Episode: Diversity and Inclusion is Complex: Learn How the Dietary Supplement Industry Can Get it Right
As an industry, why is the dietary supplement health promise not resonating across all races and ethnicities? We know from a study published by the academic journal Nutrients that the use of dietary supplements significantly increased nutrient intakes and decreased the percent population with inadequate intakes for most nutrients in all race/ethnic population subgroups. Meanwhile when it comes to the use rates of among race/ethnic population subgroups, only 40.7% of Non-Hispanic-blacks, 36.6% of Hispanics, 53.6% of Non-Hispanic Asians versus 61.1% of Non-Hispanic-whites use dietary supplements. Clearly, there’s a disconnect.
