Are these anti aging supplements good for you? Will these supplements turn back the clock? According to the advertisements of the anti aging supplements and antiaging nutrition hormones all you have to do is take a pill, and it will work like a miracle converting your body with youth! It does not sound to be true. There is no such magic. They don't tell you that probably these may harm your body!
Note that none of these hormone supplements has convincing medical evidence. DHEA is a popular antiaging supplement. It is being propagated that DHEA also increases life span, increases muscle and bone strength and boosts immunity. However, DHEA may increase the risk of developing heart disease, says Australian researcher Dr David S Celermajer of the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney [J. Am. Coll. Cardiol., 2003, 42, 1967-1974]. Dr Celermajer and colleagues found that DHEA may increase the formation of foam cells, which are known to contribute to the development of arterial plaques. The researchers however say, "Further basic and clinical studies are required to further elucidate the potentially adverse cardiovascular effects of DHEA." It has been said that even short-term use of DHEA or testosterone may cause liver damage.
