Study: Physicians and Nurses Take Dietary Supplements

The landmark "Life...supplemented" Healthcare Professionals (HCP) Impact Study found more than three quarters of U.S. physicians (79 percent) and nurses (82 percent) recommend dietary supplements to their patients.

The study also shows an almost equal number - 72 percent of physicians and 89 percent of nurses - personally use vitamin, mineral, herbal and other supplements either regularly, occasionally or seasonally, which is a higher percentage than the 68 percent (1) of adults who report they take nutritional or dietary supplements.
