Top Supplements for Aging Parents

Taking care of aging parents can encompass a lot. Diet and health are some of the most important factors to consider for anti-aging. Diet and exercise are important, but as we age we may need extra nutrients to focus on certain functions susceptible to the aging processes. This would include supplements for heart and cognitive functions, glucose and antioxidant support. 

Vinpocetine 

Cognitive brain function can decline as we age. Vinpocetine is derived from vincamine, a major alkaloid of the periwinkle plant. Vinpocetine has been shown to improve blood supply to the brain, increase oxygen and glucose use by the brain, and support normal attention, memory, and concentration. The brain is 60 percent fat and requires healthy fats to reduce inflammation. Omega-3 fatty acids such as those found in salmon, walnuts, and flax seed have been shown to reduce inflammation and boost memory. 

Resveratrol 

AMPK or 5’ AMP-activated protein kinase is an enzyme that plays an important role in cellular energy homeostasis. It also stimulates metabolism to burn glucose and reduce body fat; but it declines as we age. Resveratrol is a plant compound found primarily in the skins of red grapes. It is a powerful antioxidant, and has been shown to increase AMPK and to support normal cardiovascular and cellular functions. 

Natural Vitamin C 

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin found in foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables, particularly citrus fruits. Natural Vitamin C (not synthetic made from corn syrup) is an important supplement for aging because it has been shown to affect over 300 heart functions. More importantly, it helps break up arterial plaque and calcium deposits. In addition, vitamin C supports normal immune function, especially during cold and flu season when older adults may be more susceptible to illness.
