Why You Should Choose Natural Vitamin Supplements Over Synthetic

As a fitness and health nut for over 30 years I have some pretty strong opinions in the field of health and fitness. When it comes to supplements I have to agree with many of the other experts in the field, that natural is always better.

The problem with many synthetic vitamins is that you don't truly know what you are putting in your body, do you? Contrary to those artificially created types, natural vitamins have ONLY natural ingredients.

One major point that is a good reason for sticking with all natural vitamins is the absorption factor. Your body absorbs the natural vitamins more readily because it recognizes them as nutrients. The body is hard to trick, sometimes the synthetics that are designed to fool the body are not taken in.

Some people are also adopting the practice of taking a synthetic vitamin during a meal to give better chances for being absorbed correctly. Wouldn't it be much better if you just got your daily vitamin requirement from natural sources?

There are a lot of products on the market now that say that they are 100% natural. You will be able to find some food packages that also act as natural supplements. Any supplements that are as close to nature as possible will be easier to absorb.

Many of these natural foods are very good for you and give you the nutritional requirements that your body needs such as enzymes and anti-oxidants. All of these components work together to give your body the nutrients that it needs. The only way to know for sure exactly what you will need for your body is to consult a nutritionist and have them create a regimen for you.

The best way to get started on a routine to keep your body healthy is a well balanced natural diet that focuses on foods that are as close to their natural state as possible. The natural vitamin supplements available on the market can provide your body with all the nutrients your body needs to be healthy and perform optimally. If you have some certain vitamin deficiencies you may have to take even more intense supplements.

The best course of action is to consult a nutritionist who can take a close look at your current nutritional habits and help you to create the right nutritional program just for you. Just remember that natural vitamin supplements will always be better than the synthetic version.
