Vitamins & Minerals For Seniors

As we grow older it is important that we eat well and use good supplements. As we age our bodies change and they often become less efficient at assimilating the nutrients in the foods we eat.

What you can do to help

Supplements for seniors

Take a good multivitamin and mineral supplement, with extra antioxidants (vitamins A, C, E and the mineral selenium) to slow down the aging process.

Antioxidants can help prevent arthritis, cancer, dementia, heart disease, and adult onset diabetes.

Take vitamin B complex with constituents in the range of 25 to 50 mg, twice a day.
