Studies show that even with a well balanced diet of nutrient and mineral rich food, many people suffer from nutrient deficiencies. Consequently, these deficiencies worsen with age. Luckily, there are products available to supplement healthy diets, and boost body function.
Here are the top picks to add to your daily routine for optimum health over forty:
Omega-3s - will help counteract negative changes from aging, lower cholesterol levels and improve heart and mental health. Also reduce inflammation, reduce cancer risk and improve joint and bone health. Fish oil is high in omega-3 fatty acids, and is a wonderful supplement. The following foods are also high in omega-3s: Egg yolks, chia seeds, flaxseeds, Alaskan salmon, albacore tuna, and walnuts.
Vitamin E - is rich in antioxidants and prevents free radical damage. Vitamin E is a miracle worker for damaged and aging skin, and extremely moisturizing for face and nails. Plus, it can help balance hormones, strengthen hair, reduce cancer risk and balance cholesterol.
Vitamin B12 - is the most common nutrient deficiency in today's society. The common signs for vitamin B12 deficiencies are chronic fatigue, joint and muscle pain, poor memory and mood swings. Also, as the body ages, it becomes harder to absorb so it may be time for supplemental help. B12 elevates energy and promotes normal blood and brain function. It also aids in digestion.
Calcium - combats osteoporosis, heart disease, diabetes and cancer. However, studies show most adults don't get enough calcium daily. Calcium is important to reduce fracture risk and support bone health, while regulating blood pressure and cholesterol.
Valerian / Melatonin / Magnesium - Having trouble sleeping or never feel fully rested? These three options could be just want you need. They are sleep aids, reduce anxiety, ease cramps and lowers blood pressure.
Probiotics - promote a healthy gut and help manage weight. Aiding your digestive system with gut flora will promote the body's ability to absorb nutrients and necessary minerals while strengthening immune function. It is suggested to choose a daily probiotic with at least 15 billion cultures to boost overall digestive health.
