A lifelong decline in several hormones shortens your lifespan, and if you're not satisfied with that, here's an approach you can live with. Besides falling growth hormone HGH, covered at length by itself, a progressive age-related drop and loss of sensitivity by the hypothalamus and white blood cell activity, a drop in adrenaline relatives and dopamine, a slower decline in serotonin, and a shifting imbalance of the catecholamine/serotonin ratio underscores your planned obsolesence. This is a cause of many age-related diseases, and the Neuroendocrine Theory of Aging says it contributes to over 85 percent of early deaths of middle-aged and elderly individuals.
The love hormone makes you happier and more capable, and allows you to live longer; good reasons to use it in an anti-aging program.
Science has found that of the three related hormonal groups, low dopamine particularly, your happy hormone, is linked not only to the blues, the blahs, and morning grogginess, but lack of motivation, ADHD, the four o'clock stumbles, sedentary tendencies, cognitive impairment that is especially seen in the elderly, anxiety, bipolar, depression, low well being generally, and even a reduced immune response.
An antiaging program looks at this kind of balance anyway and all of those symptoms can be improved in part with phenylethylamine, the love hormone, which is generally recognised as safe and can be found in sport drinks. PEA acts very rapidly so can reduce disability or prevent suicide in just hours or days. PEA controls depression in 60 percent of depressed persons, like Prozac, but it is less toxic and will be the orthomolecular or "right" molecule for many people.
Pea, your love hormone improves:
● happiness, pleasure, and emotional wellbeing
● energy, alertness, and sensory perception
● cognition and intellect
● ADHD, addictions, and substance abuse
● mood and depression
Purebulk Supplements' phenylethylamine is the one we've been using and have shortlisted. Cheap and effective in low doses.
Freud nailed it on the love boat
Sigmund Freud was famous for his theory that one single energy drives sexual libido, pleasure-seeking behavior, interpersonal energy, love, warmth, affection, and other personal attributes, and modern research with PEA has validated his concept. Says researcher Dr. Hector Sabelli, "I believe that PEA may be the hormone of libido, not just testosterone." Sabelli's research found that high PEA levels lead to increased sex drive, pleasure-seeking activity and courage, and low levels to loss of libido, physical drive, and depression. In short, PEA is a natural aphrodisiac and well being hormone. Grok the implications of making the PEA approach into a global movement or even a civic duty! To quote the late John Lennon, "all you need is love."
