What's in Your Vitamins
A New Study in the JAMA Exposes Dangers with Synthetic Vitamins
Study in JAMA says Synthetic Vitamins May Increase Death Risk
The study is published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 297 #8
The researchers pointed out that the studies they examined only used synthetic supplements, and therefore their observations and conclusions do not apply to natural whole food supplements like URI The Feast ( http://www.urilife.net ) and antioxidants such as those found in fruit and vegetables.
When looked at separately they found that synthetic Vitamin A increased death risk by 16 per cent, isolated and synthesized non-whole-food source beta carotene by 7 per cent and mega doses of synthetic Vitamin E by 4 per cent. The results for Ascorbic Acid synthetic mega-dose Vitamin C were not so clear, but by looking at the best quality trials there was a suggestion that it increased death risk by 6 per cent, either on its own or in combination with other supplements.
The overall conclusion of the study was that on balance, the best quality research shows that synthetic or non-whole-food source mega-dose beta carotene, vitamin A and vitamin E may increase mortality risk, but vitamin C needs further study.
A spokesperson for the synthetic and me ga-dose multi-vitamin provider industry said the research was "flawed" because it included studies conducted on people who were already sick.
The researchers say there are several potential reasons for these results. One is that the free radicals that are thought to cause the oxidative stress are the byproduct rather than the cause of disease.
They added however that this study is important for public health reasons because between 10 and 20 per cent of people in Europe and North America take synthetic or non-whole-food source mega-dose dietary supplements.
Nutritionists say that instead of taking synthetic and mega-dose multi-vitamin supplements the best way to protect your health is through natural, whole-food plant based supplementation, drink plenty of fluids, exercise, and eat a balanced diet.
For the best bang for the buck, you can't beat URI International The Feast Whole Food supplements. They contain 71 different anti-oxidant rich, live whole food based vega tables, fruits, berries, grass, nut, sprouts and seeds. They are dried in a process that takes organically grown produce and dries it into a powder in less than 60 seconds without ever going above 100 degrees in tempature. Besides picking the vegetables and fruits yourself and raw juicing them, there is not a cheaper alternative on the market that gives you all of the best in fruits and vegetables.
