Nutritional Vitamin Supplements

Here’s a riddle. If nutritional vitamin supplements are meant to make up for dietary deficiencies, shouldn’t they come from human food sources?

Think about it. Humans eat human food. Dogs eat dog food. Cats eat cat food. Birds eat bird food. Cows eat grass. And dung beetles eat dung. That’s the way it’s always been from the beginning of time.

But recently the food supplement industry is trying to change the natural order of things. Almost all health food supplements available today are made from non-human food sources. For example, pycnogenol comes from pine bark, dunaliella salina from pond scum and flaxseed oil (traditionally used to make cloth) is also known as linseed oil for refinishing furniture. Then there’s coral calcium, grape seed extract and weird nontraditional fruits like gac, acai, noni, gogi and mangosteen.

Now when was the last time you had any of these strange ingredients for dinner? Have you ever found one at a salad bar? Do you know of anybody with a deficiency in any of these so-called “super” foods? Of course not!

If these ingredients don’t have a long, safe history of non-toxic, healthy nutritional food value, like that of a carrot or a slice of whole grain bread, then why are so many supplement manufacturers using them in their products? The answer is simple. They’re plentiful and they’re cheap. (In other words, nobody else wants them.) But, scientists don’t really know the long-term negative effects of these non-human foods. Do you want to be their guinea pig?

For instance, take dunalliela salina. It grows in stagnant polluted water, doesn’t require a high school diploma to grow it and no living creature eats it. Plus, it’s certainly not part of the normal human food chain. The presence of pond scum and all the other above ingredients in food supplements is not based on sound nutritional concepts. It’s based on profit margins and hype marketing.

The words “natural” and “whole food” are powerful marketing terms. Most manufacturers will do anything they can, including stretching the truth and inventing stories, to misuse these words for promoting their products and increasing their profits.

But, if you want vitamin supplements that go way beyond “natural,” “whole food” and even “organic,” check out These scientifically based nutritional formulas use human foods, such as traditional fruits, vegetables and whole grains, for the source of their ingredients. And they’re guaranteed to be free from all toxins, heavy metals, pesticides and GMOs. You can’t beat that.

What’s more, the “feel better” program has been proven to work. Thousands of satisfied people in over 40 countries around the world have been using these supplements for over 40 years to look and feel their best - naturally. And they keep going back for more.
