New Study Links Supplement Usage with Reduced Health Care Costs, Improved Health
Make Sure Your Legislators and Local Media Hear the Good News

You may have already heard about a new study just released that links dietary supplements with improved health and reduced health care costs by the billions of dollars. Too often, however, the consumer news media sends a negative message or minimizes the good news about the benefits of dietary supplements. Be assured that we’re doing all we can to make sure that the good news about this study gets across to media, lawmakers and consumers. Now we need your help to make sure that your legislators and local media know how important this study is to constituents and consumers like you.

The study, commissioned by the Dietary Supplement Education Alliance (DSEA) and conducted by The Lewin Group, found that the five selected dietary supplements – calcium, folic acid, omega-3 fatty acids, glucosamine and saw palmetto have the potential to positively affect health status and significantly reduce health care costs. Just two of these supplements, calcium and folic acid, if taken regularly, could save Americans $15 billion over a five-year period if taken regularly.
