Don't take hormones or so-called "hormone releasers" just because of advertising come-ons. Previously we thought the most powerful antiaging agent for postmenopausal women was estrogen-based hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Now we are told that this isn't the case. However, neither of those positions may be correct. It may be we've done the studies wrong. Nevertheless, there are a lot of hormone come-ons -- everything from dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) for men to a pill for human growth hormone (HGH). We don't know if any of these have a RealAge (physiologic age) benefit yet. Testosterone does have a benefit for specific populations. Remember, there is a substantial RealAge benefit for avoiding the wrong HRT.
