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 tarpetroleum 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 tarpetroleum, 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.
Dr. Royal Lee & Dr. Weston Price collaborated for many years. (http://www.westonaprice.org/nutrition-greats/601-royal-lee.html)
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.)
