The Synthetic Vitamin Deception

Because it's hard to eat 5-9 fruits and vegetables every day, manySynthetic vitamins versus whole food nutrition Americans think they can get the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants they need from isolated synthetic supplements.

 Americans are buying synthetic supplements in droves to the tune of $20 billion a year. But don't be fooled! Research shows that synthetic vitamins are 50-70 percent less biologically active than natural vitamins.(1)

The fact is, there are literally thousands of naturally occurring nutrients in fresh fruits, vegetables berries, greens, seeds, nuts and sprouts that you simply cannot get from synthetic, isolated vitamin supplements.

Synthetic, isolated vitamins and inorganic mineral supplements don't even come close to giving you the REAL whole food-based nutrition you can get from the best whole foods.

The enzymes found in fresh fruits and vegetables are powerful components of food that help promote healthy digestion.

After years of focusing on single nutrients, nutrition researchers began to focus on whole foods, finding that food is more than just a sum of its nutrient parts. So, instead of taking a handful of vitamins each day, the advice that came down the scientific pipeline was "Eating a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables every day has superior health benefits because of the ‘synergy’ of food." This means that all of the compounds in a piece of fruit or a vegetable work better together in your body to perform different jobs than taking the same synthetic or isolated individual vitamins.
