Elke Dag Senior 60 tablets - everyday multivitamin for seniors with added Q10, alpha lipoic acid, pterostilbene and lutein | Vitals
Vitals Elke Dag Senior is a carefully designed multivitamin for seniors over 50 years. The human body develops different needs over the years. The need for copper and iron decreases with age. A too high intake of those minerals at an advanced age can have a harmful effect on your health. This is why Elke Dag Senior does NOT contain iron and copper.
Take Vitals Every Day Senior
- extra support for eyes, bones and heart
- contains vitamin B2, B6 and folic acid in the biologically active form
- contains 25mcg vitamin D3 and 40mcg K2 per tablet
- with extra added Q10, alpha lipoic acid, pterostilbene, lutein and zeaxanthin
Vitamin B12 as methyl- and adenosylcobalamine, folic acid as bio-active folate
Men and women over 50 do need a higher intake of vitamin B12 as well as more folic acid to have proper brain function and maintain a healthy homocystein metabolism.
This is why each tablet contains 150 mcg of vitamin B12 in the biologically active forms of methylcobalamine and adenosylcobalamine (also called dibencozide), as well as 400mcg folic acis as biofolate.
In this multivitamin biofolate comes from Quatrefolic®* (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolate bound to glucosamine salt. This is the form of folic acid naturally present and used in the human body, where the bond with the glucosamine salt ensures stability of this biologically active form as well as that it is optimally absorbed by the body.
Biologically active (co-enzymatic) forms
Apart from these biologically active forms of vitamin B12 and folic acid, Elke Dag Senior also contains the biologically active forms of B2 and B6 which are equally important for a proper funtioning homocystein metabolism, which are riboflavine-5'-phosphate (B2) as well as pyridoxaal-5'-fosfaat (B6). The advantage of using these biologically active forms is that they can be directly used by the body and don't need to be converted anymore.
Vitamin D and K in the most effective forms
Vitamin D and K along with the minerals calcium, magnesium, silicon and boron are all very important factors that contribute to maintaining and building up strong bones at an advanced age.
By means of these minerals and vitamins this supplement ensures arteries are kept in good working order. Especially vitamin K2 (menaquinone-7 or MK-7) performs this role far better than vitamin K1 (phylloquinone).
Vitamin D is also important for proper maintenance of bone mass because it improves the absorption from calcium from food (or supplements) and deposition of it into bones.
But the scope of vitamin D is much wider than this as it also affects immunity, muscle function and ormal ccell replication. Considering the importance of this vitamin for health one single tablet contains a dose of 25 mcg or 1000iu of vitamin D3.
Silicon and boron for strong bones
Elke Dag Senior contains 15mg of silicon from bamboo and 1mg of boron. Silicon is needed for normal bone growth and a synergist of calcium. Boron improves the calcium and magnesium levels in the body.
Natural lutein and zeaxanthin for the eyes
Elke Dag Senior also contains a high dose of lutein and zeaxanthin, which protects the eyes against aging and ensures normal eye sight.
Other ingredients that improve eye sight are vitamin A, vitamin B2 as well as zinc.
Q10 and alpha lipoic acid
Co-enzyme Q10 and alpha lipoic acid are two vital molecules that have an important role in mitochondria that are present in each cell of the human body. A mitochondrion is like an energy factory where all glucose is being burnt and converted into ATP, the energy molecules that the body needs.
These two molecules are also important antioxidants that protect the body against free radicals. Elke Dag Senior contains a therapeutic dose of both compounds.
Pterostilbene, the better absorbed form of resveratrol
Finally, Elke Dag Senior contains an adequate dose of pure pterostilbene (pTeroPure®), which occurs naturally in blueberries.
Pterostilbene is also called the 'next generation resveratrol' as it is so much better biologically available than regular resveratrol.
Just like resveratrol from grapes, pterostilbene belongs to the phytonutrients that are called phytoalexins: plant-based defensive agents that protect a plant against funghi and bacteria.
As an antioxidant, pterostilbene protects the human body against oxidative damage and the stress of aging at a cellular level . Furthermore pterostilbene has a beneficial effect on blood pressure and blood flow.

Can zinc deficiency cause depression?
The health benefits of zinc include a proper functioning of the immune and digestive systems, controlled diabetes, reduction in stress levels, improved metabolism, and an increased rate of healing for acne and wounds. Also, it is helpful in terms of pregnancy, hair care, eczema, weight loss, night blindness, cold, eye care, appetite loss, and many other conditions.
What is the importance of zinc?
Zinc plays a vital role in protein synthesis and helps regulate the cell production in the immune system of the human body. It is mostly found in the strongest muscles of the body and is found in especially high concentrations in the white and red blood cells, retina, skin, liver, kidneys, bones, and pancreas. The semen and the prostate gland in men also contain significant amounts of zinc.
In the human body, there are more than 300 different enzymes that require zinc to function normally. Researchers believe that 3,000 proteins (out of approximately 100,000) have this vital mineral.
A normal person has two to three grams of zinc at any given time. There are organs in the human body which secrete it, such as the salivary gland, the prostate gland, and the pancreas. Even cells involved in the activity of the immune system secrete zinc. It is used up in various metabolic processes and eliminated through normal excretory and urinary channels, so it needs to be replenished often. If it isn’t, you will begin to suffer from deficiency symptoms.
A multivitamin a day keeps the doctor awayWith so many supplements available, and a lot of supplement advertisements in sports magazines targeted at athletes, one is rarely seen: ads for a multivitamin and mineral.
When you think about supplements, what are the first thoughts that go through your mind? Whey protein, nitric oxide, creatine, fat burners, or maybe something else? These are the ones that consume the ads.
What if I told you though that the most important supplement that you must have in your arsenal is not on this list? That is your basic multivitamin. From the chewable ones you took as a kid to the ones you have now. Oh, you don't take them? If not, you better change that immediately if you want to meet your fitness goals.
For the human body to complete all the tasks it has in a normal day, it must be given a wide and complex variety of vital nutrients. Becoming deficient in any one of these essential vitamins or minerals causes breakdown of the metabolic pathway that produces optimum efficiency and performance goes down quick. Obviously, this is NOT what you want!
take 1 tablet a day with ample water during a meal oror as directed by a qualified health practitioner.
This supplement is not suited for children younger than 10 years old.
