Get Your Vitamins from Food.
There is a big difference between food and lab-synthesized or isolated vitamins. Food contains numerous co-factors and other compounds that enable our bodies to utilize the vitamins in the food. For instance, a carrot contains many carotenes, some of which are classified as Vitamin A. The body knows what to do with these carotenes to maximize health. As isolated in a supplement, Vitamin A, especially in the absence of lipids, not only ceases to be helpful but actually in higher doses can do damage to the liver.
Vitamins are Key
Not the best Option.
Vitamins come from Food!
What is a Vitamin? A Vitamin is a substance that your body cannot produce on its own and must be obtained from food. What makes vitamins different from essential fatty acids and essential amino acids is that they are only required in small amounts to have a major impact on health and vitality. Vitamins C and E are known as antioxidants and prevent cell damage caused by free-radicals. B Vitamins work in conjunction with enzymes in catalyzing metabolic functions, helping your body to manufacture needed molecules.
