STOP Taking MULTI-VITAMINS Until You Read This! by Dr. Mercola (even the ones that are labeled as "Natural")

The following article by Dr. Mercola confirms what I have been educating so many people on lately. If you look at your vitamin bottle label and instead of seeing food and herbs as the only main ingredients, you see something like this, you are taking SYNTHETIC vitamins:

Vitamin A (beta-carotene, palmitate) 4,000 IU 80% Daily Value (DV)
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) 125 mg 210% DV
Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopheryl) 25 IU 80% DV
Vitamin B1 (thiamine) 6.25 mg 420% DV
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) 5 mg 290% DV
Niacin (niacinamide) 15 mg 80% DV
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine HCl) 7.5 mg 380% DV
Folic acid 100 mcg 25% DV
Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin or methylcobalmin) 25 mcg 420% DV
so on....

To make it look more attractive, some companies even throw in a few food-based ingredients into the section labeled "Other Ingredients." However, the "main ingredients" are still synthetic and can cause health problems in the future. Another issue is that those few food ingredients may not even be organic and now you have a whole new issue to deal with.

STOP Taking Multivitamins Until You Read This!
by Dr. Joseph Mercola

Did you know your multivitamin may be creating toxic build up within your body? The deadly secret multivitamin suppliers hope you never discover...
What if you discovered your multivitamin was punishing you instead of helping you?

What would cause me to ask you this?

Believe it or not, all multivitamins are not created equal. Some may, in fact, inflict enough punishment on you that they should probably be flushed down the toilet.

Radical?

Consider this... If your multivitamin is synthetic, how do you know it's even doing you any good? Are you assuming that because you take a 'multi' you're guaranteed better health than if you don't - because it seems like the healthy thing to do?

Obviously if you take a multi, this is something you'll want to check out.

Why You Should Avoid Synthetic Isolates Like the Plague...
In my opinion, if you shop for your supplements at discount stores you may be seriously shortchanging yourself because those products typically use cheap synthetic isolates.

Millions gorge themselves on synthetic vitamins, only to acquire and die from degenerative diseases.

You see, isolated vitamins are partial vitamins, combined with other chemicals. They're a low-end alternative to whole, real complete food.

When you remove a part from the whole, you get 'Synthetic,' 'Isolated,' or 'Fractionated' pieces of the whole, but it's simply not the same.

There are four problems with synthetic vitamins...

Nature intended for you to consume food in WHOLE form because all the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes are together in one package. They work synergistically to give your body the nutrition it requires for optimal health.

Your body only absorbs a small percentage of an isolate form of vitamins and minerals - and it utilizes even less. You get the best bioavailability in whole food form.

Synthetic vitamins often give you massive quantities of some nutrients (usually the most inexpensive ones) and insufficient quantities of others, not balance.

You can experience side effects of synthetic isolates from the additives and the unnatural state of the synthetic supplement.

You've heard me say it before... Fast food and a sedentary lifestyle can be a disaster for your health.

Don't let your multivitamin add to the collateral damage.

In fact, you want to be sure it makes a real and significant contribution to your health, especially if you've already adopted healthy lifestyle practices.

After all, I'm quite sure you're one of the nearly 100% of the human race who wants to feel on top of the world.... All the time.
