Whole Food vs. Synthetic Multivitamins: What’s the Difference?
When shopping for a multivitamin, it’s up to the consumer to decide whether they would prefer to take a whole-food or synthetic product. According to Enzymedica, “the major concern with using synthetic options is that these may be chemically identical to whole food sourced nutrients, but there’s more to what happens when you eat a food than a single nutrient being ingested.”
Let’s take a look at the Garden of Life Vitamin Code Women’s whole food Multivitamin, for example. If you take a closer look at the ingredients list, you’ll see a wide variety of fruits and vegetables that the vitamins and minerals were sourced from. The first 5 ingredients of this particular one are:
- Organic Strawberry
- Organic Cherry
- Organic Blackberry
- Organic Blueberry
- Organic Raspberry
That’s because organic fruits and vegetables contain the nutrients our bodies need to support our health. For average people, it can be difficult to keep up with the recommended daily intake of fruits and vegetables in our every day lives. Whole food multivitamins can help fill in those gaps in our diets and provide a necessary boost of those essential vitamins and minerals.
