DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a hormone that decreases dramatically as a person ages. According to Etienne-Emile Baulieu, French researcher at the College De France, you only have 10 percent of the DHEA at the age of 75 that you had at the age of 25. In a research study he has been giving elderly people low doses of synthetic DHEA as an anti-aging agent. There has been evidence that DHEA may improve brain function, help the immune system, decrease memory loss, reduce muscle fatigue and bone fragility, and may also help block cancer!
The mineral chromium promotes rises in this anti-aging hormone. If you are age 20 or older, you have almost a 100 percent chance of lacking sufficient levels of chromium. You are thereby possibly aging much faster than necessary! You should take a chromium supplement daily of 200 micrograms to help stop accelerated aging. The supplement should ideally be an organic “biologically active” form of chromium, such as chromium nicotinate, for easier absorption and utilization by your body’s metabolism. If it is inorganic, your body must first convert it to an active form before it can do any good. Since some people do not do this well, it is better to use the organic form.
