Nutrition and the Science of Aging: Key Nutrients in Aging

Nutrition needs are different for older adults and it is important that specific nutrients – including protein, fiber, vitamin B-12, vitamin B-6, calcium and vitamin D – are included in the diets of older adults as requirements change as we age.
