Malnutrition is common among those 60 years and above. Malnutrition occurs when the body lacks the nutrients it needs to maintain health due to one or more factors.
As we age, we cannot escape from age-related physiological and biological changes.
Physiological and Biological Changes as a Result of Aging
ü Loss of teeth
ü Chewing difficulties (often due to residing gum)
ü blueuced sense of taste
ü Dry mouth – affecting food intake and choices
ü Poor oral health
ü Poor digestion due to lack of saliva and digestive juices
ü Poor nutrient absorption
ü Decrease in smooth muscle tone with slower food movement through the
system and breakdown of food becomes weaker
Key Points on Wellness 60+
Complete Balanced Nutrition Food
Appeton Wellness 60+, complete with carbohydrate, protein and fat, helps to provide sufficient amount of energy for the elderly. By taking 2-3 servings of Appeton Wellness 60+ on top of their normal diet, the energy required for the elderly per day will be able to be met. With 8 servings of Appeton Wellness 60+ a day, sufficient amount of energy and nutrients for an elderly’s daily requirement is provided. The energy distribution is designed according to the United States Dietary Reference Intake (US DRI) for elderly and the fat composition complies with The American Heart Association’s Nutrition Committee fat guideline.
Formulated with Energy Complex
Energy Complex consist of energy-releasing micronutrients which are important in improving the vitality of an elderly. It contains Coenzyme Q10 and B Complex to help metabolise energy effectively from food. Concurrently, Chromium helps to maintain normal blood glucose level.
High Quality Protein
Protein helps your body maintain and rebuild muscles. Excess protein in the body is filtered by the kidney. If there are high levels of protein to be filtered by the kidney for the long term, this may damage the kidney. Kidney function also deteriorates as a result of aging.
Appeton Wellness 60+ is formulated with specific quantity and quality of protein that meet the needs of an elderly. The protein in Appeton Wellness 60+ is a slow-release protein (casein protein). It supplies a gradual amount of protein to the body without burdening the kidney. It will also help maintain the muscle mass and prevent the breakdown of muscles, without causing a protein spike in the elderly. Since kidney function deteriorates as you age, a lower and slower release of protein content in Appeton Wellness 60+ makes it more kidney-friendly for the elderly.
Appeton Wellness 60+ contains high quality protein that includes all the essential amino acids which cannot be synthesis from the body. Appeton Wellness 60+ also obtains the highest possible Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS*) of 1.0 (A PDCAAS value of 1 is the highest, and 0 the lowest). The PDCAAS rating is a fairly recent evaluation method and been adopted by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations/Would Health Organization (FAO/WHO) in 1993 as “the preferred best” method to determine protein Quality.
* PDCAAS is a method of evaluating the protein quality based on the amino acid requirements of humans.
