6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Morris on 1 Feb. 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found the approach taken by the book to be overly-technical, with references to papers that the average reader cannot access or understand, combined with a rather lazy and un-rigorous set of conclusions.

A typical chapter might run along the lines of this: Melatonin is a wonder drug! Studies have shown that it has the following benefits [obscure references]. Young people have high levels of Melatonin; old people don't. Conclusion: you should take Melatonin supplements.

There is little discussion of why, for example, Melatonin levels are lower in older people, or what dietary or lifestyle factors might contribute to this. Just pop the pill and live for ever!

There are also plenty of contradictions in the book. The chapter on exercise quotes studies suggesting that 1 hour of exercise per day is optimal, and that professional athletes and those who exercise for 2 hours per day won't live as long. A later chapter in the book then gives personal stories of people in their seventies or eighties who can perform outstanding physical feats such as running marathons, etc. These people are nearly all professional athletes, or people who train for several hours per day. Duh! What is the message here?

There is very little dicsussion of diet, calorie restriction, etc. The emphasis seems to be on which pills you should take and which wonder-foods from the Amazonian rainforests might add an extra year to your lifespan.

Also the claim that this is in some way "official" seems far-fetched. There are better books on this fascinating subject.

The Only Anti-Aging Reference Book You'll Need 15 Dec. 2005
By Chan Joon Yee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are 6 sections to this wonderful book.

Section One deals with the theories of aging and ends by delving into the various body systems that are affected by the aging process.

Section Two goes into the endocrine system. Entire chapters are devoted to growth hormone, melatonin, oestrogen, testosterone and thyroid hormone. The authors give us the facts on how these hormones affect or are affected by the aging process. Supplementation is mentioned, but the authors made no attempt to "sell" anything.

Section Three deals with nutritional supplements. The list is quite exhaustive and make a very good reference for anyone considering supplementation. Here again, the reviews are quite balanced. No "miracle" nutrients and contraindications are mentioned as well.

Section Four deals with lifestyle factors in anti-aging. Topics include diet, detox, exercises, anti-stress tips, skin care and protection from pollutants. A lot of unsurprising, unsensational yet sound advice here.

Section Five gives us insight into what some health gurus do to stay fit and healthy. It won't be easy for any of us holding a fulltime job in the city to follow. There is also mention of stem cell research and other cool stuff that will be coming our way soon.

Section Six provides a glossary and some references as well as a directory of anti-aging resources.

The greatest thing about this book, is that it is "scientifically" written by 2 doctors who live up to their professional training. Aimed only at informing and educating the reader, it provides nothing sensationally pro this or anti that. If you can only afford one book on this topic, buy this one.

SAizen Injectable HGH compared to Ghr Platinum. 10 Sept. 2007
By T. Sanderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have read most of Dr Klatz boks concerning human growth hormone and have tried many products over the past 7 years. I have used the injectable HGH called saizen i purchased from International Antiaging Systems online cheapest and most reliable source, and found it to be amazing stuff. For best results i normally use the injections every other night and on the odd nights i use ghr platinum antiaging formula available on Amazon. The ghr platinum works almost as well as the injectable. I tried doing injections every night and it caused mild side effects i didnt like and found i got zero side effects doing the injections on odd nights. When i run out of the expensive injectable hgh i just take the ghr platiinum every night as it is almost as potent plus i dont have to do the needles. The ghr platinum is the most potent capsule formula i have found as i have tried em all. Also use DHEA as it increases testtosterone. The GHR store online sells the platinum and dhea.
Good Overview of Anti-Aging Medicine! 19 Mar. 2013
By Brian S. Shore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a comprehensive work on the subject of anti-aging medicine, and includes information on Hormone Replacement Therapy (HGH, Testosterone, Estrogen/Progesterone, etc.); the use of foods, vitamins, minerals, herbal supplements, and other substances, to raise one’s own hormone levels naturally; and also how diet, exercise, stress, and other lifestyle choices can be made to favor one’s longevity and quality of life. The book is thoroughly footnoted and highlights key research done in these areas, and about the only shortcoming is that this book was published in 2004. However, it still is a Classic in the field of anti-aging medicine, and is a must-read for anyone considering an anti-aging regimen. In particular, the section of the book which describes the role of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbal supplements, and other substances in slowing down of aging processes, is excellent!
