Make sure good nutrition supports your long life

Do your homework

The best way to ensure healthy aging is to eat a balanced diet throughout your life full of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, limited amounts of lean meat and protein, low or nonfat dairy products, moderate or no alcohol, and continue to be physically active.
Vitamin B12 (2.4 micrograms, which is best to get from fortified foods or supplements as food sources are harder to absorb) is needed as our bodies can’t absorb it as well as we age, and vitamin D is needed in greater amounts as our bodies don’t make as much the older we get. The newest recommendations are 600 IUs up to 70 years old, and 800 IUs 70 years and older.
