The Real Truth About Supplements


Not All Supplements are Created Equal. There are more supplements available than I would care to count and keep track of. So what is the biggest difference between all the different supplements? In my world you can divide all supplements into two categories:

1. Whole Food Supplements
2. Chemically Manufactured Supplements

If you follow along with the supplement news you will know that they are always discovering a new vitamin, a new cofactor, a new mineral, a new this or that. Now let me ask you a question, is it really "new" or did man just discover it. Of course, man has just discovered the importance of it.

Nature is great. She provides everything we need in nature. Or said another way, these new vitamins, minerals, cofactors and other newly discovered essential minerals are already found in nature in whole foods. Even if we don't know about them yet nature has always had them in our food. So when whole food supplements are made they already have and have always had all these newly discovered ingredients. Now let me ask you a question. If we as humans just discovered something, do you think the chemically manufactured supplements have this newly discovered thing in it? NOPE! The only place to get all the cofactors, minerals and essential nutrients before we know about them is whole food supplements.

A perfect example is Vitamin C. Everyone says vitamin c is the same thing as ascorbic acid. That is like saying an egg shell is the same things as an entire egg. They are completely different. Ascorbic acid is only the "shell" around what is the rest of Vitamin C. But when most people manufacture Vitamin C, they just manufacture the shell or what is ascorbic acid. Whole foods have then entire "inside" of every nutrient the whole foods supplements are supplying.

You can get good vitamin and mineral sources, or you can get cheap, not so good, imitation vitamins with parts missing. Which one do you think will be better for you? Of course, the ones that are whole, complete, and have everything your body needs to build itself healthy and strong again.

This means if you are going to take supplements, make sure you get them from a good source. If the supplements are really cheap, well, you usually get what you pay for. One of the best sources I have ever found is a company called Standard Process. www.standardprocess.com The only problem with them is you cannot buy them yourself. You have to go through some doctor or other health care professional. I get nothing to recommend these supplements to you, that is how much I like them.

There are other good lines of supplements as well. LifePak? by Pharmanex is also a great option. You can find out how to get these and other supplements at my website www.bazuji.com.
