‘The Age Factor’ on the Campaign Trail

October 30, 2008

SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ — Political pundits studying the Presidential candidates’ every move on the campaign trail may ponder the impact of “the age factor,” but seniors say sore joints won’t keep America’s aging population on the sidelines, according to a recent survey of men and women age 50+ from Schiff Nutrition International, makers of Move Free(R) Advanced, a daily dietary supplement for joint health that starts comforting sore joints in less than seven days.(1) In fact, these mature adults report they are more determined than ever to make staying active a part of their daily wellness routine.

Americans 50 and older are determined to outpace their advancing years, the Move Free(R) Advanced Make Your Move…with Freedom online survey(2) found. Though 69 percent of this age group say they experience body aches and discomfort at least weekly, and 59 percent say they suffer joint discomfort just as frequently, older Americans are defying these issues on a daily basis with a can-do attitude and a strong ethic of staying active and involved.

Staying Active – Their Primary Concern

Despite the frequency with which they experience aches and discomfort, Americans 50 and over responded that they worry more about not being able to keep doing the things they want to do (62%) than about dealing with increasing physical discomfort as they age (48%). Even in today’s uncertain economy, they report that they are more concerned about continuing to do the things they love than being able to afford a comfortable lifestyle (54%) or proper healthcare (48%) as they get older.

True Grit

Among surveyed Americans 50 and older who have experienced joint discomfort, 59 percent say it has rarely interfered with their quality of life or their ability to be productive. More men make this claim than women (64% vs. 55%). And when joint discomfort does interfere with their lives, nearly four in ten (39%) of those who experience it say their first reaction is a gritty resolve to persevere.

From Senator John McCain to the average citizen, America’s mature population shows a special determination not to give up important parts of their lives as they age. Among those surveyed, these include family activities (77%), doing chores and gardening around the home (71%) and continuing to go to work (43%).

In Red States and Blue, Supplements Win

When it comes to aging gracefully, the respondents in the Make Your Move…with Freedom online survey vote for supplements so they can continue to live healthy and full lives, particularly as a way to manage their joint discomfort. They reported that taking vitamin supplements is the one preferred way of managing joint discomfort among those who deal with it.

Glucosamine plus Chondroitin is cited as the top choice for older Americans in the survey with joint discomfort who have tried natural remedies (66%); fish oil comes in second (56%).

How Move Free(R) Advanced is Different

Move Free(R) Advanced is the joint care supplement that combines Glucosamine and Chondroitin with two ingredients – Uniflex(R) and Joint Fluid. Uniflex(R) protects your joints; Joint Fluid replenishes your joints, and Glucosamine and Chondroitin help to rebuild your joints. Move Free(R) Advanced starts comforting sore joints in less than seven days(1) vs. 4 to 6 weeks for Glucosamine and Chondroitin alone. And Move Free Advanced has been clinically tested.
