What's In Your Multivitamin?
What's in your multivitamin?
When you are looking for your next multivitamin at a local health food store or the grocery store, take a second and flip the bottle over to look at the nutrition label. When you read over the ingredient list and come across words that you can't pronounce or have no idea what the ingredient is, leave it on the shelf.
These words can include, polyethylene glycol, polydextrose, BHT, microcrystalline cellulose, carnauba wax or hydroxypropyl methylcellulose. Some of these “multivitamins” contain dyes that give them a pretty color but serve no health purpose. Blue 2 Lake, Red 40 Lake and Yellow 6 Lake, all of which are known carcinogens.
Instead, look for your next supplement to have ingredients on the label that you can recognize as something you could grow or eat as real food. A whole food supplement label should have ingredients that contain foods like, carrots, sweet potatoes, liver, alfalfa, pea vine juice, mushrooms powder oat flour, kale, brussels sprouts, green vegetables, sunflower, ETC.
Remember that whole food in all of its complexity will always be healthier than any man-made isolated nutrient.
