Someone brought up a question that I want to talk about today. Why do women live longer than men? Do women live longer than men in the first place? On average, yes. It has to do with estrogen.

Men vs. women life expectancy:

Men – On average 76 years
Women – On average 81 years

In the body, there is a constant battle going on between oxidation and antioxidants. If there is too much oxidation at the genetic level and not enough antioxidants you will end up with a build-up of free radicals.

Free radicals – Create damage within the DNA and various proteins in the body.

Estrogen can come in as a very powerful antioxidant and give you what you need to balance out the oxidation. Phytoestrogens from plants, like cruciferous vegetables, can also help the antioxidant networks.

Genes – The hardware for example (like a DVD)
Epigenetics – The software for example (like a DVD player)

You can’t extract data from the “DVD” (genes) without the “DVD player”(epigenetics).

There are certain things in the environment that express or “turn on” and “turn off” these genes like:

• Nutrients
• Stress levels
• Exercise
• Fasting
• Hormones

Estrogen has the capacity to cause certain longevity genes to be expressed or “turned on.”
