Do you take a daily multivitamin? What if that multivitamin you take was actually poison and you didn’t know it?
Many people these days seem to understand that we are missing nutritional factors from the food we eat because the quality of food has gone down tremendously over the last 50-100 years.
From people not consuming as many vegetables and fruits as they used too and an even larger part of the population consuming non-organic food, our bodies aren’t getting what they need to prevent disease. If the body doesn’t get very basic nutritional needs, it begins to break down and not function properly. This can eventually lead to sickness, illness, and disease. This is where a good quality whole food multivitamin can provide the missing nutritional factors that we all need.
Are all multivitamins alike? Do you take Centrum, GNC’s Megaman, or another store-bought brand name multivitamin? I remember long ago looking on the back of my Centrum bottle and seeing thousands of percents of vitamins and thinking that surely this multivitamin would do the trick and provide me with what I need. I was dead wrong.
The bad news is that Centrum and many others multivitamins can actually be very harmful and do the opposite of what they market being able to do. While Flintstones or gummy vitamins are colorful, they may be actually contributing to sickness in your children. In fact, many chewables for children contain aspartame in order to make it sweet. Aspartame is a very well-known brain toxin, killing brain cells. The work of Dr. Russell Blaylock on excitotoxins can provide more wonderful information about aspartame.
Whole Food Vs. Synthetic Supplements
More is not always better. Just because a bottle may list thousands of percent of something doesn’t make it better. In nature, things are never found like this. A synthetic vitamin is a fractionated, chemically made substance. If we were created for things like this, they could make all of our food in a pharmaceutical laboratory. This, of course, is absurd. It is the co-factors in addition to all of the main nutrients, which science has still yet to discover that provides life to the body. Chemicals and synthetics don’t sustain life, they only serve to break it down and destroy life. Only food, in its natural whole form supports and sustains life. If synthetic vitamins don’t actually come from food, where do they come from??
