Probiotics for the Elderly

Winclove Senior

Keeping a healthy digestive system and thus a healthy intestinal microbiome is, especially for elderly, very important to maintain good health. 

Probiotics can be beneficial in supporting the ageing microbiota and sustaining an healthy immune system.

When we picture ourselves getting old, we prefer an image of ourselves where we are still very healthy and  active. For example  going for walks together  with our children and grandchildren in the forest  or practicing yoga on the beach. In other words: we want to get old, but in a healthy way which enables us to keep active and self-supportive.

Keeping a healthy digestive system and thus a healthy intestinal microbiome  is one very important factor for all ages, especially for elderly. It is  known that our microbiome changes during  our life-time. An ageing microbiota is characterized by decreased diversity, reduced levels of beneficial bacteria and increased pathogenic and inflammatory species. Also, an ageing immune system gradually decreases in functioning, resulting in a low- grade chronic inflammatory state, also referred to as “inflammaging”.  A changing microbiome and inflammaging along with other factors, make elderly people more frail and more prone to (chronic) diseases. Probiotics can be beneficial in supporting the ageing microbiota and sustaining an healthy immune system.

Inflammaging is linked to most age-related health problems, such as dementia, Alzheimer or atherosclerosis.

As science reveals more about the ageing gut microbiome and the role of probiotics,  Winclove decided this was the right moment for an upgrade of the existing Winclove Senior formula. Therefore nine strains, compared to six strains in the old formula, were selected for their capacity to inhibit pathogens and strengthen the barrier and immune function in a synergetic way. The specific combination of strains in the new Winclove Senior  forms a powerful, broad-spectrum formulation, which adds to the so much needed diversity in the more mature microbiome.

 

Because  many elderly do not have adequate serum vitamin D levels, we have also added 10 mcg Vitamine D3 as a standard component to Winclove Senior. Vitamin D deficiency is, among others, associated with osteoporosis and muscle weakness. Moreover, several claims have been approved by the EU for vitamin D supplementation. Contact our Sales team if you are interested in adding Winclove Senior to your assortment.

 

Note: Winclove Senior is a b2b formulation, not commercially available and not intended to prevent or cure any diseases.
