Vitamin Use Increases As Healthcare Costs Rise
As the population ages, many geriatric people find it difficult to absorb all the nutrients required optimally. This can also be exacerbated by a loss of appetite.
Elderly people also tend to suffer from vitamin D deficiency due to lower exposure to sunlight, thus they are increasingly reliant on vitamin D supplements, particularly in Asia. In fact in 2011, a study showed that in Japan those over the age of 60 account for 44% of the entire supplement consumption.
In addition to the growing healthcare costs it has triggered an increasing shift to an increase of supplement usage, including vitamins.
This is no more illustrated by the increasing expenditure on R&D in both Europe and the USA.
However, it is the Asia-Pacific region where the largest market for vitamin supplements lay. Fuelled by an increasing geriatric population, and increasing awareness regarding health and wellbeing in conjunction with the rising healthcare costs have contributed to this recent surge of sales.
Moreover, with the benefits of increased testosterone for men and women including improved sexual function, mental well being, stronger bones, increased muscle mass and decreased fat levels a supplement can prevent a host of problems that may otherwise incur expensive prescription costs further down the line.
Vitamin D3 is an excellent and cost effective way to help towards increasing testosterone levels. Just 15-30 minutes of exposure to the sun will provide you with your required daily requirements. However, if your environment of working practises do not permit daily exposure to sunlight you may wish to choose a testosterone booster supplement which includes D3 as part of the ingredient profile.
Be sure to pick one that also contains Zinc, Magnesium, B6, B12, Fenugreek, Oyster and D-Aspartic Acid. All of these ingredients have been proven to stimulate an increased level of testosterone in conjunction with a weight training plan.
