While vitamin D is important, it is not the only nutrient or strategy that we use to improve our health and prevent disease.
GrassrootsHealth is in the process of expanding our research and education to other nutrients and you will reap the benefits. Scientifically-based information about other nutrients will be developed, and you will have opportunities to be part of more at-home testing and investigation to help you better track your own health profile.
As we move towards reporting on more nutrients, we wanted to review what you told us was important to you. Back in June of this year we asked you, our D*action participants, what nutrients you were interested in, and what health conditions you were interested in preventing.
We also did some research to find out what is happening in the market. We used data from ConsumerLab.com, whose mission is to identify the best quality health and nutritional products through independent testing. Every year they survey over 10,000 people who take supplements to identify trends. Their survey (2012) had respondents who were predominantly over 45 years of age (87%), and female (55%). On average, the respondents take 7 different supplements daily.
