A study on longevity around the world has named Okinawa, Japan, Ovodda, Sardinia and Loma Linda, California as the three isolated communities having the highest potential for long life. Scientists have isolated a hormone named DHEA which they think could be responsible. 'It's a precursor of both oestrogen and testosterone and is produced in the adrenal glands.

While scientists don't know what it does, they do know the hormone decreases with age and levels decline at a much slower rate among the Okinawans....' click here

Probably too late for me to change my lifestyle but a topping up drop of that mystery hormone could work wonders for you youngsters! :o) TC.

If you take supplements you could lose body fat increase muscle mass and not need viagra. Just ordered a lorry load.

April 1st has come early this year.

There is nothing new or unusual about DHEA - it's been known about for many years and is a quite common "supplement" used by bodybuilders and suchlike.

A Google will tell you about it, including where to buy it from, should you wish to - which I strongly suggest you don't.
