It can be difficult knowing how to shop for vitamins when there’s so much conflicting information out there. Sometimes, no matter how healthy your diet is, you need to add vitamins for nutrition. But how do you choose the right ones?
Your Dietary Supplement is Harming Your Health
Did you know that your dietary supplement could be bad for you? Sadly, it’s true. Many store-bought commercial vitamin supplements are a nothing more than a concoction of chemicals created in a laboratory. What’s worse is most of these popular store-bought brands are also loaded with dangerous synthetic additives that can cause serious harm to your health.
Here is just a small list of the dangerous preservatives you ingest everyday:
Magnesium Stearate -Magnesium stearate may sound harmless but this toxic preservative has been shown to compromise immune system health. Excessive use of this toxin has even been linked to liver and skin damage.
Sodium Benzoate -Sodium benzoate is a known carcinogen.
Silicon Dioxide –May dramatically lower blood sugar and can cause dehydration and potassium deficiency.
Sodium Glycolate– This pesticide has been linked to infertility, neurological dysfunction, and cancer.
The Right Vitamins for Optimal Nutrition
To see if your dietary supplement could be harming your health, turn the bottle over and read the list of inactive ingredients. If it contains one or more of the above mentioned ingredients or another preservative you can’t pronounce, you’re setting yourself up for serious health problems each time you take it.
Many of my patients come to me suffering from chronic headaches, allergies, gastrointestinal disturbances, and immune system dysfunction and don’t understand what’s causing it. Image their surprise when I tell them the dietary supplement they take everyday could be slowly killing them!
If you want to enjoy good health and get the most nutritional benefit for your dollar, invest in whole food vitamins. Whole food vitamins are derived from plant sources, which means your body will be better able to absorb their healing nutrients.
How to Shop for Vitamins
If you’re wondering how to shop for vitamins, you’re not alone. There are thousands of brands on the market to choose from. The best way to shop for vitamins is to avoid any brand that has a commercial associated with it. Also, skip the grocery store and pharmacy when purchasing your supplements. They’re the worst offenders when it comes to selling low-quality preservative-filled products.
The best place to shop for vitamins is a health food store or online health food distributor. Oftentimes, buying dietary supplements online can save you a lot of money because of reduced overhead. Always be sure you can get a full list of all active and inactive ingredients before purchasing any dietary supplement. Even some so-called health food and nutrition companies will sell products containing dangerous additives.
