An unfortunate effect of aging is your body no longer performs at peak capacity. It’s less capable of producing and absorbing certain nutrients that you need to function.

It’s also more prone to health issues that certain vitamins and minerals can help treat or regulate.

This is why after you turn 50, you should consider taking supplements. Fifteen supplements in particular can help your body continue to work that way that it should.

Remember to consult your doctor before beginning any supplements, and be aware that supplements are not regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, so quality and safety can vary across brands and manufacturers.
