Cultured, Whole Food Vitamins And Supplements

There is a substantial difference between whole food vitamins and synthetic vitamins. When vitamins appear in nature there is a slew of accompanying enzymes, coenzymes, antioxidants, trace elements, and activators that help the body absorb the vitamins. This is one of those dietary components that most people haven’t heard of. It’s got a difficult name, and there are no major illnesses associated with deficiency in it. However, the potential benefits to consuming it are tremendous.\n\nThis isn’t to suggest that whole food vitamins can prevent or cure any disease (although there’s good evidence they do). Vitamins and multivitamins are not foods. People do not know what it really means to eat healthy. Our bodies require these specific vitamins and minerals for efficient operation, daily endurance, mental stability, and more.\n\nStudies about plant based vitamins and whole foods are yet to come up with a clear result. You see, some cheap synthetic supplements are made from petrochemicals. We are saying for example, that ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) is important but the hundreds of other amazing compounds that are naturally found within a Vitamin C rich food, such as an orange, have no significance.\n\nThis is a much more natural and beneficial method of obtaining nutrition from food and herbal supplements alike. Nutrients from isolated vitamins and supplements are not adequate for our dietary requirements because they lack the cofactors and micronutrients needed and are not recognized by our bodies as food.\n\nEven when fresh vegetables and fruits are consumed as a large portion of the diet, our nation’s food supply is contaminated by the use of pesticides, herbicides and hormones and much of the nutrient value is lost by transportation of the food crop from thousands of miles away.…
