The most frequent ask question in any one's mind before taking any vitamins or supplements: What is this made of? Times have changed in this industry which once save until it became infiltrated by 'cowboys' and with people just to make a quick buck. It is necessary to ask many questions especially by anyone who is becoming health conscious and takes supplements regularly.
Major dietary changes always seem daunting and the word “diet” is terrifying to some people. The word “exercise” may have a similar effect where the mind immediately goes to a sweaty work out seen in a Gym at six o'clock in the morning: running on a tread mill and pushing up weights until you drop.
There are no such drastic changes necessary! Yes, we have to become aware of our diet and select healthy foods or exchange bad foods to natural good foods primarily over time. With exercise it is a similar situation. Yes, we need some exercise combined with a healthy diet because they complement each other.
There are people who use extreme exercise some time for the wrong reason, often to lose weight. Just the opposite is many times the case. By making better food choices the weight will come off without the extreme exercise.
The danger in vitamins and supplements is not known to most of us!
Did you know that there are more than 95% of vitamins, minerals and antioxidant supplements sold in local supermarkets and health food stores, now made by pharmaceutical companies? The very same pharmaceutical and chemical drug companies making conventional drug medicines are supplying most manufacturers to 'produce' vitamin and mineral supplements. This is the classic example of the fox guarding the henhouse!
Knowing the danger of synthetics, avoid synthetic isolates at all cost! By purchasing supplements at discount stores you will be short charging yourself because they typically use cheap synthetic isolates where only profit margins matter to them.
There are serious problems with synthetic vitamins. The body absorbs only a small percentage of an isolate form of vitamins and minerals, and not being natural you get side effects from those ingredients. Not only have they no longer the benefits of the real natural vitamins and minerals, but they actually are quite harmful when taken over long time.
How can you tell the good from the bad?
An example of bad synthetic supplements produced that way include B vitamins. This type of vitamin contains petrochemicals, in most cases synthetics listed on the labels of products as Vitamin B1 (Thiamine), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Vitamin B5 (Calcium – Pantothenate).
Some of the other vitamins are the fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, D, E and K, because they are soluble in fat (Lipids). Those vitamins tend to build up in the body's fat tissues, fat deposits, and liver. This storage makes the fat soluble vitamins potentially toxic and dangerous to health.
Why would you risk potential health consequences from synthetic ingredients and potentially hazardous chemicals? The strong message is: “Avoid Synthetics”! They are not natural and are missing all naturally occurring essentials.
Do your researchers before you buy!
Being vigilant is important in your research if you decide to use any supplements. Check out the company that makes the products and its establishment. Check out the ingredients used, where they originate from, and are they all natural products? Is the company manufacturing the product and has it complete control? When a company turns over the manufacturing process to someone else, they lose control of the products and what goes into it.
The best supplements come in liquid form. There are several reasons for this, but the most important reason is the total and quick absorption in to your body and blood stream without any nutritional value being lost.
There are more answers to the questions you may have! It is important to ask and it is even more important to get the right answers telling you the most needed solutions and satisfaction. No supplement can replace a healthy nutritious diet; it can only replace vitamins and minerals that are missing in your normal food.
