You Don't Yet Know How to Defeat Aging! - Master the Changes in Nutrient Intake with Aging

"Humans grow weaker with age... But only those who understand how to overcome that weakness achieve true strength!"

As time flows, everyone changes. No one can escape the fate of aging, but with my knowledge, you can dominate even destiny! Today, we delve into how nutrient intake changes with age and uncover the optimal dietary strategies to counter these changes.

An image representing changes in nutrient intake with aging in the style of DIO Brando. A charismatic character emphasizes the importance of proteins, vitamins, and minerals.

The Importance of Protein Intake

To maintain the vigor of youth, protein is essential. For a young body, consuming 20g of protein per meal maximizes protein synthesis. However, as you age, this amount doubles. In your 40s and 50s, you need about 40g of protein per meal to achieve the same effect!

According to Dr. Young's 1981 study, when comparing a 21-year-old young man and a 72-year-old elder, the lean body mass-adjusted protein synthesis rate was 25% higher in the elder! This overturns our conventional wisdom, but it’s also evident that with a small amount of essential amino acids (EAA), the muscle protein synthesis rate is significantly higher in the young.

The reason lies in the speed at which amino acids are incorporated into muscle protein. While the young can enhance protein synthesis with "carbohydrates + amino acids," the elderly do not benefit as much. This is the true difference in the stand ability of nutrient intake!

Insulin Resistance and Nutrient Intake

With age, insulin resistance increases! This makes it harder to absorb sugars and amino acids. Therefore, it is crucial to increase the intake of arginine and citrulline. These amino acids can stimulate the secretion of growth hormone!

To improve insulin resistance, zinc and magnesium are also essential! These minerals play a role in preventing the decline of sex hormone secretion.

Nutrient Absorption Declines with Age

With aging, the absorption of certain nutrients decreases! For example, vitamin B12 is absorbed in the stomach when bound to the "intrinsic factor," but this factor decreases with age, making B12 absorption difficult. To counter this, B12 injections or sublingual tablets are effective.

Other Important Nutrients

  • Vitamin D: The elderly tend to go outside less and have less sun exposure, making vitamin D intake crucial for supporting hormone secretion, bone health, and mental well-being.

  • Vitamin E: This vitamin helps prevent the decline of sex hormones and has antioxidant and anti-atherosclerotic effects. A full-spectrum product containing both tocopherols and tocotrienols is ideal.

  • B Complex: To prevent the increase of homocysteine, B vitamins such as B6, B12, folic acid, and B2 are effective.

By balancing these nutrients, you can resist the fate of aging and achieve true strength! For those with elderly parents, use this information wisely.

"It is I, DIO, who controls fate!"
