Re: What supplements are you taking?

Actually, today’s mass market produce contains significantly less vitamins and antioxidants than decades ago, due to farming practices.

Some individuals are chronically deficient, despite attempting to eat “healthy”.

@bikerbabe Well said.  I am naturally deficient in Iron so I must take a supplement.  I also take a daily vitamin, C , zinc and fiber.

Re: What supplements are you taking?

@Kachina624 wow...are you ok? Perhaps you are not feeling well? You have been even more harsh than usual the past couple days. 

 

Asking what supplements people take on an anonymous message board is not being nosy. It can be inspiring to someone who may not be aware of a supplement so they ask. Its educational No different than asking who wears jean jackets, dangle earrings or ever tried delivery grocery shopping.what harm can be done with such info. Not asking if people have psychological problems or how much money they have.

 

Cheese and crackers! Feel better soon.

Re: What supplements are you taking?

From Sonata Senior Living:

“Older adults are at higher risk for developing nutrient deficiencies due to a low dietary intake or impairment in absorption of nutrients in the body. Due to changes in the digestive system, as we age, it becomes more difficult for the body to break down and absorb nutrients from food.”

 

I tend to have nutritional deficiencies even though I eat a healthy diet. I take a multi, Bone-Up (supplement for bone health), magnesium, extra B vitamins including B12, D3 and others as needed.

I started taking a multi because of this study and after looking into longevity more:

 

A neuroscientist who studies the aging brain says he started taking multivitamins because of his own research

Before that I thought I was good with a healthy diet and was taking and continue to take vitamin D +K, CoQ10, fish oil. milk thistle, hyaluronic acid, collagen peptides, probably others I'm forgetting.

 

For longevity: creatine,taurine,NAC,lysine (just started these)

I What am I not taking would be a shorter list. The most I order on HSN is Andrew's vitimins.  All through the day and 3 at night. I don't take any other brand of vitamins. Love listening to his explainations of each vitamin. Good information. So far blood work great. 

I have the usual old age symptons, but nothing like some younger than me, maybe in their 70''s.  I do exercise everyday. Have been for 65+ years.

I believe that is what has gotten me to where I am health wise. 

The vitamins are a plus to add to my diet, which is OK, but not strict.

I have lived longer than my parents, grandparents, husbands.

My Grandmother lived to 86, my dad 82.  I hope to be able to make 90 and still have the health and to take care of myself as I can now.

No outside help yet. I think a lot of people are living longer today. Moving ones body if you can is important and a good outlook.  

Good diet helps.  No fast or process foods. 

 

 


My thoughts exactly. I take a lot of Lessman vitamins and I won't ever stop. I am very healthy and I will continue taking these supplements.
