Three of the most important areas of health to focus on to support healthy aging are the immune system, vision care, and brain function.

Our immune systems naturally become less effective at fighting off bacteria and viruses as we age1. There is also a higher risk of experiencing serious complications from infection, cold, and flu1. The most important nutrients for boosting the immune system include vitamin A2, C3, D2, E4, and vitamin B65.

Age-related macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss as we age, and it affects 2 million Canadians over the age of 506. Vitamin A is essential for vision health and has been shown to significantly reduce the risk of macular degeneration7. Vitamins C and E help to prevent or slow the progression of cataractsand reduce the risk of macular degeneration through their powerful antioxidant activity7.

Maintaining a healthy mind is one of the most important things we can do to support healthy ageing. About 1 in 4 Canadians over the age of 85 are living with dementia8, but long before there is a diagnosis of dementia, we can experience challenges with memory and cognitive function. Vitamins B19 and B210 are essential for communication from the brain to the body. Vitamin B3 increases blood flow to the brain, combats age-related damage in the brain, and has been shown to protect against Alzheimer’s disease and age-related cognitive decline11. Vitamin B6 reduces homocysteine, which is an independent risk factor for developing Alzheimer’s disease12.

Who may benefit from Epresat

  • People with dietary restrictions, or who may not always eat balanced meals.
  • To support healthy vision as we age.
  • Frequent infection, cold or flu.
  • People at risk for memory or cognitive decline.
  • Individuals with digestive conditions that may reduce absorption of nutrients, including Celiac and Crohn’s.
  • Individuals taking certain medications, including acid-blockers, oral steroids, cholesterol lowering, blood pressure lowering, and oral contraceptives.

It can be challenging to eat a healthy diet each day. Health Canada reports that over 35% of adults do not get enough vitamin A from the diet13, and that we become increasing deficient in many of our other essential vitamins as we age.

Vitamin D is unique because we produce it as a result of sun exposure. Since we live in a cold climate, 70-97% of Canadians have insufficient vitamin D levels14, so daily supplementation of 400 IU of vitamin D is recommended for every Canadian over the age of 5013.

Dr. Hilary’s Tips for Healthy Ageing

  • Eat a diet rich in nutrient-rich foods, including healthy proteins, nuts, seeds, beans, dark leafy greens, and other brightly coloured vegetables.
  • Variety is key! Every food has a different profile of vitamins and minerals. The more variety we eat, the more likely we are to give our bodies everything it needs. Try to buy two veggies each week that you haven’t cooked with a while. The next time you buy beans, nuts, or grains try something new.
  • Focus on having healthy sources of fat, fibre and protein with every meal. When we plan our meals around these three key nutrients, it helps to prevent us from filling up on nutrient-poor foods.
  • Ask for a vitamin D blood test at least once per year. Low vitamin D puts at as risk for bone density loss, depression, and a weak immune system, but high levels of vitamin D in the body can be toxic. We get vitamin D from sun exposure, so lab testing to accurately adjust supplementation is important when we live in a cold climate.
  • Heal the gut! A healthy digestive system ensures that we’re able to absorb nutrients from food. If you are experiencing digestive upset, irregular bowel movements, heartburn or bloating, it may be an indication that your gut could benefit from additional support.

Epresat is designed to help prevent nutrient efficiencies and support healthy ageing in three of the most important areas of our health as we age: the immune system, vision care, and brain function.

Epresat contains vitamins A2, C3, D2, E4 and B65, which are essential for boosting the immune system to help us fight infection more effectively. Vitamins A, C and E are also effective for preventing and slowing the progression of vision loss from age-related macular degeneration and cataracts7.

Epresat contains key B vitamins that support healthy cognitive function and memory9-12. These B vitamins also support the production of the hormones that regulate sleep and balance mood, and boost energy by helping us convert food into fuel10.

Epresat is naturally flavoured with organic fruits and herbs. The liquid formulation is easy to digest and readily absorbed. It is lactosefree, vegetarian-friendly and made without preservatives, artificial flavours or colours.
