The popularity of organic foods has been increasing steadily over the past decade. More people realize that what you put into your body directly impacts your health and the quality of your life. There is much evidence showing that conventional non-organic choices contribute to the accumulation of toxins and raise the toxic load in the body which contributes to the likelihood of disease.
Some people complain that organic choices are more expensive. But, are they really? How about illness? Being sick means doctor visits, medications, medical procedures, time away from work, lower quality of life, not to mention the emotional impact being sick has on you and those around you. You can pay a bit higher prices for organic choices now or pay a much higher price for being ill later. In the big picture, organic choices are not expensive because they offer greater nutritional benefits minus the toxins which can lead to illness.
Ingredients in Supplements
The supplement industry has been slower to catch up to the healthier-ingredient trend. Most dietary supplements are made with synthetic elements, fillers, binders, and toxic ingredients. For instance, most vitamin C “ascorbic acid” found in supplements is synthetic or from GMOs. PLUS, most of the cheap magnesium and calcium supplements come from ground-up seashells useless to your body.
Some of the most prevalent dangerous ingredients are:
- Artificial Flavors and Colors: FD&C Blue #1, Blue #2, Green #3, Red #3, Red #40, Yellow #5, Yellow #6
- Unhealthy Ingredients: Hydrogenated and Vegetable Oils, Carrageenan, “Natural” (hexane-extracted) Soy Proteins, Yeast Extract, Maltodextrin, MSG
- Neurotoxins: Aluminum, Fluoride, Mercury
- Toxic Compounds: Lead, PCBs (Polychlorinated Biphenyls), Talc or Magnesium Silicate, Titanium Dioxide
Just like you should avoid toxic ingredients in your food in order to be healthy, you should avoid unnecessary toxins in your supplements. You should aim to consume organic supplements from whole food sources so you get all their benefits without increasing your toxic load.
