Opti-Age

 

Aim: Opti-Age is a new project that aims to explore the impact on bone mineral density in older adults of a dietary supplement of both B-vitamins and Vitamin D, in comparison with Vitamin D alone.

 

As part of this project, a vitamin enriched drink will be developed and tested for its effectiveness in optimising B-vitamin status.

 

Blood analysis will investigate the mechanism linking B-vitamins with bone.

 

Impact: This project will benefit the Irish Agri-Food Sector and the consumer by developing new value-added functional food products aimed at achieving better bone health in older adults.
