The Suggested Optimal Daily Nutritional Allowances (SONAS)

The suggested optimal daily nutritional allowances (SONAS) developed by Alex Schauss, Ph.D., provide a far better guideline to optimal health. Schauss developed his recommendations primarily from the extensive work of Emanuel Cheraskin and W. M. Ringsdorf Jr. of the University of Alabama School of Medicine. Over a 15-year study, these two pioneering nutrition researchers conducted comprehensive health evaluations (health status questionnaires, physical exams, laboratory measures, and cardiac function and blood sugar regulation tests) and collected nutrient intake data on 13,500 male and female adults living in six regions of the United States. The data from their $2 million study were recorded in 49,000 bound pages in 153 volumes and have resulted in the publication of over 100 research articles. Using all this data, Cheraskin and Ringsdorf correlated the intake of specific nutrients with health status and tried to find a truly ideal level of intake for each nutrient. Interestingly, more was not always better. Joseph Pizzorno has provided nutritional recommendations based on the work by Schauss and from 500 other references.
