Health Care Savings From Supplements.

Supplement usage among U.S. adults increased from 62 percent in 2009 to 73 percent in 2013, according to a recent report from the Natural Marketing Institute. This is good news for health care costs based upon results from the 2013 Counsel for Responsible Nutrition Dietary Supplement Cost Savings Report. Here's what they found:

  • Magnesium: A cumulative savings of $6.8 billion from 2013 to 2020 in avoidable hospital utilization costs is potentially realizable if all U.S. women over the age of 55 diagnosed with osteoporosis were to use magnesium dietary supplements at preventive intake levels.
  • Omega-3: Nearly $4 billion in cumulative net CHD-attributed cost savings from 2013 to 2020 is potentially realizable if the entire target population (U.S. adults over the age of 55 diagnosed with CHD) were to use omega-3 dietary supplements at preventive intake levels.
  • B Vitamins: A cumulative 808,225 CHD-related medical events from 2013 to 2020 could be avoided if all U.S. adults over the age of 55 diagnosed with CHD were to use the B vitamins folic acid, B6, and B12 at preventive intake levels.
  • Phytosterols: An average of $4.23 billion per year in avoidable hospital utilization costs is potentially realizable if all U.S. adults over the age of 55 diagnosed with CHD were to use phytosterol dietary supplements at preventive intake levels.
  • Chromium Picolinate: A cumulative 649,944 events from 2013 to 2020 could potentially be avoided if all U.S. diabetics over the age of 55 diagnosed with CHD were to use chromium picolinate dietary supplements at preventive intake levels.
  • Lutein and Zeaxanthin: An average of $3.87 billion per year in avoidable health care utilization costs is potentially realizable if all U.S. adults over the age of 55 diagnosed with ARED were to use lutein and zeaxanthin dietary supplements at preventive intake levels.
  • Calcium and Vitamin D: Over $12 billion in cumulative net osteoporosis-attributed cost savings is potentially realizable if the entire target population (U.S. women over the age of 55 diagnosed with osteoporosis) were to use calcium and vitamin D dietary supplements at preventive intake levels.

A Healthier Halloween

Shopping for Halloween treats? Consider purchasing an edible and non-edible treat. A study we always refer to, from Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, states that when given the option, children between the ages of 3 and 14 choose toys over candy during trick or treating.


Along with offering non-edible treats, make sure the edible treat is as healthy as possible. A dark chocolate square, such as the Endangered Species brand, is actually considered healthful.


A few tips for your own children:

  • Give them a snack before trick or treating to avoid cravings.
  • Give them your own treats to eat at school or after-school parties.
  • Offer them five or ten cents for every piece of candy they collect as an alternative to eating all of it!
