Are You Wasting Your Money On Synthetic Vitamins?

If you're one of the millions of Americans who take vitamins everyday, you may not be getting what you think. Chances are, like most everyone else, you're taking a synthetic vitamin.

And that's the problem – 90% of synthetic vitamins pass right through you. That's also why people joke that people who buy supplements have expensive urine.

But for some people it's not funny. Studies show that synthetic vitamins might even be harmful.

3 Studies

#1. Study using synthetic beta carotene and Vitamin E halted.

29,000 male smokers were given synthetic beta carotene and synthetic Vitamin E. The study was stopped when rates of lung cancer, heart attacks and death increased. - New England Journal of Medicine, 1994

#2. Birth defects increased for women on synthetic supplements.

22,000 pregnant women were given synthetic Vitamin A. The study was halted because birth defects increased 400%. - New England Journal of Medicine, 1995

#3. Men get thickened arteries on synthetic supplements.

Men who took 500 mg of synthetic Vitamin C daily over 18 months showed signs of thickening of the arteries. - Reuters Health, March, 2000

Reactions include fatigue, memory loss, depression, insomnia and potential liver disorders.

Zoltan P. Rona, M.D., says that while a healthy person will not drop dead immediately after ingesting synthetic supplements, "the long-term consequences of continuous, daily intakes are potentially dangerous."

So are you or your children taking synthetic vitamins? Are you sure?

Supplements only have to be ten percent natural in order to legally make the claim of being "natural". That's why more than ninety-five percent of all vitamins sold today are synthetic. This is what separates BarleyLife Xtra, which is made from real food, from the Amazon and grocery store cheapies.
