“You don’t have to be a professional athlete to benefit from supplements!” Greg Pryor
I have been personally involved in the health industry for the past 30 years. I invite you to please read the enclosed information and invest in your health.
Here is a look at issues that specifically affect active individuals during their 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s and beyond.
“They eat a lot of sugar and processed foods.” Not only can a poor diet impede a young athlete’s abilities, but it can also create nutrient deficiencies that will further hinder performance. I suggest a high-quality multivitamin/mineral supplement is one sure way to guarantee younger athletes are getting what they need.
Just like their 20-something counterparts, athletes in their 30s have to be aware of how diet affects both performance and health. It a time to start thinking about calcium. “The body’s ability to gain calcium in the bones maxes out at about age 30. At that point you have to decide how fast you want to spend those stores, Most suggest 1,200 mg daily of calcium to prevent 30-somethings’ bone density loss.
When it comes to athletic longevity, caring for the joints early on is a smart thing to do. “Glucosamine is a smart decision to support joint health! It can certainly help speed recovery from injury or overuse.” And since glucosamine, and its complement chondroitin, work by repairing the chondrocytes, or cells that make up cartilage, ligaments and tendons, preventive supplementation with 1,500 mg of each per day can also help younger joints stay supple for years to come.
“The Fabulous 40s”
A 40-year-old body can no longer fight those unstable molecules like it did when it was 20. To prevent free radical damage to muscle tissue and from causing inflammation and soreness, I highly suggest staying active and boosting the antioxidant supplies by eating more fruits and vegetables and taking supplements. “You need a mix of antioxidants, not just vitamin C.
“Facing 50 And Beyond”
Arginine may already be one of the most popular sports supplements to ever hit the market, but its popularity with those older than 50 is just beginning. “We know that arginine improves strength, sprint time and recovery time in high-intensity exercise; now studies are showing it can also help older individuals who are just starting to retrain their muscles, or are battling chronic injuries or fatigue,” Two common myths are that 50-somethings can’t build muscle or perform at peak levels. The muscle loss generally accompanying age is primarily from disuse and a lack of protein, not from a physiological limitation. “As we age, protein levels need to go up; I suggest adding a high-quality whey protein powder in the morning or afternoon.
There are some particulars to consider in each decade of life, everybody can be supported by nutrition and supplements to boost general health, athletic performance and speed up recovery time.
The body requires upkeep for optimal function. Investing in multivitamins and supplements can improve your health and serve as a great way to add years to your life. Stay ahead of the game and be proactive with your health!
