As you age, your body’s metabolism changes from optimal in youth to good in middle age to rapidly declining in old age. Your vitamin and mineral needs also change from minimal, to moderate, to critical. The good news is that if you keep the amounts of vitamins and minerals within your body at levels associated with youth and vigor, you can experience youthfulness into your elderly years.
It has been demonstrated that even if you have begun to slip into the chronic disease patterns of aging, it is possible, to a very large degree, to reverse the process with proper nutrition. What better reasons could you find to supplement your diet?
When you age, you generally decrease your physical activity and metabolism. Unless caloric intake is also decreased, the end result is obesity, which in itself increases the risk to cancer, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, diabetes, etc. With reduced caloric intake, supplementation is vital in order for you to get adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals with the decreased amount of food. This becomes even more important when, according to the latest scientific literature, you can’t get the recommended daily amounts (RDAs) of many essential nutrients at normal caloric intake levels.
To address these problems, I have established a basic vitamin and mineral supplemental program that I feel offers optimal support for various age groups based on what is known about decreased metabolism and increased micro-nutrient needs. Some people with increased vitamin and mineral needs brought about by chronic illness require additional amounts of very specific nutrients added to this basic program. However, people of average health do very well on a good basic supplemental program, with emphasis on anti-oxidants (anti-aging vitamins) like Vitamin C and Vitamin E, such as that found in the Basic Self-Help Supplement Program chart.
The scientific literature is emphasizing that as we get older, we need continually increasing amounts of virtually all of the essential micronutrients. This area of research is now called anti-aging medicine. It is getting a lot of attention because so much can be done inexpensively to produce remarkable results, and you the public, are demanding it.
Every person, all the events of your life are there because you have drawn them there. What you choose to do with them is up to you.
