Did You Know? Even a little bit of exercise can have a big impact, both on people’s health and on employers’ costs.

Good health is priceless. But with the total annual cost of health care in the U.S. topping $3 trillion a year (about $8,650 per capita), or roughly 18% of GDP, employers and insurance companies are always looking for ways to spend less on it.

A new study from the University of Michigan Health Management Research Center offers some encouraging news: Even as little as 10 or 20 minutes of daily exercise can “dramatically” lower the risk of developing serious chronic conditions like heart disease and diabetes, even for people at high risk.

The research project looked at how exercise affected 4,345 employees at a financial services company. About 30% of the employees were suffering from what doctors call metabolic syndrome, a cluster of risk factors (including high blood pressure and high cholesterol) that often leads to diabetes and heart disease. Overall, an estimated 34% of U.S. adults have metabolic syndrome.

The study found that, when the high-risk employees put in the 150 minutes per week of exercise recommended by the Centers for Disease Control, their health care costs dropped to the same level as those of healthy employees’.

Employees with metabolic syndrome who put in 30 minutes of exercise five times a week racked up an average of $2,770 in annual medical expenses, compared with $3,855 for at-risk employees who didn’t work out. The exercisers’ pharmacy costs alone fell by half.

But the biggest eye-opener from the study was how helpful it can be to exercise at all. The researchers noticed health-care cost savings even among people who reported just 10-20 minutes of vigorous movement per day.

Company’s intent on cutting their health care need to encourage employees to sit less and move more. “With a little imagination, employers can come up with low-cost ways to get people moving at work, like putting up signs that remind employees to take the stairs instead of the elevator, or giving out maps of nearby walking routes that fit into a lunch hour.

Promoting Good Health is Promoting Strong Business
  • Employees are your most valuable capital investment and are vital to success. 
  • Nutritional deficiencies and cardiovascular risks lead to health conditions and chronic disease that lower functionality and increase the need for expensive care and prescriptions. 
  • Illness and chronic disease decrease employee job performance, retention and profitability. 
  • Chronic diseases account for 60% of medical care costs and 70% of all deaths in the US and are the most preventable of all health problems.

Overwhelming evidence confirms that cardiovascular health and nutrition are intimately linked. When nutritional deficiencies exist, heart health is seriously impaired. Assessing nutritional health with our exclusive Micronutrient Test combined with the Lipoprotein Particle Profile test enables your physician to see the big picture.

How Many of Your Employees Contribute to Lost Productivity and Profits?

Factors that Contribute to Lost Productivity and Decreased Profits Include:

Medical Claims

Rising Healthcare Premiums
Workers' Comp

A National survey estimated that sickness presenteeism cost the United States more than $150 billion annually and accounts for 71% of the total cost of lost productivity. Studies estimate that total productivity loss, accounting for both health-related presenteeism and absenteeism, costs companies three times what they pay for pharmacy and medical claims.

A wide range of nutritional deficiencies can affect general state of well-being and are scientifically proven to contribute to the onset of chronic disease.

"Micronutrient testing offers a unique, scientifically based evaluation of functional deficiencies that allows targeted treatment with nutritional supplements ... improving patient compliance with tailored therapy and success in the treatment of a variety of diseases."
Mark Houston, MD Hypertension Institute St. Thomas Medical Center & Vanderbilt University

Nutrition and Employee Health

Many People Work at Improving Their Health, Yet Some Individuals Still Have Deficiencies. Why?

    Because each of us is metabolically and biochemically unique, the micronutrient requirements for one person may be quite different than the requirements for another. 
    Although you may eat a balanced diet, if you do not absorb vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and/or other essential micronutrients properly, you will have deficiencies. 
    Health conditions such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, fatigue and multiple sclerosis, to name a few, can be affected, directly or indirectly, by micronutrient deficiencies. 
  • AGING 
    Our micronutrient requirements at age 30 are quite different from our requirements at age 40, 50 and beyond. Absorption difficulties, especially of vitamin B12, quite commonly occur as we age. 
    Excessive physical activity, prescription drugs, smoking, alcohol and sedentary habits all impact micronutrient demands.

Workplace stress costs U.S. employers an estimated $300 billion per year in absenteeism, lower productivity, staff turnover, workers' compensation, medical insurance and other stress-related expenses. (Reported by the American Institute of Stress)

According to the American Heart Association, high blood pressure was expected to cost the United States more than $76 billion in health care services, medications, and missed days of work in 2010. In 2009 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention projected the annual cost of heart disease to exceed $475 billion. When combining presenteeism, absenteeism and health and disability benefits, the second most expensive condition identified for employers is heart disease. The highest cost is high blood pressure.

Migraine issues in the workplace are important to both the sufferer and the employer, as 150 million work hours are lost each year to head pain, costing U.S. industry up to $17 billion dollars a year. One of the latest studies on the economic cost of Migraine found that the unemployment rate in individuals with severe Migraine is 10% to 20%, several times higher than the general population.

Micronutrients such as magnesium, CoQ10, pantothenate and vitamins B6, B 12 and D are commonly contributed to headaches. Current evidence suggests that up to 50% of migraine patients have lowered levels of ionized magnesium during acute attacks.

B Vitamins are essential to reducing the effects of stress.
