A new survey has found that use of dietary supplements among adults in the United States increased by 10 percent over the past decade. The data shows that three-quarters of all adults in the country now use supplements.
Across the world, there is a growing understanding that nutritional and Cellular Medicine approaches are effective in preventing diseases. The fact that the vast majority of adults in the United States now use dietary supplements is a clear reflection of this.
As Dr. Aleksandra Niedzwiecki, head of the Dr. Rath Research Institute, explains on our website, vitamins are inherently safe. Derived from nature, they have been playing a life-sustaining and health-promoting role for the inhabitants of our planet for millions of years. However, this principle only applies to the natural forms of these essential substances. Therefore, the question that arises is: how much truth is there to reports of alleged risks caused by supplements?
When considering this important question, the first thing to understand is that not all supplements are the same. You may be surprised to learn that, when designing their products, many supplement manufacturers use cheap synthetic ingredients. Moreover, the vast majority do not carry out any research. Aware of this, researchers at the Dr. Rath research institute have conducted studies on a variety of micronutrient combinations that are widely used in Europe. They compared them with micronutrient combinations that were developed and tested on the basis of proper scientific research. The results of these studies speak for themselves and prove that some supplements are far more effective than others. Products containing natural ingredients and designed using the scientific principle of nutrient synergy were consistently shown by the researchers to be more effective at the cellular level.
