While it is true that we can live without supplementing vitamins and minerals, there are extenuating circumstances that make it important in the modern world - such as pollution, increased stress, longer working hours, which in turn prevents shopping for good nutritious foods, and many other factors.
For scientific evidence of importance of supplemental vitamins and minerals, see below.
Researchers from Memorial University (Newfoundland) found that a dietary supplement containing 18 vitamins, minerals, and trace elements helped healthy men and women age 65 and over to improve their short-term memory, problem-solving ability, abstract thinking, and attention span.
The supplement also improved immunity, reducing the rate of infection-related illness by more than 50% (as compared to those who did not take it).
This study demonstrates that people who take a daily multivitamin, multimineral supplement enhance their ability to live independently and without major disability. The researchers also calculated that for every $1 US spent on the supplement, $28 US could be saved in healthcare costs by preventing or delaying illness and functional decline.
In addition, supplementation of vitamins and minerals helps skin health, along with using Bare Skin Care products. Additional vitamins and minerals keep the skin healthy and plumped out, preventing the occurrence of wrinkles.
