As we age, our metabolism and cell production changes, as do the nutrients we need to support those systems.
We also develop food preferences, which we stick to, meaning that we’re probably not getting all the nutrients we need through our diet. For instance, as women age, they need more calcium, iron and Vitamin D, some of which can be difficult to find in food. These vitamin deficiencies can cause a variety of diseases and health issues, including a general sense of fatigue.
By speaking with a specialist who can address your individual nutrition needs and taking supplements to help bridge the gap, women can lead overall healthier lives.
Listen as Dr. Nicole Avena joins Dr. Holly Lucille to discuss how nutrition needs change as a woman ages.
