    Original Date: June 6, 2018

    The nutrition needs of people change as they age. Stomach acidity, tissue laxity, dentition, polypharmacy, and decreased microbiome diversity all present unique challenges to nutrient absorption. They also play a crucial role in the development and progression of common chronic diseases of aging like diabetes, neurodegenerative disease, cardiovascular disease, and bone health. In this presentation I will discuss how specific changes that come with age can be supported through nutrition and supplementation. I will also outline specific herbs and diet protocols that help support nutrient absorption and microbiome diversity.
