A wise man once said: “When you’re young, act young. When you’re old, act old. Don’t be old and try to act young. Just act old, it's just no fun.”
But that doesn’t necessarily have to be the case.
More and more people today are trying to stay active and fit as they age -- as they should. But a 55-year old body just doesn’t perform or act the same as it did 30 years prior. Activities like mowing the lawn, cleaning the gutters or even performing jobs that don’t involve sitting at a desk seem more tumultuous when you’re older.
But it doesn’t have to be like that. L-Arginine helps give your body energy it needs to blow through those tasks without the aches, pain and lack of stamina.
Let’s take a look at some of the ways our L-arginine supplement helps curb the process of aging.
Increase in Stamina – Now when you get older, you tired more easily. You went from playing soccer a few days a week in your 30’s, to a weekly basketball run at 45, to barely being able to chase around your grandchildren. In a study conducted at UCLA, researchers gave cyclists between 50 and 73 doses of L-Arginine as a way to spark the production of nitric acid. The results showed cyclists had a 16.7 percent increase in their anaerobic threshold, able to increase stamina. According to Livestrong.com, “The anaerobic threshold occurs when your body switches from using oxygen to stored sugar for energy, a point reached more quickly when you're out of shape.”
Skin benefits – We’ve talked about some of the skin benefits from L-Arginine, but we can rehash some of them. Better blood flow helps expedite the healing process. L-Arginine helps produce collagen as well. Collagen helps prevent elasticity in your skin. As we all know, people who age develop old and wrinkly skin.
Heart Health – We all know nitric oxide is a breakthrough in maintaining a healthy heart, which can wear over time. Relaxing the blood vessels help blood flow more freely through your body, putting less stress on the heart. Endothelium is a thin layer of cells that line blood vessels. As we age, this deteriorates. L-Arginine can help restore these aging cells.
