Confirmed! Supplements Now Save Your Life and You Thousands in Health Expense
Are supplements worth the money?
Absolutely! My research has told me the answer is certainly yes.
There’s a reason some people would ask. For years, drug companies and even doctors have pushed the idea that taking vitamins and other supplements is a waste of time and money. Your own doctor may have scoffed at the idea that supplements can have an impact on your health.
But consider this:
Every year 530,000 American families file for bankruptcy due to medical bills. US medical bills and indebtedness are responsible for 66.5% of all American personal insolvencies. On average, Americans spend about $10,000 a year on healthcare costs. 66% of all medical debt in the US comes from one-time medical issues.
The fraction of bankruptcies caused by medical events is just 4 percent. According to a CNN Medical study of the estimated 15 million Americans who will declare bankruptcy in a given year some 60 percent of those will do so NOT because of overspending on a lavish lifestyle but because of an avalanche of overwhelming medical bills.
39% of those who have issues with medical bill payments already have employer insurance. Medical debt bankruptcy statistics show that the majority of those reporting issues with their medical bills already have some form of insurance. The majority of them, or 32%, have employer insurance, 16% have public coverage, and 7% are privately insured.
One doctor memorably told us all supplements do is create expensive urine.
But we knew better…
the biggest expense in a medical bankruptcy case?
- We were all witnesses to the recent insulin price scandal. Doctor bills are also commonly listed as the biggest expense in medical bankruptcy cases (15.1%), and so are the insurance premiums (4.1%). Let’s look at some curious facts about medical bills.
Time and again research has proven supplement skeptics wrong. I’ve seen it, read it, dug through it — at first because of my family history of heart problems. But I kept at it because I saw proof that prevention is the best medicine — and that it is the expensive drugs and treatments forced on us after we’re sick that are a waste of money.
And now there’s solution to all of that…
A report recently released by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) reveals that not only could many medical events related to chronic conditions be avoided in the first place — but billions of dollars in U.S. healthcare costs could be slashed… including what comes out of your wallet, thanks to supplements.
The role of supplements in preventive care: A “no-brainer”
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that more than 75 percent of healthcare spending in the U.S. is for people with chronic conditions. These diseases also cost the country more than $260 billion a year in lost workforce productivity.
Meanwhile, the U.S. currently invests less than three percent of total healthcare expenditures on preventive care.
But according to Dr. Andrea Wong, senior VP of scientific and regulatory affairs at CRN, “A steadily growing body of clinical research shows investing in preventive care through supplementation helps Americans avoid chronic conditions.
“Wong adds, “This strategy is what we call a no-brainer.”
According to the Supplements to Savings report, supplement use is already capturing $59 billion in healthcare cost savings. But if specific dietary supplement ingredients were more widely used, it could potentially save hundreds of billions more.”
This report is a wake-up call to American healthcare policymakers,” says Michael Meirovitz, CRN’s director of government relations. “We must shift our public policy and healthcare spending priorities so American taxpayers can have better health — and pay less for it.”
Better health for less: Here is the proof
The report reviewed the evidence on a handful of dietary supplements among people at high risk for certain conditions — and concluded: Supplementing can reduce direct and indirect medical costs from several chronic conditions.
In other words, supplementing has enough of a health impact that it cuts down on visits to physician’s offices, hospitals, ERs and procedures, treatments and prescription medications, as well.
Here’s what they found, specifically…
* Vitamin D and Calcium:
A preventive regimen of calcium and vitamin D in populations at high risk of osteoporosis could prevent 361,507 avoidable medical events.
This amounts to yearly net savings of $179.32 billion, with an additional $155.41 billion in savings estimated to be taking place among high-risk Americans already taking these supplements.
If the high-risk population for irritable bowel syndrome took preventive levels of probiotics, over 397 million hours of missed work would be prevented.
That’s yearly savings of $110.22 billion on top of the $94.83 billion taking place among those already taking probiotics.
* Vitamins B6, B9 and B12:
If those at high risk of cognitive decline supplement these B vitamins at preventive levels, 270,642 avoidable medical events would be prevented.
This would result in net savings of $109.93 billion annually. Those at high risk of cognitive decline already supplementing with vitamins B6, B9 and B12 are already generating estimated net savings of $97.64 billion per year.
* Vitamin K2, omega-3s, magnesium and dietary fiber:
If the high-risk population for coronary artery disease takes these four supplements at a preventive level, it could prevent between 81,236 and 301,539 avoidable medical events.
This amounts to yearly net savings of between $13.3 billion and $85.3 billion. Savings of between $12.66 billion and $83.84 billion is estimated to be occurring in the target population already taking these supplements.
If the target population for childhood cognitive development disorders was to take a preventive dose of choline, it would prevent an estimated 57,128 avoidable medical events and result in $1.08 billion in net savings per year.
The high-risk population already taking choline is projected to be generating annual savings of $1.07 billion.
* Lutein and zeaxanthin:
If populations at high risk for age-related macular degeneration were to take these two supplements at preventive intake levels, 21,718 avoidable medical events would be prevented, amounting to annual savings of $959.2 million.
That’s in addition to the $942.7 million in savings already taking place among those taking lutein and zeaxanthin at recommended dosages.
Should you Be Taking Supplements?
Health-wise and penny-wise: Supplements are effective.
Just so you know, the creators of the report did their homework — and not just the math…
To determine the health care cost savings, they first had to determine the risk reduction metric for each of the supplements assessed.
That meant collecting a comprehensive set of studies that represented the “totality of evidence of efficacy” for a given dietary supplement’s effects on the relative risk of specific disease events.
- A review of the scientific literature related to the given chronic disease and the dietary supplement of interest.
- Identification of a representative set of qualified studies that investigated a causal relationship between supplement intake and the incidence of specific health conditions of interest.
- Weighting and aggregation of the qualified study findings to determine an overall expected impact of dietary supplement intervention on disease event occurrence.
It wouldn’t be a reach to say that this may have been the most comprehensive study to date on the effectiveness of supplements — health-wise and penny-wise.
Does this mean we’ll start hearing less from the supplement naysayers? I doubt it…There’s too much money to be made in treating sick people than in keeping them well. And that’s exactly why they’ll keep warning you off of supplements.
