And that’s the problem – 90% of synthetic vitamins pass right through you!  That’s why people joke about Americans having the most expensive urine in the world.

But for some people it’s not funny.  Studies show that synthetic vitamins might even be harmful.


3 Studies

#1. Study using synthetic beta carotene and Vitamin E halted.

29,000 male smokers were given synthetic beta carotene and synthetic Vitamin E. The study was stopped when rates of lung cancer, heart attacks and death increased. - New England Journal of Medicine, 1994

#2. Birth defects increased for women on synthetic supplements
22,000 pregnant women were given synthetic Vitamin A. The study was halted because birth defects increased 400%.  - New England Journal of Medicine, 1995

#3. Men get thickened arteries on synthetic supplements.
Men who took 500 mg of synthetic Vitamin C daily over 18 months showed signs of thickening of the arteries. - Reuters Health, March, 2000

Zoltan P. Rona, M.D., says that while a healthy person will not drop dead immediately after ingesting synthetic supplements, "the long-term consequences of continuous, daily intakes are potentially dangerous."

Reactions include fatigue, memory loss, depression, insomnia and potential liver disorders.
