The US Population + Vitamin Deficiencies

Look to the person on your right. Now look to the person on your left. Chances are, all 3 of you have some type of vitamin deficiency – But you’re not alone. 92% of the entire US population, regardless of gender, lifestyle, or socioeconomic standing, has some type of vitamin deficiency.

9 out of 10 Amerians are deficient in Potassium, 7 out of 10 are low in calcium, and 8 out of 10 are lacking Vitamin E. More than half of Americans struggle to obtain adequate levels of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and magnesium. Where’d we go so wrong?

In no particular order – lifestyle changes have led to more sedentary adults and children. Our food is more processed than ever before, and even when we eat fruits and veggies, those become more zapped of nutrients by the day thanks to industrial farming practices and soil quality. We have access to more supplementation than ever before, but that obviously hasn’t solved the issue at hand. Is there a way to fix this?
