Study: More than half of U.S. adults over 20 take vitamins

14 Apr

A new government study proves that over 50% of adults age 20 and older consume vitamins or other dietary pills.
The percentage of people that took a minimum of at least one dietary supplement increased to 53% in 2006. In 1994 the percentage was only 42%. About 40% of people were taking Multivitamins/multiminerals in 2006, which is the type that taken the most frequently.
“The majority of dietary supplement users report using them every day over the past 30 days,” says Jaime Gahche, nutritional researcher with the National Center for Health Statistics, part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The results of this research study are from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Thousands of people are interviewed in order to find more accurate results.
