March 7th, 2016 – The Alliance for Aging Research, in partnership with the Mars Center for Cocoa Health Science, has released a series of three animated “pocket films” that explain the role of nutrition in healthy aging and highlight some of the latest findings in nutrition research. The films are intended for consumers, as well as nutrition experts, primary care physicians, and medical centers, to use as an educational resource. They are meant to be shown anywhere on a tablet or smart phone. You can see the press release here. For more about the films, you can also visit their home page.
From the day we are born, we are aging. The foods we eat can play a significant role in how our bodies age. Researchers have long known how certain foods can have a negative effect on health, but more recently they have begun to explore and understand how nutrition may play a role in promoting healthy aging throughout all of life’s stages. These films will help consumers learn how certain foods and nutrients can affect their health, give them tips on what to consider before turning to supplements, and empower them to maintain and improve their own health.
Nutrition for a Healthy Life
This film explores the biological processes of aging, how we can maintain health throughout our lives with healthy lifestyles, and how scientists are learning more about the specific nutrients that can positively impact health.
Healthy Aging with Nutrition
This film offers tips on a healthy diet, how to safely turn to supplements, and how to be a well-educated consumer.
Heart Healthy Aging with Nutrition
Watch this film to learn more about the aging of our CV system, research on bioactive compounds and how they may help maintain heart health, and a look at how cocoa flavanol supports healthy blood flow.
