Vitamin Deficiency Is the New Normal


Some disturbing news was released in the United Kingdom that likely affects the rest of us in the West and all those worldwide who consume foods associated with the Western pattern diet. According to a survey released by England’s National Health Service, nearly seventy-five percent of the working adults aren’t getting their recommended daily allotment of vitamins and minerals. And, sadly, ninety percent of children aren’t acquiring them either. It seems, in fact, that vitamin deficiency is the new normal.

The AIM Companies provides a variety of whole-food juice concentrates and nutritional supplements to help you achieve your daily nutritional requirements. Here’s a vitamin-by-vitamin breakdown of the survey’s findings. The recommended daily intake for a vitamin or nutrient may vary from government to government, just keep that in mind.
