Senior Health

Getting older doesn't mean that we have to be any less healthy. Thousands of people well into their 90s enjoy a happy, active and healthy lifestyle - something that every senior citizen is entitled to. They know that by eating the right foods, being regularly active in both body and mind, and maintaining good social interactions awards them with a quality of health that some 40-year olds struggle to achieve.

Eating a balanced diet that contains all the right nutrients in the right proportions is key to senior health. A good mix of energy-giving carbohydrates, bone-strengthening calcium and foods that provide protein are the essential ingredients, as are foods that are rich in fibre, vitamins and minerals. Supplements that help boost your daily intake of the right body nutrients are available too, and are highly recommended to keep yourself in tip-top condition.

Maintaining a healthy weight through activity or even an exercise class is another cornerstone of healthy living in later life. Being overweight makes our body inefficient at producing energy and also increases the number of free oxygen radicals in our blood. This puts us at a higher risk of diseases like heart failure and cancer, as well as contributing to the acceleration of the ageing process.

Not smoking, forging new friendships and keeping the mind active through hobbies, games and sports all contribute to a good quality of life as we get older. For more information on senior health please use the resources on our site.
