Here, we are mentioning a few supplements that he recommends for six very common health issues in elderly people. But before adding any supplements to your current diet and the medicines that you take, you need to ask your doctor first.

Lack of energy

1. SUPPLEMENTS: Acetyl-L-carnitine and alpha-lipoic acid

There are energy producers in our cells called mitochondria. By taking combination of acetyl-l-carnitine and alpha-lipoic acid the number of mitochondria (the energy producers ) in our cells increases and becomes more efficient.

Dosage: Take 1,000 mg of acetyl-L-carnitine and 200-400 mg of alpha-lipoic acid one time in a day.

2. SUPPLEMENT: Rhodiola

It is an adaptogenic herb that helps the body fight a variety of stressors and upsurge the energy levels in our body.

Dosage: 100-400 mg of a standardized extract once a day

Thank you for this very useful information. I am T2 diabetic and often have problem with energy. Sometimes I am so tired that I found it difficult to do things. I am 55 this year. What advice can you give in this direction?

Where are the references for all these claims? And, isn’t calcium from greens, milk much better absorbed than calcium citrate?

The latest consensus is that glucosamine/chondroitin do not help, in double-blind studies.

Also, why is nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene not mentioned?

Sorry to quench your fire but you really need references to support your claims. Not that these supplements aren’t helpful (glucosamine/chondroitin being questionable) there are many more that are more important to longevity than those listed here.
