Many stressful situations adversely affect the human body during the life cycle. A person’s life and lifespan depend on the degree and type of immunity of the organism. The elderly population, whose immune system should always be stable, is particularly at risk here. A stable immune system protects against diseases and enables a better quality of life. Many people over the age of 50 already use medications / therapies that burden the vital organs (heart, liver, kidneys) and weaken the immune system. These individuals need to further strengthen their diet and immunity especially during respiratory and viral infections, colds, and flu. Drastically changing the living and eating habits of the elderly population is more difficult. A variety of supplements are an excellent choice for the proper functioning of vital organs. Balanced intake of vitamins and minerals contributes to the strengthening of the organism and better resistance of the organism.
