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.
