Book DescriptionGrowing older doesn't have to mean succumbing to chronic diseases such as stroke, dementia, arthritis, and heart disease. The growing awareness that the aging process can be beat has inspired a host of remedies and supplements, some of which are not as effective as claimed. Written by a pioneer in the field of anti-aging medicine, Marios Kyriazis's Anti-Aging Medicines examines drugs and remedies commonly used to forestall aging. In-depth chapters examine the effects that DHEA, growth hormone, and co-enzyme Q10 can have in slowing the aging process. Kyriazis's book also helps separate fact from fiction, providing intriguing research into controversial chemicals, such as resveratrol, the ingredient in red wine which has been shown to retard aging. Cutting-edge advice about nutrition, exercise, and other lifestyle factors rounds out the cadre of powerful yet easy-to-follow remedies found in this welcome, accessible guide.
