The Senior: Supporting Energy Levels at Any Age

The Senior: Supporting Energy Levels at Any Age

Sep 2021
Recent Article

There’s a reason we have the phrase “nanna nap”.

As we age, it’s natural for our energy levels to decrease. Despite wanting to enjoy the golden years, we may find ourselves not having the same energy as we are used to, which can be discouraging and frustrating.

Even though we may not be able to stop our bodies from this natural process, there are ways to age healthily and boost energy levels naturally. To do so, we need to understand where our energy is coming from and how to support our energy levels.

The answer is mitochondria, cell organelles found in every cell of our bodies. Mitochondria act like a second digestive system, transforming the nutrients we ingest through food to cellular energy that our bodies use to keep us moving.

There are a few ways to support our energy levels after the age of 55.

Start a high protein diet

Research has shown that protein is a key nutrient for older adults. Some benefits of a high protein diet include muscle health, energy balance, weight management and cardiovascular function.

Keep walking

A new study found that aerobic exercise, in particular high-intensity interval training such as biking and walking can help the cells to make more proteins for their mitochondria to generate energy. A 30 minute walk every day or most of the days can contribute to our overall health even at a cellular level.

Fuel your mitochondria

Mitochondria requires the right fuel to keep bringing energy to every cell in our bodies. Ubiquinol, the active form of Coenzyme Q10, is a naturally occurring antioxidant vital for the functioning of our mitochondria which supports energy production in our bodies. However, as we age, our body’s natural level of Ubiquinol starts to decline. Ubiquinol can be found in certain foods like oily fish, organ meats and whole grains.
