1991 : A study carried out by Professor HERCBERG, Director of Research at L’INSERM, on the population of Val de Marne demonstrated that with the majority of micro-nutrients (vitamins, minerals, trace elements, essential fatty acids) the dietary intakes are lower than the RNIs. (Recommended nutritional intakes). This study highlighted in particular the major magnesium deficiency in the French population since it is estimated that 73 % of French people have a magnesium intake lower than normal in particular pregnant women and the elderly.

1998-1999 :a major national survey, the INCA survey, studied the dietary consumption of adults and children in France. It focused on the dietary consumption of 3,000 people aged 3 years and over, representative of the French population. This survey particularly revealed a deficiency in iodine especially in young girls, adult women and the over-fifties.

2000 : an Israeli study showed that diet supplements of phosphatidylserine (300mg/day) for 12 weeks improved the memory of elderly people in good health presenting cognitive problems linked to ageing.

2003 : the SU.VI.MAX study (Diet Supplements of Vitamins et Antioxidant Minerals) with the aim of following the appearances of cancer and cardiovascular diseases with a supplement of vitamins and antioxidant minerals for 8 years in 13,000 people selected. The results of the study showed that taking vitamins and antioxydant minerals in nutritional doses reduced the risk of cancer by 31% and the risk of death in men by 37%.

The EPIFER study, within the framework of the SU.VI.MAX study, showed that in France, 9 women out of 10 have iron intakes lower than the recommendations and nearly a quarter of women have iron deficiencies. The most at risk women are those who are pregnant or of child-bearing age. Men only represent 3 % of people with iron deficiencies. It therefore seems obvious that it is necessary to take measure to correct and prevent these deficiencies, especially through supplementary intakes.
