Gut Health Benefits of Prebiotic Fiber

When it comes to longevity and aging well, prebiotics are an important element. This type of fiber nourishes the good bacteria in your gut – called probiotics – naturally repairing your gut health.

Prebiotics can help to lower the risk of colon cancer, help the body better absorb calcium and minerals, boost immune function, and can also aid weight loss.

Aging Benefits of Protein

Protein is the most important macronutrient; several studies have shown elderly people consume less than the daily recommended amount of protein. Inadequate protein intake is closely linked to loss of muscle strength and functionality.

Are You Getting Enough Protein?

It’s common that as we age we eat less food. Whether this is from a lack of appetite, changes to smell and taste, difficultly in eating due to denture problems, living alone, or simply losing interest in cooking. This can mean, as we age, we aren't getting enough important macro and micronutrients, despite the need for many nutrients being higher.

How Much Protein Do I Need?

The recommended protein intake for adults is 0.6 to 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day.

Many nutrition experts now recommend older people increase their protein intake compared to younger adults. Older women in particular, should increase their protein intake to a minimum of 1.0-1.2g of protein per kilogram of body weight per day.

Not All Protein is Created Equal

Dietary sources of protein include meats, eggs, plants and dairy products but not all of those are created equal. To assess the quality of dietary protein three criteria can be considered: protein biological value, protein efficiency ratio, and net protein utilization.

Above, you can see examples of different types of protein and their quality.
