Jamieson Essentials Guide
We all do our best to make healthy choices for our own well-being, and that of our families. But, the reality is that not only does our modern, hectic lifestyles make it difficult to keep our health and wellness routines on track, but finding the right health solutions can be confusing.
That’s why our experienced team of scientists and experts in nutrition have done the hard work for you by identifying the top supplements for better health. They’ve studied the latest research and understanding of how the average Canadian actually eats and behaves to simplify the supplement aisle by narrowing it down to four products Canadians could benefit from taking as a foundation for healthier living.
About Jamieson Essentials™
Jamieson Essentials™ is a lineup of four natural health products that can help you get the key nutrients necessary for overall good health.
Although nutrition plays a fundamental role in contributing to a healthy lifestyle, 60% of Canadians aren’t getting all the essential nutrients they need from their diet alone. To help close the gap, Jamieson 100% Complete Multivitamin for Adults is an easy way for individuals to meet their daily vitamin needs, as recommended by Health Canada.
40% of Canadians aren’t getting enough omega-3s from diet alone, which puts them at an increased risk of heart disease. New Extra Strength Omega-3 delivers an extra boost of omega-3 fats to support cardiovascular health, all without any fishy aftertaste or burp back.
20 million Canadians suffer from digestive health issues every year. Probiotics play an important role in overall digestive and immune health, as they help to reduce symptoms such as bloating, and aid in proper digestion and regularity. Jamieson Probiotic 10 Billion is a one-a-day way to promote optimal digestive balance.
Two-thirds of Canadians aren’t getting sufficient quantities of vitamin D to prevent major diseases. A fat-soluble nutrient, vitamin D plays a key role in the maintenance of good health and helps support a healthy immune system. It also helps the body absorb calcium to build strong bones and teeth. Taking Jamieson Vitamin D 1,000 IU is an easy way to get your daily dose. If you are taking a Jamieson Vitamin D supplement in combination with the 100% Complete Multivitamin as part of the Jamieson Essentials program, consider taking Jamieson Vitamin D 400 IU to meet Health Canada’s recommendation for daily vitamin D intake.
Health Canada recommends a minimum and maximum intake for vitamins, and anywhere in that range is beneficial and safe. At 600 IU per day, vitamin D plays a key role in maintaining good health and supporting the absorption of calcium to build strong bones and teeth. At 1,000 IU or more per day (within the Health Canada maximum of 4,000 IU daily), research has shown that vitamin D can play a role in preventing major diseases.
Jamieson Essentials™ are meant to help protect and build a foundation for good health, and not to replace any programs designed specifically for you. Always consult with your healthcare practitioner to find out what supplements will best help you to meet your personal health and wellness needs and goals.
