could we live past the age of 200

This in 3 parts so ill start with the obvious.
Diet. We all know that with a more healthy diet we could increase our life expectancy. Not many people get their 5 a day and those that do eat fruit probably have it all in one go in the morning, which means they have another 24 hours before they get the vital nutrients that their body needs. Research done on many antioxidant rich foods and drinks have shown that they have age slowing properties.
Secondly. Exercise, but I don't think I need to go into that, I'm pretty sure you all know the benefits.
Thirdly and this is the million dollar ingredient. "Growth hormone". GH is something that everyone from when they were born to around the age of 21 we produce a steady and constant amount of. After around 21 GH starts to deplete and Science has no answer as to why. At 30 we probably produce around 10% less than our earlier years, at 40 around 20 to 30% less, at 50 up to 50% less and so on. GH is very important for a healthy body to function correctly, it is because of this depletion scientists believe we suffer age related diseases. GH is important in the function of,
• Weight control
• healthy and youthful skin
• Increased Energy & Endurance
• Muscle tone
• Strengthen/Repair Immune System
• Natural Anti-Depressant
• Improve Sleep
• Improve Vision/Hearing
• Increase Libido
I believe that with an antioxidant rich diet of fruits, veg, green teas, dark chocolates spread throughout the day and with a safe supplement of GH which I am currently testing on myself, we can greatly increase our life expectancy.
