General Wellness

Active living and healthy aging make some strong nutritional demands. But modern nutrition often fails to provide enough for the optimal health. Fast food lifestyles may contribute to a lower intake of health-promoting nutrients, while contributing to “over-nourishment” of bad fats, sugars, and energy intake that can negatively influence health. The aging process, genetic variations, and gastrointestinal health also influence the body’s ability to absorb nutrients.

• Over 3 in 5 U.S. adults do not take a daily multivitamin.
• More than 3 in 5 adults do not take an omega-3 supplement.
• Only 1 in 3 U.S. adults consumes 2+ servings of fruit daily.
• Just 1 in 4 American adults eat 3 or more servings of vegetables daily.
• NHANES data suggests that many older adults don’t get enough nutrients—including folate, zinc, magnesium, and vitamins A, B6, and C—from food alone.

How Supplements Help Meet Nutritional Needs

While food is the optimal source, nutritional supplements may be strategically recommended to help fill dietary gaps or meet special requirements for key nutrients. But not all supplements contain active ingredients or dosages supported by solid science. And some may contain ingredients with lower bioavailability, higher allergen potential, or contaminants. All of which jeopardize program success and increase the risk for adverse events and additional health complaints.

Foundation Nutrition Support for Wellness and Active Living

Dr. Sherman recommends many science-based, natural formulas that provide quality support for foundation nutrition. Including daily multivitamin/mineral formulas to promote overall health and single nutrient formulas for both general and targeted applications.
