Why food supplements for seniors?
Our body does not always remain the same. Already from the age of 10, the elasticity of the eye lens decreases. At 20, the hair cells in the cochlea become fewer and it becomes increasingly difficult to hear high-pitched sounds. The production of the alveoli decreases, the breathing volume becomes smaller and this means less oxygen in the blood.
A very important sign is declining fertility, which becomes noticeable in both women and men from the age of 25. Due to the decreasing hyaluronic acid in the skin, the first wrinkles appear.
At 30, the decreasing water content becomes a problem and this affects the elasticity of the cartilage. From this age onwards, the intervertebral discs must also become thinner and thinner.
The first grey hairs from the age of 35 are a clear sign of the ageing process. From this age onwards, hardly any calcium is stored and the bone mass continuously decreases.
We observe an age-related decline in the synthesis of glutathione, especially after the age of 40, when the body's glutathione level begins to drop. If the basic building blocks for the formation of this versatile antioxidant are missing, we are threatened with a faster ageing process.
Vitamin D as a food supplement for seniors
In the following years, especially at 50, the need for vitamin D increases. This is a very important vitamin that helps in the absorption of calcium and phosphate, thus preventing bone softening. Especially older people who spend a lot of time indoors and often do not get enough sunlight suffer the consequences of vitamin D deficiency.
Even though the ageing process starts much earlier, in our society we speak of older people from the age of 65. In addition to vitamin D requirements, seniors should also cover their needs for vitamin B12, zinc, calcium, vitamin B6, folic acid and protein in consultation with their family doctor.
