A balanced diet that includes essential and beneficial nutrients as well as other factors is vital for good health. We’re encouraged to eat well by our family as we grow, during our education and consistently throughout life. Although, research shows that actual dietary intake often falls short of the recommended daily intake.
The reasons for this are simple: busy lives, food preferences or dislikes, sometimes a seasonal lack of choice or even budgetary constraints. Other explanations are more complex: it’s surprising how many children and adults have dietary challenges due to a range of factors. Kids who are fussy eaters, adults with celiac or gluten intolerance, vegans and vegetarians, or seniors whose needs change as they age.
New Zealand and Australian populations have nine very common nutritional deficiencies that span almost all life stages, from young children to seniors: – Vitamin D – Calcium – Iron – Zinc – Omega 3 – Vitamin B12 – Iodine – Folate – Selenium
Filling the nutrition gap is essential, as it enables growth and development for the young; energy and metabolic support for adults; and of course good health for all.
Ideally, everyone’s dietary nutrition comes from whole and less processed foods. But when that’s not readily available or suitable, Zeapure VitaScoop is a great choice to fill the gap.
