Are All Vitamins the Same?

/, Health/Are All Vitamins the Same?

“Aren’t all vitamins the same?  Why can’t I just get the cheap ones? Don’t they all do the same thing?”

These are very good questions and ones that we frequently hear, so I put together this chart to show you the difference in vitamins that you may be purchasing.

The 3 Types of Vitamins:

 

  1. Test Tube or Synthetic  (Usual drug store or discount store vitamins)–made in a test tube in a lab, to resemble the real thing. This is toxic to the body and does more harm than good.

**Imagine a Plastic Lemon from the store with juice in it. This type is the Plastic lemon with NO juice. That is basically what  you are eating if you take these.

  • No enzymes
  • Man-made
  • Inorganic substances
  • Stimulant
  • Side effects
  • Can actually be more harmful to your health to take!

2. Crystalline or Extracted (**Usual health food store variety)–these start out natural, but are heated through the processing, so all live enzymes are killed. You end up with a partially live vitamin, if live at all. Most of these have harsh binders and fillers, plastic coatings, and some even contain tar.

**This is the Plastic Lemon with juice. IF you can get past the plastic coating, there is a little bit of real stuff in there. However, the juice has been heated so it’s not really like drinking it freshly squeezed.

  • Weak enzymes
  • Uses chemical and heat extraction
  • Organic substances (low quality raw materials)
  • Stimulant
  • Imbalanced
  • Harsh binder and fillers

3. Natural / Unaltered (**Shaklee food supplements and other whole food supplements)–Cold pressed to extract the vitamins, all enzymes remain alive so you get something as close to nature as possible

**This is the REAL lemon…unaltered and fresh. What’s inside is alive and natural.

  • Strong enzymatic action
  • Low heat, low pressure process
  • Organic substances
  • Feeds and improves cell’s health
  • Balanced
  • Contains essential unknown nutrients

**X brands need only 10% natural ingredients to legally be classified as “All-Natural.”  Shaklee food supplements are 100% natural!
