Nutritional Supplements: Supplements for Seniors

Retirees may have plenty of free time to cook, but many don’t have the energy or appetite to prepare and eat a full meal.This makes nutritional supplements important for those around the age of retirement, since maintaining your health in your later years can be a challenge. Senior health supplements can refer to pills, powders, extracts, oils, or gel tabs and may contain vitamins, minerals, fibers, or other nutrients. The best way to begin taking senior health supplements if you haven’t before is to talk to your doctor about which nutrients you’re currently lacking. Your doctor will likely recommend the best sources of these nutrients and how often to take them. It is also a good idea to talk to your pharmacist about potential interactions between the medications you take and senior health supplements you may introduce to your diet.

There are several nutrients found in senior health supplements that people over the age of 50 tend to need more than younger adults. Calcium works to keep your bones strong, which is vital in preventing osteoporosis, falls, and fractures. It is normally found in milk, canned fish with soft bones, cereals with calcium added, and dark-green leafy vegetables, such as kale. Vitamin D also works to keep your bones healthy. Usually vitamin D has to be added to foods in order for them to be a good source of the vitamin, such as vitamin D-fortified milk, milk products, and cereals; however, vitamin D is found naturally in fatty fish. Vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 help to form and maintain red blood cells, which helps those over 50 avoid anemia, neuropathy, and cognitive impairment. Seniors are especially susceptible to low B12 values because as people get older, their ability to absorb B12 decreases. This is because stomach enzymes process vitamin B12. Senior health supplements can compliment your diet if you don’t eat many foods that naturally contain the nutrients you need.

According to the U.S. government’s National Institute on Aging, people over age 50 should consume 2.4 micrograms of B12, 600 international units of vitamin D, and around 1.6 milligrams of vitamin B6 per day. Women over 50 need 1200 milligrams of calcium each day, while men need 1000. While you may have consumed more than enough of these nutrients in regular meals while you were young, several factors prevent seniors from getting enough of these nutrients. These factors include physical difficulties of chewing and swallowing, fatigue and lack of motivation to cook, and forgetting to eat meals regularly throughout the day. This is where senior health supplements come in. Liquid senior health supplements are an especially attractive option to those who don’t want to cook or have difficulty swallowing solid foods. You may be familiar with drinks like Boost Glucose Control and Ensure that work as meal replacements, but there are other brands available as well. Some senior health supplements are formulated especially for diabetics.
