March is National Nutrition Month.
Many ask why supplement in the first place.
I eat healthy, I avoid fast food. Why supplement???
Up to 90% of Americans are lacking key nutrients in our diets.
With busy lives and food choices that are less than ideal, it is hard to get the essential nutrients we need for good health. Based on Daily Values (DV) for just 16 nutrients, 11 of the 16 were deemed to be “gap nutrients”.i And DVs reflect expert consensus about generally adequate amounts to meet basic requirements in most healthy people – not what may be required to achieve optimal health.

Ensuring we are getting the nourishment needed to support our bodies’ optimal functions can be a challenge, but nutritional supplementation can help fill in those gaps. Countless research studies and health experts agree that supplementing with key nutrients, including a multivitamin and multimineral complex, phytonutrients, probiotics, and omega-3 fatty acids, provides a good nutritional foundation.
The Landmark Study
To understand the relationship between supplementation and long-term health, the first-of-its-kind Landmark Study was conducted in collaboration with researchers from the UC Berkeley School of Public Health. Researchers gathered a group of long-term (20+ years) multiple-supplement users and compared their health to non-supplement users.
What were the Findings?
Researchers discovered that the overall health of long-term multiple-supplement users was dramatically different from that of nonsupplement users. The multiple-supplement users had improved levels of important heart-healthy biomarkers.
As expected, the multiple-supplement users also had substantially higher levels of nutrients in the blood.
Lower Risk of Disease
As a group, the multiple-supplement users had a lower risk of high blood pressure (39%) and diabetes (73%), and multiple measures of cardiovascular risk trended in favor of supplementation.
Quality supplements can help fill nutritional gaps left by less-than-optimal food choices, our overworked bodies, and our toxic environment.
