Smart Prevention: Health Care Cost Savings & Supplements

Use of specific dietary supplements in targeted populations not only provides health benefits, but also offers significant savings for health care costs, according to report, “Smart Prevention—Health Care Cost Savings Resulting from the Targeted Use of Dietary Supplements,” issued by the economic firm Frost & Sullivan, through a grant from the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) Foundation. The report examined four different chronic diseases and the potential for health care cost savings when U.S. adults age 55 and older diagnosed with these chronic diseases used one of eight different dietary supplement regimens. It demonstrated that supplementation at preventive intake levels in high-risk populations can reduce the number of disease-associated medical events, representing the potential for hundreds of millions of dollars—and in some cases billions—of savings. 

This economic report demonstrates that the use of specific dietary supplements among those consumers that are at a high risk of experiencing a costly disease-related event can lead to a positive health care cost savings.
