When considering supplements - vitamins, minerals, or other nutritive products - one of the first questions you should ask is: Are they synthetic or natural?
Synthetic supplements are chemically constructed nutrients, cooked up in a laboratory, that may be of little use to your body and may do more harm than good. Several studies show negative results in test groups taking synthetic vitamins:
- More deaths from lung cancer, stroke and ischemic heart disease in male smokers, using synthetic beta-carotene and vitamin E
- Birth defects increased by 400 percent in pregnant women taking synthetic vitamin A
- Men who took synthetic vitamin C had signs of thickening of the arteries
Supplements Are Necessary
Before the age of convenience foods, nutrition came from whole foods that provided natural proportions of necessary vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants (cancer fighters) and phytonutrients (plant medicines).
In today's world, farmland is not as nutrient-rich as it was over a half century ago. Modern crops provide fewer of the required nutrients.
When you eat an apple, it has one-fifth of the nutrition of an apple fifty years ago. You need to eat five times the amount of food your grandparents ate to receive the same nutritional value.
Even healthy eating does not guarantee you are giving your body all that it needs. Supplementation is necessary for maintaining a strong, healthy body and slowing down the aging process.

P.S. Did you know most vitamins are now made in China? Ninety percent of all vitamin C sold in the United States is made by the Chinese. Chinese pharmaceutical companies have also taken over most of the production of vitamins A, B12 and E.
So if you're buying vitamins from the big box stores, grocery store chains or even many health food stores, you're likely wasting your money on useless synthetic supplements.
