It Pays to Take Your Vitamins (Whole Food Derived)
After 20 years, the American Medical Association (AMA) has completely reversed its anti-vitamin stance and now encourages all adults to supplement daily with a multiple vitamin.
A landmark review of 38 years of scientific evidence by Harvard researchers, Dr. Robert Fletcher and Dr. Kathleen Fairfield, convinced the conservative Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) to rewrite its policy guidelines regarding the use of vitamin supplements. In two reports, published in the June 19, 2002 edition of JAMA, the authors conclude that the current North American diet, while sufficient to prevent vitamin deficiency diseases (such as scurvy and pellagra), is totally inadequate to support the need for optimal health. Insufficient vitamin intake is apparently a cause of chronic disease. Recent evidence has shown that sub-optimal levels of vitamins (below standard), even well above those causing deficiency syndromes, are risk factors for chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and osteoporosis. A large portion of the general population (about 90%) is apparently at increased risk for this reason.
In the study, the authors examine several nutrients, including vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E, K, folic acid and several of the beta-carotene, cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, lycopene and lutein. Among their conclusions they note: folic acid, vitamin B6 and B12 are required for proper homocystene metabolism, and low levels of the vitamins are associated with increased risk of heart disease; inadequate folic acid status increases the risk of neural tube defects and some cancers: vitamin E and lycopene appear to decrease the risk of prostate cancer: vitamin D is associated with a decreased risk of osteoporosis and fracture, when taken with calcium: inadequate vitamin B12 is associated with anemia and neurological disorders: low levels of the carotenoids appear to increase the risk of breast, prostate and lung cancer: inadequate vitamin C is associated with increased cancer risk: low vitamin A status is associated with vision disorders and impaired immune function.
From What Source Should Your Vitamins Come
The majority of vitamin supplements on the market today are made in a laboratory from synthetic compounds. Some are even derived from sterilized raw sewerage. In addition, they are basically unabsorbable and a waste of money.
Our bodies are organic, made up of minerals and water. Putting anything synthetic into our metabolic system causes major complications because our digestive system, liver and kidneys cannot recognize nor properly metabolize these foreign substances. The damage these compounds cause far out ways the benefits.
Only "Whole Food" derived vitamins and minerals can be properly assimilated by our systems and recognized for their nutritional value. BUYER BEWARE! The words "Natural or All Natural" do not mean that the supplements are derived from whole food sources. Over 95% of the supplements found on shelves, even in health food stores are completely or partially synthetic in nature.
