The survey, conducted in December, asked over 2,000 U.S. adults to select (all that apply of) health and wellness habits they are committing to in 2015, and “taking vitamins” made the top five (47%), along with drinking enough water (72%); eating healthy/healthier in general (66%); getting more physically active (62%); and getting more sleep (49%). With research pointing to a real life issue of nutrient shortfalls in Americans’ diets, CRN said that this survey might be a positive indicator that people realise they are not getting all the nutrients they need from food alone. Vitamin supplements help fill in the gaps.

“With the hectic nature of our lives, we don’t always eat what we know we should eat. And while we should continue to focus on getting the healthiest diet, adding a simple multivitamin supplement presents an easy, affordable and safe way to help ensure we get the nutrients we need,” said Duffy MacKay, N.D., senior vice president, scientific and regulatory affairs, CRN.

The survey was conducted online within the United States by Harris Poll on behalf of CRN from December 8-10, 2014 among 2,021 adults ages 18 and older.
