There’s a new revolution in helping patients eat better and supplement smarter. Epidemiologic studies have found that high consumption of plant-based foods—rich in beneficial phytonutrients, as well as essential vitamins and minerals—is associated with better health and longevity. However, 76% of Americans don’t meet recommended daily fruit intake and 87% don’t meet recommended daily vegetable intake. Plus, over 40% of US adults have inadequate intakes of magnesium and vitamins A, C, D, and E. A traditional multivitamin/mineral supplement may not provide preferred daily support that complements smart eating habits and promotes wellness and healthy aging. Now there’s a growing recognition of the value of dietary phytonutrients—which help support antioxidant protection, DNA stability, and cellular communication that in turn influence metabolic pathways and body systems. And consuming an array of phytonutrients from a variety of fruits and vegetables may increase dietary value due to collective influences on health. Phytonutrients can also be provided in supplements when fruit/vegetable intake is less than optimal.
