There are many factors to consider when our diets are lacking the valuable nutrients that are needed to maintain optimal health.
Many people, who for various reasons are not getting the right balance of nutrients from their diets, may choose to take supplements to help maintain or improve their health.
Today you can walk through any one of the large supermarket style chain store pharmacies where rows of shelves are filled with countless varieties of supplements and ‘better health’ products.
It can be overwhelming to try and find the right product for your needs and know whether or not the product has any ingredients in it that may cause an adverse reaction.
These supplements could include:
Older adults also have different needs when it comes to vitamins and minerals.
The right amount of calcium can help fend off osteoporosis in older women
Vitamin D, which helps your body take in and use calcium, also helps prevent bone loss and broken bones in older adults
Even though supplements can be purchased over the counter in most Perth pharmacies, it is important to seek helpful information from your local pharmacist.
