Is it safe to take Vitamins?

There was a time when a lot of us felt that taking vitamin supplements were at best a very good idea, and at worst, not going to hurt anything. That time has passed and I have shared here and in the office, with anyone who would listen, the developments of the past 10-15 years on that subject.

Now we know that, first off, when ever possible and practical we should be taking whole food supplements: no man-made formula will ever come close to having the same qualities. So while it might work to treat some diseases with some formulas some of the time for some people, our focus of promoting health is best done with whole food supplements – for almost everyone, almost all of the time. Secondly though, we have been seeing more and more evidence that two things we thought were probably true of the individual and multivitamin formula supplements, may not be true at all: namely, that what they claim to have in them may not be there; and what should not be in them sometimes is.

Lastly, and the point of this Post, is that even if the supplements have what they claim in the bottle, and there are no contaminants, the individual vitamin approach is flawed.

Stick with whole foods in your diet; stick with whole foods in supplementing your diet.

You already know what I recommend on both scores if you have been reading this Blog for very long (search JuicePlus+, Blue Green Algae, Bee Pollen, Vitamin C, etc. in the search box).
