The drug you should give to your parents as gift

When paying a visit to elderly parents, we often think of what to buy along to make them happy. Producers of Peak milk suggest you buy their product to show appreciation for your parents, we suggest you buy supplements too (or instead).

Elderly individuals need to be regular on supplements because the age factor makes them prone to a number of conditions.

Take for example, Osteoporosis.

OSTEOPOROSIS literally means ‘porous bone’ and there are often no symptoms of bone loss until the bone becomes so weak that a sudden fall, strain, or bump causes a fracture. The older people get, the more fragile their bones generally become.

Elderly individuals need to be regular on supplements because the age factor makes them prone to a number of conditions.

Calcium, an essential nutrient for a strong skeletal structure, is stored primarily in the bones. Some of the principal sources of calcium are milk and dairy products, such as yogurt; fish eaten with the bones, oatmeal, and dark-green leafy vegetables. But, in order for calcium to be absorbed by the body, vitamin D is essential. This vitamin is synthesized in the skin by exposure to sunlight and can be found in such foods as egg yolk, saltwater fish, and liver. However, the amount of these essential food substances consumed daily is usually too small to meet the daily requirement of needed nutrients for the elderly.

Thus, elderly ones often require an increased intake of calcium and vitamin D to meet the body’s demands and try to make up for effects of the age factor. This is just one example. Other minerals and vitamins such as Zinc, Vitamin B complex and C are also very important for graceful aging.

     Elderly ones often require an increased intake of calcium and vitamin D to meet the body’s demands.

So get your elderly parents supplements, it can save you the cost of managing avoidable fracture(s) and other conditions (diseases) that may follow. Get them supplement and you will be glad you did!

NOTE:

  1. Proper diet and lifestyle adjustments to preserve bone mass and to increase bone strength are also necessary to reduce the chances of fracture among the elderly – a noteworthy one is avoiding a sedentary lifestyle; get them (elderly) to be busy with something, anything.
  2. Pharmbi.com does not endorse any product as the better choice.
