Micronutrients (and supply)

Micronutrient supply

Individual requirements

Vitamins, minerals and trace elements as well as secondary plant substances are indispensable components of a healthy, balanced diet and are also being used in the Panta rhei dietary supplements.

Your nutrient requirements are determined by your lifestyle and your lifestyle habits. They depend on age, acute or chronic diseases, exceptional stress and special living situations, like e.g. pregnancy.

Certain groups of persons may be threatened by an insufficient micronutrient supply if one or more of the following risk factors apply:

  •  Nicotine consumption
  •  Increased alcohol consumption
  •  Indigestions
  •  Vegan diet
  •  Radical diets
  •  Unbalanced diet
  •  Constant drug intake
  •  Too little sun exposure
  •  Sleep deficit
  •  Allergies and intolerances
     

Micronutrient deficiency

In 2008, the Max Rubner Institute conducted and published a National Consumption Study (NVS II) on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection, showing, how healthy we Germans eat.

Despite food diversity and food surplus, some women and men still do not reach the recommended micronutrient reference values.


Dietary behaviour in Germany

The fast-paced everyday life changes the eating habits and living conditions of each individual. Products of daily use are purchased "to go" at various shopping locations. Currywurst and fries from the snack bar around the corner serve as lunch, the baker provides your breakfast and the kiosk serves as snack supplier.

 

Did you know…?

- Only one in two really cares about diet

Young adults, men and low earners pay the least attention to their health. For every second man and every third woman the main point is just "tastiness". Only one in ten of the interviewed persons under the age of 25 states, that he/she is eating healthy consistently. Among the age 60+ seniors, four out of every ten people say that they’re eating healthy.


- Ready meals and meat are indispensable to many people

On average, half of the population eats sausage products or meat on an every day basis. Six out of ten children under the age of 25 eat ready meals at least once a week, every sixth of them even more than three times a week. On overall average, four out of ten people cosume fast food at least once or twice a week.


- Women tend to “emotional eating”

On average, German women eat healthier than men, but 40% of the women eat overly excessive when they are in a bad mood. However, this is only applies for 20% of men.


- Why Fast Food?

Half of the population says that missing time & privacy are the main reasons for the consumption of fast food.
 

- Eating is a side issue

One in every three people, no matter if male or female, consumes TV or internet while eating. Age plays a major role here. – The younger people are, the more likely do they eat with the fork in one hand and the smartphone in the other hand while watching TV at the same time.


- food "to go" is IN

The to-go principle is especially hip among young adults and high-income earners. Every third person under 25 years of age eats something "on their hands" at least three times a week.
 

- A healthy diet is difficult to combine with today's working environment

Only one in two German employed persons can eat in a relaxed setting during the break. One third complains that a balanced and healthy diet is simply impossible during working hours, since the time (according to four out of ten peope) and a sufficient choice (according to every third person) is not given.


- The chronically ill eat hardly healthier than healthy people

People who suffer from chronic diseases such as cardiovascular problems or metabolic disorders eat barely healthier than the rest of the population.
