Men Age Group 45-65 Years of Age
As men head into middle age, they can benefit from paying closer attention to their diet and nutrition, and specific supplements can be taken to support this.
Men develop new needs once they reach this time of life, and these nutritional requirements cannot always be satisfied entirely by the foods we eat. Unfortunately, there are several nutrients which are vital at this time of life, but which cannot easily be found in the food chain.
This product contains one of each of the following:
- Multi Antiox + Zinc + Q10
- EFA Complex
- Zinc and copper
- Multi-vitamins and minerals
To effectively address dietary and nutritional needs, it is important to remember that the digestive tract performs at its best when conditions are slightly alkaline. In practical terms, this means at least 60% of the diet should be comprised of alkali-forming foods.
In addition, these acid and alkali-forming foods need to be eaten both raw and cooked form, with 20% of our consumption ideally being made up of raw foods. One of the key reasons for this is the supply of enzymes, special proteins that play a crucial role in the body’s processing, digestion and absorption of nutrients. Usually, the enzymes manufactured within the body are created in the liver. For this reason, healthy liver function is a vital matter to consider. It is also important to note that several different minerals are important during this process, as well as particular healthy fats. Different groups of enzymes are needed for successful biological functioning. For men in this age range, it’s vital to consume a suitable diet to enable proper enzyme manufacturing. During these years, the friendly gut flora become more crucial for the functioning of our digestive process. This form of flora is also called beneficial bacteria, and the manufacturing of this flora goes into permanent decline for most men after they reach the age of fifty.
Several of the helpful bacteria in the body’s digestive tract are vital for the creation of many vital B vitamins. Factors such as stress, pharmaceutical antibiotics, frequent consumption of garlic and high consumption of dietary fats, animal proteins and refined sugars (sucrose) can cause levels of harmful bacteria to rise, contributing to raised levels of detrimental free radicals.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Before beginning this plan, we strongly recommend taking our Detox Formula which will help to cleanse your body and assist your gut’s ability to absorb the nutrients included within the Disease formula. It will also help to raise levels of healthy flora within the intestinal tract, making a positive contribution towards overall health and wellbeing.
In today’s world we are increasingly exposed to harmful toxins from many different sources. We advise that you pre-empt any dietary or nutritional program with one of these cleansing programs, and that you repeat the process twice per year.
