Wholefood Supplements

Lenka Pagan

What are wholefood supplements?

Wholefood supplements include a wide variety of products. Almost all health food shops and many supermarkets stock them on their shelves. In general, wholefood supplements are derived from byproducts of foods that provide health benefits.

Wholefood supplements can be high in certain nutrients, contain active ingredients that aid digestive or metabolic processes or provide a combination of nutrients and active ingredients.

It is important to point out that some unscrupulous manufacturers make false promises. It is therefore vital to be an informed consumer. Wholefood supplements come in many shapes and forms – tablets, capsules, powders, liquids, granules and more.

How do we get all the nutrients our bodies need?

By eating a well-balanced, varied diet that contains lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, leafy greens, whole grains, nuts and pulses…ideally all organically grown without use of pesticides, fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, antibiotics and growth hormones.

In general, science demonstrated that natural, whole foods are the most nutritious and therefore the safest to eat.


It has become common knowledge that the best foods for a person to consume are the ones in their most natural state. Processed foods, that have been refined are nowhere near what they started out as.

The same goes for synthetic vitamins. Synthetic vitamins are man-made and bonded together with things that are not good for you.

You may think that you are taking a simple vitamin C supplement. However, most vitamin companies, as part of a cost cutting measure, mix this synthetic vitamin C with vitamins that are foreign to the human body and your body will expel as much of it as possible.

Processed food companies do the same which is why most of the nutritional value from food is stripped once it has been processed.

With that being the circumstance, it is questionable how much of the vitamin C is even entering your system and how much money you are wasting using synthetics.

Synthetic nutrients do not include “whole food supplements,” which are made from concentrated, dehydrated whole foods. Unfortunately, THE MAJORITY of supplements available on the market today are MADE ARTIFICIALLY. These include vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids, among others.

Another key factor to consider when weighing the option between whole-food versus synthetic vitamins is how well they work when only taken in parts. Most synthetic supplements cut out all of the non-leading roles.

When you eat a naturally grown tomato, straight from the vine, you are getting EVERY NUTRIENT that tomato has to offer. Because that tomato is in its natural state it has everything in it your body needs to properly break down and absorb every vitamin and mineral that tomato has in it.

What are we missing?

The things we are missing out on by relying on supplements are the 15+ other vitamins and minerals that are in the tomato that we won’t find in synthetic vitamins.

Whole-food vitamins take and include those extra vitamins and minerals that our bodies need. This ensures that we are getting the proper amount of each vitamin, as well as making sure everything is there so our bodies can absorb as much as possible.

There are about 75% of adults who take some form of supplements to manage or prevent health issues.

You’ve heard that saying “You are what you eat,” but the truth is you are what you absorb!
