Americans are now spending more than $17 billion a year on supplements for health and wellness.  Strangely enough, the rates of many forms of chronic disease have not changed, while the rates of many others have actually increased.  Why is that?  Well, of course there are many factors involved, but a major contributing factor is that despite daily vitamin supplementation, most people are still seriously deficient in the critical vitamins and minerals that their bodies require on a daily basis and one thing is fairly clear, their supplements aren’t helping very much.

Here’s the basic problem: all vitamin supplements are NOT created equal.   Don’t be fooled by nutrient claims on the labels or inflated costs- this information is often totally misleading.  You could not only be wasting your time and hard-earned money, but despite your best intentions, you may not be effectively supporting your health either.

The vast majority of vitamin supplements, yes- even the expensive brands- typically use synthetic vitamin isolates rather than the vitamin in it’s whole, natural state.  Real, complete vitamin complexes are derived from whole-food sources; i.e.- something living, and as such, impart life to your body.  The synthetic, fractionated chemical copies of vitamins which are used in most supplements are manufactured in a lab.  They never grew in the ground, never saw the light of day, were never alive or part of anything living.  In your body they’re basically just another drug.
