Microgenics 50+ Multivitamin 120 Capsules

Why a multi for those over 50?
As we age, not only do our nutritional requirements change, but so does the way our body processes nutrients. It is estimated that 20% of the elder population have low stomach acid. This can affect the absorption of nutrients such as vitamin B12, calcium, iron and magnesium.1

Studies estimate that 10–30% of people over age 50 have a reduced ability to absorb vitamin B12 from their diet.2 Additionally, up to 40% of the elder population have low or deficient level of vitamin B1.3 The majority (92%) of older Australians don’t consume enough fruit and vegetables to meet the daily recommended guidelines, therefore missing out on essential vitamin and minerals.4

Support healthy bones

People over 50 years of age have an increased need for calcium, vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 to help maintain healthy bones, but studies have found that absorption of calcium in the gut declines with age5 and that aging can make the skin thinner, which reduces its ability to make vitamin D3.6 This can have a negative impact on bone health.

Women over the age of 50 have the greatest risk of developing osteoporosis. It is estimated that 23% of Australian women over 50 have osteoporosis and are four times more likely than men to develop it.7 It is well-known that calcium is essential to maintain healthy bones. However, you need vitamin D3 to assist with the absorption of calcium from the digestive tract.11 This means that vitamin D3 can thus help reduce the risk on developing osteoporosis later in life..

Support heart health
Increasing evidence links thiamine (vitamin B1) deficiency with many cardiovascular diseases and risk factors8 and studies suggest that taking thiamine supplements may help improve heart health in the elderly population. Taking a daily multivitamin should provide enough thiamine to support heart health.9

A growing number of studies point to vitamin D deficiency as a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, such as high blood pressure. Low vitamin D levels have been associated with increased prevalence of hypertension and atherosclerosis. How this exactly works isn’t yet clear, but studies so far have shown that maintaining optimal vitamin D levels play an important role in supporting cardiovascular health.10

B vitamins to support energy production
The B-group vitamins are a collection of eight water-soluble vitamins essential for many metabolic processes in the body. Whilst B vitamins do not provide the body with energy, they are essential to help convert carbohydrates, fat and protein into energy. Most of the B vitamins can’t be stored by the body. This means that they must be consumed regularly in the diet to ensure a sufficient supply. Extended cooking, food processing and excess alcohol consumption can destroy or reduce the availability of many of the B vitamins.12
