Book Description :

Foods and Dietary Supplements in the Prevention and Treatment of Disease in Older Adults focuses on the ways in which food and dietary supplements affect the major health problems of aging adults. Researchers in nutrition, diet, epidemiology, and aging studies, as well as healthcare providers who work with elderly patients will use this comprehensive resource as a tool in their long-term goal of preventing and treating chronic disease within the elderly. This book brings together a broad range of experts working on the different aspects of foods and dietary supplements (vitamins, herbs, plant extracts, etc.) in health promotion and disease prevention. They have contributed chapters which define a range of ways in which foods, nutriceuticals, and dietary supplements prevent disease and promote health in older adults. They begin by reviewing the medicinal role of foods, herbal, and dietary supplements in health promotion in older adults, as well as some of the most commonly used supplements in elder "self-medication." They review the most recent studies of how foods, herbal, and dietary supplements are effective in the prevention and treatment of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other obesity associated diseases in older adults. Then they consider alcohol, other drugs, and plant based drugs of abuse which can adversely affect the health of older adults. Lastly, they consider foods and dietary supplements in gene regulation in older adults. Investigates the important nutritional requirements of the aging population in health and in relation to various acute and chronic diseases Explores the nutritional effects of botanical extracts and components that can have important health promotion benefits, and risks, to ensure safe consumption Reviews studies of common diseases within the aging population including cancer, cardiovascular, metabolic, and infectious diseases that can alter the intake of foods, supplements, and/or requirements for various nutrients Investigates the mechanisms of action of components of foods and dietary supplements, in particular gene activation and epigenetics

Book Description :

Europe is facing an ageing population. Life expectancy is at its highest and many European populations are experiencing major demographic changes and transition towards a much older population structure. However, despite living longer, many people suffer ill-health or disability in the last 15 to 20 years of life. To encourage active and healthy ageing and to help increase healthy life expectancy, the European Commission has launched the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (the Partnership), which aims to add an average of two healthy life years in Europe by 2020. This report aims to support the Partnership and to review the contribution of diet and nutrition in increasing healthy life years and promoting active and healthy ageing (AHA). The report gives a description of the main determinants of AHA including economic, social and behavioural factors and how they may relate to diet. It focusses on the issue of undernutrition in older people–both a cause and consequence of functional decline. Given the importance of undernutrition and that micronutrient deficiency is a common problem in older adults, this report summarises the evidence regarding micronutrient supplementations in the prevention and treatment of age-related diseases and conditions. At this stage, the current evidence seems insufficient to support the use of vitamin and mineral supplementation to prevent or treat specific cognitive or functional impairments in older people, although it does not imply that supplements are not effective. As it stands, another approach to ensure proper nutrition in older people is to maximise their intake of essential vitamins and minerals from natural food sources. Indeed, evidence so far on the Mediterranean Diet supports this whole diet approach to promote health, increase longevity and reduce the risks of various age-related diseases in observational studies. A number of research gaps are also highlighted in this report. Above all, there is a need to provide better guidance on diet and nutrition for older people and a set of age-specific, up-to-date dietary recommendations is essential to achieve this.

Book Description :

The field of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) is expected to grow tremendously in the next few years. In addition to an increase in the general population, the baby-boomer generation is quickly entering retirement and will likely take advantage of CAM increasingly as it ages. Although CAM research as applied to aging is just beginning and health professionals receive no special training in CAM and aging, the United States population still continues to employ it. For diagnoses that accompany aging such as cancer, neurological diseases, psychiatric disorders, and physical disabilities, CAM has often been used in addition to or in place of unsuccessful conventional methods of treatment. This new and up-to-the-minute compendium of reliable and authoritative information on complementary and alternative therapies seeks to provide information that older adults may use as they seek to improve their health and quality of life. Covering dietary means; physical, mental, and spiritual methods of treatment; and various types of therapies, this handbook is the most comprehensive and up-to-date resource on complementary and alternative medicine available today. Each chapter or article includes: Brief definition of modality Anecdotal reports of usefulness Discussion of scientific evidence for and against modality List of resources that reader can use to find further information Examples of therapies covered include: Art & Music Massage Acupuncture Meditation Homeopathy Ayurveda Aromatherapy

Book Description :

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality remains the primary cause of death worldwide, despite the decline in developed countries. CVD includes a variety of heart and vascular conditions: hypertensive heart disease, stroke, and ischemic heart disease. Some risk factors such as age, gender, and family history cannot be changed. Other causes, including diet, tobacco, drugs of abuse, alcohol, and lack of exercise, can be altered. In this book, experts review the validity of various dietary approaches in prevention and treatment of CVD for promotion of heart health. In summary, nutrients, nutraceuticals, macronutrients, and gastrointestinal microbes modified by prebiotics and probiotics play important roles in heart health and disease. The five sections in the book give an overview of the role of vitamins and minerals, nutrition and nutrition counselling, dietary supplements, herbs and foods, protein and energy, and microbes. A useful part of the chapters in this book are the key facts and summary points.
