Are synthetic vitamins bad for you or not? From my viewpoint, synthetic vitamins should not be taken on a regular basis to support your health.
Taking synthetic vitamin supplements for a short time during a detox is different. I believe taking them regularly for a long period could create some problems.
98% of vitamins sold are made synthetically. Just because synthetic vitamins are similar to natural vitamins doesn’t make them as healthy. Even the actual form of a synthetic vitamin is different from a natural vitamin.
A few main problems with synthetic vitamins:
• They have a low absorption rate
• They don’t contain all of the cofactors that come with vitamins in nature
• They have residual traces of solvents and chemical compounds
• Synthetic fat-soluble vitamins have some significant potential side effects
• They can contain additives, preservatives, flavorings, and colorings
Consuming nutrient-dense foods is the best way to get your vitamins and nutrients. But, it can be difficult to find foods that contain all of the nutrients you need.
Natural vitamin supplements have a lot fewer side effects and are much more bioavailable than synthetic supplements. They also come in their natural complexes and don’t contain harmful chemicals, solvents, additives, etc. that could be in synthetic vitamins.
One way to identify a synthetic vitamin supplement is to look at the RDAs on the label. If the RDAs are in very high amounts, you know it’s probably synthetic. In nature, you will see varying degrees of amounts, so if everything across the board is 100%—you know it’s probably a synthetic supplement.
Overall, there can be some pros to certain synthetic vitamins, but there are definitely some cons. Not to mention, there are way more pros when you consume natural whole-food vitamins.
If you can go for the natural vitamins—do it. Even better yet, consume nutrient-dense foods. Check out my other videos for more information about a healthy diet and nutrient-dense foods.
