Common Nutrient Deficiencies

While everyone agrees that it is best to get your daily amount of nutrients from food, we realize that many people find that difficult to do. It takes a good deal of dedication to, first, know what amounts of nutrients you need every day, and, second, actually consume those foods.

Also, there actually are a few nutrients that are very difficult to get enough of in food (Vitamin D, for example).

These are the reasons that supplements can play an important role in maintaining good health.
