Reason why most dogs (and people) waste in old age is due to the fact that digestion is getting less and less effective and it's harder to get nutrients from food, especially proteins which are really hard to digest in general.
Aminoacids are building blocks of proteins, in these supplements they've been "pre-digested" so they don't require digestion and are just absorbed in the gut.
This can be beneficial for old dogs, since literally everything in our bodies is built from protein and aminoacids are extremely important nutrients, which might be lacking in old age, due to bad digestion of proteins.
I would definitely recommend supplementing your dog with some amino-acid complex.
