Synthetics are acceptable in many forms, but as many healthcare professionals agree, they don’t belong in our food or in our supplements.
You might be surprised to learn that most vitamins in supplements are petroleum extracts, coal tar derivatives, chemically-processed sugar, and sometimes industrially-processed fish oils with other acids and industrial chemicals (such as formaldehyde) used to process them.
Most minerals in supplements are ground up rock (limestone, chalk, etc.) processed with industrial chemicals. Most supplements use chemical preservatives, binders, and/or flow agents like the ubiquitous magnesium stearate. Stir in some chemical herbicides and pesticides and you have a synthetic feast of horrors.
In fact 98.7% of all supplements on the market are chemical synthetics. This includes many that label themselves as “natural” or “food based.” It’s very deceiving. Common synthetics include Ascorbic acid, Calcium carbonate, Folic acid, Vitamin E acetate, and Zinc oxide, but the list goes on.
The truth is in the label.
Dr. Thiel says, “There is a relatively easy way to tell if minerals are industrial chemicals. Whenever there are two words on a label describing a mineral, it is logical to conclude that the substance is an industrial mineral product and not 100% food. The exception is chromium GTF (the GTF stands for Glucose Tolerance Factor) which is food if it is from nutritional yeast.”
