The average lifespan of a human being is seen as being about 80 and the maximum lifespan is seen to be about 124. Yet over the last century huge advancements in our knowledge of aging have occured. Scientists have been saying in the media that immortality in people is 30-40 years away from being achieved. In fact they already know how it works but the experiments with people arent due to be finished for another 30-40 years.
So what do they know?
Telomeres - These are lengthened by testosterone but high levels of the hormone are required. Unfortunately even if you get the high levels your body has a sex hormone thermostat build into it to return them to normal.

Aspartic Acid - This wonderful amino-acid is found in high amounts in strawberries and milk. Its also sold as a gym supplement and its a well known aritifical sweetener (aspartime). This stuff makes the human body pump out huge amounts of testosterone. D-aspartic acid increases testosterone in here - http://www.ergo-log....stosterone.html
Aromatase - This is the sex hormone thermostat. Inhibitors to prevent it are nicotine and nicotine like chemicals. For those who dont want to buy nicotine gum or patches then the blue pigment in blueberries works. Aromtase destroys testosterone in here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aromatase
Its that simple for men. For women estrogen is produced by aromatase breaking down testosterone so they cant take an aromatase inhibitor. They need to stop the break down of estrogen instead but unfortunately those chemicals can only be attained with a prescription.
