Did you know that most "vitamins" are actually man-made in labs? They are fractionated chemical substances derived from petroleum oil, coal tar, genetically modified cornstarch, GMO soy, GMO sunflower, and even sulfuric acid! How can you tell if what you are buying is synthetic or a natural whole food vitamin? It is easy, all synthetic vitamins have funny chemical-sounding names required on the label. For example, Vitamin A as Acetate and Palmitate, Vitamin B1 as Thiamine Hydrochloride, Vitamin B12 as Cobalamin, Vitamin C as Ascorbic Acid, and Vitamin D as Calciferol are all synthetic. Some local grocery store examples are processed dairy and non-dairy milk, energy drinks and cereals, boxed rice, vitamin supplements, bakery products, and even pre-packaged fruit juices. Sadly, most dog and cat food products are brimming with synthetic nutrition as well. If the vitamin's potency is higher than anything you would find in nature (e.g., 1000% vitamin B-3 per serving), the product likely contains synthetic ingredients.
What can consumers do to ensure they are receiving the nutrients their bodies require? Be vigilant and read all your product's ingredients before purchasing! If you want to find a genuine vitamin supplement, look for one with a label that indicates "naturally occurring food sources." Fortunately, our products such as the Purely Pak, Purely C, Purely B, Purely E, and Polar Power offer just what the body desires.
