Synthetic vs. Whole Food Vitamins -

Here's How to Understand the Difference


Really comprehending the difference between a nutritional supplement made from an isolated synthetic fragment in a laboratory and a whole food supplement made from actual live plants can augment your resolve to get the real thing, and can immunize you against the onslaught of slick advertisements showing incredibly healthy, good looking people involved in outdoor activities in the shining sun.

Here's a way to 'get it'. Suppose two people were identical twins and one died.

If science were to undertake a chemical analysis of those two bodies, identical twins, one dead, one alive, the chemical analysis would demonstrate no appreciable difference between the two.

However, you and I know without the help of any science at all that there is a profound difference between the two, especially in biological activity.

Currently science uses chemical analysis of molecules to assess nutritional products, and that process does not take in to account - or even notice, for that matter - the difference between something that's alive and something that's dead.

To see this difference would require a different process such as a chromatogram - an analytical technique that identifies components of a solution by means of color absorbed by filter paper. which produces a color 'fingerprint' of the tested substance.
