Germany Suffers From Vitamin Deficiency

In Germany, almost all people suffering under a more or less severe vitamin deficiency, today informed Courtney Hardy from the center for nourishing communication and health journalism (CEC) in Cologne, and encourages the population to change the diet. With his new book, "Vitamin-light" is choosing the right vitamin-rich food especially easy. Everyone should check their vitamin supply and improve if necessary by a change in diet or the deliberate ingestion of dietary supplements, calls the well-known nutrition expert Müller Nothmann. From toddlers to senior people in Germany too little vitamin D, pantothenic acid and folic acid lead. In addition, almost all adults in Germany suffer from a biotin deficiency. Even the vitamin E intake, it is not well-ordered, evaluates Mueller Nothmann from various dietary studies. Only vitamin C, pyridoxine and riboflavin intake meets the recommendations of the German Societyfor Nutrition (DGE) Me eV it is not surprising that people in Germany receive too few vitamins, emphasizes medicine journalist Courtney Hardy, which points to the general malnutrition. It is appalling that just two percent, only one in fifty people in Germany consume enough vegetables and fruit. That includes fast food, convenience foods, sugared soft drinks and alcoholic beverages to have daily diet, criticized Mueller Nothmann. Many chronic diseases increase such as diabetes mellitus, or inflammatory disease similar to certain medications (particularly the pill), the vitamin requirement. Of course, hardly anyone in Germany is suffering under the classical vitamin deficiency diseases, scurvy, rickets, pellagra, or Berberi, says Sven-David Müller Nothmann, chairman of the German center of excellence to promote health and dietetics, emphatically. But a vitamin intake that is considerably below the recommendations, it is not beneficial to the organism. TheFolic acid intake is generally 50 percent below DGE recommendations. To improve the vitamin supply a whole, people should eat according to Sven-David Müller Nothmann more fresh and raw and cooked vegetables. In addition, marine fish, high-quality vegetable oils such as canola oil and nuts and seeds important. But even low-fat meat is an important component of a healthy diet that is low-fat milk and dairy products through its curvature. To improve the folic acid supply should, in addition to leaf green leafy vegetable with folic acid-enriched table salt in the kitchen are used, we recommend Mueller Nothmann. Is not understandable for me again, why warn nutrition organizations and sucked-called experts in statements or writings against dietary supplements only in the last sentence and point out that these are useful in special situations and specific needs of states, said Mueller Nothmann. Almost all people have either specialRequirements states or are in special situations. Against this background, warning, and the subsequent statement is not understandable. Also nutritional supplements have a firm place in the health-promoting diet. Even by the term "supplement" to show in this counter products that they can not serve to replace a healthy diet. Otherwise, they would indeed "food substitutes are called. The alleged by consumer advocates and intractable nutritional experts repeatedly raised think that vitamins are useless and dangerous, and the population was approaching it as an excuse for an unhealthy behavior that has long since been disproved by studies. A study published in the Ernährungsumschau staff by Ulbricht and clearly shows that already rely on health-food supplements, while people who are not interested in practice for their diet, taking them do not.A vitamin overdose is possible through dietary supplements is also not because the legislature has defined the composition and dosage of suchproducts and reviewed. Finally, Mueller Nothmann points out that in addition to the vitamin supply in Germany, the supply of minerals – ie the volume and trace elements – do not always sufficient. The new vitamin traffic by Sven-David Müller Nothmann makes an ideal vitamin supply simply because it contains more than 16,000 values. Vitamin Information from the food, especially easy to reach the meeting of needs that are printed after the green by Sven-David Müller Nothmann developed traffic light principle.
