Harmful Dietary Supplements
Are you aware that your supplements most likely contain harmful ingredients? This is a problem many people are facing today. With increasingly poor nutrition, we rely on a supplement to fill in those gaps more than ever. So what happens when the brand you trust is actually giving you an impure, unnatural, and eventually harmful product? The sad truth is the supplement world is full of wolves. It is so easy to get drawn in and deceived when taking supplements that you thought where honest vitamins and minerals.
The thing is, it goes much further than vitamins and minerals. You have to ask this one crucial question: where are these vitamins and minerals sourced? Many people are confused about the misleading information on supplement labels. It leaves us completely bamboozled and wondering, “what’s really inside?” On the bright side, this is going to forever liberate you from those wicked products that are ruining your body. Before I bog down your emotions completely, let me clarify and show you some significant ingredients to look out for.
First off, if a label says it’s natural, it does not necessarily mean its natural or good for you. (Petroleum is “natural.”) The only way to find out is to look at the ingredients yourself and separate the weeds from the grass.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)
The first ingredient to look out for is Ascorbic Acid. Ascorbic Acid is found in vitamin C supplements and is not only synthetic, it is harmful to the human body. A study found that adults taking small doses were harmed in the long run, and when taking doses of 1000 mg of this synthetic vitamin C, their energy systems were severely impaired. It weakens the mitochondria of the cell and severely messes with endurance. Ascorbic Acid has also been linked with causing all sorts of nervous system problems down the line.
Now for B-12, if it does not contain these active names for the vitamin B-12 it is most likely synthetic:
1) Thiamine (B1): Thiamine pyrophosphate; Thiamine triphosphate
2) Riboflavin (B2): Riboflavin-5-phosphate; Flavin mononucleotide (FMN)
3) Niacin (B3): Nicotinamide (adenine dinucleotide)
4) Pantothenic acid (B5): Pantethine
5) Pyridoxine (B6): Pyridoxal-5-phosphate
6) Folic acid: Folinic acid; 5-methyl tetrahydrofolate
7) Cobalamin (B12): Methylcobalamin; Adenosylcobalamin
8) Choline: Phosphatydlcholic
Natural B vitamins will be referred to as “active B vitamins” on the supplement label. In Harmful Dietary Supplements Part 2, I will discuss the other vitamins you need to look out for, such as vitamin A, vitamin E, and minerals. Right now, make sure you get rid of all those fake supplements lurking in your cabinet. If you’re trying to replace your fake vitamin C do it with Truvani and if you are trying to replace your vitamin B-12 Switch to wholesome Natural active B-12
Look, I know this may be a bit of a shocker, and it might ruin part of your day BUT think about how much healthier your future will be and how blessed you are to have access to the truth here at Finding Natural Nutrition. I hope you restore justice and liberty to your supplement cabinet and as always have a wonderful day.
