NOL, Nutraveris Online, the most efficient data solution to create, keep up-to-date and launch your products in the 28 EU member states, used for 10years by more than 500 industry leaders informs you:

The aim of this review was to summarize the state of the art regarding micronutrients in order to identify which of them might effectively improve health status in the areas typically impaired in older people: bone, skeletal muscle, and cognitive function.

The Italian Study Group on Healthy Aging by Nutraceuticals and Dietary Supplements performed this scoping review.

In literature, 12 relevant positive studies were founded.

Only 16 micronutrients resulted to have appropriate scientific evidences in terms of improving musculoskeletal health and/or cognitive function in older people: β-alanine, calcium, creatine, fluorides, leucine, magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids, potassium, vitamin B6, B9, B12, C, D, E, K2, and zinc.

Micronutrients effective in older adult disorders: bone, skeletal muscle, and cognitive function.

Effective daily doses of selected micronutrients that improve health status in the 3 areas (bone, skeletal muscle, and cognitive function), impaired in elderly.

This scoping review showed that selected micronutrients in adequate doses might have an ancillary role in musculoskeletal health and cognitive functions in older people.
