A Supplement a Day Keeps the Doctor Away!

If you are a senior and want to reduce your risk for doctor visits, hospitalization, and long-term care, try adding certain dietary supplements to your daily routine. Not only can it potentially save you a significant amount of money, but it could actually add years to your life. DSEA (Dietary Supplement Education Alliance) president Elliott Balbert states, “With healthcare costs for Americans 65 and older expected to reach $16 trillion by the year 2030, the need for innovative and preventative healthcare solutions is clearer than ever.”
 
A new study by The Lewis Group finds that omega-3 fatty acids and lutein with zeaxanthin have hidden savings of $3.1 billion and $2.5 billion respectively over five years, due to reduced stays in the hospital, decreased doctor’s visits, and increased independence. These specific supplements help seniors avoid conditions like coronary heart disease and age-related macular degeneration, which can significantly extend your life and/or reduce the level of disability that comes along with these conditions.
