New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Why Women Live Longer than Men?
so today I want to answer the question why do women live longer than men men on average live 76 years women 81 years why is that well it has to do with one hormone estrogen now let me explain in the body you have this constant battle or this balance between oxidation and antioxidants so whether it’s chemicals stress too much sugar that produces all this oxidation you also have from the food antioxidants and your body actually makes antioxidants to counter this oxidation if we have too much oxidation at the genetic level and not enough antioxidants we get a buildup of free radicals now what does that mean free radical is an unpaired electron so we have this little atom with electrons and normally we would have to that balance each other so if we only had one that would be unpaired electrons creating a very unstable atom and then that’s what really creates the damage I’m talking about damage within the DNA and various proteins in the body but estrogen can come in as a very powerful antioxidant and actually give you what you need to balance out the oxidation and on top of that we have something called phytoestrogens from plants okay cruciferous vegetables for example that can also help the antioxidant networks as well you have genes which are like the hardware very similar to let’s say you have a DVD that’s holding several movies ok it’s like storing certain movies and it has a playlist for example then you have something called a DVD player to be able to use the discs you cannot extract data from that DVD unless you have the player so the genes are the DVD which encodes all the information and you can’t use that information unless you have the player well that is epigenetics epigenetics means above genetics and there’s certain things in the environment that express these genes or turn them on or turn them off like nutrients stress levels exercise fasting and hormones and estrogen has the capacity to cause certain longevity genes to be expressed or to be turned on so yes women have to go through the pain of pregnancy having the menstrual cycle menopause but they get to live longer by five years thanks for watching if you’re liking this content please subscribe now and I will actually keep you updated on future videos

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