We all were unaware of the fact that 97% of the vitamins that we are taking regularly have some dangerous ingredients.
These medicines are produced by big pharmaceutical companies. For example, Centrum is a product of the Pharma giant Wyeth. Numerous supplements are also sold by Unilever, Novartis, GlaxoSmithKline and other big pharmaceutical firms, and a great part of them are high in artificial additives, synthetic flow agents, chemical colorings, and even imitation vitamin compounds, which cannot be completely developed by the body as it does not identify them.
Here are some of the facts about supplements that you need to know:
Supplements and pills resulting from whole foods treat many, but not all synthetic vitamin deficiencies. Numerous supplements, especially multivitamins, are not derived from edible foods but are a product of synthetically manufactured substances. These substances are often not absorbed well, and if in high amounts, they have disastrous effects. Long-term epidemiological data shows that typical multi-nutritional vitamins do not provide many health benefits.
