Food-Based or Synthetic Supplements: Does It Matter?

Most of us were taught the importance of nutrition and how taking supplements helps to support the minerals and vitamins we aren’t getting through our diet. Most of our education on the subject of supplements ended there, but it shouldn’t have. With the desire to live a long healthy life many are blindly taking supplements that are simply not doing the job because the truth is, vitamins are not created equally.

What are Synthetic and Food-Based Supplements?

Synthetic Supplements are just as they sound, human-made. It’s common knowledge that foods consumed in their most natural states are the best. Today, processed foods are very different from their original state. The same thing goes for synthetic vitamins. These are vitamins that are made artificially through an industrial process using chemicals. They are bonded with ingredients that are designed to mimic natural vitamins, and our bodies recognize this. For example, you may think that you’re consuming a calcium supplement, but it may be filled with other minerals that are foreign to the body. Therefore, your body will try to remove as much of it as possible. This means a very little amount of synthetic calcium will be entering your body.

Food-Based Supplements are close to what nature intended as they closely match the vitamin complexes found in nature. They are typically made by growing nutrients in yeast or harvested in their wild state. These food-based supplements usually contain the cofactors required to assist the body with the absorption of the nutrients making them more effective.

Benefits of Food-Based Natural Supplements

  • Your body can easily absorb nutrients from natural supplements and much more readily than it can absorb synthetic supplements. When naturally produced, vitamins and minerals are in better harmony with you.
  • Natural supplements are extracted from food that is suitable for consumption by human beings. Ingredients derived from foods that aren’t suitable for human consumption should be avoided because it’s not natural and your body won’t benefit from it.
  • Most people consume excessive calories found in synthetic supplements in pursuit of natural ingredients. However, natural foods cut straight to the chase by complimenting healthy meals.

At New Earth, we take the quality and purity or our food-based supplements seriously. You will find one ingredient in every supplement we offer, Organic Wild Microalgae®. Our Wild Microalgae is a fragile organism. It takes sophisticated technological know-how to harvest, cool, process, and dry in a way that preserves its delicate balance of nutrients. It goes from harvest to quick cooling to multiple cleanings to water removal to fast freezing and storage, all in a few hours.

We are responsible for getting products out of the wild and to your table. Albert Einstein once said, “The only source of knowledge is experience.” We agree.
