If you’re a family member who loves spoiling your grandparents then it’s best to give ample time in choosing their gift. Yes, they’ll appreciate little luxuries but nothing beats something that they need daily–vitamins! Here are some vitamins you can check out.
- Glutathione – is naturally produced in our body but it lessens as we age. So yes, your grandparents will appreciate a bottle of glutathione — the “Mother of Antioxidants”. It will keep their stress, mental health, and liver in check. It can also help prevent diseases like diabetes, cancer, and rheumatoid arthritis.
- Vitamin C – has many roles in the body that could benefit people of all ages. It reduces colds, neutralizes free radicals that can cause cancer, assists in the formation of white blood cells, and helps form collagen–which helps hold skin, ligaments, and cartilage together.
- Vitamin B12 – Meat and dairy products are good sources of B12 but as your lolas and lolos age, their ability to absorb vitamin B12 decreases. Lack of B12 can cause anemia and, in some cases, nerve damage. Even a slight vitamin B12 deficiency can cause a host of undesirable symptoms. A daily intake of B12 will help them create energy from food, create red blood cells, support bone health, and improve memory. Did you know that Spirulina is one of the richest sources of Vitamin B12? Give it a try and experience its other anti-aging and antioxidant benefits too.
- Calcium – is found in our bones but as we age, calcium tends to leave our bones. Help the seniors in your family maintain strong bones with Calcium supplements. Also, encourage them to do weight-bearing exercises, such as brisk walking, golf, or dancing with you so their bones stay strong too!
Having a hard time choosing the right vitamin to give to the seniors in your life? How about…buying all of them and letting them choose! Give the gift of health this Christmas!
