Anti Aging Herbs For Longevity

Aug 18, 2007
As the Baby Boomer generation is growing older they are getting more and more concerned with staying young. Herbal supplements are becoming very popular with this group of Americans. The Chinese have been researching the benefits of natural cures for the aging process for centuries.

Scientists are applying modern methods to determine the precise effect of these plants have on the anti-aging process. Many of the effects that have been confirmed by modern science have already been studied and popularized in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Jiaoqulan.

Jiaogulan is a Chinese herb also called the Longevity Herb and in Japan it is called Amachazuru and it is used to increase the Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) in the body. Researchers use the SOD levels in studies as a reliable indicator of long life. SOD is one of the body's most important antioxidants. Human studies have showed that SOD levels can returned to youthful levels after taking Jiaogulan for only one month.

Reishi Mushroom.

The Reishi mushroom has been uses by the Chinese and Japanese and is also known as the "Elixir Of Immortality". It may have the ability to promote long life and improve the healing ability of the human body. It is believed to lower blood pressure, strengthen the immune system, has anti-tumor properties, improves liver functions, improves oxygen utilization, and inhibits histamine release.

Shilajit.

Shilajit is found in the Himalayan mountains and has been used by the local residents for centuries. It is not unusually for the people living in that region to live to be over 100 years of age. Shilajit has been used for increasing physical strength, anti-aging, increased sex drive, injury healing, enhances mental function and the immune system.

Foti.

Foti also called He Shou Wu in China is legendary in its ability to lengthen life. Modern studies have show that Foti has toe ability to lower serum cholesterol, prevent premature gray hair, promote red blood cell growth, and to increase longevity on a cellular level. This herb raises the level of the naturally occurring antioxidant Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) in the body.

The human body can becomes accustomed to taking herbs over time, and the effects will become less and less beneficial. It is necessary that your body is able to adjust to being without the herb for the effects to be noted when you start taking them again. I recommend that you take herbs for 4 weeks and then abstain for 1 week.

If you just feel that taking vitamins, supplements or herbs to fight the aging process would be beneficial to you then you should always consult with a good health care professional prior to starting any type of home treatment.

Always consult your doctor before using this information.
