Salus Epresat Multivitamin
Description & Features
Three of the most important areas of health to focus on to support healthy aging are the immune system, vision care, and brain function.
Our immune systems naturally become less effective at fighting off bacteria and viruses as we age1. There is also a higher risk of experiencing serious complications from infection, cold, and flu1. The most important nutrients for boosting the immune system include vitamin A2, C3, D2, E4, and vitamin B65.
Age-related macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss as we age, and it affects 2 million Canadians over the age of 506. Vitamin A is essential for vision health and has been shown to significantly reduce the risk of macular degeneration7. Vitamins C and E help to prevent or slow the progression of cataractsand reduce the risk of macular degeneration through their powerful antioxidant activity7.
Maintaining a healthy mind is one of the most important things we can do to support healthy ageing. About 1 in 4 Canadians over the age of 85 are living with dementia8, but long before there is a diagnosis of dementia, we can experience challenges with memory and cognitive function. Vitamins B19 and B210 are essential for communication from the brain to the body. Vitamin B3 increases blood flow to the brain, combats age-related damage in the brain, and has been shown to protect against Alzheimer’s disease and age-related cognitive decline11. Vitamin B6 reduces homocysteine, which is an independent risk factor for developing Alzheimer’s disease12.
Who may benefit from Epresat
- People with dietary restrictions, or who may not always eat balanced meals.
- To support healthy vision as we age.
- Frequent infection, cold or flu.
- People at risk for memory or cognitive decline.
- Individuals with digestive conditions that may reduce absorption of nutrients, including Celiac and Crohn’s.
- Individuals taking certain medications, including acid-blockers, oral steroids, cholesterol lowering, blood pressure lowering, and oral contraceptives.
It can be challenging to eat a healthy diet each day. Health Canada reports that over 35% of adults do not get enough vitamin A from the diet13, and that we become increasing deficient in many of our other essential vitamins as we age.
Vitamin D is unique because we produce it as a result of sun exposure. Since we live in a cold climate, 70-97% of Canadians have insufficient vitamin D levels14, so daily supplementation of 400 IU of vitamin D is recommended for every Canadian over the age of 5013.
As we age, certain areas of our health become increasingly important, especially our vision, immune system, and brain function. However, it can be challenging get enough nutrients to support these three key areas of our health from the diet alone13,15.
Epresat is specifically formulated to provide the building blocks our bodies need to for healthy vision, a robust immune system, and to maintain memory and brain function.
Epresat is naturally flavoured with organic fruits and herbs. The liquid formulation is easy to digest and readily absorbed. It is lactose free, vegetarian-friendly and made without preservatives, artificial flavours, or colours.
Combined with a healthy diet and lifestyle, Epresat helps to provide the vitamins we need to support a healthy body and mind as we age.
