
exercise and physical exertion with overall increased endurance when
it comes to everyday life.
for Energy, Sleep, and Memory
who exercise regularly also sleep better, and this is the result of
both increased metabolism and normalized hormone production. Engaging
in an active lifestyle helps people maintain a good routine for their
daily life. Waking up every morning to engage in healthy exercise
primes you for waking up early and then boosts your metabolism
throughout the day. Even when you engage in exercise later in the
day, it helps spur proper hormone production which helps you sleep
more soundly as a result. Good sleep enhances exercise as well in a
positive feedback loop. Your body repairs and rebuilds itself during
sleep, and when you sleep properly, you build muscle more
improves all aspects of cognitive ability as well. The combination of
increased endurance and increased blood flow increases ones
ability to think clearly and make good decisions. Also, you will be
able to retain and recover memories more fully. Having the energy to
pay attention helps you retain information that you gather during the
day. In addition to the boon provided by exercise in regard to
memory, your better sleeping habits will help your memory become
stronger as well, because it is during the night that the information
you learn through the day gets converted into permanent knowledge.
cognitive benefits of healthy exercise habits outweigh even those
provided by stimulants such as caffeine and sugar. If you need to
study for an exam or maintain sharp focus at work every day, you will
benefit greatly from a regular exercise routine. With enough
dedication it may even help you kick the habit of caffeine altogether
as your exercise assumes the role that stimulants once played in your
a person lives by a sedentary lifestyle, stress begins to pile up
inside them and can make life less enjoyable as a result. Everyone
has heard the term blowing off steam related with exercise, and
it is completely true. Burning calories with exercise helps people
take their minds off difficult things in their lives and is an
incredible and safe form of escape. In addition to this, the physical
and mental systems of the body are intricately connected, so
releasing pent up physical energy relieves stored mental energy as
well, helping a person maintain a clear mind which is not plagued
your Own Exercise Routine
of the keys to reducing stress by means of exercise is to decide
which forms of exercise appeal to you. Although working out is
supposed to be hard, theres no reason it cant be fun. Bring an
IPod with you to the gym so you can zone out to your favorite music.
Get engaged with your competitive nature by playing basketball or
soccer instead of just running alone. Bring a close friend to
motivate you and help the time pass more quickly. Catering exercise
to your own interests will help you live a stress-free life in which
it is easier to enjoy your newfound physical appearance and mental
Releases Dopamine and Endorphins
act of exercise also leads directly to the release of both dopamine
and endorphins. Endorphins account for the rush that you feel when
you engage in exercise or achieve success. Endorphins act as natural
physiological relaxers which help you feel energized.
can be best described as the body's pleasure chemical. Engaging in
strenuous physical exercise or exertion leads to the release of
dopamine. This is your brain literally rewarding you for all the hard
work that you are doing for its benefit. Also, if you exercise
regularly, you will actually feel compelled to exercise in order to
achieve the rush of dopamine that exercise provides. Your brain knows
that exercise is good for you in spite of the temporary pains that
can result from exertion, so it produces positive signals to
encourage you to continue the habit. The problem is, if you become
too out of practice, the negative stimuli of exertion and
ill-preparedness will work against you and hinder your ability to
adhere to an exercise plan.
we normally attribute stress to a mental condition, stress can affect
all organ systems of the body. High levels of stress reduce immune
sufficiency and make us more prone to illness.
Makes it Hard to Cope
reduces our mental ability to cope with the issues that crop up
regularly in day to day life. Stress hinders bone health and leads to
the atrophy of the muscles, because the body becomes more concerned
with core processes than the everyday functions that keep us
optimally healthy. Long term stress creates immense levels of fatigue
which prevent us from really getting anything out of our shorter and
shorter days. High stress makes good sleep nearly impossible to
attain. The great thing is that exercise relieves stress in a natural
way that no medicine or other method can. In cases of extreme anxiety
and stress, a mixture of medication and
exercise is commonly quoted as the best method of ensuring that
stress levels begin to subside.
Cortisol, and Aging
stress plays a big role in the aging process. Stress is correlated
with increased levels of cortisol in the blood stream. Cortisol is a
natural response to pain or negative physiological triggers such as
hunger. It plays an important role in proper human function, our
ability to withstand pain, and our ability to maintain a normal
circadian rhythm. Cortisol is actually what wakes us up in the
morning most efficiently. The body starts to become hungry, and the
body also recognizes that it has achieved an optimal level of rest,
so cortisol levels slowly increase in order to naturally wake us up
in the morning.
cortisol levels are too high in the body, it disrupts many
physiological processes. It becomes harder to be well rested and
sleep through the night because cortisol levels spike at inopportune
times. Also, cortisol levels eat at the body's ability to produce
healthy levels of testosterone, and when cortisol levels remain too
high over an extended period of time, the muscles start to atrophy
and the skin begins to sag, wrinkle, and loosen. High levels of
cortisol also lead to elevated levels of estrogen derivatives in the
male bloodstream which cause the body to store fat at an accelerated
pace. Long term sedentary habits and high stress speed up the male
aging process and lead directly to emasculation.
think, the easiest way to avoid this is through regular exercise!
Cortisol levels stay low, higher levels of Testosterone and Human
Growth Hormone dominate hormone balance, and the body melts fat and
builds muscle, improving physical appearance and mental aptitude.
This causes you to both look and feel younger than you actually are,
allowing you to make the most of your life.
Conscious Evolution Institute
at CEI believe that Exercise is an important component to any Hormone
Replacement Program. The above information benefits both those who
suffer from Hormone Deficiency and those who simply want to improve
their lives for the better. Youll notice that many of the benefits
provided by Human Growth Hormone and Testosterone are also provided
used in tandem, exercise, proper nutrition, and Hormone Replacement

fifteen, or even twenty years younger!
and Human Growth Hormone Kickstarters
Replacement Therapy works as a kind of kickstarter for those who have
lived a sedentary life for too long and are having trouble getting
into a routine workout plan. HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy helps
burn fat and provides enhanced energy levels which make it easier to
both start and stick with a workout plan. Both Testosterone and Human
Growth HRT also amplify the benefits of exercise. HGH helps you lose
weight while also funneling energy to your muscles while you are at
rest in order to enhance the effects of your anaerobic or
cardiovascular workout plan.
is a building block of strong muscles and masculine physique.
Testosterone acts as a sort of muscle booster which encourages your
muscles to respond more actively to physical activity. This is why
men have more developed muscles than their feminine counterpart, and
why those who abuse Testosterone often have super-human muscle tone
in comparison to those who have normal Testosterone levels.
Testosterone Abuse and HGH Abuse
we certainly dont encourage the abuse of either Testosterone or
Human Growth Hormone, Testosterone and HGH Deficiency also lead to
the opposite problem. The male body is not able to maintain the
optimal manly physique without proper levels of these vital hormones.
Testosterone, and Exercise
exercise does encourage the enhanced production of Human Growth
Hormone, as men age, the body's capacity to produce its own HGH and
Testosterone start to decline, and the positive benefits of exercise
decrease as a result. In addition to this, it becomes harder to get
motivated to exercise and the body starts to decline at a faster pace
even with a proactive preventative exercise regimen.
much should I exercise in order to maximize my health and the
benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy?
recommend that you engage in cardiovascular exercise at least four
times a week in order to benefit at an enhanced rate from HGH and
Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy. You should plan to run or
engage in a similarly vigorous cardiovascular activity for at least
thirty minutes. These benefits also continue to build if you decide
to exercise seven days a week. In addition to this, you should also
engage in weight training as well.
you should lift weights at least four times a week, preferably every
other day. Alternate between upper and lower body workouts every
session. Over time, your body should acclimate to this physical
stress and if you really enjoy working out you can start working out
daily, with a recommended rest period of at least one day per week.
You should still alternate between upper body and lower body weight
training in order to give your body time to recover and rebuild
itself. It is important to realize that rest plays a vital role in a
proper weightlifting routine.
muscles strengthen most during the period of rest between workouts,
so working out the same muscles every day overstresses them and
reduces the benefits provided by your workout. Alternating muscle
groups allows you to maximize the effects of your workout by working
out every day or every other day while also giving your muscles time
exercise is not affected in quite the same way by muscle fatigue,
because since you are not putting as intense pressure on your
muscles, they need less time to recover. Cardiovascular exercise
encourages general muscle tone rather than muscle growth, and
provides significant cardiovascular benefits that simple weight
lifting cant achieve. This is why its important to combine both
forms of exercise in order to maximize the benefits.

do Testosterone and HGH Hormone Levels Decline?
and HGH levels start to decline around the age of thirties and they
decrease at a steady rate across the lifespan. Even though from year
to year this may seem negligible, over time the changes can be
staggering. Although Testosterone and HGH HRT provide significant
