CHANGES WITH AGING: SENSORY

 

The three main senses [taste, smell, touch] all decline after age 50. This is is often so gradual that most people do not recognise the change until around 75-80.

 

Changes In Taste With Age

The tongue atrophies with age, which may result in diminished taste sensation; however, the number of taste buds remains unchanged and the responsiveness of these taste buds appears to be unaltered.

 

Changes In Smell With Age

Sense of smell declines rapidly after the age of 50 for both men and women, and the parts of our brain that are involved in smell degenerate significantly. By age 80, the detection of smell is almost 50 percent poorer than it was at its peak.

The combination of decreased taste and smell reduce the discrimination and enjoyment of food.

Enjoy sensory pleasure with aromatherapy oils.

 

Changes In Touch With Age

Our response to painful stimuli diminishes with aging. Pressure touch thresholds on the index finger and the big toe decline more in men than in women.
