Home / Never Been a Daily Vitamin Person?

Approximately two thirds of adults in the USA take a multivitamin or daily supplement. That means roughly one third of adults do not. If you are reading this, you are probably one of them.

You’ve likely asked yourself:

  • Are there any real health benefits?
  • Am I wasting my money?
  • Do I really need vitamins?

 40% of individuals who do not take a daily supplement are deficient in at least one vitamin or anemic

  • There are 13 essential vitamins and 8 trace elements we must consume in adequate quantities for normal health and immunity. The Daily Value (DV) of each, determined by the FDA, is how much we are supposed to get every day.

  • Multivitamins contain some or all of these in different amounts.  You may be surprised to discover that none of the five best-selling multivitamins in domestic US sales contain 100% of the Daily Value of every essential vitamin and trace element.

  • If you consume a complete and healthy diet every day you are likely, but not guaranteed, to be getting adequate essential vitamins and trace elements.
  • The Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2020, published by the US Department of Health and Human Services defines a complete and healthy diet as consumption in appropriate caloric quantity of:
  1. Fresh vegetables from all of the colored sub-groups
  2. Fresh fruit, especially whole fruit
  3. Grains, at least half of which are whole grains
  4. Fat-free or low-fat dairy, including milk, yogurt, cheese, or fortified soy beverages nuts, seeds, and soy products
  5. A variety of protein foods, including seafood, lean meats and poultry, eggs, legumes and nuts, seeds, and soy products
  6. Poly-unsaturated oils

Who can maintain that diet every day? 

If you are like most people, you do your best to eat as healthy as you can.

The hectic pace of life, however, frequently requires us to make less than ideal dietary choices.

And foods high in sugar and saturated fats and low in nutritional value are everywhere.

Here are the statistics resulting from our collective diets and choices:

  • 40% of individuals who do not take a daily supplement are deficient in at least one vitamin or anemic

  • One third of the US population overall is least one vitamin deficient or anemic, with 23%, 6.3%, and 1.7% of the U.S. population at risk of deficiency in 1, 2, or 3–5 vitamins or anemia.

  • Percentages of US population with partial vitamin deficiencies:
     Vitamin D 33%
    Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) 11%
    Vitamin C 6.2%
    Vitamin B12 5%
    Iron 4.6%
    Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) 0.37%
    Vitamin A 0.28%

     

    YOU MAY HAVE NEVER BEEN A DAILY VITAMIN PERSON

    BUT THERE IS A NEW NORMAL. 

    AND THE NEW NORMAL IS THIS: 

    • There is an accumulating body of credible scientific evidence that Vitamin D, Zinc, Melatonin, and Flavonoids may be beneficial in supporting your immunity in COVID-19 infection.*

    • Although there is no mutually agreed upon scientific proof of these beneficial effects to date, the appropriate studies are ongoing worldwide by the most reputable scientific institutions in medicine.

    • Many institutions and physicians have elected to recommend these nutrients due to their widespread availability, relative safety, and on the basis of the existing scientific observations to date.

    • In an open letter sent to world governments December 21, 2020, 200 health, science and medical experts from the UK, US, and Europe say there is clear scientific evidence that vitamin D reduces Covid-19 infections, hospitalizations, and deaths.

    • Regardless of the outcome of ongoing studies, there is little disagreement in the scientific community that sufficient essential vitamins are required for optimum immune function.
