Are Nutritional Supplements Worthwhile?

A recent study at Johns Hopkins University looked at previous studies that were trying to determine if vitamin supplements can prevent disease and extend life. They concluded the answer is no. However what they didn’t say was that these studies used synthetic supplements. So when many doctors say nutritional supplements are a waste of money, they are right because most people are taking highly processed synthetic chemicals called vitamins and minerals. Ordinary drugstore, health food store and the latest MLM company supplements are made in the laboratory with a few natural substances thrown in so they can call their product natural. Any supplement that list high potency amounts of nutrients on their label is synthetic. Such high potencies of nutrients do not occur in natural sources. These synthetic versions of nutrients (called isolates) are not the complete nutrient as found in whole foods and are poorly absorbed.

In addition the residues of poisonous solvents, binders and chemicals used in the manufacturing process, as well as the pesticides from the raw materials used, can build up toxicity in your system. These contaminants accumulate and over a period of years can over tax the liver and kidneys and contribute to serious, chronic health problems. Synthetic supplements are really not much different than taking prescription drugs. If we look at the big picture, most people have been taking truck loads of these supplements with very little long term results. It seems obvious that if all these highly touted products were really working, we would have a much healthier population.

Whole Food Supplements to the Rescue
Our bodies were designed to best assimilate and utilize nutrients as they are found in whole natural foods. Therefore it just makes sense that we should also get our supplemental nutrients from supplements made from whole food concentrates. Fortunately there are several good choices available. When considering a product, check to see if it is a whole food product and is made from whole, organic, natural ingredients without chemical additives.

    First of all I would like to say great blog! I
    had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.

    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost
    simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
    Thank you!
