the number one reason people do not take their vitamins ~ they forget
Northridge, CA (PRWEB) October 10, 2010
A recent online survey conducted by Nature Made vitaminID.com found that the main reason people don’t take their vitamins – they forget. It’s hard to remember to take vitamins every day. With everything else going on in life, kids, school, jobs, politics, not a lot of room is left in most peoples lives. But, the only way the vitamins will work is if people actually take them. Nature Made vitaminID.com is helping the American consumers by developing a system to help clarify and encourage vitamin use. By creating a unique website they are able to give a person a vitamin recommendation. The company has also developed a machine that packs each order individually, ensuring people get exactly what they want and need in their daily vitamin packs.
"Sticking to a vitamin regimen, like any other lifestyle change such as eating right and exercise, requires persistency and consistency. " states Lora Paelicke, MS, RD at vitaminID.com. "The return on investment with the purchase of your dietary supplements will not be realized if you do not take the product every day. Your body will not benefit from them if you only take them once in awhile." The US has shown a rise in vitamin consumption based on AC Nielsen data, the rate of compliance is down. The importance of compliance is a major concern for Dieticians. Lora explains, "if you miss a few doses, your body may not be up to par with the nutrient levels it needs daily to function at its best. Taking your daily vitamin pack is an important step towards overall health and well-being. It is difficult to assess if you are getting the nutrients you need daily from your diet alone. Taking dietary supplements will serve as nutritional insurance that will provide you with key nutrients and health benefits. It is important to take your supplements daily and make it part of a healthy lifestyle change that also includes improving your diet and being active. In addition to eating healthier foods, avoiding excess calories, striving to maintain a healthy weight, consistent exercise (approved by your doctor), using dietary supplements to optimize nutrient intake is also part of a healthy lifestyle.
