Scientific Rationale Vita-lea
According to the American Medical Association, daily multivitamin use is prudent because suboptimal intakes of some nutrients raise the risk for nutritional deficiencies, and inadequate intakes are common in the population. Analyses of four National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES) by researchers from the National Center for Health Statistics indicate that Americans are increasingly consuming more fast and processed foods—a dietary pattern associated with lower intake of vitamins A, B6, folate, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc and trace minerals. All age groups still fall far short of meeting recommended intakes of fruits and vegetables, which are important sources of beta carotene, vitamin C, antioxidant phytonutrients, fiber and other nutrients. Shaklee Vita-Lea supports good health by compensating for nutrient shortfalls and providing safe, optimal levels of essential vitamins and minerals.
