Aging requires specific nutritional support and a little extra care, but that shouldn’t stop you from embracing the goodness of some of your best years.

How to Live Your Best Life After 50

Whether you’ve just hit the major milestone that is your 50th birthday or you’re already thriving into your 60s and 70s, we know you’re going to make this chapter of your life the best yet. Life after 50 can be full of adventure, travel, fun with family and friends, and more – making it so essential that you feel your best for every moment.

Think about all the important lessons you’ve learned so far. You’ve already had tons of amazing experiences and you’re armed with years of wisdom and knowledge to pass on to your children and grandchildren. You’ve learned from the past and you’re excited to see what the future holds. This new chapter of your life holds so much possibility, which is why it’s important to focus on what matters most to you; perhaps it’s your loved ones, your career or future goals, your home, or your health. Your best days aren’t behind you — they’re right in front of you! Here’s how to live your best life after 50.

Don’t fight aging — embrace it! You can’t stop the aging process, no matter how hard you try. Think of this new era as an exciting opportunity, not a nuisance, and you’re practically guaranteed to enjoy life even more.

Stay active. Regular exercise is so beneficial for life after 50. It can help you manage your weight, your blood pressure and cholesterol, and even your mood (hello, endorphins!), and keeps your muscles, bones, and joints working at their best. We’re not saying you need to start running marathons; low-impact exercise like walking, swimming, yoga, or strength training is great too. Find an activity you love and stick with it.

Eat a healthy diet. You’re well aware of the benefits of a healthy diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables, calcium, protein, and fiber. As you age, make sure you’re eating right — your body will thank you.

Manage stress. Stress happens, and as you age, you may find yourself worrying about things like your future, retirement, health, and finances. Find a way to reduce stress that works for you, whether it’s meditation, exercise, regular massages or spa treatments, or time with a friend or loved one.

Change up your multivitamin. Once you pass 50, you may require more of certain vitamins and minerals and less of others to help you live life to the fullest, just as you have in the past. Is a 50+ multivitamin really much different from the formulas you were previously taking? It is! These ingredients and formulas will help you thrive as your needs start to change.

Health concerns can change as you age like supporting bones, muscle and eye function, memory and mental sharpness, and joints.* Alive!® Multivitamins for adults 50+ are formulated and balanced for your unique needs.

For example, Alive!® Women’s 50+ Tablets contain added boron, but don’t have iron, as it’s not typically needed by post-menopausal women.* For men, we add lycopene and lutein to our Men’s 50+ Premium Gummy and 50+ Tablets.
