Multivitamins Can Safely Improve Nutrient Supply and Overcome Problems of Inadequacy

multiple vitaminA new review paper has found that a multivitamin/minerals supplement taken daily can help fill nutrient deficiencies without any concern for long-term safety issues.

Randomized and controlled studies where participants supplemented with at least nine vitamins and 3 minerals at 100% of the RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance) were reviewed and researchers concluded that long term use of these MVM for over 10 years and more was safe.

Many Americans continue to fall short of reaching the Estimated Average Requirement (EAR) for many key nutrients even though there has been potential to fill these nutritional gaps.  According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) data 31% of individual fall below the EAR for Vitamin C, 35% for Vitamin A, 39% for Calcium, 46% for Magnesium, 67% for Vitamin E and 74% for Vitamin D.  9 nutrients are listed as shortfall nutrients: Vitamins A,D,E and C, Potassium, Dietary Fiber, Choline, Magnesium and Calcium.  4 nutrients are listed as “Nutrients of Public Health Concern: Vitamin D, Dietary Fiber, Potassium and Calcium.

Researchers stressed more consumer education is needed even among healthcare practitioners.  Even with a healthy diet, nutrient gaps may occur.  Supplementing with a multivitamin/mineral supplement has been shown to reduce these gaps and improve nutritional status measures.  Overcoming these nutritional gaps can aid in counteracting potential health issues that may be caused by inadequate nutritional uptake.
