Micronutrients and older adults.

Abstract

The aging population worldwide is increasing. Although many older adults are living longer, healthier lives, aging is also associated with a variety of physiologic and psychological changes that influence nutrition status and the need for medical care. Many factors increase the risk for poor nutrient intake among older adults. Suboptimal micronutrient intake for particular vitamins and minerals is reported to be common.
