Hi Everyone, down below are descriptions of vitamins and their benefits. Photo above is Ensure's product in which one needs to decide if that is what they want to put into their bodies and or is it real nutrition. Moreover, much research has been done on the difference between synthetic and natural vitamins. Our whole approach by using real food extracts is to maintain natural nutrition in its natural habitat. Personally one needs to study the issue for themselves. Yes, some benefits are gained by taking unnatural or synthetic vitamin and minerals.

Below is an electron photo of Natural Vitamin C. Next is a photo of ascorbic acid. What do you believe is real or synthetic.

Vitamin Myth ExposedBy: Brian Clement, Ph.D., N.M.D.

* Vitamin A acts as an antioxidant, helping to protect the cells and is necessary for new cell growth. It guards against heart disease and stroke, and lowers cholesterol levels. This important vitamin also slows the aging process. Protein cannot be utilized by the body without vitamin A. Vitamin A is a well-known wrinkle eliminator , as well as skin disorders, such as acne.

* The B vitamins help maintain the health of nerves, skin, eyes, hair, liver, and mouth, and the repair of RNA and DNA which also maintains healthy muscle tone in the gastrointestinal tract. Alzheimer's disease whose problems were later found to to be due to a deficiency of vitamin B12; also causes anemia and underweight, and is also needed to make DNA. B complex are required for normal brain function, cognitive activity, and aid in energy production. They are a neurotransmitter involved in learning and memory functions which also protect the myelin sheath, which insulates nerves. Inositol has a calming effect and a deficiency may lead to mood swings and irritability.

* Vitamin C produces a positive immunologic response to help fight bacteria and viruses. Its support of the adrenal function and role in the production of the adrenal hormones epinephrine and norepinephrine can help the body handle infections and stress of all kinds. Vitamin C is used to treat a wide range of viral, bacterial, and fungal infections and inflammatory problems of all kinds, because of this adrenal-augmenting response, as well as thyroid support by stimulating production of thyroxin (T4) hormone.

Case Study—In the 1940s Dr. Fred Klenner routinely cured polio and other viral diseases with intravenous vitamin C. When a King Country dairy farmer came down with a serious case of swine flu and leukemia, intensive care specialists said there was no hope. They were set to pull him off of life support, but his family refused to give up. Through high dose intravenous (IV) vitamin C. , Not only did the vitamin C cure Allan's swine flu infection, but after spending nine weeks in an induced coma, he walked out of physical rehab after 13 days as opposed to the predicted three months. Even more astounding, today, just over a year later, he also has no further signs of leukemia.

* Vitamin D includes a reduction in the risk of colon polyps, prostate, and breast cancer with less coronary artery disease, with a decreased chance of developing type 1 diabetes. D increases muscle strength and coordination along with higher bone strength which is the catalyst to absorb Calcium in the intestines. Scientific research shows that all cells and tissues in your body have vitamin D receptors -- and further concludes that every cell and tissue needs vitamin D for its well-being.* Not only that, but vitamin D is responsible for the regulation of over 2,000 genes in your body!

* Vitamin E greatly helps reduce symptoms caused by impaired tissue oxygenation, decreased blood clotting and increased tissue oxygenation may help reduce symptoms of heart and vascular limitations, such as angina pectoris, arterial spasm, and intermittent claudicating (leg pain with walking because of the insufficiency of blood and oxygen). Vitamin E's role in preventing premature aging and promoting longevity, aging, tissue degeneration, and skin changes mainly are brought about by the damage that free radicals cause to cells unprotected by antioxidant nutrients in the body. Vitamins A and E together can help reduce cholesterol and general fat accumulations
