Senior Multivitamin, Premium Benefits

Filed Under: General Wellness & Wellbeing,Vitamins and Minerals at 9:30 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Multivitamins can be essential to provide vitamins and minerals which people may be missing from their diet. Senior citizens have unique needs in their daily diet and it makes sense they would need a special formula for their multi vitamins.

Multivitamin products developed for seniors can be very helpful as, according to the Institute of Medicine, seniors may not absorb vitamins and minerals in their food. For example, seniors may not get up to 30 percent of the vitamin B12 from food they consume. Based on the latest guidelines, the Institute of Medicine recommends 1,200 mg of calcium per day for women over 50 and men over 70. Both men and women over the age of 70 are advised to get 800 IU of vitamin D daily.

Additionally, the size of the tablets of multivitamin products may be an issue for some seniors but capsules or chewable are good alternatives. In last case, a pill crusher can come in handy to break down the larger tablets. Vitamins in powder form may actually be the best option as seniors can easily drink it and, as a bonus, increase absorption as liquid is the most absorbable form. Check with your doctor before you start taking any vitamins or supplements, particularly if you are taking medication.
