Why Nutritional Supplements?
More and More studies clearly show the benefits of different vitamins and nutrients in the prevention of cancer, heart disease, and other medical conditions
Data compiled by the US Dept of Agriculture showed that at least 40% of Americans routinely consume less than 60% of the recommended daily intake for essential nutrients.
After 20 years the American Medical Association completely reversed its anti-vitamin stance and now encourages all adults to supplement with daily vitamins; “All of us grew up believing that if we ate a reasonable diet, that it would take care of our vitamin needs. But the new evidence, much of it in the last couple of years, is that vitamins also prevent the usual disease we deal with everyday-heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, and birth defects”. –Dr Robert Fletcher, JAMA 6-12-02
Are all Nutritional Supplements the Same?
