ALL VITAMINS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL! We now know that the type of vitamins you consume DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
There are various grades of vitamins which are indicative of their quality – agricultural grade, used for veterinary purposes; cosmetic, nutritional grade (these substances are not tested for purity dissolution or absorption and they might not have a high concentration of their listed active ingredient. Medical grade – these supplements are a high grade (prenatal vitamins are usually in this category); and then there is pharmaceutical grade. Supplements of this grade meet the highest regulatory requirements for purity, dissolution (ability to be dissolved) and absorption.
"There is overwhelming evidence confirming that vitamin deficiencies are associated with a myriad of disease processes as well as the overall condition of your health. Nutrient status is a vital foundation of health and each micronutrient plays an indispensable role in promoting optimal functioning of our cells. When cells do not function at their best, the foundation of our health is compromised, setting the stage for the development of disease. Because each of us is metabolically and bio-chemically different, the micronutrient requirements for one person are often different than the requirements for another. Every individual has unique deterrents to the absorption of nutrients. EVEN IF YOU EAT A BALANCED DIET, EXERCISE, AND TAKE A MULTI-VITAMIN, THAT DOESN’T MEAN YOU ARE SUPPLYING YOUR BODY WITH WHAT IT NEEDS BASED ON YOUR UNIQUE GENETIC MAKEUP. You could be potentially throwing away your money taking things not needed or that don’t work.
Supplements that are not pharmaceutical grade can contain toxic metals, such as arsenic, lead, mercury or cadmium. They can also contain pesticides, fungicides, insecticides and other toxic ingredients.
Unfortunately, there are no home tests available to test the vitamin’s contents and bioavailability. Whether or not the supplements will work for you depends on factors including its form, purity, bioavailability and third-party verification. Many forms of nutrients are not bio-available (they pass through the body without being absorbed into the blood stream). The quality of vitamins and nutrients you consume determines the quality of your cells, how well they function, and their ability to prevent disease.
Every year over 75% of your body is reconstructed from the nutrients you eat and take. This includes the DNA in your cells.
