Studies show vitamin deficiency is a cause of chronic disease.
Vitamins are substances that the body requires but is unable to make itself, and therefore you must obtain them from your diet . Vitamin deficiencies have been shown to be the cause of many chronic diseases such as:
- cardiovascular disease
Recent studies suggest that most people do not consume an optimal amount of vitamins from the normal US diet alone. Dr Hoffman recommends that all adults take good quality vitamin supplements on a daily basis, to promote health. The key is understanding which vitamins you are in need of. There is no "one size fits all" daily vitamin. Each person has unique needs and it is important to meet with your doctor to better understand which supplements may help you as well as which supplements to avoid.
Fruits and vegetables are the main dietary source of many vitamins and have long been recommended for optimal health. However, surveys show that only 20-30% of the population actually consumes the suggested daily servings that will result in the health benefits.
There are a variety of tests and clinical assessment tools available to determine if you are vitamin deficient. It is recommended that you consult with your Doctor at Tru Health Medicine regarding regular optimal vitamin intake.
