Nutrition

Constant exposure to our environment, the things we eat, and stresses from both inside and outside our bodies all cause us to age over time. Fortunately, a well-balanced diet full of essential nutrients can help support a healthy life. Watch our short films on nutrition and healthy aging to learn more about the biological processes of aging, how we can maintain healthy throughout our lives with healthy lifestyles and nutrition, and how scientists are learning more about the specific nutrients that positively impact aging.

You can also learn more about malnutrition, a condition that can happen to anyone but becomes more common as we age. A short film covers who is at risk for malnutrition, the debilitating impact it can have on older adults, tips for identifying the condition, and how it can be treated and prevented. Additionally, a tip sheet for healthcare professionals helps identify at-risk patients, screen for malnutrition, and personalize treatment plans.
