Why do amounts of certain vitamins in some AdvoCare products exceed 100% of RDIs?
Reference Daily Intakes (RDIs) are the values for vitamins and minerals established by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ensure adequate nutritional needs are met for most healthy folks in all age groups. The United States has used these values for many years and are recognizable worldwide. RDIs are based upon the Recommended Daily Allowances (RDAs) set by the Food and Nutrition Board, National Research Council, Institute of Medicine, and National Academy of Sciences. Many health experts, including AdvoCare’s Scientific & Medical Advisory Board believe that in many cases optimal nutrition provides benefits not available with merely adequate nutrition. For some nutrients, optimal nutrition is achieved at a level above 100% of the RDI.
