Are You Missing Beneficial Nutrients In Your Diet?

Healthy aging support may begin with more than just vitamins and minerals. Studies have found that high consumption of plant-based foods which are rich in beneficial phytonutrients, as well as essential vitamins and minerals is associated with better health and longevity.1-3 But according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 76% of the total US population does not meet recommended daily fruit intake and 87% do not meet recommended daily vegetable consumption.4 Furthermore, the latest re-examination of data from the 2001-2008 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) revealed that over 40% of US adults had inadequate intakes of magnesium and vitamins A, C, D, and E.5

Discover the many benefits of phytonutrients. Scientists continue to uncover the many benefits of phytonutrients (e.g., resveratrol, lutein, lycopene, citrus bioflavonoids, epigallocatechin gallate). Phytonutrients work individually to support different health functions, such as enhancing cell-to-cell communication in favor of "healthy" signals to help the body run the way it should and protecting cells from oxidative stress that can increase with age, pollutants, and unhealthy lifestyle habits. Phytonutrients are also believed to work synergistically for other potential collective benefits, which is why leading health organizations recommend eating a variety of plant-based food to increase phytonutrient diversity.

Go beyond traditional multivitamin/minerals. A traditional multivitamin/mineral (MVM) may fall short of forward-thinking support to complement healthy eating habits to promote wellness and healthy aging. Phytonutrients can also be provided in supplement form when fruit and vegetable intake is less than optimal.

Make an appointment to learn more about daily supplementation with a smart combination of phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals that provides a breakthrough approach to daily nutrition and healthy aging.
