Trends in use of vitamin and mineral supplements in the United States from 1987 to 2000 including usage of non-vitamin/non-mineral supplements in 2000 the 1987, 1992 and 2000 National Health Interview Surveys



Trends in use of vitamin and mineral supplements in the United States from 1987 to 2000 including usage of non-vitamin/non-mineral supplements in 2000 the 1987, 1992 and 2000 National Health Interview Surveys



FASEB Journal 17(4-5): Abstract No 437 4, March



Data from the 1987, 1992, and 2000 NHIS Cancer Control Topical Module show that the percent of adults who use vitamin and mineral supplements (VMS) daily increased from 23.2% to 23.7% to 33.9%, respectively. This pattern across the 3 NHIS surveys was consistent for men, all race/ethnic groups and adults < 45 years. For women and those > 45 years the percent taking VMS daily did not consistently increase over this time period. For individual VMS queried, there was an increase in the percent of daily users from 1987 to 1992 to 2000 for multivitamins, vitamin A, and vitamin E, with an overall increase of 10.5, 1.2 and 7.3 percentage points (pp), respectively, from 1987 to 2000. Increases in the daily use of vitamin C (3.3 pp) and calcium (6.1 pp) only occurred between 1992 and 2000. For the first time, the 2000 NHIS queried the use of herbal and botanical supplements (HBS). These data show that 14.5% of respondents reported using HBS some time in the past year and that 6.0% reported using HBS daily. In conclusion, the increasing use of VMS over time and the notable prevalence of HBS use in 2000 indicate the continued need to: 1.) monitor the use of all types of dietary supplements in the US population for purposes of dietary surveillance and 2.) query dietary supplement use among respondents in nutritional epidemiological studies to assess the possible relationships between specific nutrients/dietary constituents and disease outcomes.
