I was reading a Yahoo article and I was blown away by what it said. The author claimed that vitamins are potentially deadly if you take too many of them. Actually, there have been several publications that make this claim. I am sure that you have heard this before somewhere along the lines and today I want to debunk this myth once and for all.
Ok, let’s think about this logically. Have you ever heard of someone overdosing on spinach? Or eating too many oranges? When is the last time you heard of a person going to the ER for eating too many grapes? I feel pretty confident in saying that you never have. So if the vitamins we are eating are made truly from whole foods how could they possibly harm our bodies? Don’t think too hard about this one…they can’t!
The problem is not the vitamins. Vitamin are essential to holistic health an necessary for proper bodily functions. If it is not the vitamins harming us than how can these publications make these outrageous claims? The problem is the manufacturers, marketing firms, and companies who sell you a product that claim to be “healthy” for you. Modern nutrition or better put, lack of nutrition, is to blame for negative national media attention on vitamins. Industry no longer cares what we put in our bodies as long as a pretty penny is made from our consumption.
Roughly 90% of vitamin supplements on the market are saturated with toxins, chemicals, and preservatives. The supplement industry packs our “vitamins” with these harmful substances so they can keep their product on the shelves. Their goal is to sell and make a profit and certainly not to benefit your health. It is not the whole food vitamins that give suplements a bad name it is the chemicals they mix in that do harm to the body.
These writers that know absolutely nothing about holistic nutrition are brain washing the public to believe supplementing is dangerous. The reality supplementing with whole food vitamins is the single most important aspect to our health. In today’s fast paced world even the healthiest of Americans are not even close to getting the essential nutrition we need to function properly and steer clear of sickness and disease. I can not stress enough how important it is to supplement with whole food vitamins!
I strongly encourage you to use whole food vitamins on a daily basis. It would be awful nice to never get sick and feel 100% energized every single day, right? This is exactly what supplementing has done for my body. I used to get sick 4 to 5 times per year for 2 or more weeks at a time. Now that I am educated on what goes into my body my immune system is functioning on all cylinders and I rarely even feel tired!
