What are Vitamin supplements made from?
-Wednesday, June 13, 2012
Most vitamins in supplements are petroleum extracts, coal tar derivatives, chemically processed sugar and sometimes industrial fish oils, with chemicals like formaldehyde used to process them. Synthetic vitamins were originally developed because they cost less. Most synthetic supplements call their products 'vegetarian', not because they are from plants, but because they are not from animals. Foodstate supplements are made with food such as acerola cherries, alfalfa, carrots, corn, grapefruit, lemons, limes, nutritional yeast, oranges, rice bran, soy beans, and tangerines.
