Aging Supplements

aging supplements

Now that I am getting older, I'm beginning to think about how to keep my body in peak physical condition as I age. I know a lot of people who take anti aging supplements, but I don't know. It seems like it might be just a fad. I mean, I eat nutritiously, run ten miles a day, and try to get the full nine hours forty-five minutes of sleep a night which my body seems to crave. I'm just skeptical that I could even do any better than that. Nonetheless, I guess aging supplements are worth looking into.

I've recently heard a lot of good things about a few anti aging supplements. DHEA, for example, is supposed to be good. It is some substance produced by the body's adrenal glands, but as you get older, its levels drop off which is supposed to be a bad thing. According to scientists, DHEA is one of the best aging supplements because it is such a necessary part of your own health and internal chemistry. Taking it increases levels of testosterone, as well as growth factor, which helps the body heal and continuously repair cell damage.

Another of the aging supplements which is supposed to be good is flaxseed oil. Actually, it is not only flaxseed oil, but anyone of a number of oils containing essential fatty acids, including fish oil also. These acids are supposed to exert a powerful anti aging effect and contribute to fighting free radicals. Unfortunately, no one has been able to yet explain to me what all of that means, but I know many people who swear by their oil anti aging supplements daily, so there might be something to it.

Ultimately, I'm not sure how much difference all of these aging supplements really make compared to good old fashioned exercise. For me, not only is it exhilarating to get out running, jogging, or swimming, but it makes me feel younger. On days when I do it, I feel young and healthy and full of life, while when I don't I feel much more old, achy, and crotchety. There is, in my opinion, no miraculous anti aging supplement which will solve all your problems. Rather, it is a matter of doing your best each and every day to live a healthy and active life, while eating right and avoiding unhealthy habits. A glass of wine before bed, and no whiskey before noon I always say.
