Whole Food Vitamins vs. Synthetic
Whole food vitamins
- supplements made from food and not synthetics made
in the laboratory.
Most brands of supplements
available today are made from synthetics material. These are chemical compounds that have been
manufactured in a laboratory to copy the molecular
structure of natural vitamins.
Your body normally gets
nutrients from food. Thus obtaining your vitamins from whole food
supplements, (real food) will allow the body to
actually use the nutrients in the supplement.
Synthetic vitamins are not recognized by the body as
food and aren't assimilated well. In fact,
synthetic vitamins can even clog up the metabolic
There are two
needs for supplements
One is to get the nutrients
that your body needs on a daily basis that you
probably don't get in the food you eat. With today's processed foods, which often
doesn't have all the nutrients you need, it is important to
supplement your diet so that your body
second need is to provide the body with the specific
nutrients it needs to address the cause of a body problem. Deficiencies in essential
nutrients can contribute to all sorts of disease
to expect when you take whole food nutrients?
Will it be like a drug that forces the body to do
something, but which has side effects because it is
foreign to the body? No. Reducing or
reversing problems can take time. Your body has to go
through the process of building healthy cells.
are constantly making new cells to replace old cells.
Old cells might have been made with insufficient
nutrients. When you give the body the right
nutrients, you will get new healthy cells.
For example, it is well known that a broken bone heals
in about 6 weeks.
During that time, the area of the break will
continue to hurt on and off even as it gets better. You may also be aware that if you give your body the
nutrients it needs to build healthy bones, the healing
will be quicker and you will have less pain.
when you start taking supplements, you may not feel a
difference immediately. It can take time for the cells to
rebuild and any change or relief from your symptoms
tells you that progress is being made and it will
continue to get better.
Generally, you will notice a change in the first
couple of weeks, but everyone is different.
An example of this is taking supplements for
neuropathy. The nerves are the most sensitive cells in the body. When they are damaged
they can create a great deal of pain, numbness, and if
a motor nerve is damaged the muscles will effect
a person's coordination and create weakness. If you want to
just cover up the pain, you can take a drug, herb, or a
topical cream, but if you want lasting relief, you
want to give the body the nutrients it needs to build
healthy nerves. It may take some time though.
Each person has their own genetic makeup and it can
take different amounts of time for this.
This is important to know. Iíve known a number of
people who gave up taking needed nutrients because
they didnít get quick results thus robbing
themselves of the relief that they seek.
Any condition probably took years to create, and
although it won't take the same amount of time to fix,
give your body some time before you give up on
course, I've known some people who take the needed
nutrients and get very quick results. That can
always be the case, but if it takes longer, just know
that you will be a healthier person by continuing to
give your body what it needs.
