It’s a fact that good nutrition is a basis for wellness, and good nutrition usually translates into a stronger immune system and better health. An important aspect of good nutrition is micro nutrition (vitamins and minerals). Micronutrients play a role in converting food to energy; building and repairing tissues and DNA; manufacturing neurotransmitters, hormones, and other modulators in the body; breaking down and detoxifying xenobiotics and medications; and maintaining growth, reproduction, and health.
According to research by the USDA and other organizations, the American diet is lacking micronutrients. In fact, nine out of 10 Americans are missing key micronutrients. Common culprits may be food-production and storage techniques, poor food choices, and nutrient-depleting preparation methods. Whatever the cause, the bottom line is that children and adults are not consuming enough nutrient-rich food to meet all their most basic vitamin and mineral needs. What’s more, the recommended intakes are designed to meet the minimum needs of some healthy individuals; they are not designed to meet the requirements of all individuals, especially the chronically ill.
