She should bottle it, and make a fortune. I would buy.

Today my daughter 55 and I are both using an HGH gel and getting pretty significant changes in our aging bodies.
I vaguely remember when they first came out with hgh many years ago, and it was terribly expensive. Hopefully it's gone down a lot. What brand do you take please?

I was offered injections 20 yrs ago by an integrative MD and it was $300 a month and I declined plus I don't want injections and for sure NOT steroids...there are so many companies who make up products and many sell a lot of high priced amino acids in their products. I'll send you a DM.

HGH is not cheap, but for what my daughter and I are appreciating, $4 a day is worth every penny and keeping us from falling apart in old age.

Thank you jamin. It's so much easier, and cheaper to ask you since you are pleased with what you are taking then to have to experiment.

I've talked about Grape Seed EX a lot and I've been taking it 25 yrs soon. It cleans and thins the blood so those taking it do have more energy...blood is cleaner and thinner.

Now those taking pharma blood thinner can't do both.

My husband is your age, exactly. He sleeps poorly, and yes, often is tired due to that, but if he sleeps well he's not at all tired and does a full day of chores at home, no problem. But he says he is not even like you when he doesn't sleep well. He is pretty much able to do a good day's "work". (Retired but we care for many animals as former rescuers.) I don't think you are entirely normal. Me, too, at 70. But, there is this feature: almost 4 years ago I became a vegan for the animals and he is not vegan. But he eats, essentially, vegan due to my cooking. He once had cardiovascular blockage and believe me, he was tired! He had an angiogram and it showed blockage in the main coronary artery. That blockage has melted away which is exactly what happens if you eat a whole food plant based diet. I am saying: You may be slender, think you are healthy and yet have plaque in various arteries. I can't believe how the plaque has gone to zero in my lower arteries and how it has gone way down in my carotid arteries SIMPLY but eating a zero animal products diet. And no oil in the cooking. Watch You Tube videos by the vegan former President of the American College of Cardiology, Kim Williams, MD, on diet and cardiovascular health.

We have a friend who is in her mid-80's. I said that to her and she acted like she wanted to punch me. I don't know why, but in retrospect it's kind of funny.

Tanyafd, there are so many things to do or get involved in. One stupid example; my wife and I walk 3 to 5 miles a day. I carry a suction cup picker and pick up trash as we go. My little city is cleaner because of it. We give ourselves points for stupid things like those little single serve alcohol bottles or drink cups from Dairy Queen. When we get to 500 points we get treat. There are many places to volunteer. It's enough of a purpose for us.
