Multiple Advantages – ONE Solution

Q1. Why should someone take a multiple?In today’s chaotic world, many of us rely on fast and processed foods and a not-so-well-balanced diet. Therefore, not surprisingly, we do not get the daily recommended allowance of vitamins and minerals that are required for optimal health and wellness. Both vitamins and minerals are fundamental in the growth, development, metabolism, maintenance and repair of tissues, coenzyme systems and general ongoing health. Because of the typically inadequate American diet, nutritional gaps are common among the general population.

Additionally, there are life stages that require more of certain micronutrients than the average diet offers (i.e., folic acid during pregnancy and vitamin B12 in the elderly population). Multivitamin and mineral formulas help to bridge these nutrient gaps in daily diets and can provide benefits to the whole body. It has even been recommended by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans that “in certain cases, fortified foods and dietary supplements may be useful in providing one or more nutrients that otherwise might be consumed in less than recommended amounts.”

Nutrients and How They Support Our Bodies

Plus, it’s not only important to get optimal levels of essential nutrients, but it’s also vital to get the right types and amounts of nutrients that address your gender-specific health and nutritional needs. It’s no secret that men and women have different nutrient needs. For example, women need fewer calories than men, but in many cases, they have higher vitamin and mineral requirements like folic acid, calcium and iron. Men tend to need more calories and nutrients that increase stamina and energy than women because they carry greater mass. So, for individuals who believe they should be getting most of their nutrients from the foods they eat every day and those nutrients should address their gender-specific health and nutritional needs, look to Bluebonnet’s Ladies’ ONE® and Men’s ONE® Whole Food-Based Multiples to fill those nutrient gaps in the daily diet and to serve as the perfect anecdote to today’s busy, stressful lifestyles.

Q2. What science and dosages should today’s multiple be based on?On May 27, 2016, the FDA published its final rules for the Nutrition Facts label for packaged foods, which also applies to supplements. These new rules reflect the current potencies based on the latest science linking diet to good health.
