Want to be healthy? Of course you do, and you’re not alone. About 67% of Americans regularly take a vitamin or mineral supplement. What most of these people don’t know is a majority of these supplements contain chemically derived synthetic vitamin isolates. In nature, vitamins are found in plant tissues as food-vitamin complexes and are never isolated3, but these tiny, lab-created crystals are physiologically different from vitamins found naturally and don’t influence nutrient absorption and utilization like they should. In fact, several studies have shown that naturally occurring vitamins are better for your body than the chemically synthesized alternatives.
