SUPPLEMENTS
 With similar logic in place, one can analyze what a typical multivitamin truly is. The automobile equivalent of creating a multivitamin would be going to a junk yard, finding all the separate parts you would need to make up an entire automobile, throwing them together in a heap (or capsule in terms of the multivitamin) and expecting that heap to drive like a car! Obviously, there is a difference. Science cannot create life. Only life can create life. The various parts of a natural vitamin complex work together in a synergistic manner. Synergy means that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Nutritionist Judith DeCava puts it best: “Separating the group of compounds (in a vitamin complex) converts it from a physiological, biochemical, active micronutrient into a disabled, debilitated chemical of little or no value to living cells. The synergy is gone.”

I always try to select from companies that have a long track record of providing high quality products that produce good clinical result. Proof Positive for Throwing Away Your Vitamin Supplements According to Science Magazine, animals on synthetic vitamins dropped dead long before the animals on no synthetic vitamins. The Vitamins in Medicine warns against doses more than 10 mg of vitamin B1 because they were not metabolized and were excreted unchanged in the urine. The American Academy of Applied Nutrition found that animals fed enriched bread lived 10% shorter lives than those fed un-enriched bread. The New England Journal of Medicine cited that babies of women who consumed 10,000 I.U of vitamin A from supplements had a 240% increase in birth defects. The same journal also showed that men taking beta-carotene supplements had an 18% higher incidence of lung cancer, more heart attacks and an 8% higher overall death rate. These same men who were taking vitamin E supplements had more strokes from bleeding in the brain. A four-year study at Dartmouth showed no colon cancer protection when taking synthetic anti-oxidant vitamins. New England Journal of Medicine reports that elderly people taking a synthetic multi-vitamin did not benefit with their complaints of muscle weakness and physical tiredness. British Journal of Chemistry and Physiology reports that ascorbic acid (vitamin C) injections did not improve intestinal disease. A study at the University of California at Berkeley noted that administration of synthetic vitamins to dogs caused a worse state of health than pure starvation. Journal of Nutrition noted that sterility occurred in rats given synthetic B1 vitamins. It also often causes hyperthyroidism per the Journal of the American Medical Association. One of the most perilous deceptions is the passing off on a gullible public, phony, synthetic vitamins and preaching THAT THE BODY DOES NOT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE. At the very best, synthetic vitamins can function in the body as a DRUG OR PHARMACEUTICAL AGENT; certainly, not as a natural nutrient.
