DietarySupplementNews.com has the honor of sharing, Suzanne Steinbaum, DO, Director of Women’s Heart Health at the Heart and Vascular Institute at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York and a cofounder of the Global Nutrition and Health Alliance (GNHA) mission statements.
As a co-founder of the Global Nutrition and Health Alliance (GNHA), Suzanne Steinbaum, educates people around the world about optimal nutrition being incredibly important. Steinbaum encourages people to get as much of their nutrients as possible from foods. But the reality is, it is more difficult than you think to consume enough through diet alone.
According to a study conducted by the GNHA, many adults may be overestimating how healthy their diets are and should consider supplementation. The survey of 3,000 American, British and German adults found that 72 percent reported having a “healthy” diet and more than half believed they consume all the key nutrients needed through food sources alone. However, the prevalence of chronic diseases in these countries suggests respondents may be overestimating how healthy their diets are. In terms of Omega-3 and Vitamin D, the survey also found that less than a third of those polled were actively taking a supplement.
A diet rich in important nutrients, like Omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin D, is key to having a healthy heart and well-functioning cells throughout your body. Supplements aren’t a replacement for a healthy diet, but they can be important to bridge the gaps in your diet.
