If you are one of those people taking over-the-counter synthetic vitamins, you may not be getting the quantity or quality of vitamins you thought you were getting. Whether or not your vitamins are hurting you is another story. What people are not aware of is all vitamins are not created equal, and most are actually synthetic.
What is a “Synthetic” Vitamin?
The type of vitamins that are the most beneficial is up for debate. A healthy, organic diet should provide a good amount of nutrients that the body needs, but supplements can help ensure that we are getting a healthy dose of specific vitamins.
The problem is that many vitamin and mineral supplements are manufactured synthetically with chemicals and do not come straight from their natural sources. They are made to mimic the way natural vitamins act in our bodies. Natural vitamins are derived directly from plant material containing the vitamin, not produced in a test tube.
Many synthetic vitamins lack the transporters and co-factors associated with naturally-occurring vitamins because they have been “isolated.” The Organic Consumers Association emphasizes that isolated vitamins cannot be used or recognized by the body in the same way as the natural version.
Synthetic vitamins are also devoid of necessary trace minerals and must use the body’s own mineral reserves which may lead to dangerous mineral deficiencies.
To make matters worse, foods in today’s time have far less nutrients in them than they did 25-50 years ago. For example oranges contain one-tenth the amount of vitamin C in them than they did three decades ago. Spinach has dropped its precious iron intake and is only 1.5% of what it was only 60 years ago. This is because our soils have become depleted and contain few trace minerals and other vitamins.
To be an active participant in the care of your body, you need to know your options. Many people search out natural substances to maintain their health or to address particular health concerns when they become dissatisfied with conventional routes or realize the complementary nature of dietary supplements and functional foods.
