Best Supplements for People Over 60

Everybody ages, that’s a fact. Whether you’re in your 60’s or you’re on your way there, you’re probably noticing of all the changes occurring in your life. Not only does your work, social life and health and fitness change, but so does your dietary requirements. It’s important to grow and change with these things so you’re cultivating a healthy body and mind for many years to come.

As we age, vitamins and minerals in our bodies begin to deplete. When we lose certain nutrients, our bodies start feeling the effects and the symptoms can be extremely frustrating. Although this part of ageing is normal, there are things we can do to help. Incorporating the right supplements into your routine can be a simple way to make sure your body is getting everything it needs. Unsure of which ones you should be taking? We’re here to help! Here are the top 5 supplements you should be taking in your 60’s.

Vitamin D

Our main source of vitamin D comes from the sun! However, the body's ability to synthesis vitamin D from sunlight declines as we age. Don’t let this stop you from enjoying a walk on a nice sunny afternoon though. Just make sure when you get home, you’re securing your vitamin D with a supplement. Research has shown that vitamin D can help with chronic pain, safeguard you from heart disease and even prevent cancer. 

If you’re not getting enough vitamin D, you can begin to experience tiredness and fatigue, back pain, frequent colds and even depression. The team at Caruso's Natural Health have developed a vitamin D supplement designed to help you avoid these nasty symptoms and get your vitamin D. So, if you’re 60’s are creeping up on you or you’re already there, don’t stress! It’s never too late to cultivate a healthy body.

Omega 3

DHA is a type of omega-3 fat and is crucial in keeping a happy and healthy brain. It has been linked to mood enhancement and improvement of memory. As you age, your brain cells gradually lose the ability to absorb DHA, which can impact memory retention and overall brain function. This is why taking an omega 3 supplement can be extremely beneficial. Studies have shown that people who take omega-3 supplements are diagnosed with less cardiovascular disease, eye disease and even dementia.

Amongst incorporating a supplement into your routine, you can also eat more omega-3 rich foods. Some of these include fatty fish like salmon, tuna and mackerel as well as plant-based options like nuts and seeds (chia, walnuts and flaxseed).

Potassium

You probably don’t think about how much potassium you’re getting in each day, but it’s something you should keep in mind! Potassium is used in your body every single day to regulate your body chemistry. When you’re not receiving enough potassium, you can experience issues with blood pressure and can even develop kidney stones. As you age, your potassium levels can deplete, especially if you are taking medications that regulate high blood pressure, as these can excrete the mineral from your body. In addition to a supplement, you can find potassium in foods such as chia seeds, bananas, oranges and cooked spinach.

Vitamin B6 and B12

The B vitamins are extremely important to the overall functioning of the body. From metabolism and immunity to memory, mood and transporting oxygen to your red blood cells, these vitamins are crucial in our survival. When you get older, your body actually needs more of these B vitamins. As we’ve discovered, the body struggles to absorb certain nutrients as good as it used to, so we have to give it a helping hand.

Those who suffer from vitamin B deficiencies and don’t fix them have a higher risk of developing cancer, diabetes, heart disease and overall have a weaker immune system than the average person. If you want to make sure you’re doing everything you can to prevent illness in the future, adding a vitamin B supplement into your routine could be a great place to start.

Magnesium

Magnesium is involved in many processes throughout the body. Forming and maintaining bones, building muscle and regulating your blood sugar levels throughout the day. It is known for reducing inflammation, regulating mood, helping prevent or lessen the severity of migraines; the list goes on.

Magnesium can be a great supplement for people in their 60’s as it’s extremely important to maintain the health of your bones and muscles. A common issue that older people experience is joint aches and pains. Magnesium is often recommended as it helps maintain joint cartilage and the proper function of nerves and muscles.

It’s never too late to improve your health and wellbeing. Just one simple addition to your routine can make the world of a difference. With a healthy and balanced diet, incorporating supplements into your regime is a great way to make sure you’re giving your body everything it needs to stay strong, healthy and happy.
