Vitamins and
Supplements
People are taking them, but should they be?
ERIC HUSSAR, MD,
Family Physician in Lancaster County
Y
ears ago, an advertisement was aired featuring a gray-haired
man making the comment, " I read about a study recently
where they were using Centrum Silver in a study on the
health benefits of multivitamins. And I figured, if Centrum
Silver was good enough for the study, then it's good enough for me. "
The man seemed nice enough, and healthy appearing, but a key fact
was left out of the commercial: the actual results of the study.
Statistics suggest that since 2015 Americans are spending $30
billion or more per year on vitamins and nutritional supplements. A
2019 study estimated 77 percent of Americans are engaged in using
them. We live in a culture where we can frequently get what we
want both fast and easily, and Americans are often willing to pay the
price to make that happen. For some, taking a supplement could be
their alternative to working hard to eat healthier and exercise more.
Others adopt the theoretical reasoning that taking a multivitamin
or any individual vitamins " must be good for me since they are what
my body needs. "
