Vitamin losers and fakers

Some 100 million Americans are spending over $28 billion on nutritional supplements a year and assuming that these products help them more than harm them. Many of the cheaper vitamins are produced from synthetic and isolated vitamins that lack the necessary trace minerals and co-factors to be absorbed by the body. Taking isolated vitamins will actually deplete the body’s vitamin and mineral reserves, leading to dangerous mineral deficiencies. This is because synthetic vitamins lack the transporters and co-factors associated with naturally-occurring, whole food vitamins. Like vitamin E for instance; Taking alpha tocopherol vitamin will short all the other forms of tocopherol. The solution is to take a mixed tocopherol vitamin E. When you take the food-based natural forms of vitamins, they already contain all the minerals and components your body needs to utilize them.
