Nutrition For Your Prime Years – 50s Are The New 30s

Nutrition intake becomes vital the older you are. After the age of 45, your body starts to show signs of aging – loss of muscle mass, aching joints after physical activities, thinner skin and digestive problems. To maintain a healthy and dynamic lifestyle even at your prime, it might be necessary to supplement your diet.

Growing up, you may have noticed these signs of aging in your parents or grandparents and watched them become more stagnant as they grow older. Older adults tend to consume less calories due to multiple reasons, such as poorer appetite, slower digestive system or weaker teeth. It becomes difficult for them to obtain all the necessary nutrients (proteins, fibre, vitamins and minerals) in the right amount. 

But this does not have to be your reality. The years after you hit 40 should be yours to live and enjoy! The secret to maintaining your youth and health lies in something as basic as your nutrition. Being mentally fit and young would be of no use if your physical health starts to fail you. Medical science has come far with supplements and getting the right nutrition for your age is no longer difficult nor expensive.

Why Is It Good To Consider Nutritional Supplements In Your Diet?

It is important that despite the fewer caloric intake, your food remains nutritionally-dense or packed with the right levels of essential nutrients – proteins, fibre, vitamins and minerals to counter the problems that come with age.

However, with physiological changes happening in the body due to aging, it can be hard to hit your nutritional quota through table meals alone. Hence, using supplements that are packed with necessary nutrients can be extremely beneficial, like the BOOST™ Optimum!

BOOST™ Optimum is a nutritional supplement specifically formulated with your body’s changing nutrition needs in mind. It provides 3 main nutrients in each serving.

  • 10.2g of Proteins for muscles

Proteins are especially important for adults over the age of 45. They not only help with muscle growth and maintaining physical strength, but they also help with the production of antibodies to fight illness. BOOST™ Optimum is also made using high-quality Whey protein that is easily absorbed by the body.

  • 550 Million Units of Probiotics L paracasei and 3.1g of prebiotic fibre for digestive system

Probiotics are beneficial gut bacteria to improve the digestive system and help fight against harmful bacteria that can cause infections while prebiotic fibres are food for these beneficial bacteria to feed on and remain active.

  • 27 vitamins and minerals for an overall healthy bodily function

Various vitamins and minerals in the supplement to help with bone health, energy metabolism and to provide antioxidants for the immune system.

Use a nutritional supplement as a fuel to keep your body active by exercising to keep yourself mobile and fit. You can even try simple at home workouts with light weights to encourage muscle growth and minimize internal wear and tear on top of boosting your nutrition. With the right combination of nutrition and exercises, getting old will no longer be a source of worry or fear and each year of birthday will indeed be a moment to celebrate.
