You can avoid becoming frail
as you age without exercise
One of the biggest fears in aging is becoming frail or infirm. None of us should be fearful of normal aging. All of us will age and pass on. However, my goal for you as well as myself is to be healthy right up to the end. And a recent study confirms that following my advice will help you do just that. And it doesn't involve any exercise.

I've always said that the best way to stay healthy is to eat a healthy diet. Then take a broad-based multivitamin to fill in any gaps in your nutrition. This new study showed that those women with the biggest nutritional deficiencies were the most likely to become frail.

The ongoing Women's Health Study followed 766 women aged 65 and older for nutritional status and frailty. The study found that the women in the lowest quartile for carotenoids, vitamin E, and vitamin D were at a much higher risk. Further, the more deficiencies, the higher the risk.

Here is clear reason to eat nutritionally dense food. You'll find a healthy dose of carotenoids in fresh living vegetables. You can get ample vitamin E in nuts, seeds, and wheat germ. And vitamin D comes naturally from the sun, but you'll likely need to take a supplement to avoid being deficient. Dead, processed, and cooked foods are all depleted in micronutrients.
