This huge study of 6,814 Americans between the ages of 45 and 84, found that, despite the affluence of western culture, we still may not be getting our basic daily allowance of crucial nutrients. The study found a strong correlation between taking supplements and meeting the RDA's. . . .  Americans are more likely to get the RDA of calcium, magnesium and vitamin C if they take supplements, but, even then, many are still at risk of not getting enough calcium and magnesium. This study clearly points to the need for better diet and to the importance of taking an adequate dose of high quality vitamins and minerals.
