Whole Food Vitamins vs Synthetic Vitamins – what’s the difference?

Synthetic Vitamins

Many mainstream multivitamin supplements contain synthetic vitamins. Synthetic vitamins are synthetic chemical isolates made in a lab: they are created to try and mimic the vitamin benefits that their natural equivalents - found in food - offer. But synthetic vitamins only provide isolated or fractionated pieces of the whole vitamin. This is because synthetic vitamins don’t contain the full benefit that nature intended. Traditionally by taking isolated vitamins we are getting high doses of some vitamins (in some cases over 200% the RDI) but not enough of others. Your body may not be able to utilise high doses of vitamins, which is why it often excretes what it can’t use. It might surprise you to know that many vitamins available in Australia are synthetic. Whilst they're good for you, they lack the naturally occurring nutrients found in whole foods.  

Nature’ Way Whole Food Vitamins

Whole-Food based supplements are different. The vitamin content of a whole food vitamin is 100% derived from food sources, with no synthetic or artificial vitamins added. This includes Vitamins from fruits, veggies, herbs and super foods from gardens, orchards, farms and the ocean. Vitamins from whole foods come with the additional health benefits of other naturally occurring nutrients - including the added micronutrients, cofactors and phytonutrients naturally found in plants and whole foods that work together to provide you a complete health benefit and “whole” vitamin solution. difference_graph

JESSICA SEPEL, NUTRITIONIST

As a nutritionist, health coach and wellness lover, I have experimented with countless vitamin brands. Nature’s Way Whole Food Vitamins is the only product I’ve found that gets my “JSHealth tick of approval”. I am very careful and particular with what I recommend to my clients and when these vitamins first came across my desk, I was honestly impressed. These are one of the first products I’ve seen that are made of 100% real wholefoods – not a single synthetic vitamin added. This is almost unheard of. Wouldn’t you prefer that your vitamins came from a natural source? I have to admit that, up until recently, I was taking plenty of synthetic supplements. While I think they can have a place and be very supportive for some, I truly believe that the body can better absorb vitamins that come from whole foods. It makes sense, doesn’t it? The body knows how to break down natural ingredients with ease. Nature’s Way Whole Food Vitamins provides the nutritional benefits from fruits, vegetables, herbs, and sea vegetables from farms, forests and the ocean, providing a concentrated dose in a convenient and economical form. What does this mean for you? • You may not need the high doses usually found in synthetic vitamins. • Your body absorbs additional nutrients the way nature intended – which helps you achieve better health. • You can top up your daily nutritional requirements with a natural food based vitamin. • It’s a 100% gluten-free, vegan, and non-GMO range of vitamins. Wouldn’t you prefer your multi to be natural, vegan and gluten-free? I know I would, and I would certainly want this for my clients too! There is truly something for everyone, and I love that the nutritional information is readily available on the bottle. No more guessing what’s in your vitamin – or what it’s designed to do for you.
