The older you get, the fewer nutrients you can absorb. Here’s what you need to know about the top vitamin deficiencies in the elderly.

1:50 Top nutritional deficiencies in the elderly

Today I want to cover the top nutritional deficiencies in the elderly. This is actually a big problem.

There is even something called “tea and toast syndrome,” which develops over time as a person’s diet degenerates into things like bread, crackers, and even canned meats. A lot of deficiencies can be created from this type of diet. Typical foods served in nursing homes, such as many cooked foods, sugary foods, low-quality foods, and snacks, can also lead to deficiencies.

A lot of the elderly also take synthetic vitamins. The first ingredient in a lot of synthetic vitamins is calcium carbonate, which can be a problem. Medications are another thing that can also deplete vitamins.

The older you get, the less stomach acid you’re going to have. This means that you’re not going to be able to digest protein or pull in the amino acids, which are needed to help repair and heal the body. In this situation, it will also be harder to absorb vitamin B12, which can create a range of issues.

Top nutritional deficiencies in the elderly:
1. Vitamin D
2. Vitamin B1
3. Potassium
4. Magnesium
5. Sodium
6. Trace minerals (especially zinc)
