Before we get into any possible detriments of typical multi-vitamins, let's first ask a simple question...

Do humans really need vitamins piled into a pill to be healthy?

And the answer is a big fat NO!

Let's just think about it from a logical perspective... humans did just fine for 10's of thousands of years without artificially concentrating vitamins into a pill. Multi-vitamins have only been around for a few decades, but people somehow survived and lived long lives prior to that.

But the problem is that the majority of the population in today's overly processed food world doesn't eat the nutritious diet that our hunter/gatherer ancestors did.

And what about the argument that many people give which claims that all of our soils are worn out and no longer provide the nutrients in our produce that we used to get, even just 100 years ago?

Well, this is both true and false. Sure there is a large amount of farmland where the soil has been abused by chemical fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, erosion, and lack of crop rotation.

However, there are also small local farms in every area of the world where the soil has been treated right, and you can still get TONS of nutrition from the produce that's grown on those fields. Plus, if you have your own garden, YOU'RE the one in control of the quality of the soil, and therefore, the quality and nutrition levels of the produce you grow on it.

So do ALL of us really need a multi-vitamin?

No, not as long as you eat a great variety of vegetables, fruits, eggs, nuts, seeds, grass-fed meats, wild fish, and other nutrient-rich un-processed foods that were grown or raised correctly... PLUS, as long as you avoid junk foods and things such as soda beverages that actually deplete nutrients from your body.

So THAT is where the problem comes in...

While some people do eat a tremendously healthy diet and avoid junk foods and soda, the vast majority of the population eats a fair amount of junk foods, fast food, sodas and other sweetened drinks, candies, cookies, etc, etc.

This means that not only are they harming their body with the junk foods and nutrient depleting sodas, but since a significant portion of their calories are coming from micronutrient-deficient foods, they are usually lacking in some micro-nutrients.

So, in this case... Yes, a multi-vitamin can come in handy.

But there's another problem with most Multi-vitamins...

Most multi-vitamins contain artificial forms of certain vitamins and many of these have been proven to have detrimental effects in the body and/or reduce the assimilation in the body compared to the natural forms of vitamins.

For example, there are plenty of research studies on synthetic vitamin E vs natural vitamin E... many studies not only show that synthetic vitamin E has lower absorption by the body, but also that the body excretes synthetic vitamin E faster than natural. There is also evidence that synthetic vitamin E might even have detrimental effects in the body.

The same goes for other synthetic vitamins vs natural forms of the same vitamins.

While I don't personally take a multi-vitamin, I do recommend one if your diet contains more than 10-20% of your calories from processed food, such as breads, sweetened drinks, crackers, cookies, donuts, sweet desserts, chips, or if you drink a lot of alcohol.

The best multi-vitamin that I've found is called VGF-25 and it's actually produced from natural forms of vitamins, mostly extracted from 25 different vegetables, greens, and fruits, such as:

*Kelp
*Wheat grass
*Broccoli
*Kale
*Collard Greens
*Spinach
*Cauliflower
*Barley grass
*Chlorella
*and 16 others -- up to 25 different veggies, fruits, and greens

Better yet, even the Vitamin D in this comes from a fish liver oil, so that you can be assured it's from a natural source, instead of synthetic vitamin D.

Like this ancient story about holding on to things we need to let go of:

TWO MONKS & A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN

Two monks were on a journey when they came to a river where a beautifully dressed woman was standing.

As she did not want to ruin her lovely clothes, she asked them to carry her to the other side. The two monks glanced at one another because they had taken vows not to touch a woman.

Then, without a word, the older monk picked up the woman, carried her across the river, placed her gently on the other side, and carried on his journey.

The younger monk couldn't believe what had just happened. After rejoining his companion, he was speechless, and an hour passed without a word between them.

Two more hours passed, then three, finally the younger monk could contain himself no longer, and blurted out "How could you do that, when you made a vow not to even touch a woman!"

The older monk looked at him and replied, "Oh, are you still carrying her? I put her down hours ago."

Great story huh?

  1. Just received a check for $500.

    Sometimes people don't believe me when I tell them about how much you can earn by taking paid surveys from home...

    So I took a video of myself actually getting paid over $500 for doing paid surveys.
