The most important ways to slow the aging process are to get adequate rest, eat a healthy diet, train consistently and deal with stressors. Aging athletes need to have better, more consistent self-care than younger athletes.
In addition to natural physiologic aging, exposure to the elements and environmental pollutants increase the free radical burden, or the need for antioxidants in our bodies. Free radicals accelerate the aging process, quite simply. Supplementing with specific nutrients can offset the negative effects that free radicals have on our health.
To combat free radicals, a diet rich in colorful foods (fruits and vegetables) along with an antioxidant supplement will supply abundant amounts of antioxidants to dampen your body’s production of age-accelerating free radicals.
Aging athletes often experience tight, shortened ligaments. With aging, tendons and ligaments become drier and less elastic (think of an old rubber band). Ligament Restore helps to keep the tendons and ligaments in good shape.
DHEA is a pro-hormone that helps the body make testosterone, among other functions. DHEA levels are highest in our early 20’s and slowly decline thereafter. Low levels play a role in the aging process.
Supplementing with DHEA can restore a bit of vigor and give testosterone levels a small boost. (Both women and men make and use testosterone)
