It’s clear that our bodies change over the course of life. But once we get older, we often shut it down mentally. But from the age of 25 we begin to age physically. And with that, our needs also change. If you pay attention to this, you can slow down the aging process, boost your performance and stay fit and healthy. We tell you what changes to look for after 30.
3 nutrients that the body needs after the age of thirty
1. More calcium
Bone problems such as osteoporosis, dental problems or cramps are typical health problems that occur in old age. To prevent this, precautions should be taken from the age of 30. An adequate supply of calcium is especially important for this. The mineral is essential for the health of our bones, teeth, muscles, and nerves. Get enough dairy products, mineral water, and calcium-rich vegetables like broccoli, kale, and fennel.
2. More Vitamin D
Vitamin D is important at any age. It is essential for the immune system and the health of our bones. To get a sufficiently high level of vitamin D, we have to go out into the sunlight, because the body’s production of vitamin D is stimulated by UV rays. However, as the body ages, we can produce less and less vitamin D ourselves. Therefore, you should pay attention to spending longer periods outside and eating fatty fish (such as herring, salmon and tuna), egg yolk or supplements.
3. Fewer calories
The older we get, the less energy our bodies need in the form of calories. This is because the body’s metabolic processes are slower and slower, the composition of hormones changes, muscle mass decreases and we generally move less. Starting at the age of 30, you should monitor your basal metabolic rate of calories per day and see if your intake and consumption remain the same. Otherwise, sudden weight gain at this age will happen quickly.
