All Prime Fifty products have all been specifically formulated to meet the needs of the over 50’s. This means that they are tailored products based on evidence based science and knowledge of health and nutrition.
Firstly we have examined a range of diet and nutrition studies across the world, in which nutrient intakes have been measured. The data from these studies shows that many people do not reach the recommended intake of some key nutrients, as part of their diet.
Secondly, there is a huge amount of good science in the scientific literature, basically proposing that ‘optimal’ intakes of some key nutrients, are considerably higher than what is suggested in the simple RDA (recommended daily intake) recommendations. Looking across both deficiencies and also optimal intakes, Prime Fifty have formulated all their products to take account of these scientific facts and data.
Thirdly, where we use some key minerals, we have used special, highly soluble minerals to help with mineral absorption, which can be less efficient in the ageing gut. In addition we have used a patented ingredient called Bioperine, which has been proven to aid absorption of certain vitamins and minerals, so ensuring maximum uptake.
Also, in the muscle maintenance powder, we have formulated this with added lactase which helps with lactose digestion (which tends to be more difficult with age).
