Aging is a process everyone will eventually have to go through, and your patients are no exception. Guiding and teaching your patients about how to stay healthy can help them avoid severe health conditions and diseases as they age. There are many ways a primary care provider can help their patients age smoothly; one way is to encourage increased antioxidants in their diets. Let’s explore a little more about how antioxidants can help your patients age as well as which InterHealth products can help you get your patients on the right track.
What are Antioxidants?
Antioxidants provide cells of the body with the ability to fight off harmful species that enter or are created within the body due to damage from oxygen; this is called oxidative stress. Antioxidants are made up of enzymes and a variety of other substances such as beta carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, etc., that can neutralize or put a stop to the harmful effects of oxidative stress.
Antioxidants and Aging
Oxidative stress can potentially lead to Alzheimer’s disease, cancers, heart and blood vessel disorders, atherosclerosis, heart failure and heart attack, and many other problems all of which are common among aging patients across the United States. Increasing your patient’s intake of antioxidants does have the ability to help decrease their potential of having to experience these issues. Although genetic history also plays a large part in these matters, antioxidants can reduce the chances of patients experiencing them. As mentioned above, antioxidants do have the ability to intervene with the harmful effects of oxidative stress and sometimes the ability to stop it. Giving your patients information about this correlation could increase their capacity for graceful and healthy aging or eliminate their chances of experiencing typical aging problems.
To help you assist your patients with their aging process, try suggesting products that contain InterHealth’s Protykin®. Protykin® is a dietary supplement filled with antioxidants.
