About the supplement
Managing your Overall Health & Wellbeing
Diet & Nutrition studies have shown that the vast majority of middle aged and older adults fail to get sufficient quantities (the RDA) of many micronutrients such as vitamins, minerals and omega 3. Low levels of these key nutrients can give rise to ailments and even disease later in life, hence the benefit of supplemention as we age.
Public Health England carry out National Diet & Nutrition studies on a regular basis and data from these studies show that older adults are failing to reach the RDA (daily target) across many micronutrients. The worst example is vitamin D where over 90% fail to reach even the RDA from food alone, whilst many of these people also fail to make enough Vitamin D in their skin from sunlight, due to the slower speed of synthesis, caused by the ageing metabolism.
B12 is another key vitamin which is absorbed poorly due to low stomach acid and also by many meds which tend to inhibit B12 absorption too.
But more recent studies also show that many other nutrients are low in our diet such as Magnesium, Zinc, Copper, Folic acid, Iodine, Biotin, Vitamin E and even Vitamin C. Furthermore, older adults do not absorb nutrients as well as when they were younger, making nutrient deficiencies even more important to correct via sensible supplementation, but not with single nutrients but rather, well designed multi-nutrient formulations that have been designed specifically to cater to this age group.
Another important nutrient that is only consumed to around a third of the recommended daily target, is ultra-healthy Omega 3 fatty acids that are found in oily fish, such as DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid).These two omega 3’s are essential nutrients needed for the health of the brain, the heart and also the eyes, so ensuring adequate omega 3 intake is key. These omega’s also play an anti-inflammatory role throughout the body too.
The third area of health that is frequently in need of some help is the gut. Many older adults suffer from gut issues caused by ‘dysbiosis’, where the balance of ‘good’ vs ‘bad’ bacteria in the colon becomes a problem, resulting in constipation, bloating, pain and sometimes diarrhoea .Furthermore, antibiotics while dealing with an infection, can also cause gut dysbiosis. This is where the regular supplementation of a multi-strain probiotic can help re-balance the gut, which can also alleviate many of the issues brought about by the dysbiosis.
