Supplements for People Over Age 50

As we age, our food habits can change. We might become more intolerant of certain foods, or develop digestion issues or simply different preferences. These changes can impact whether we are getting the proper amount of nutrients from our food, or if we need to supplement in certain areas to maintain a healthy body.

Here are our suggestions on supplements for people over the age of 50:

Vitamin B-12
Offered at Integrated Health in a sublingual tablet and in liquid form.

Vitamin B-12 is found in fish, shellfish, meat and dairy products. Some people find these foods difficult to digest as they age, and thus, may not be finding enough Vitamin B-12 in food choices. A deficiency in Vitamin B-12 can lead to anemia, Chron's or Celiac disease, Gastritis and more. Vitamin B-12 is stored in the liver. There is an easy blood test to help determine your Vitamin B-12 levels if you don't wish to account for it by reviewing your diet.

Calcium
Offered at Integrated Health in tablet, capsules and liquid form.

Calcium is about keeping bones strong, something that becomes important as you age. Strong bones in your 50s help provide longer opportunities for independence in your 70s and 80s. With falls being a major source of ailments among seniors, being able to prevent falls with healthy bone density is something you can work on early.

Vitamin D
Offered at Integrated Health in tablet, capsule and liquid form.

People absorb Vitamin D from the sun, and staying out of the sun is often recommended for people as they age. If you are not getting Vitamin D from the sun, you may need to use a supplement to ensure your levels are appropriate. Vitamin D helps absorb Calcium, which we know is important for bones and strength, but which is also important for muscle function.
