Research is increasingly showing that supplementary micronutrients improve clinical outcomes for hospital patients in intensive care units.
A study published in 2019 found that in 12 trials involving 1766 patients, the administration of vitamin C shortened the length of stays in intensive care units.
Research published in 2013 similarly demonstrated that supplementary micronutrients can cut the length of hospital stays, decrease costs, and reduce the chance of readmissions. Impressively, the researchers found that supplement use reduced the average length of hospital stays by over 2 days and the average cost by more than $4,700.
At national levels, research shows that tens of billions could be saved even by something as simple as making sure a population gets adequate intakes of vitamin D. A review published in 2010 found that ensuring people in Germany get adequate intakes of vitamin D could save that country around €37 billion ($44 billion) a year in healthcare costs.
