I’m planning to introduce my granddad to green tea capsules and fish oil. He’s 75+ and I would like the opinion of you folks. As we’ve heard, too much of anti-oxidants can be counter-productive, and fish oil can also cause oxidative damage.
What are your thoughts? Is there any benefit at such age? I’m hoping the fish oil will reduce the joint pain and green tea can provide some anti-oxidative benefits.
Thanks in advance.
I don’t see why he would not benefit from this - probably can’t hurt, might do some good. I would recommend these to anyone at any age. For green tea, I’d buy the genuine article, not the rubbish powdered “toot” that’s sold at the local supermarkets.
The interesting point will be whether Granddad can cope with these new tastes after all this time - assuming he’s not tried them before? That might be a challenge. Good luck to you and especially your Granddad.
