Ever wonder what magical anti-aging potion over-educated, vain women are panting to get their hands on? Human Growth Hormone serum. The kind you can only get at a doctor’s office which is delivered by syringe and usually only available to children with growth issues.

They have also found that melatonin is the number one anti-cancer hormone produced in the body and acts as a powerful antioxidant.

Given my hereditary vanity and my playgirl lifestyle, I was compelled – out of sheer preservationary panic – to extensively research anti-aging methods. This research led to a hardy consumption of resources relating to hormones.
Hormones are the chemical messengers that keep our body in balance. They control pretty much every system in our body including our reproductive system, our metabolic processes, our immunity, our digestion, our ability to regenerate and the speed at which we age. Continue reading
