Consumer Alert – Dangerous Vitamins Invade Marketplace


Once upon a time, scientists invented synthetic vitamins in a noble attempt to rescue humanity from an endless avalanche of devastating health consequences resulting from the consumption of highly-processed foodless foods. Eden had been restored, it seemed, because vitamins made in laboratories were now much cheaper to produce. Optimists were hopeful that the nutritional benefits of man-made vitamins would equal the nutritional benefits provided by the all-natural competition.

Boy, were they wrong!

We now know that synthetic vitamins are nowhere near as good as all-natural vitamins. We also know that the highest-quality of all-natural vitamins are those that use a blend of Whole-Food sources that come directly from fruits and vegetables.

But not only are synthetic vitamins inferior, they are DANGEROUS! Yet for some mysterious reason, most consumers are oblivious to this well-documented fact. Meanwhile, synthetic vitamins continue to flood our marketplace. Most vitamins sold today are synthetic.

In case you’re not convinced that synthetic vitamins really are dangerous, allow me to give you two examples. Many more could be given, but these two will suffice.

The synthetic form of Vitamin C is Ascorbic Acid. Ascorbic Acid can harm your body by thickening the arterial walls of your heart! Ascorbic Acid has invaded the marketplace. Beware!

Another example is synthetic Vitamin E. Synthetic Vitamin E actually sucks vitamins and minerals right out of your bones. Synthetic Vitamin E has invaded the marketplace. Beware!

Bottom line? There’s no substitute for All-Natural Whole-Food Vitamins and Minerals. This is what nature intended. And it’s not nice to fool Mother Nature! Your body requires everything from A to Zinc. Make certain the multi-vitamins you choose contain 100% of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) established.

According to Taber’s Medical Dictionary, vitamins are essential. They’re indispensable for the maintenance of health. And The Journal of American Medical Association concluded that every individual should take a multi-vitamin every day.

Poor nutrition can lead to devastating consequences. Since it’s extremely difficult in our topsy-turvy world to get all the essential nutrients your body needs strictly from your diet alone, I urge you to consider supplementing your diet with an all-natural multi-vitamin made from whole-food sources. Your body begins to pay the price as it tries to compensate for nutrient deficiencies. Don’t treat your body as if it were invincible.

Don’t be deluded by the false claims of synthetic vitamin companies. Your health is priceless. Give your body what it needs and deserves. Bottom line: getting the proper nutrients and micronutrients each day from whole-food sources is critical to maintaining good health.
