Recommended Dietary Allowance

What is RDA?

The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) of a nutrient is the quantity of that nutrient that is required to maintain good health in individuals. RDAs for each nutrient are established by the governing bodies of their respective nations. In India, the RDA of each nutrient is established by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). 

 

The full set of nutrient requirements and Recommended Dietary Allowances for Indians as set by the ICMR can be found here:-

What is the difference between RDA and Upper Limit?

ICMR defines the Tolerable Upper Intake Level (UL) as "the highest average daily nutrient intake level that is likely to pose no risk of adverse health effects for almost all individuals in the general population. As intake increases above the UL, the potential risk of adverse effects increases."

The UL is not intended to be a recommended level of intake of a particular nutrient, but rather as a boundary to show that there is no established benefit for individuals to consume nutrients beyond the UL. 

balanzit was meticulously created keeping the RDA and UL in mind so as to help you fulfil your Recommended Dietary Allowances without crossing the Tolerable Upper Intake Levels.

What is Hypervitaminosis?

There are two types of vitamins: water soluble and fat soluble. Water soluble vitamins dissolve in water and are not stored by the body. Water soluble vitamins include Vitamin C and the various vitamins in the B Vitamin group.  Water soluble vitamins are easily washed out during food storage and preparation, and are removed from the body in urine. That's why we need a daily supply of these vitamins in our diet.

Fat soluble vitamins include vitamins A, D, E, and K. They dissolve in fat and are stored in the liver and fatty tissues, and are removed from the body much more slowly. Abnormally high storage levels of these vitamins can lead to Hypervitaminosis which can by unhealthy. 

Crossing the Tolerable Upper Intake Levels frequently may lead to hypervitaminosis. 

How balanzit is scientifically designed to avoid hypervitaminosis:-

balanzit is scientifically designed to avoid Hypervitaminosis because it takes into consideration the vitamin levels present in the various types of fortified foods (E.g. breakfast cereals, sports drinks, etc.) that people tend to consume regularly. The quantity of each ingredient of balanzit is set such that it will help you fulfill your recommended daily allowances without crossing the Tolerable Upper Intake Levels. Moreover, the serving sizes are set such that the needs of all age groups are addressed.

The serving sizes of balanzit are set such that balanzit can fulfill 40-70% of RDA every single day for all age groups 4 years and above. 

With micro-nutrients obtained from other regular and fortified food sources, this means that you can get as close to 100% as possible of RDA with balanzit without crossing the ULs. See exactly how much of your family's %RDA is safely fulfilled by balanzit everyday: -
