What's the point of taking a supplement if your body cannot use it?
One reason most supplements fail is they are synthetic.
Synthetic vitamins contain artificial ingredients.
These artificial ingredients are harmful and interfere with the ability of the vitamin to be absorbed by your body.
And because the vitamin market is unregulated, many supplements contain cheap ingredients.
You can quickly see if a supplement is of low quality if it contains Carbonate (e.g. calcium carbonate), Oxide (e.g. magnesium oxide), Sulfate or Phosphate.
Finally, any multivitamin that contains iron, copper or iodine is an inferior formula. These ingredients are oxidants, which damages the vitamins in the supplement.
So what kind of multivitamin should you be consuming?
Any supplement you or your kids take should be made from real food. This is the only way your body can absorb the vitamins.
Quality is everything. No matter how little you pay, the most expensive supplement is one that doesn't work.
P.S. When it comes to vitamins and supplements, the issue is not "natural" versus synthetic. It's real food versus synthetic.
Natural sounds good. But they can take something from a natural source, like a fruit or vegetable, do anything they want to it - and still call it "natural."
For example, they can heat it until the enzymes are dead or add artificial ingredients such as food coloring - and still refer to it as "natural."
That's why these days, the word 'natural' is often meaningless.
