As adults get older, it is common for them to experience decreased appetite and activity levels, which in turn causes them to eat less—potentially leading to vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
These vitamin deficiencies have been linked to chronic diseases including heart disease, cancer, and bone loss.
Studies have found that there are several factors that can lead to dietary deficiencies in older adults. At the same time, it varies depending on the person and their genetics or lifestyle choices.
It goes without saying that using fresh foods to prepare meals is the optimal way to achieve a balanced diet. However, as people age this is easier said than done for both physical and financial reasons. As people get older, it is common for them to rely on pre-prepared meals that do not require any additional ingredients and minimal preparation as their main meal of the day.
Unfortunately, these types of meals are considered to be the cause of vitamin deficiencies due to their poor, nutritional quality.
Nova Vita Wellness Centers offers a variety of intravenous (IV) vitamin infusions and booster shots to help boost these common vitamin deficiencies. We also offer a complete, personalized vitamin profile test which can help you understand which vitamins your body lacks and the role each vitamin plays. From this profile, we can compound an infusion specific to your body’s needs.
