It is well established that good nutrition promotes health, while nutritional deficiencies can lead to many chronic diseases, yet many people underestimate the importance of achieving proper levels of micronutrients each day. For the human body to complete all the tasks it has in a normal day, it must be given a wide and complex variety of vital micronutrients. Micronutrients play a role in strengthening immune function; converting food into energy; detoxifying chemicals and medications, manufacturing neurotransmitters, hormones, and other key signaling molecules in the body; and maintaining tissue repair and cell regeneration. Becoming deficient in any one of these essential vitamins or minerals can create a breakdown metabolic processes that safeguard health.
Comprehensive studies conducted by the USDA have revealed the American diet lacks micronutrients. Nutritional deficiencies may be caused by poor nutrient levels in the soil, food transport and storage methods, and nutrient-depleting food processing techniques. In addition, deficiencies can also be caused by highly processed and refined foods, food additives, medications, alcohol consumption, smoking, heavy metal exposure and high stress levels. Whatever the reason, nutrient deficiencies exist in a substantial portion of the U.S. population and for select nutrients, more than 80% of Americans consume less than the recommended daily allowance (RDA). [1,2] Although recommended nutrient intakes (e.g., %DV, DRIs, EARs, RDAs) have been established as minimum guidelines for healthy individuals, these guidelines were not designed to address the micronutrient needs of all individuals, especially those with chronic health concerns. While these guidelines can help prevent a severe nutrient deficiency, standards such as the RDA are not a reflection of optimal daily intake. For these reasons, a daily multivitamin is a prudent choice for most individuals. Alpha Base is a superior multivitamin designed to support the ideal daily intake of vitamins and minerals by providing a high quality source of nutrients in their most bioavailable forms.
