Most Americans, adults and children alike, just aren’t getting their vitamins and minerals. According to the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, a substantial number of us fail to consume recommended levels of essential nutrients from diet alone.¹ In one analysis of 70 individuals, 3 to 15 of these nutrients were missing from every diet, including those of athletes, who surprisingly exhibited some of the greatest deficiencies.²
That’s a problem. The list of under-consumed nutrients include vitamins A, D, E, and C, folate, calcium, and zinc — deficiencies of which have been associated with a variety of health issues, including chronic diseases.³ Our diets are seriously lacking. To fill that nutrient gap, a multivitamin supplement can be extremely effective. Not in place of your diet, but in support of it.
THRUit™ offers multivitamin supplements for both adults and children, filling those nutritional gaps. Available in fruit-flavored gummies, they’re designed to work alongside your diet to give the body what it needs. Thoughtfully developed, these daily multivitamins include vitamins A, C, D, E, B-6, B-12, folate, biotin, pantothenic acid, iodine, sodium, and zinc. They can also supplement the nutrition of those with specialized diets or food sensitivities.
It’s an effective way of getting those essential nutrients when our diets alone aren’t checking off those boxes.
Talk with your doctor about the advisability of vitamins and nutrients.
