Our bodies create their own supply of antioxidants, but our modern lifestyle requires more than the body produces.
NIH – National Institute of Health – National Center for Biotechnology Information – Dietary intake and nutritional status of US adult marijuana users study
Objectives: This study examined dietary intakes and nutritional status of marijuana users and non-current marijuana users in US adults aged 20 to 59 year
Methods: We used data from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III), 1988-1994. Information on self-reported drug use, including marijuana, was obtained as part of the NHANES III physical examination component. Nutritional status was assessed using height and weight, and blood biochemistries. Dietary intake was assessed using a 24-hour recall and a food-frequency questionnaire.
Results: Among adults 20-59 years of age, 45% reported ever having used marijuana in their lifetime. A total of 8.7% reported using marijuana in the past month. Current marijuana users had higher intakes of energy and nutrients than non-current marijuana users; however, body mass index (BMI) was slightly lower. We found higher cigarette-smoking rates and higher consumption of sodas and alcohol, specifically beer, among marijuana users than among non-current marijuana users. Marijuana users also consumed more sodium, fewer fruits, and more pork, cheese, and salty snacks. Nutritional status, using indicators of serum nutrients, serum albumin, haematocrit and haemoglobin, was similar between marijuana users and non-current marijuana users. Serum carotenoid levels were lower among marijuana users, independent of cigarette smoking.
Conclusion: Dietary intake was different among marijuana users than among non-current marijuana users. Although overall nutritional status was similar, serum carotenoid levels were lower in marijuana users. The long-term health effects of these differences in marijuana users deserve careful consideration in future research.
Most of us don’t follow a perfectly balanced diet all the time. We simply have too much to do and too little time in our busy schedules, right?
Immune support is absolutely crucial in today’s world. Vejovis 365 contains immune-supporting elements such as zinc, folic acid, selenium, and vitamins C, D, B6, A, and E.
The recommended form of vitamin D is vitamin D3 or cholecalciferol. This is the natural form of vitamin D that your body makes from sunlight. Vitamin D3 can help boost immunity, prevent bone and hair loss, and more.
This vitamin promotes healthy nerves and blood cells, supports energy levels, and more. It’s best to choose a multivitamin that contains B-12 as methylcobalamin (or methyl-B12), because it is shown to be the most easily absorbed by our bodies.
Zinc helps maintain a healthy immune system, ward off illness at the first sign of symptoms, supports wound healing, and much more. It’s generally found to be lower in elderly adults and from anyone suffering from high levels of stress, making it essential in any multivitamin.
It’s believed that at least 40% of American adults don’t get enough calcium from diet alone – That’s why it’s so important to make sure it’s listed on your multivitamin label (especially for women, who are at a statistically higher risk for early bone density loss).
Folic Acid (or Folate)
Especially for pregnant women or women planning to become pregnant, folic acid has many health benefits, including promoting healthy inflammatory responses to improving mood, hair, skin, and nail quality.
An essential B-complex vitamin, this must-have supports healthy hair, skin, and nails, and helps maintain a healthy nervous system, among many other benefits.
The well-known “superhero of immunity,” vitamin C is involved in many important bodily functions and is a powerful antioxidant that supports the body’s production of collagen, absorption of iron, and much more!
This vitamin is essential for healthy skin, a strong immune system, and everyday health, It has antioxidant properties that help cells regenerate.
