Healthy ageing: improving metabolic function to maintain a high quality of life

The development of comprehensive and accessible medical care has significantly improved quality of life (QOL) and increased life expectancy. Nevertheless, metabolic ageing gradually deteriorates lifestyle and fitness condition. As part of the ageing process, chronic low grade metabolic disturbances are correlated to the development of oxidative stress. Polyphenols, found in a variety of botanicals in our daily diet, have been demonstrated to enhance metabolic functions thanks to their antioxidant potency.
Developped by Fytexia, the ingredient Fiit-ns® delivers benefits from selected fruit & vegetable extracts to improve QOL based on the rejuvenation of metabolic functions. The benefits of Fiit-ns® are supported by 2 clinical studies.

The science behind anti-ageing: More than skin deep?

Anti-ageing products prosper around the world, even as empirical data builds demonstrating the ability of foods and nutrients to modify the ageing process.

We’ll explore the science behind nutrients sold on benefits as diverse as healthy skin and healthy hearts, and look forward to reaching a more fundamental understanding of the ageing process and the role of foods and supplements in it.

The role of resveratrol in healthy ageing

Resveratrol (see also res.evolva.com) is a natural plant ingredient belonging to the family of polyphenols and is associated with a range of beneficial effects. In the public mind it is perhaps most associated with red wine. However, the amounts in red wine (approx. 1mg/glass, though it varies a lot) are too low to be beneficial (most studies suggest you need 50-150mg/day of resveratrol to see such effects).

Numerous scientific publications and a growing body of clinical research support resveratrol’s role in healthy ageing. In this webinar we will review some of its most relevant health benefits, including:

• Maintenance of a healthy cardiovascular system
• Support of healthy blood glucose, insulin and blood pressure levels
• Maintenance of healthy neurocognitive function
• Reduction of oxidative damage common with ageing
• The metabolic benefits of calorie restriction
• Increase of fat oxidation and storage capacity in muscles

Malnutrition in the elderly

According to research from the UK’s Malnutrition Taskforce, only 51% of health professionals in the UK think malnutrition is a priority in their organisations.
But with malnutrition having such a grave impact on health outcomes and risk of hospitalisation, is this an issue European governments can really afford to neglect?

Ayela Spiro, senior nutrition scientist at British Nutrition Foundation, tells us why short term costs of strategies tackling elderly malnutrition in the community could make massive health care savings in the long term – and what she thinks those strategies should look like.
