What is special about the diet?

People who are over 50 should reconsider their diet as they might be missing some nutrients. With age, it’s harder to track the number of calories you consume every day. But it’s important to know that this number of calories you actually need starts to decline.

Even more, some products are difficult to digest, which can become the real problem if you prefer eating fast food or high cholesterol food.

That’s why you should check if you have enough of the nutrients described below.

  • Vitamin B12

B12 plays a crucial role in creating red blood cells and DNA. It keeps the nerves healthy and makes them work normally.

Rich B12 food includes fish, meat, poultry, eggs, milk products. Maybe you should consider taking B12 supplement.

  • Calcium

Who’s working for your strong bones? Calcium! If you don’t have enough of this nutrient, the risk of brittle bones and fractures will increase. To get more of calcium, add to your menu the following products:  low-fat milk and other dairy products, kale and broccoli, smoothies.

Also, you can buy calcium and vitamin D supplement but consult with your doctor beforehand.

  • Magnesium

This element takes part in 300 different physiological processes. Unfortunately, the amount of magnesium absorbed by the human organism reduces with age.

To keep up with the level of magnesium in your body, consume more of unprocessed foods (fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, beans, and seeds)
