What is more useful: natural products or synthetic multivitamins?
Jul 04, 2018
How often do we purchase multivitamin complexes in pharmacies to support our own organism?How useful is modern natural food, which we buy in shops and markets?These questions will have many answers, and, different!But it is worth to get acquainted with opinion of the Nobel Prize winner in chemistry Michael Levitte , whose scientific developments contribute to an effective study of the processes occurring in living organisms.
Michael Levitt gave a fairly large interview about the benefits of vitamin complexes sold in pharmacies, and the benefits of natural products from stores.All his speech can be arranged in several main theses.
How useful are vitamins from pharmacies
Vitamin A, B or C is a chemical substance that can not be artificial or natural.It will be right to consider these vitamins as molecules and atoms, and, independently, where they are contained - in the means obtained in the laboratory, or in products.
Theoretically, it can be assumed that vitamins obtained in the laboratory can be more "contaminated" with various impurities - this is necessary for any chemical process.But in this case, you can say that in the vitamins from the pharmacy will not be present "utility", which is in the products.In order not to enter into long disputes, it is necessary to understand that vitamins created in pharmacological enterprises and contained in products do not differ in any way.
Important! There is no research that would confirm the theory that the human body somehow perceives the vitamins from the pharmacy or those contained in the products in different ways.
Do I need to take vitamins from the drugstores
Many people in multivitamin complexes from pharmacies absorb, as if it's ordinary food - there's no need for it.Yes, vitamins from the laboratory do not differ from vitamins in foods, but you need to understand - in multivitamin complexes may contain too much concentration of biologically active substances.And such "shock" doses of vitamins on the body can cause serious harm to health.Well, except for this, it is unlikely that any of the people before taking vitamins from the pharmacy visits the doctor, undergoes a full examination and finds out which vitamins should be taken.By the way, most often "to get" vitamins and do not!
Michael Levitt stressed that he personally( the Nobel Prize winner in chemistry!) Does not take any vitamins from pharmacies and argues that this decision is very simple. The fact is that none of the vitamin complexes undergo any research with respect to efficiency, "working capacity". Yes, drugs are being tested, but they are very expensive, and no one will voluntarily perform such procedures for vitamins, and in most countries of the world, multivitamin complex efficacy studies are not legally binding.Michael Levitt simply does not see the point in using such vitamins from the pharmacy.
Harmful natural products
Most often people buy food, check them for "naturalness", they look for preservatives and colorants in the list of ingredients. But Michael Levitt argues that you need to really be afraid of only three "enemies":
- Salt - its excess in the human body leads to heart disease, disorders in the work of the vascular system, provokes an increase in blood pressure;
- sugar - in large numbers it is the cause of the development and progression of various inflammatory diseases and diabetes mellitus;
- fat - negatively affects the condition of blood vessels( however, not all fats are harmful, more in the article "TOP-10 useful fatty foods").
