Food that Keeps Men Over 60 Healthy

Men over 60 that aren’t physically active need about 2,000 calories per day.  Men that are somewhat physically active should consume 2200-2400 calories per day. Those that are very active need between 2400-2800 calories per day. Of course, a balanced diet is so much more than counting calories. There are other aspects that are more important for a healthy lifestyle. Here is a short list of foods that can help men live longer and healthier while feeling better about themselves.

What is MSM? (methylsulfonylmethane)

MSM is also useful as a agent against oxidative stress. While it is not, per se, an antioxidant, studies have shown that it can, indeed, help reduce oxidative stress and inflammation. This type of stress occurs when there is an imbalance in the number of free radicals in our systems, and the body’s ability to neutralize them. Free radicals can wreak havoc as they interact chemically with the components of our cells, such as DNA, trying to stabilize themselves by stealing electrons from individual cells.

I particularly suggest vegetable and fruit dietary supplements to everyone who is traveling.

Niacin Supplementation And Longevity – Can Niacin Improve Our Life Span?

Other health benefits of niacin include promoting heart health and keeping cholesterol levels under control. Niacin improves circulation, reduces high blood pressure, and lowers blood sugar levels. Niacin is a powerful antioxidant, which removes toxic free radicals from the body and prevents aging. Niacin also lowers blood pressure, which means it can help lower blood sugar, which is helpful for anti-aging. The elderly often have poorer overall health due to the effects of stress and free radicals in their system.

Is Coconut Oil A Superfood?

Now that we all know just how beneficial coconut oil can be, the only question is, just how should we be using it?  What products are available? Natural, organic, virgin coconut oil provides all the benefits mentioned above because it contains all of the ingredients needed to provide them. Its major disadvantage may be that it is a solid substance at room temperature. Another choice to consider is fractionated coconut oil, which is a distilled version of the original. Fractionization allows the long-chain fatty acids contained in virgin coconut oil to solidify and be removed, leaving an ultra-light, odorless oil that will remain liquid at cooler temperatures. (this is called oil-pulling) This means that it will be more easily absorbed by the skin if you are considering using it topically.
