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
