Nutrition For The Elderly
Author: Jenny Gill
Healthy eating and nutrition for the elderly are significantly impacted by several factors, including changing body composition. The body will lose bone and muscle during the later years of life and gain fat because the hormones aren’t very active anymore.
Many factors hinder an older adult’s health.
The information below will help you lead a healthy life – no matter how old you may be.
1. Water: Water in the body decreases with age, so many older folks will quickly become dehydrated. Sometimes they won’t feel thirsty, while other times, it’s too much work to pour a glass of water. With this in mind, it’s recommended that they drink at least 1 ounce of water for every 2.2 pounds of weight.
2. Protein: At this stage in life, protein is essential.
Protein is needed to support a healthy immune system and prevent muscle wasting. Since energy needs are more minor, older folks should eat high-quality protein such as eggs, lean meats, poultry, and fish.
3. Carbs and fiber: Carbohydrates are the primary energy source for the entire body. You can find carbs in bread, cereals, pasta, and other grain products. A diet that’s high in fiber and water will help prevent constipation.
4. Fat: Fat intake for the elderly should be limited, not eliminated. You can limit fat by choosing lean meats, low-fat dairy products, and food preparation methods that don’t include frying.
5. Iron: For the elderly, iron deficiency can be seen in those who aren’t eating much. Good sources of iron include lean red meats or breakfast cereals.
6. Zinc: Zinc intake usually is with the elderly, and to make matters worse, it’s not absorbed very well either. Meat, poultry, and fish should be a part of your diet to help you meet zinc requirements.
7. Calcium: Calcium is one ingredient that most elderly folks
only aren’t getting enough of. Most believe that milk upsets their stomach, so that they will avoid it. They should be getting around 1,500 mg of calcium a day, and nonfat powdered milk can be used in recipes as a substitute for milk. Other foods such as yogurt, low-fat cheese, and broccoli can also help you meet calcium requirements.
8. Vitamin B12: To absorb the benefits of B12, the
the stomach must produce an intrinsic factor. Most older adults suffer from a deficiency in B12 because they have a condition known as atrophic gastritis. This condition causes stomach inflammation, bacterial overgrowth, and intrinsic factor. Without the intrinsic factor, this vitamin can be absorbed.
Each of the above nutrients is needed to keep an aging body in good health. Elderly individuals should try to stay active and strive for a well-balanced diet. Even though the old body isn’t the same as it used to be, proper care and the right nutrients can help the elderly enjoy a healthy and long life.
