Researchers from The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing at Trinity College Dublin have shown that lower levels of specific dietary vitamins and antioxidants are associated with frailty.
While this research was described in the media as “the largest study to date”, to our website’s regular visitors the idea that lower levels of micronutrients are associated with frailty will be anything but surprising.
As Dr. Rath’s Cellular Medicine research has taught us, the primary cause of today’s most common chronic diseases, including various forms of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, and others, is a long-term deficiency of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other specific micronutrients. It therefore follows that an optimum daily intake of the correct micronutrients is a basic preventative measure for maintaining health. In the absence of such an intake, the ageing process makes frailty increasingly likely.
