A new economic report shows that taking specific dietary supplements can provide significant individual and societal healthcare savings by reducing the number of hospitalizations and other costly medical events associated with chronic diseases. The report looked at eight dietary supplement regimens and four conditions in a targeted population of U.S. adults 55+ who have the specific conditions or are at high risk for the disease.
