Nutrisystem Review

by Emily Jacob (2019-03-07)

Current research has also Nutrisystem shown that as a result of the low-fat diet that has swept this nation for several generations, only about 8 percent of men and 2.4 percent of women in the U.S., regardless of smoking status, have an adequate intake of vitamin E. Some of the best sources of vitamin E in the American diet are found in food sources such as nuts, seeds, and certain types of cooking oils. Most people have headed the medical communities recommendations of scaling back on these types of foods for better health. Other sources of vitamin E can be found in foods such as blueberries, olives, and papayas. In the OSU research study, all participants were asked to reduce their daily intake of fruits and vegetables for 3 months before the study. Low levels of vitamin C was predetermined to be the basic foundation for implementing vitamin C supplements at 1,000 mg. per day for some, and a placebo for others. Those who received the vitamin C supplements had up to a 45 percent reduced incidence of vitamin E disappearance, about the same as a non-smoker. But the smokers who received the placebo were not only still deficient in vitamin C, but lost gamma vitamin E 25 percent faster than a non-smoker, and alpha-vitamin E about 45 percent faster. In practice most nutritional experts tend to agree that they believe that these nutrients need to be present long-term, and consistently, before they can be successful. They believe they are less successful, and of little or no benefit when studied in isolation or in individuals with an existing health condition.
