Europeans Lacking Micronutrients

Europeans Lacking Micronutrients An analysis of 17 different micronutrients in the diets of people in Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain and the UK found deficiencies in both sexes and across all age groups. The study, which compared recent data from dietary surveys and was published in the British Journal of Nutrition, cited low intake of iron, calcium, zinc and folic acid along with vitamins B1, B2, B6 and D.

True Strength Moment: The study also found low consumption of vegetables and fruits along with higher consumption of meats and prepared foods. Eating a rainbow of different colored fruits and vegetables can go a long way toward improving micronutrient intake, and a high-potency multivitamin can help fill gaps in daily nutrient intake.
