Vitamins For Seniors
Vitamins for seniors are important because seniors are often vitamin deficient. The older you get, the more your body loses it’s ability to absorb vitamins and make its own vitamins as well. The result is a slow decline of vital nutrients. Supplements support healthy joints, macular health, energy levels, and cellular health. Scientific studies show a direct relationship between vitamin deficiency and chronic diseases. Vitamins for seniors can be the bridge to a healthy and active lifestyle.
The most common vitamins that seniors lack is Iron and Calcium. These are the most important and basic supplements all aging seniors should be taking daily. Next is a combination of vitamins and minerals that help with eyesight, joint support, energy, and protect against heart disease and cancer. Vitamins for seniors can help immensely if you take the right ones.
As we age our bones lose calcium and they become brittle. This is known as osteoporosis. Calcium supplements can increase the bone density and reverse the effects of osteoporosis. Calcium needs Vitamin D3 to help it get absorbed by your body, so it’s important to take vitamin D3 with Calcium to ensure proper absorption. As we age we lose the ability to make vitamin D3 and that contributes to calcium deficiency and weak bones.
Iron is needed to carry oxygen to all of the cells in your body. Low levels of iron makes you feel tired all the time and leads to anemia. No matter how much sleep you get, you never feel fully awake and energetic. Iron deficiency is often undetected because most people think that losing energy is just part of the aging process. Hog-Wash! Taking an iron supplement every day can be the difference between energy and lethargy.
A good multi-vitamin for seniors has been described as a good insurance policy. It’s nice to know that you are not deficient in any vitamins or minerals. But two questions remain:
Where Can I Get Quality Vitamins?
What Vitamins Do I Take?
Glad you asked! First, you must realize that most vitamins are worthless. Read the label and you’ll see. Then compare it to one of the vitamins from Douglas Labs, which produces pharmaceutical grade vitamins and supplements. For more facts about vitamins see my Douglas Labs Page.
