Fighting the Changes in Active Men’s Bodies As They Age

Aging may bring experience and wisdom, but the human body often shows signs that the years are advancing as muscles weaken, blood flow slows, and healing becomes more difficult. Sometimes hips or knees begin to wear out for active individuals, and often there are a few more aches and pains associated with an intense workout. The good news is – this is all normal, and there are ways to combat the signs of aging.

How Taking Vitamins Can Help

While food does provide the body with some nutrients, experts stress; there are many other vitamins and minerals that cannot be found in ample quantities in the modern diet. Some of these vitamins can help increase and support specific health concerns of physically active men. This includes men’s testosterone levels, prostate health, and blood pressure. Other vitamins and minerals can help detoxify the body, strengthen muscles, and chase the blues away. Also, if you are unable to get outdoors into the sunshine very often, don’t forget to take vitamin D. Not only will vitamin D help stabilize your mood, it can aid in the prevention of bone loss by increasing the amount of calcium the body absorbs.

How Using Supplements Can Help

In this fast-paced world, eating out has become the norm rather than the exception for many active men. Often these meals contain overly processed food, high levels of sugar, and many unknown chemical additives as the weary men dine on take-out or grab-and-go food. Add high-stress jobs to their never-ending day, and it is easy to see how vitamin packed men over 50 supplements can support the needs of the active modern man.

How Staying Active Can Help

After a long day at the office, many people believe they have been active and require no extra exercise. While this may be true for some, more often than not the day’s activities contain the wrong type of movement to be of benefit to an aging body. Taking a brisk walk can ease muscle pain and improve cardiovascular function. Lifting weights can strengthen muscles and help with weight loss. Stretching and yoga can improve sleep quality and enhance flexibility. Taking a pet on a walk can reduce winter blues. Most important of all, staying active can help the body appear and feel younger.

Chronologically the body may age as the years creep along but fighting the signs of aging can be easy. By getting the needed vitamins and minerals, staying active, and taking appropriate supplements, the body can feel years younger.

    I teach a fitness class, and have participants of all ages from people in their 20’s up to 88 years old! My older participants tell me how much strength training has really helped their bones, muscles and circulation. As I get older as well, I see the importance of exercise, eating healthy and supplements.
