Vitamins are organic molecules that you need, but your body can’t produce them. Food is what keeps your body stocked with these essential nutrients. That’s why nutrition is fundamental to your body’s health.
You used to be able to get all the vitamins necessary for your body solely from a healthy diet, but now our food is getting less and less nutritious. Even if you avoid food with GMOs and eat organic produce, your food has fewer nutrients in it than in the past. Suboptimal intake of vitamins is a risk factor for chronic diseases and is common in the general population.
Vitamin supplements fill the gaps where your diet lacks. The modern diet of heavily processed food, overly salted, and filled with added sugars are shown to be causing about 90% of todays chronic diseases and cancers…. diseases and cancers that could otherwise be reversed or prevented with a change in what we are eating. Your daily vitamin intake should ideally come from food sources as much as possible. Supplements won’t fix a poor diet and should never take the place of food for nutrition. However, when picking the best options for vitamins it can get confusing. What kind do you need? What is the difference between whole food and synthetic vitamins?
Synthetic vitamins are widely available and normally more affordable, but they are not what our bodies are looking for. Almost all multivitamins are made from synthetics. This is also true for fortified foods. Synthetic vitamins are isolated or simulated nutrients that typically do not include all of the countless phytonutrients that we find in healthy foods.
Major differences between synthetic and natural whole food vitamins:
- Synthetic vitamins are made from chemicals to mimic the natural way your body absorbs nutrients from food
- Synthetic vitamins are difficult for your body to absorb
- Whole food vitamins condense and concentrate the fruits and vegetables to make vitamins that are natural for your body
- Whole food vitamins are bioavailable and recognizable to your body
Whole food vitamins take large amounts of fruits and vegetables and condense them therefore you get more vitamins without having to eat larger amounts of food.
You can’t eat a crate of oranges in one sitting just to be sure you have enough Vitamin C. But whole food vitamins can give you the exact same nutrition as the food you eat daily, in a more concentrated, easy to consume package. Your body can easily absorb the nutrients from whole food vitamins and you receive all the trace vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and coenzymes often not found in synthetic vitamins.Chiropractic is based on the premise that the body is able to achieve and maintain health through its own natural recuperative powers, provided it has a properly functioning nervous system and receives the necessary health maintaining components. These components include: adequate clean water, proper rest, nutrition, exercise and clean air.
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” – Thomas Edison
