Nutrition intake becomes vital the older you are. After the age of 45, your body starts to show signs of aging – loss of muscle mass, aching joints after physical activities, thinner skin and digestive problems.
Older adults tend to consume less calories due to multiple reasons, such as poorer appetite, slower digestive system or weaker teeth. It becomes difficult for them to obtain all the necessary nutrients (proteins, fibre, vitamins and minerals) in the right amount. But this does not have to be your reality. The years after you hit 40 should be yours to live and enjoy! The secret to maintaining your youth and health lies in something as basic as your nutrition. Medical science has come far with supplements and getting the right nutrition for your age is no longer difficult nor expensive.
Why Is It Good To Consider Nutritional Supplements In Your Diet?
It is important that despite the fewer caloric intake, your food remains nutritionally-dense or packed with the right levels of essential nutrients – proteins, fibre, vitamins and minerals to counter the problems that come with age.
However, with physiological changes happening in the body due to aging, it can be hard to hit your nutritional quota through table meals alone. Hence, using supplements that are packed with necessary nutrients can be extremely beneficial, like the BOOST™ Optimum!
