Micronutrients: how important in old age?

, : Micronutrients: how important in old age?. European Journal of Clinical Nutrition 46 Suppl 3: S29-S37

Studies have frequently found micronutrient status in the elderly to be low or of borderline adequacy. It is fact of life that ageing is associated with failing bodily functions but this deterioration takes place at different rates in different people. The features accompanying marginal micronutrient status are very often non-specific, and the very fact that micronutrients take part in a myriad of biochemical mechanisms makes them an obvious choice for investigations into the ageing process. The purpose of this lecture was to look at some of these data to determine what clinical risk or other disadvantages might be associated with poor status. In other words, what benefits might be achieved by a more normal status or by supplementation.
