According to the USDA, more than 92% of Americans are deficient in the essential micronutrients needed to maintain basic health
. Shockingly, this affects nearly twice as many people as heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, and diabetes combined! This makes micronutrient deficiency the most widespread and dangerous health condition of the 21st century.
Unfortunately, in our modern world we can’t just eat a well-balanced diet and get all the nutrition we need. First, our modern foods are no longer supplying us with the amount of vitamins and minerals that they did for our ancient ancestors or even our grandparents. And second, our modern lifestyles are demanding more of these scarce, yet essential micronutrients than ever before.
