Healthy Ageing with Nutrition

As you get older, the risks of serious conditions like heart disease, cognitive decline and osteoarthritis grow. We all want to keep well as we age, so you will be happy to hear that there are certain nutrients you can consume through diet or supplementation, to safeguard your health into the future. 

Spice up your Joints

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in Ireland, affecting more than 400,000 people. Osteoarthritis is caused by wear and tear of cartilage in the joints. Inflammation of the joints can occur, which can cause cartilage to erode, leaving the joint with pain, swelling and stiffness.

ZinCuFlex is an innovative food supplement containing Ginger, Curcumin and Vitamin C. Ginger and Curcumin (the active part of Turmeric) are well known for their benefits for Joint Health. Ginger is an extract which helps to maintain joint mobility and avoid morning stiffness. Curcumin helps to control inflammatory responses in the body, helps to protect joints and helps to maintain joint flexibility. In 2015, Nordic Phytotech conducted a study of 200 ZinCuFlex users in Denmark. The results were outstanding with 90% participants reporting a significant improvement in joint mobility, with many feeling the difference within 14 days. Click here to buy!

Lower your Cholesterol Naturally

Coronary heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in Ireland for both men and women. High cholesterol is one of the major risk factors associated with coronary heart disease. According to Dr. Angie Brown, Medical Director of the Irish Heart Foundation, only 18% of adults over 45 years have a healthy cholesterol level in Ireland. 

Zerochol is a natural food supplement that contains plant sterols, scientifically proven to lower LDL cholesterol. As plant sterols are structurally similar to human cholesterol, they work by blocking the absorption of cholesterol in the gut, which contributes to a significant decrease in the blood LDL “bad” cholesterol level. New research confirms that 1.6 g (2 tablets) of Zerochol® plant sterols can lower cholesterol by 17% in 3 months, without any side effects. Zerochol also reduced Triglycerides by 17%, further improving the overall lipid profile and reducing risk of heart disease. You can purchase Zerochol here.

Reduce your risk of heart attack with Omega-3

There is more scientific evidence behind the cardiovascular health benefits of fish oil than any other nutritional supplement. The most beneficial Omega-3 fats EPA and DHA are primarily found in fresh, oily fish such as mackerel, salmon, anchovies and sardines. Your body can’t naturally produce Omega-3, so you must get these fatty acids from your diet.Surprisingly, a massive 89% of Irish people are not consuming sufficient oily fish in their diet, so often there is a need to take a good quality omega-3 fish oil. 

Omega-3s have been found to improve numerous heart disease risk factors. They help to reduce blood pressure, reduce triglycerides and improve blood circulation. Omega-3 has also been shown to increase HDL “good” cholesterol, thereby helping to reduce cholesterol levels, as HDL removes bad cholesterol from the body. Omega-3s also play an important role in thinning the blood and reducing inflammation throughout the body – in the blood vessels, the joints, skin and elsewhere.

Keep focused and decrease the rate of cognitive decline

The brain contains more than 100 billion cells working together to process information, form memories and recall. Each cell has an outer membrane which is actually made up of fat (lipids). Believe it or not, the typical human brain is actually about 60% fat, so we obviously need to include fats in our diets if we want to keep ‘mission control’ up and running.

It’s no surprise that omega-3 is so beneficial to brain health. The importance of these fatty acids becomes most obvious when they’re lacking. People who don’t get enough omega-3s in their diet can become demotivated, disinterested, forgetful and may experience low mood. Omega-3 DHA shields against age-related mental decline, improving both learning and memory in older adults. Scientific studies found that people with a higher level of DHA are significantly less likely to develop dementia and Alzheimer’s than people with a lower level of DHA. 

In past few years, scientists have started to look at omega-3’s potential to help in the treatment of mood and anxiety disorders. Interestingly, liu et al (2013) showed the people with anxiety had lower levels of omega-3 EPA and DHA compared with those without anxiety symptoms.
