the Real Secret to Age-defying Vitality
A key factor influencing both how young
you look and feel is your overall vitality of body, mind and spirit.
Therefore, the path to defying your age must begin with the
question: How do I best increase my vitality?
suspect that things like exercise and super nutrition
influence your vitality, but there's something that's been shown to
be even more important. According to an impressive scientific study,
the factor that most influences your
vitality is how closely your
life reflects who and what you want to be.
That's right. Your vitality is very dependent on how well you live
your life in a manner consistent with your most heartfelt goals and
Unfortunately, most of us struggle to be who and what we want to be.
Instead of following our hearts, we spend much of our lives
wondering,"Why did I ...?" or "Why didn't I ...?"
One reason for this is that most of us spend our lives trying in
vain to control our external world when the key to being who and
what we want to be requires taking charge of our internal world. In
simplified terms, the life you truly want must begin with
Of course, if you just look at the people around you, it's obvious
that very few of us understand how to take charge of our internal
world - how to unite
body, mind and spirit for the common good.
We're all too focused on the external world to even give
self-mastery a thought. It's easier to blame the external world than
it is to admit that everything that truly matters in life has been
right there within you all along.
Being who and what you want to be should be easy, natural and fun.
And, with the right understanding, it is.

well as the degree of
self-mastery you have over your own life.

True Age-defying Herbs
First things first. What exactly do we mean by
Age-defying herbs should not be confused with what many people call
"longevity" herbs. Longevity herbs focus on helping you to live longer,
often by reducing the threat of cancer, heart disease and other common
causes of death. Yes, they promote general health and well-being, but
they may not have much of an impact on how good you look, feel and
function for your age.
"Anti-aging" herbs, on the other hand, tend to slow down or stop the
aging process. Perhaps they could be compared in function to getting an
oil change for your car; the oil change will limit further wear and
deterioration, but it's not going to make your car look or run better.
So, anti-aging herbs tend to inhibit the "normal" aging process.
In contrast, "age-defying" herbs are claimed by herbologists to help you
to actually defy your age. The hope in using them is that they will
actually help you to reverse the aging process, helping you to look,
feel and function as if you were several years, or even decades,
younger. They are frequently referred to as rejuvenatives, restoratives
or tonics, and they tend to promote greater physical and mental vitality
- and, frequently, greater sexual vitality.
On this website we present a list of 15 of the best, if not the
best, age-defying herbs, according to Ayurvedic and Chinese
herbologists. We have also included some very basic information about
each herb. Our intent is to get you started, aimed in the right
direction, so you can do more thorough research and determine which, if
any, of these herbs might be best for you.
WARNING: Using any herb can potentially have unintended
and negative consequences to your health or well-being, so you are
advised to do thorough research on each herb and consult with a doctor
or herbologist who is familiar with herbs and your personal health
Please don't mistake this as simply a typical warning to limit some
perceived legal liability on our part. Many herbs, for example, may
raise or lower your blood pressure, perhaps posing a real danger to you.
Other herbs may throw your mind and/or body out of balance. For example,
certain Chinese herbs are yin herbs, and too much yin can make you
mentally and physically lethargic, increase mucus or create other
cold-like symptoms, make your face breakout, etc. Too much yang, on the
other hand, may make you nervous or highly irritable, create dry skin,
mouth or eyes, etc.
We strongly suggest that you begin a health diary and closely track any
mental, physical or emotional changes that you experience that may be
being caused by the herbs. This can help you quickly recognize any
negative impact an herb might be having on you, or it can alternatively
make you more aware of any positive changes you might otherwise
