CALCIUM

Calcium is one of the mandatory micro nutrients in our daily diet. Since it is used for mineralisation purposes in our organism the usual calcium intake is relatively large in order to build and keep healthy bones and teeth.

Especially when age becomes an issue a high calcium intake is cruical to prevent the loss of bone mass & corresponding medical conditions:

THE VERSATILE SUPER NUTRIENT

VITAMIN D

  • Vitamin D is a generic term for a family of checmical structures with similar vitamin activity
  • the main purpose of vitamin d is to increase the calcium and phosphate absorption, making it a major roleplayer in developing a healthy bone structure
  • aside from that vitamin d contributes to a healthy heart, skin & immune system, is a regulatory factor for insulin secretion and impedes the growth of tumor cells
  • In western society 90-95% of elderly people don’t reach the official recommended intake amount of vitamin d which makes vitamin d a critical nutrient even in wealthy industrialized countries
  • Even with a well-balanced diet it’s hard to get a suficient supply of vitamin d. Only a bunch of foods as oily fish, liver or york contain considerable quantities of vitamin d
  • Although we can synthesize vitamin d by ourselves the contribution to our needs is comparatively low and gets even more reduced the older we get

Vitamin d is the only vitamin which is classified as a semi-essential micronutrient since we are able to build it by ourselves via sunlight and a metabolite of cholesterol.

However we are dependent on nutritional substitution to get the right amount of vitamin d we need to not experience any deficiency-realted health issues as osteoporosis and bone deformities.

THREE MAJOR REASONS WHY A SUPPLEMENTATION WITH VITAMIN D IS RECOMMENDED NOWADAYS

Unimilk Adult 50+ contains 4 µg of vitamin d3 per portion – the most active form of this important nutrient, contributing to healthy bones, muscles, teeth and an optimal calcium homeostasis.

STRENGTH & MOBILITY

PROTEIN

As soon as we enter the 6th decade of our lifespan, on the one hand we experience a loss of body functions and on the other hand we begin to notice health issues in our daily lifes. This natural phenomena is called senescence. Aside many other factors one manifestation of this aging process is a progressive decrease in muscle mass and strength.

PERCENTAGE OF MUSCLE MASS

20 – 30 years old

45%

70 years old

27%

AS SIDEEFFECTS WE CAN OBSERVE:

  • impaired balance
  • decreased walking speed
  • falls
  • impaired thermoregulation
  • decreased metabolic rate
  • decreased food / essential nutrients intake
  • fat gain
  • osteoporosis
  • decreased activity levels
Modern research shows that in case of elders an increased protein intake is able to attenuate the muscle loss due to an increase in muscle protein synthesis

The newest recommendations of official nutrition associations regarding the daily protein intake go up to 1,8 – 2,0 g of high quality protein per kilogram of bodyweight

Unimilk Adult 50+ contains 31,5% of high quality milk protein – a natural combination of casein and whey protein of high biological value, delivering high amounts of the most important amino acids to trigger muscle maintenance and muscle growth.

HEALTH & ACTIVITY

TIPS

  • EXERCISE – to stay fit and healthy nutrition and physical exercise go hand in hand. In order to keep up your bone density at a high level, avoid activities like long-distance running or aquaerobic, instead chose resistance training or normal aerobics
  • DON’T STARVE YOURSELF – a slightly increased body mass index is correlated with more stable bones, especially when it comes to women. Keep attention not to lose weight below normal levels, but don’t drive into obesity as well
  • INCREASE PROTEIN INTAKE – the older we grow the less our muscles respond to physical exercise. Research shows that a higher protein intake is able to restore these adaptations. Focus on more protein rich food and use Unimilk Adult 50+ as a supplement to your daily diet
  • LOSE WEIGHT – if you tend to obesity, try to decrease your bodyweight by reducing your caloric intake and increasing your exercise and protein amount. This improves joint issues, your mobility and reduces risks for age dependant illnesses
  • GENERAL NUTRITION – reduce your intake of saturated fatty acids, increase intake of fruits and vegetables, prefer fiber rich foods and reduce consumption of alcohol
  • PAY ATTENTION TO FOLIC ACID AND FIBER – aside calcium and vitamin d investigations show that people who already passed their 50s often don’t reach the general recommendations for folic acid and dietary fiber, eventually resulting in higher risks for cardiovascular deseases in higher ages.
