There are major differences between a typical supplement and an organic whole food vitamin supplement. For instance, with natural vitamins, there are enzymes, antioxidants, trace elements and other activators which assist faster absorption by the body. Indeed, it’s probably only by the combination of right eating and a strong base of supplements that an ordinary person can ensure that they’re getting everything they need to live a long, healthy, happy existence.\n\nThis is why fruits and vegetables are universally considered to be healthy foods by almost everyone, and refined sugar (which was rare during hunter-gatherer times, in the form of seasonal honey) causes obesity, cavities, and even diabetes. This is where well-meaning eaters so often falter in the journey towards health improvement and a trimmer waistline, entering the lifelong trend of yo-yo dieting.\n\nIt is nearly unreasonable to add these healthy components to a diet only to extract 10% of the actual benefits. Health supplements that contain the full roster of eight B-Vitamins are called Vitamin B Complex supplements. Assuming it is manufactured with due regard for the time of harvest, it contains all 59 of the trace elements needed by the body, vitamins, amino acids, taurine, omega 3 & 6 fish oils and it is the highest natural source of the trace element zinc.\n\nI have used numerous vitamin supplements, and derived usually nothing from them. For example, with vitamin E, synthetic vitamins will only contain alpha tocopherols. So many supplements that are called whole food vitamins are not really 100% real whole food sourced.\n\nThe governmental and educational agencies that have devised the perfect American diet have never truly addressed the lack of nutrients, other than the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of basic vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin A, Vitamin D and Calcium.
