Most evidence measuring functionality in elderly persons have not found any improvement with DHEA supplementation, although it is possible that DHEA may play a role
Somewhat of an increase in functionality of elderly persons, most likely secondary to the beneficial effects on joint health.
Possibly an effect, but the less reliable effects of creatine in the older population (which seem to respond less) seems to manifest here.
No significant influence has been noted on functional tests in elderly persons given nitrate supplementation
Grip strength has been found to be increased in elderly persons associated with supplementation at low doses
An improvement in muscular and neural functionality in the elderly is thought to underlie the reductions of fall risk and reduced bone fracture rate seen in elderly cohorts
The increase in functionality appears to be secondary to reductions in symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis
An improvement in balance has been noted with vinpocetine ingestion in the elderly, which may be related to the attenuation of cognitive decline
