Ageing is inevitable, it’s natural and normal and something to be celebrated! But with age comes certain health concerns we may want to stay on top of to ensure we stay our very best and healthiest selves.

Yes some of us want to target things like skin elasticity, thinning hair, and dryer more sensitive skin, however other issues like the effects of menopause, joint and muscle pain or reducing the impact of free radicals are things to keep an eye out for as the birthdays pass.

The key to keeping well as we age is maintaining habits like exercise and healthy eating, but supplements help where can fall off at times.

The most helpful advice for keeping well during the later years is prioritising healthy eating, exercising daily and cutting back on harmful behaviours like smoking or drinking too much. However adding a boost to your diet with supplements that target your concerns are a great way to keep on top of the inevitable changes that come with age.

Now there is no magic potion of supplements that will magically rewind the hands of time, however there are certain vitamins, minerals and ingredients to look for when wanting to try adding supplements to your diet.

  • Vitamin C – Not only is vitamin c a champion in helping ward off colds and flus, it also helps to promote youthful glowing skin. It helps with collagen reproduction and improves immune function in older people.

  • Collagen – As we get older collagen production slows, which leads to things like wrinkles and sagging skin. You can find collagen supplements that can be added to your morning coffees or taken in pill form and they can help improve your skin elasticity, nail and hair growth and reduce wrinkles.

  • Glucosamine – This handy supplement can not only assist with things like skin health and wrinkles, it is also super important in maintaining joint health, which as we all know only gets worse with age. It can help relieve pain and inflammation from things like osteoarthritis and general cartilage health.

If you’re interested to try adding some supplements into your morning routine, read on to find some of our favourite picks that target a range of anti-ageing concerns.

Ensure to read the label of any supplements you are taking and consult with your doctor first.
