Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Nobel Prize winner, was an early pioneer on the necessity of vitamins and minerals for optimal health, stating, “You can trace every ailment, every sickness, and every disease to a vitamin and mineral deficiency.”
But do we really need “extra” vitamins and minerals? Shouldn’t it be enough to just eat a good diet, exercise regularly and make good lifestyle choices? The answer, unfortunately, is a resounding “no.”
From the depletion of the soil our food is grown in, to the rise of industrial farming, to the nutrient-zapping time delay from factory farm to family table, very few—if any of us—can rely upon diet alone to deliver the nutrition our bodies need to perform well. Food is just not what it was back in grandma’s day.
An increasing awareness of the nutritional deficiency of our diet has fueled the growth of the supplement market—to an estimated $30 billion annually in the US—as people flock to pills and powders to get a nutritional boost.
Today, over half of American adults take supplements, most in the form of a multivitamin. But do these vitamin supplements deliver on their promise of nutrition or are they offering false hope?
Download the free report, “The Five Problems with Vitamin Supplements” today to see which vitamins are among the worst offenders, and learn the labeling tricks used to keep you in the dark about what’s in your vitamins.
This free no-obligation report sheds a light on how most supplement providers try to disguise the sourcing of their vitamins. You’ll see how they describe vitamins in science-sounding terms designed to assure consumers of efficacy, yet only serve to deceive you of their true origin.
Where do those vitamins really come from? Take vitamin B3 for example, essential for energy production and shown to be supportive of healthy cholesterol levels. On your vitamin label, you’ll see Niacin or Niacinamide. Sounds good, right?
Food sources of vitamin B3 include broccoli, rice bran and mushrooms. But that’s not where your Niacin is coming from. Unless a food source is stated on the label, that Niacin was cooked up using coal tar derivatives, ammonia and even formaldehyde. Not very appetizing.
It may come as a shock to discover that most vitamins, even “name brands” you know and trust, are loading up your “healthy” supplements with synthetic vitamins. Cooked up in a lab, using high-heat and harsh chemicals, these synthetics and isolates bear little resemblance to the nutrition found in real food.
