For General Wellbeing, Enhance Vitality, Heart Health

In 1999 the Ministry of Health published a summary report on the Health of New Zealanders at the end of the twentieth century. It showed that the average life expectancy of males is 74.3yrs and females 79.6 years. This report went on to mention that almost 70% of deaths in our population are still potentially avoidable by primary prevention (health promotion) and by early intervention measures. Approximately 40% of the factors affecting life expectancy (eg: smoking, alcohol, low fruit and vegetable intake) can be controlled, suggesting that length of life can be extended but that quality of life can be enhanced through better health. The role of nutrition in the prevention of disease and the promotion of wellness cannot be underestimated.

A recent study suggests that a daily multivitamin/mineral supplementation can improve nutrient status in older adults. Researchers concluded that in addition to “reducing the prevalence of poor nutrient status, the multivitamin appears to have increased several vitamins into a more optimal range relevant to reducing the risk of chronic disease”(1).

Thompson’s 3RD AGE Senior Multi represents the cutting edge in senior nutrition. 3RD AGE contains all the essential nutrients such as Vitamins A, C, E, B Complex and minerals Zinc, Calcium, Magnesium and Selenium, and includes special nutrients such as Glucosamine, Phosphatidlyserine and Papain for good health.

Ageing dramatically increases the risk of developing degenerative joint diseases such as osteoarthritis as a result of cartilage loss. Forty years of clinical trials suggests that Glucosamine not only relieves the symptoms of osteoarthritis but also helps the body repair damaged joints.
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a natural fat found in brain cell membranes. It helps to ensure proper nerve function by keeping the membrane surrounding each brain cell fluid and flexible. Researchers have found that the age-associated decline in mental functions such as memory, learning and alertness is linked to the decline of PS levels in the brain. PS may improve mental processes and help prevent the development of Alzheimer’s disease.

Older adults often suffer from lowered nutrient absorption due to poor digestive processes. The digestive enzymes from Papain help to improve digestion and nutrient availability in the senior age group.
