A lot of people today are going crazy over natural products. They say that they are safer and more effective than those formulated in laboratories.
The same debate goes on in the world of vitamin supplements. On one side are the proponents of natural supplements while on the other are the ones for the synthetic variety.
But is there really a difference between the two? Yes and no. Why? Below are the answers.
The most obvious difference between the two is that one is taken from a natural source while the other is formulated in laboratories.
While advocates of natural products claim that theirs is better because natural products are purer, there is no definitive study that they can refer to to prove their claim.
Then there is the price difference. It is no longer news that the so-called natural products(palnt vitamins) are more expensive than their synthetic counterparts.
While the price difference can be justified by the means they are prepared, unless proof is given that one is more effective than the other then there’s no cause for a debate.
But then again, the debate over which is better may never be over since a person will always prefer one thing over the other.
But regardless of the source and the means of producing these supplements, what really is important is the actual amount of vitamins present there.
Some natural ones have additional ingredients which lessen its intended effect while there are synthetic ones that are overstuffed with a lot of vitamins which in effect lessens their effectiveness.
I’m sure you guys knows that synthetic vitamins has some side effects.
