Regular physical activity has long been found to associate to the prevention of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and other chronic diseases, but regular walking in the younger elderly with contribution to longevity, diseases free and successful aging have not been studied.
According to the Hokkaido University Graduate School of Medicine, in the assessment of 1239 community-dwelling men aged 64/65 years, moderated walking showed to induce longevity and happy aging(1) with or without major critical diseases such as heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, or cancer.
In fact, in the 1990 study of 20,004 men and 21,159 women in Miyagi Prefecture in rural northern Japan (40-64 year of age) regular walking reduces risk for all-cause mortality, particular among nonsmoking men and women(2).
Dr. Fortes C and colleagues at the joint study led by London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine said, " elderly people walking at open air for four times weekly had 40% decreased risk of mortality" and " supports the encouragement of physical activity in advanced age for increasing longevity"(3). And high levels of walking activity are associated with better survival insisted by the Catholic University of Sacred Heart(4).
There is always a concern of elderly and care givers regarded to the degeneration of cartilage in the advanced age in contribution to arthritic-inflammatory diseases(5). As the degeneration of cartilage due to aging may make cartilage more brittle, less elastic and less wearable. leading to the disease of bone and injuring the bone easily(6).
Over weight and obesity are found to associate the risk factors and risks of rapid progression of the disease(7)(8). In the discussion of obesity versus osteoarthritis, Dr. Sartori-Cintra AR and the research team at Universidade Estadual de Campinas, indicated that obesity is associated to wide range of diseases, such as osteometabolic diseases, including osteoporosis and osteoarthritis and suggested that physical activity combined with changes in diet composition can reverse the inflammatory and leptin resistance, reducing progression or preventing the onset of osteoarthritis(9).
Glucosamine, a compound of the simple sugar glucose and the amino acid glutamine, is a precursor for glycosaminoglycans(10), a major component of joint cartilage(11). Intake of glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin sulfate, hyaluronic acid, collagen hydrolysate, or nutrients, such as antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids showed to prevent cartilage degeneration and treat arthritis, according to study(11).
Without the concern of further damage to the cartilage, regular walking may lead you to a golden retirement with Diseases Free, passing Age of 100+.
For convenience, you may want to buy joint cartilage supplements from you local drug store to prevent cartilage degeneration
