High proteins are beneficial for elderly women

According to a new research conducted at the Purdue University published in American Journal of Clinical Nutrition states that the Elder women can good health by consuming 29 percent higher protein than the normal nutrition guidelines recommend. The present suggested dietary allowance for women over the age of 70 years is 0.36 grams for every pound and 46 grams of protein for somebody who is 130-pound woman. The same amount is recommended for the women older than19 years. The increased protein helps to maintain the health that will be helpful in daily physical activities. Wayne W. Campbell, an expert in dietary protein and human health, explains, “Our data suggests that the current dietary protein requirement estimate may be too low and reinforces that more research is needed to identify accurate protein amounts for older adults. I think the current recommended dietary allowance values serve an important role in that they are the foundation that guides national and international feeding programs, but these findings, along with previous research, indicate that consuming amounts of protein moderately above the current recommended dietary allowance may be helpful.”
