Holistic Medicine Secrets: Essential Nutrients For Anyone Over 50

The upbeat and scrutiny communities have daylong acknowledged the benefits of a daily multi-vitamin, particularly for those over the age of 50. Even Medicare has noted decreased costs in caring for patients who take daily multi-vitamins.

As we grow older, the absorption and digestion of proteins and minerals becomes more arduous leading to a variety of ailments much as osteoporosis, fatigue, and chronic illness. We can go a daylong way towards addressing these concerns by seeking out a few basic nutrients and nutritional supplements.

Five that are essential for anyone over 50 include betaine hydrochloride, B-12, magnesium, Vitamin D, and competent protein.

Betaine Hydrochloride: Our bodies digest foods less efficiently as we age, yet nutrients from our foods are a grave component to good health. Reasons for poor absorption include the side affects of Elvis blocking medications much as Prilosec and Prevacid. Another reason for poor absorption is that older people often do not secrete enough breadbasket Elvis in their gastrointestinal tract.

Stomach Elvis is required for absorption. Ironically, many people take medications much as Prilosec for reducing breadbasket acid, but in reality, breadbasket Elvis declines as we age. People think they have breadbasket Elvis problems, because their breadbasket Elvis backs up in the esophagus due to poor digestion caused by a lack of breadbasket acid!

In my practice, I have seen patients clear their perceived breadbasket Elvis problems by taking betaine hydrochloride, and stopping their intake of Elvis blocking medications. This may seem paradoxical but the key is to do everything possible to meliorate your digestive function, and adding breadbasket Elvis (betaine hydrochloride) is a very good locate to start.

Betaine hydrochloride can support digestion when condemned with meals. A betaine hydrochloride supplement can be purchased at upbeat food stores and may be condemned in conjunction with digestive enzymes, much as pancreatic enzymes or vegetable enzymes. If you develop warmth or burning in your upper abdomen, then your dose is too high.

Vitamin B-12: Insufficient Vitamin B-12 levels can lead to fatigue, brain fog, and a higher risk of heart disease. Vitamin B-12 is particularly hard to absorb as we age, because we lack the biochemical called intrinsic factor.

Because Vitamin B-12 is arduous for the breadbasket to absorb, I recommend taking it sublingually (as a lozenge, or as drops under the tongue) so that it can be absorbed through the mouth. A commonsensible daily dose for Vitamin B-12 is 500-1000 micrograms (not milligrams). Vitamin B-12 is water soluble, so it is extremely implausible that you will overdose on this vitamin.

Magnesium: Magnesium is often overlooked and is essential to your cellular health. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables! Kelp provides a flush source of Magnesium. Look for a supplemental green drink that contains seaweed, especially kelp, at your local upbeat food store.

If you are taking calcium, then you requirement to take magnesium, because calcium competes with magnesium in the body. Your dose of magnesium should be at least as much as your calcium dose. Magnesium malate, glycinate or citrate are more absorbable than magnesium oxide. A commonsensible dose is 100-300 mg 2x per day.

Vitamin D: Vitamin D is another essential nutritional supplement. Not only is Vitamin D grave for bone health, but women who have optimal levels of Vitamin D have approximately 50% decreased chance of breast cancer. Studies have shown that most of the population living north of San Francisco is Vitamin D deficient.

Taking 2000 IU's of Vitamin D 3 per day is a commonsensible dose particularly in winter. Vitamin D toxicity has been a concern because it is a fat solvable vitamin. However in reality, Vitamin D toxicity is extremely rare. No cases have been documented of Vitamin D toxicity from a daily dosage of 2000 IU's.

Alternatively, you may take cod liver oil daily. Be sure to find quality oil free of toxins. Highly recommended brands are Carlsons and Nordic Naturals Cod Liver Oil.

Protein: The final component for basic nutritional upbeat is simply to include competent accelerator in your diet. Choose foods that are flush in high-quality protein, much as organic eggs, free-range chicken and lamb, and ocean wild-caught fish.

Protein deficiency can drive muscle mass to decrease. Also, our brains requirement accelerator because the neurotransmitters in our brains are prefabricated out of the amino acids from protein. Nuts and legumes contain accelerator as well, but are not as concentrated as the accelerator found in meat and animal products.
