Most Are Deficient in Micronutrients

eNewsletter 6/3/2024

DID YOU KNOW that relying on food alone to meet your micronutrient needs is misguided?

A new study from The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published findings from a huge cohort of men and women who were followed for 15 years. When assessing 21 micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), the authors state that little has changed with regard to meeting the daily value requirements compared with the last assessment 15 years ago.

Keep in mind that these Americans did not meet most daily value micronutrient needs, which we consider woefully low to start with. Daily value needs to be revised and most minimum micronutrients need to be increased across the board.

This is why supplementation is necessary to augment daily micronutrient needs.
