Top Supplements for Aging Smart
Healthy ageing can be described as the process of developing and maintaining well-being as you age. It is about improving the quality of life as you advance in years. The concept of healthy ageing is something that we tend to think about after the age of 50 but this timeline is shifting. Younger generations are now concerned with healthy ageing, even as young as millennials. The reasons for the shift may be due to younger generations
living more health-conscious lifestyles or because they’re bearing witness to the increased incidences of age-related illnesses in their families. The National Council on Ageing reported that 80% of adults aged 65 or older have at least one chronic age-related disease. Hypertension was the leading chronic condition, followed by High Cholesterol, Arthritis, Coronary Heart Disease, Alzheimer's, Dementia, Age-related eye disorders and Depression. This drive for prevention and better health through the ageing timelines has led consumers to source out ways to “Age Smarter” through exercise, better-balanced meals, stress reduction and utilizing nutritional supplements, especially supplements that are condition specific. The strange thing about getting older is that it’s also the time when you need nutrients the most to help ensure a healthy path to ageing. It is also the time when assimilation and absorption of vitamins and minerals from your food starts to slow down. So too do the metabolic processes and the body’s natural stores of much-needed nutrients such as calcium, magnesium and vitamin D, which are needed to help prevent osteoporosis and support the bones around arthritic knees and joints. Other vitamins that become depleted include B12, B6 and Folic acid, which support a healthy heart. Even the production of CoQ10 which is required for heart, brain and energy functions, decreases with age.
