Second Puberty: What Is It & What Can You Do About It?

If you are currently staring at the screen with horror, sorry about that. Puberty for the first go around wasn’t exactly a wonderful time for most of us, so the idea that we have to go through it again? There’s probably a reason that second puberty isn’t exactly well known, despite the fact that it definitely happens – and it’s not pretty for those who go through it.

Between the ages of 28 and 33 (with some leeway on either side), second puberty is your body adjusting to its new status as a fully-fledged adult. You’ll grow more body hair, your voice will become deeper (this is why most of us can tell how old someone is just from their voice on the phone), and you’ll begin to tire faster. It’s also likely to be the onset of what are referred to as the “signs of aging”, especially those in relation to your skin and body. YIKES!

The one benefit of second puberty is that, unlike the first time around, you’re more able to fight it this time. No sitting back and just letting the worst happen to you; you can fight fire with fire and battle your way through. All you need is a strategy, which it just so happens, you can find right here:

Learn Your Supplements:

You’re going to need a little extra help as you move into the second phase of life. Second puberty is a time when the collagen in our bodies begins to deplete, which ultimately can result in deep wrinkles and facial lines. It’s also not great news for calcium (which can impact bone health in later years) and hormonal function (meaning the beginning of a decrease in fertility.

Fight Back: Introduce yourself to a supplement regime that can help ease the burden of time. Most users tend to be very satisfied with collagen supplements and these calcium-containing AlgaeCal reviews are definitely something to keep in mind. If you plan to have children in the future, then it might be worth talking to your doctor about a hormonal blood panel just to see where you’re at health-wise, as well as other options for becoming pregnant.

Slowing Down Time:

Around the time of second puberty, your body is going to want to slow down. You might find your energy reserves are depleted and that you become tired faster than you did before. You’ll also find that your metabolism slows, making it more likely that you will *gasp* gain weight.

Fight Back: The biggest way to conquer the great slowdown is to refuse to give in to it. Keep yourself active, especially if you’re concerned about the slowing of your metabolism – exercise has been known to boost it. You should also try to avoid substances that can bring you to a grinding halt. For example, by the time of second puberty, it might be worth turning your back on endless hangovers every weekend. Drink in moderation and you’ll see your energy reserves spike.

Puberty was lame, but second puberty has the potential to be a lot better since your smart adult brain can concoct a plan of action! 😀
