Vitamin deficiency and seniors. Yet the medical 'care' industry has no problem drugging seniors up because geriatric medicine is catastrophic failure in America. Vitamins and fitness are too simple a solution for these so called docTORS.

Bombard your seniors with information like this and tell them to aggressively ask their doctor WHY they haven't recommended vitamins and/or a fitness program.

Another problem is that many so called doctors say just take a multivitamin. But you don't always absorb vitamins in multivitamin form. Sometimes it does pay to take individual vitamins at different times of the day in combination with others. I know seniors who take a calcium supplement yet for decades you take calcium with magnesium and/or vitamin d for better absorbtion.

Just another conformation to what the fitness community has been saying for DECADES.
