Of all the different theories of ageing, the growth hormone theory states that ageing occurs when the production of the natural human growth hormones decline overtime. Based on this theory, there are various synthetic growth hormone supplements available in the market to trigger and prolong the fountain of youth.

These growth hormones are produced naturally in the body, mainly in the pituitary gland. Also known as somatrophin, human growth hormone is a protein, which contains 191 amino acids and is usually found in children and young adults at it's highest levels to help fuel growth during childhood.

Deprenyl is a powerful and well known brain power drug belonging to the category of smart drugs called nootropics. While we all know the use of deprenyl for the treatment of mental decline and other mind related disorders and conditions such as senile dementia, alzheimer’s disease, parkinson’s disease etc., little do we know the fact that deprenyl also acts as a wonderful anti depressant, anti ageing supplement and life extending medicine.
Deprenyl is a selective monoamine oxidase (MAO) B inhibitor which works by increasing dopamine levels in the brain while lowering the amount of cellular deterioration in parts of the brain where dopamine is transmitted. Hence as deprenyl increases the dopamine levels in the brain, it works as an excellent anti depressant and mood enhancer. Its power to not only prevent but also reverse the damage caused to the vital brain cells due to the free radical effect, makes it act as great life extending and anti ageing medicine.
