Consider these facts before recommending vitamins to your patients, customers or choosing a brand for your shop.


Natural vs. Synthetic - is there a difference between natural and synthetic vitamins?  The FDA, Linus Pauling institute and many scientists will generally say no, The Entire Katoa agrees when you refer to only the molecule itself.  For example, a pure ascorbic acid molecule is by chemical definition the same no matter where it came from: an orange or a factory.  However, nature never supplies us with pure vitamin molecules!


Natural Form - in our natural foods (plants and animals) vitamins never exist in an isolated state (without attachments).  As with minerals, plants only contain vitamins bound to proteins.  Carbohydrates, essential fatty acids and bioflavonoids are also closely associated and/or attached, but most important are the proteins as only they transport vitamins in living systems.  So if you want to sell a natural supplement it is the form of the vitamin with which you should be concerned, not the source or the base.  And that form must be protein bound to e considered natural.


Free State Vitamins - Most vitamins on the market today, whether labeled natural or not, are in an un-natural free state.  Remember, natural source is not good enough; the form has to be natural.  If a natural source vitamin has everything removed until its a pure molecule, it may as well be synthetic.  This is why until now, no `natural line has been shown to be chemically different from `synthetic because there is no difference.  Blending a isolated state vitamin into a natural base does not change the vitamin itself.


Natural Form Vitamins The Entire Katoa Ltd Food State Nutrients supplies vitamins bound to proteins with close associations (or complexes) to carbohydrates, essential fatty acids and natural form bioflavonoids.
