Which People over 60 Need a High Quality MultiVitamin? These people:
- Almost everyone over 60. Why? We don’t always realize it, but the amount of food we eat decreases with age. So nutrient intake goes down too. At the same time, both men and women experience an ongoing decrease in bone density.
- People over 60 trying to lose weight. Virtually every weight loss study requires participants to take a multivitamin while on the study.
- People over 60 trying to stay healthy. Vitamins and minerals play amazing and vital roles in maintaining good health. A good quality multivitamin is a like an insurance policy, helping make sure we get everything we need everyday.
- People over 60 who are on medications. Medications can affect absorption of certain vitamins and minerals.
- People over 60 who have trouble with milk and dairy products. Many over 60 consume less milk and other dairy products – primary dietary sources of calcium and Vitamin D which in turn are key to bone health.
- People over 60 on a heart-healthy diet. Restricting saturated fats and oils, which can limit intake of B12, zinc and iron.
What you can miss when:
- Almost everyone over 60. Why? Some of the reasons we eat less are: taste changes, sometimes from medications; decreased appetite, sometimes from decreased activity. In our 70s, there can be other reasons we eat less.
- People over 60 trying to lose weight...cut back on meat in their diet, to avoid fat. That results in less iron intake, and potentially iron deficiency anemia. Similarly, diets often cut back on carbohydrates, and that can lead to lowered intake of B-complex vitamins -- thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, B6 and B12.
- People over 60 trying to stay healthy. It’s just too easy to miss out on Vitamin D, Calcium, Iron, Folic Acid, and more.
- People over 60 who are on medications. For example, drugs for heartburn, ulcers, and acid reflux can reduce stomach acid, which can then reduce absorption of both iron and Vitamin B-12. Antacids and Coumadin can also reduce iron.
- People over 60 who have trouble with milk and dairy products. Bone health. It’s a concern for all people over 60, but even more so if you are lactose intolerant. Get the calcium and Vitamin D (plus Magnesium) with a combination of OPURITY® China-Free Multivitamins, and OPURITY® China◆Free™ Calcium Citrate Plus.
- People over 60 on a heart-healthy diet. Because of the restrictions of these diets, a high-quality multivitamin is a wise choice to help insure against possible deficiencies.
