The average life expectancy in the US is 77 years. What do those years look like for you?
Naturally, cells divide only a certain amount of times in the body. The cell division process begins at the time of conception and is necessary for the development and growth of a life. As we grow, cells divide and multiply; however, as we continue to get older cell division slows down.
Many people have a common, preconceived understanding that only genetics play a key role in how long we live. While to some degree this is true, there are other positive epigenetic factors that play an even bigger role. Epigenetic factors are essentially the overall lifestyle changes made that can disrupt your own genetic make-up. Perhaps, this is how we can extend not just our lives, but the quality of life as well.
It is a fact of life and it’s inevitable. Our bones become brittle, skin starts to wrinkle, muscles get weaker, and energy plummets. These are the typical signs of aging. But, why do we age? The average life expectancy in the US is only 77 years. Can we do better? If so, how much longer can we live?

Studies show that around the age of 30 the aging process begins and your body stops production of a crucial protein known as human growth hormone or HGH.
This well documented hormone, produced by the pituitary gland, is considered by many to be the master hormone. This hormone is a foundational and well documented piece of your body’s endocrine system.
When HGH is diminished, the body starts to age. As aging sets in, the body may start to gain weight, lose energy and stamina, experience slower recovery, along with changing moods and changing sexual function.
