The Pharmaceutical Myth by Gerald Roliz
Many over-the-counter, online vitamins and practitioner sold supplements (ex. Costco’s Kirkland, Pure Encapsulations, Metagenics, Thorne, Pharmanex, Xymogen, etc.) contain high doses of synthetic vitamins, which are derived from coal tar, petroleum & GMO corn syrup.
1) Which drug company owns the Centrum synthetic vitamin line? Wyeth (just look on the back of the box at a local drug store)
2) Which drug company owns the One-A-Day & Flintstones Kids synthetic vitamin line? Bayer Healthcare (just look on the back of the box at a local drug store)
3) Which drug company owns the Nature’s Resource synthetic vitamin line? Otsuka Pharmaceuticals (One of my previous employers when I was a drug rep)
*GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson & Johnson, Alcon, Bausch & Lomb and Novartis also have a large presence in the synthetic vitamin markets. I used to be a market research consultant. If you want access to the market research studies, please let me know.
Synthetic Vitamins are made mostly by the same 5 pharmaceutical companies & rebranded differently downstream.
Synthetic Vitamins are artificial chemicals made in a factory from coal tar, petroleum, or GMO corn syrup. (Reilly coal tar company explicitly states they make synthetic Vitamin K1 & K2 from coal tar HERE)
Synthetic Vitamins lack essential co-factors which complete & balance the whole nutrient complex.
Synthetic Vitamins create nutritional deficiencies of missing co-factors & nutrients that have not yet be discovered by humans
Synthetic Vitamins in high doses have a pharmacological (not nutritional) effect on the body.

Minimizing the use of Synthetic vitamins may be a wise tradition. I’ve attached a study showing how synthetic Vitamin B1 is more like a neuterceutical rather than actual vitamin.
Standard Process whole food concentrates are essentially raw ”food” in a tablet; hence, they are energetically alive. In chinese, nourishing foods are known to have “Gu Qi” (穀氣); something that synthetic chemicals lack & actually drain the body’s (jing) reserves. Some scientists will claim that ascorbic acid made in a lab has the same molecular chemistry as that found in food. I have yet to hear a chemist explain the difference between a living being and a corpse (despite the cellular makeup being the same.)
