Get Older….Stay Great!

 Nutrition in older athletes can help protect the joints from age-related degeneration. Aging causes the joints to become less flexible and lose a great range of motion. These limitations can compromise physical abilities/stamina. Here are some important nutrients for older athletes:

  • Vitamin C for collagen formation
  • Omega-3 oils (from nuts, seeds, oily fish and wheat germ) for anti-inflammatory effects.
  • Sulphur-containing amino acids (from some vegetables, meat, poultry, fish and dairy products) for joint cartilage health.
  • Bioflavinoids (from all fruit and vegetables, and buckwheat) for anti-inflammatory effects and improved local circulation.
  • Antioxidants (selenium and vitamin E) for protection against the damaging free radicals that proliferate in the body with age.
  • Some supplements may also be helpful, but check with your doctor before trying any.
