How to identify Natural vitamin

How to identify Natural vitamin

Some consumers  are unaware some vitamins on sell  in the market are synthetic, not natural.  I have made a list  on how to identify Natural vitamin.

Vitamin and mineral supplements may contain labels that are too complicated for you to understand.

 

Some manufacturers of commercial vitamin and mineral supplements add synthetics to vitamin products

Steps To Identify natural from synthetic

 

 

Step 1 – Look at for phrases like 100% plant based not 60% or 40%

 

Step 2 – Look for the  ingredient source, were there naturally source e.g, fish, vegetable, citrus etc Usually when you cant find this information it means it is synthetic  thats why it was not written.

Step 3 –  Any trace of  these salt ….. acetate, bitartrate, chloride, gluconate, hydrochloride, nitrate and succinate.

Step 4 – Look for letters like  “dl” that appear before the name of an ingredient indicates the supplement is synthetic.

 

 Step 5 – Look at for  organically derived ingredients

 Step 6 – If you cant distinguish, ask a pharmacist

Food supplement good or Bad

Food supplement good or Bad

Taking Vitamin supplement is not part of our daily routine, there has been a general belief that it is good for us. Most people presume our daily meals don’t have the contain all our daily recommended nutrients

But recently there have been studies and peoples experiences. The held belief that vitamin tablets is good for us is now been question.

The health bodies have been criticise for lax regulation etc

Even food experts are divided, some are for and other against..

Besides the obvious role of marketing, why do so many of us allow ourselves to believe that vitamins are good for us with little proof

There’s no denying that prolonged deficiency of certain vitamins can lead to illness and disease. The real question, though, is whether vitamin supplements are good or bad?

 

If you eat a diet full of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, there’s a good chance you already reach your suggested daily intake. And even if you eat a less-than-stellar diet, many types of processed foods are fortified with vitamins and minerals.

Some individuals at risk for a vitamin deficiency due to a poor diet or a preexisting medical condition should consider supplementing with a multivitamin to address that deficiency.

Different studies have come out with different findings , some below

Is it natural or synthetic Vitamin

–  individuals who took the daily supplement had an increased mortality rate .

–  women who took multivitamin supplements (vitamin C, E, beta-carotene, selenium, and zinc) increased their risk of developing skin cancer .

–  the likelihood of developing lung cancer among smokers .
excessive amounts of vitamin E increased patients’ risk of heart failure .

–  excessive Vitamin E supplementation significantly increased the risk of prostate cancer .

If taking in moderation and natural supplements it can be good for some people, but experts and research have shown excessive intake can lead to harmful consequence.

Synthetic Vitamin versus Natural Vitamin

Differences Between Synthetic and Natural Vitamins

NATURAL VITAMINS

We all know vitamins are good  for  our health and to the proper functioning of our bodies.

Natural vitamins are derived directly from plant material containing the vitamin, not produced in a test tube.

The natural  vitamins come in packages with other vitamins, enzymes and minerals that control the way the body recognizes, metabolizes and uses them to make what it needs.

Lack of Vitamin can  lead to different diseases.

Sources –  Food, sunlight, plants,  etc

 

SYNTHETIC VITAMINS

However, a lot of people are not aware of synthetic Vitamins.

What is a “Synthetic” Vitamin?

Synthetic Vitamins are made in the laboratory to mimic the natural vitamins, the ingredients are not plant based.

Many synthetic vitamins lack the transporters and co-factors associated with naturally occurring vitamins because they have been “isolated.”

 

Isolated vitamins can’t always be used by the body, and are either stored until you obtain or create the nutrients required to use them effectively or are excreted.

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.

 

Example – The synthetic version of Vitamin E is often referred to as the dl- form. The dl- form is a combination of the d-form (which, by the way, is the naturally occurring form) and the l-form. No big deal, right? Well it might not be, except that the body doesn’t actually use the l-form- we excrete it! I must note here that this applies only to vitamins and not amino acids or sugars. Fat soluble vitamins in their synthetic form are especially dangerous because they can build up in your fatty tissues and cause toxicity. The reason that the synthetic form is more dangerous is because you get a high, concentrated serving of the vitamin rather than the amount that you would get from a food-based form.

Did You Know? More than 95% of all the vitamin supplements sold today fall in to the synthetic category.
