Today, like many of your fellow 50-plussers, you’re probably out there working hard, and playing even harder.
Consider some facts about 50-somethings today: The average age for an incoming CEO is 53. More women than ever are opting for motherhood into their 50s. And on average, no one is thinking about retiring any time soon.
For you, as for many people in their 50s, age is a matter of fact rather than a milestone.
Or perhaps things are slowing down—in a good way. Maybe you’ve opted for a less hectic work schedule, or are enjoying the peace and quiet of that empty nest. Perhaps you’re taking a long-awaited break while you contemplate new hobbies, plan vacations you’ve been saving up for, or get ready to upgrade your fitness regimen. Whichever path you’re on, one thing is certain—you are still raring to go—just in a different direction than before.
To your body, age is more than just a number.
When you compare your lifestyle in your 40s versus your lifestyle in your 50s, you may feel that your life is fuller, busier, and more exciting than ever. But, behind the scenes, your body is going through changes in how it processes nutrients. This could put you at risk for deficiencies in certain Vitamins and minerals, which in turn could have a negative impact on your energy and your ability to do all that you want to do.
With age comes wisdom…and a multivitamin!
In your 50s, your body’s ability to absorb Vitamin B12 may be compromised. Deficiency in certain Vitamins can affect your nervous system, heart health, metabolism, and general well-being. For example, adequate levels of Vitamin D are essential for bone and muscle strength; Vitamins A, C, and E, lutein, and zinc support eye health; and omega-3 fatty acids can sustain a healthy blood-lipid profile. For women entering menopause, changes in their estrogen levels could accelerate calcium loss. And since our vulnerability to chronic diseases increases with age, that's all the more reason to get enough of the Vitamins that support immune system function—like Vitamins C, D, E, B6, and iron—to name a few.
So what can you to do to stay on top of your game and ensure you’re getting all of the nutrients you need? In addition to a healthy diet and lifestyle, there is something you can do today that should fit into your routine seamlessly—and that’s taking a daily multivitamin that multitasks as well as you do! A multivitamin provides not only energy-supporting nutrients, but also nutrients that help immunity, brain function, heart health, and more, allowing your body to remain responsive to the demands of your lifestyle.
