The Curious Case of Vitamins and Me - The Nature of Things (CBC Television)
Directed and Hosted by Bryce Sage
A Production of Merit Motion Pictures
THE CURIOUS CASE OF VITAMINS AND ME consults with leading health and nutrition experts in an attempt to debunk myths and misconceptions around vitamins and supplements, and determine the best course of action for optimal nutritional health. At the prestigious National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland, Bryce Sage meets with experts in an attempt to decipher the ‘Daily Values’ numbers found on food labels, and to determine how those values are calculated. While it’s clear that a balanced diet is the best way to get the recommended daily requirements for all 13 essential vitamins, Bryce learns we may not be getting exactly what we need due to nutrition declines that can be attributed to modern agricultural practices.
