Common Health Issues of Elderly and Guide to Senior Wellness

The rapid development of medical science promotes longevity. Yet, aging is still an unavoidable issue. As we age, our body might not be functioning in the same way as it used to. Hong Kong is a well-known longevity city. To raise the quality of life of one’s elderly life, why not learn more about the common health issues of the elderly and ways to promote senior wellness!

Cardiovascular Diseases

The functionality of our cardiovascular system depreciates with time. Research suggested that the chance of a heart attack will increase significantly when men reached 45 years old and when women reached 55 years old. Although no one can run away from aging, everyone can prevent cardiovascular diseases by keeping healthy living habits. The World Health Organisation stated that cardiovascular is often a result of unhealthy eating habits, a lack of regular exercise, and overdose on alcohol. These unhealthy habits will ultimately lead to obesity and the three highs: high blood pressure, high blood glucose, and high cholesterol. And these symptoms are the reason that causes a rapid depreciation in our cardiovascular system. A balanced diet free from food that is high in sodium, sugar, and oil is a must to maintain a healthy cardiovascular system. Quitting smoking and drinking, starting a habit of exercising are also good ways to protect the cardiovascular system. Besides, complementing your body with omega-3 can also help you stay away from cardiovascular diseases!

Joint Issues

Joint Issue, particularly arthritis, is also a huge health issue faced by the elderly. Cartilage tissues will lose from continuous friction that evolves in our daily movement. And when our body detects the loss of cartilage tissues, it will automatically grow the bone tissue to fill up the emptiness. Arthritis is the pain that occurs when our bones are rubbing directly on each other. Keep a good seating posture, and a habit of regular exercise can protect the joints and our cartilage tissues. Make sure you also have a sufficient intake of chondroitin, the nutrient that helps keep our cells moist. Not only can it prevent the loss of cartilage, but it can also help repair lost cartilage to strengthen our joints!

As an easy-swallow formula, this supplement is easy on your stomach yet, at the same time, provides sufficient nutrients to boost the growth of cartilage tissues.

Dementia

According to the Hong Kong Department of Health, there are estimated to be more than 100,000 Dementia patients in Hong Kong, representing around 10% of the whole local elderly population! Dementia is a disease of decline in brain function due to neurological pathology. The patient’s memory, comprehension, language, learning capacity, calculation, and judgment ability would be affected. Some also present with emotional, behavioral, or sensory problems. It is a must to seek medical advice when symptoms of Dementia appeared. One should also follow a healthy lifestyle. Keep a balanced diet, often exercise, cure the chronic disease as soon as they appear, take part in activities that can strengthen the brain’s function. DHA and EPA are also two nutrients that can help prevent Dementia, a daily dose of these nutrients will keep your brain young and healthy.

Jamieson Wild Salmon Oil: The formula contains both EPA and DHA. EPA is particularly helpful in lowering cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood and, at the same time, dredge the cardiovascular. On the other hand, DHA helps coordinate nerves. It also maintains the operation of brain cells, which boosts memory ability and the ability to focus.
