「賀寶芙亞太區健康熟齡大調查」台灣40中壯年成為主要「恐老族」

益生菌  顧「消化」守護「血脂、膽固醇」

201711060002.jpg優質營養專家美商賀寶芙(Herbalife) 公佈2017年「賀寶芙亞太區健康熟齡大調查」,台灣受訪者在「自認比別人健康」、「健康邁向熟齡人生的信心」二項指標中,皆列亞太區倒數末段班,全民恐老時代正式來臨!賀寶芙營養諮詢委員會委員、香港中文大學生命科學學院食品與營養科學系教授陳振宇博士指出,臨床研究發現,益生菌不但能夠維持消化系統健康,更可降低體內膽固醇、保護血脂,對於邁向健康熟齡大有幫助!賀寶芙資深營養師林若君建議,選擇益生菌首要考量「存活率」,不受高温破壞、經得起果汁機高速攪打、耐消化道胃酸膽鹼,益生菌進入體內仍具活性才能發揮最大功效。

40歲中壯「恐老族」 潛藏未老先衰隱憂;40-40法則 健康存摺及早開跑!

五大關鍵領域影響熟齡健康  老年營養認知急待加強 
美商賀寶芙2017年於亞太區12國進行的「賀寶芙亞太區健康熟齡大調查」[註1]發現,四分之一(26%)的台灣民眾自認比別人不健康,屬於12國末班生,只比澳洲好;同時,僅三成的台灣民眾面對老化有十足信心,在亞太12國中敬陪末座

賀寶芙台灣分公司總經理陳昭良表示,令人吃驚的發現指出:高達35%的40~49歲台灣中壯年對健康熟齡的未來没把握,比例遠高出50歲以上的長青銀髮族(23%),成為台灣的主要「恐老族」,潛藏反應出目前中壯族群的健康狀況,可能出現未老先衰的隱憂而對未來没信心。陳昭良總經理呼籲「40-40法則」,40歲中壯年及早為未來40年的健康準備,才能在人生晚期仍享有健康活躍的銀髮生活。

調查同時發現台灣人嚴重低估營養的重要性,雖然有57%受訪者同意運動對健康老化很重要,卻僅有18%的受訪者會積極加強營養,反應出台灣人對於老年營養的認知急待加強!

此外,「賀寶芙亞太區健康熟齡大調查」發現:台灣40歲以上族群,最關切的五大生理健康領域,包括:骨頭關節(54%)、腦部(49%)、眼睛(49%)、心血管(44%)、消化系統(36%)。

賀寶芙營養諮詢委員會委員、香港中文大學生命科學學院食品與營養科學系教授陳振宇博士指出,「調查結果顯示,有44%的台灣人擔心熟齡期的心血管問題,主要問題多半來自高糖、高油、高鹽帶來重口味的飲食習慣」。根據世界衛生組織公布資料,心血管相關議題是全球十大死因之首,也是亞太區共同面對的五大熟齡健康課題之一,更是台灣十大生命威脅[註2]第二名,僅次於癌症;膽固醇數值若異常,易造成不良血脂,好好控制膽固醇有益心血管健康。

益生菌:顧消化、護血脂,健康熟齡不可少
陳振宇博士特別指出,益生菌在五大熟齡健康領域中,可在心血管、消化系統二大領域發揮積極的保護效果,是邁向健康熟齡不可少的重要營養品,因為「益生菌改變腸道內菌叢生態,幫助餐後的消化作用,照顧消化系統同時提升自我保護力,更能幫助控制血脂、膽固醇!根據30個臨床研究指出[註 3],共1624個受測者使用益生菌之後,發現可以增加膽固醇的代謝物 – 膽酸的排出,因此有助於膽固醇的代謝,進而下降總膽固醇與低密度脂蛋白膽固醇的指數,守護心血管健康!研究中更進一步發現,持續攝取益生菌4-12周,可有效降低膽固醇約7mg/dL」。

陳振宇博士特別提醒,世界衛生組織[註4]指出:「存活率」是益生菌發揮功效的關鍵!益生菌很脆弱,若經過進出冰箱的温度變化、果汁機攪打等環境變化,已經大幅降低活性,食用進入體內後又可能遭受胃酸、膽鹼的破壞,極易造成益生菌出師未捷身先死,效果十分有限。

存活率差很大  慎選益生菌菌種
「耐高温」、「耐攪打」、「耐胃酸、膽鹼」是「存活率」重要關鍵!

賀寶芙資深營養師林若君進一步指出,市售的優格、優酪乳、發酵乳的益生(乳酸)菌存活率低,約為1%,因此建議慎選益生菌的菌種,例如: 「芽孢乳酸桿菌」的存活率高達70%,可以自行產生如同「防護罩」的堅固的外殼,避免受到胃酸、膽鹼、高温、冰冷、攪打等因素破壞,即是推薦的益生菌。存活率高的益生菌,才可確實改變腸道內菌叢生態,有益消化作用進行。

林若君表示,可常温保存的益生菌活性較穩定,若能不受高温破壞、並且無色無味,不但可以巧思創意冰飲,更可以搭配熱飲 (如:熱牛奶、熱茶、熱咖啡),或者於食物烹調完成後、菜餚上菜前加入益生菌,不但符合中醫以温熱食物養生的理念,同時打破必須低温保存、冰飲較適合的夏季限制,讓益生菌一年四季天天補好菌,健康平衡有活力!此外,若習慣用果汁機打果汁的廣大消費者(例如:咀嚼不易的老年人),須留意選擇可承受快速攪打的益生菌,才能喝進有效的活性益生菌,確實捉住健康營養!

林若君營養師進一步提醒,除了正確攝取益生菌之外,應建立良好的飲食習慣,外食族應多攝取高纖蔬果,再搭配每天適量補充益生菌,讓消化道菌叢達到最佳平衡狀態。

賀寶芙亞太區健康巡迴之旅
賀寶芙亞太區健康巡迴之旅於9月4日至10月26日舉行,將在亞太區11個國家和地區(柬埔寨、香港、印尼、印度、韓國、澳門、馬來西亞、菲律賓、新加坡、臺灣和泰國)舉行一系列醫學研討會、營養座談會和健康工作營。在巡迴期間,賀寶芙營養團隊和賀寶芙營養諮詢委員會(NAB)成員紛紛就相關健康知識分享專業觀點,討論主題囊括人體老化過程中營養所扮演的角色、新陳代謝與營養的相關性、食物與營養科學,以及營養應用在運動表現的作用。
