Getting older can come with its battles, but the good news is that we can now take a more proactive approach towards maintaining our health and wellness.
It's important to recognise, understand, and notice how our nutritional needs may change throughout our life cycle. As we age, we may need to rely on different vitamins, minerals and supplements to support optimal health and wellness.
Why Do Men & Women Over 50 Need Supplements?
As we age, it becomes more difficult to receive and maintain the levels of nutrition that our body needs. Certain tablets and medications that seniors have to take can inhibit the process of absorbing and utilising nutrients, which is where multivitamins and supplements come in.
Our Top 5 Multivitamin Supplements for those Over 50
There’s a range of multivitamins and supplements that seniors can benefit from taking. From joint health to brain health supplements, here are our top 5 multivitamin supplements for seniors.
Joint & Bone Health Supplements
Support mobility and comfort as you age with our range of joint supplements. Omega 3 supplements are a great option as omega 3 fatty acids are known to benefit your joints, in addition to supporting your heart, skin, and metabolic health too.*
Vitamin D is another great supplement to help support healthy bones. As your bones play an important role in movement and protecting vital organs from external damage, take care of your bones as you age with vitamin D supplements. As the sun is our main source of vitamin D, it's even more important for seniors who don't get outside often to boost their vitamin D levels with a multivitamin or tailored vitamin D supplement.
Brain Health Supplements
Many adults have concerns related to their brain health. It’s especially important for seniors to eat a healthy, balanced diet that provides all of the essential nutrients required for optimal brain health but may want to consider taking brain health supplements for added nutritional assurance.
Our Neuro-PS Gold tablets are designed to support your brain health and a healthy mind.* These supplements contain Ginkgo Biloba, which is known to have an effect on cognitive functions and has been studied for its effect on mood and stress.
Alternatively, you can try our Gingko Biloba caplets. Made from the highest-quality herbs, rest assured that you'll get the best out of every dose and get the supplemental nutrition you need to support a healthy brain function.
Collagen is the major structural component of the skin, comprising about 80% of its dry weight. With age, our production of collagen starts to decline and may result in visible signs of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles.
Our Collagen 1000mg supplements and Women's Multivitamin Collagen Gummies contain an absorbable form of collagen to support healthy skin ageing and elasticity.*
The collagen tablets contain added vitamin C, which contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin and cartilage, while the multivitamin gummies contain biotin, an essential B vitamin that contributes to the maintenance of normal hair and skin.
Vitamin B12 Supplements
While consumption of vitamins and minerals are important for everyone, older people in particular may have difficulty absorbing the nutrients that support key biological processes.
Vitamin B12 aids the body in converting food into energy, while also supporting heart and nervous system health.*
Vitamin B12 may not be readily absorbable by the digestive system as we age, so it’s recommended that adults over 50 get most of their B12 intake from fortified foods and nutritional supplements, like our B-Complex multivitamins and 1000mg B12 tablets.
Multivitamins for Seniors
To boost your overall health and wellbeing, why not try an all-in-one multivitamin for over 50s. Our Mega Vita Min™ for Seniors has been specifically designed for maturing adults and combines a wide variety vitamins and minerals with a range of herbs and other ingredients to support seniors.
This multivitamin has been crafted to provide the nutritional support you need to live life to the max. It contains essential vitamin A to support your eye health, as vitamin A contributes to the maintenance of normal vision, while magnesium has been added to support a clear mind, as magnesium contributes to normal psychological function.
It also contains vitamin C to support immune health, along with a wealth of other carefully chosen ingredients to support the wellbeing needs of maturing adults.
