Hi,

Could you guys please help me to put together a supplement plan for my mother? She's 65 years old and do not have any major health issues. I know she has a degree of osteoporosis and has Sciatica which makes one of her legs not work optimal. She also have to do colonoscopy due to her father died of intestinal cancer, but she's not having this issue, still it's highly inheritable. I'm not writing this in order to find medication to solve these issues but just in case they would have any impact on the supplements.

i got these advices for me, but I'm a 32 year old male so I guess it would look different for my mom:

multi vitamin: life extension mix
fish oils: super omega eta dha
coq10: super coq10
vitamin d3
aspirin 81 m

Is there anything I should drop or add? She want's to get serious and I'm afraid of buying anything she don't need or can be harmful or anything.

thanksSmile

Dear B:

Life Extension Mix and vitamin D can benefit almost anyone, as can fish oil and coQ10 unless they are using anticoagulant drugs .  For osteoporosis, see the suggestions at http://www.lef.org/protocols/metabolic_health/osteoporosis_01.htm

For sciatica, sometimes a chiropractor can help.

A colonoscopy is a good idea for anyone over 50, even those with no family history of colorectal cancer.

I heard some say that it's to late to take aspirin after you are 60. Is that true?

Is there anything else you would recommend?

Have not heard that recommendation and do not agree, however, aspirin should not be used by some people.  Check with your physician.

There are hundreds of other nutritional supplements available that address various concerns.  If you have any health concerns, additional supplementation may be warranted.

Should I ad any hormone stuff to her supplements as well?

If the results of blood tests indicate suboptimal hormone levels, hormone replacement can be considered if she doesn't have any conditions that would make it unwise, such as hormone-dependent cancers.  However, if one initiates estrogen replacement at age 60 or later when one's estrogen receptors have diminished, it could increase the risk of breast cancer.
