Yes, this may sound somewhat ironic. After all, the reason most of us bother with taking multivitamin supplements to begin with is that they are supposedly able to guard against the onset of serious diseases, and otherwise protect our health over the long-term, by providing us the nutrients which we know we are missing in our American diets. Unfortunately, scientific evidence relating to the long-term effects of multivitamin supplements is beginning to stack up, and the consensus is clear: multivitamins don’t prevent disease. In fact, they might actually help cause it. Our advice would be to consider seaweed nutrition like Super Sea Veg®
One 2008 study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, sought to determine the long-term effects of daily multivitamin use on women. The study found, contrary to expectations, that women who took a multivitamin were more likely than women who didn’t take a multivitamin to develop dense breast tissue, which is considered a precursor to breast cancer.
The problems with multivitamins are manifold. First of all, they contain lots of different kinds of inert powders and dyes, intended to help give them their characteristic shapes and appearances. This is good for marketing and profit margins, but bad for your body, because it means you’re forced to ingest a lot of “miscellaneous” binder and filler matter, that has no nutritional value and may be harmful in the long term. In fact, every major degenerative disease increased in the population taking these supplements over the past 70 years, and now over 65 different studies are confirming why this has happened.
The major problem with the average multivitamin supplement is that the nutrients it contains are entirely artificial. By this we mean, consisting of 95-100% synthetic, man-made compounds, with zero food value, and extremely acidic with a pH of approximately 2.0. These compounds are found in over 350 different brands of so-called vitamins, and 85% of these dead compounds are manufactured by 8 drug companies. It’s always better to get the majority of one’s nutrients from actual food, rather than from lab-refined chemicals. It’s little wonder that multivitamin supplements are causing problems for people who take them on a regular basis. They have almost no similarity to anything one would ingest in the normal course of life. The truth is that they are closer to plastic, than to organic nutrition. We are NOT missing these compounds in our diet AND our bodies CAN tell the difference, as the numerous studies have now proven.
Seaweed is an ideal replacement for any standard multivitamin. It’s rich in hundreds of different phyto-nutrients, including all 28 known vitamins, and over 72 trace and colloidal minerals. Seaweed is an excellent source of naturally occurring vitamins D and b12. It’s also one of the only plentiful vegetable sources of all-natural iodine.
“Super Sea Veg® is the only twelve different seaweeds that consists of a blend of twelve organic edible sea plants, chosen from over 10,000 species and harvested from pristine ocean waters around the world. Super Sea Veg® contains every element and nutrient known to man and MORE, in concentrated and balanced amounts, in 100% vegetable capsules, which by taking every day, will move your cells, blood and body toward superior biological health and homeostasis”
The Japanese population eats 7 grams of sea plants each day, and they have the healthiest and longest living population in the world today. If you’re taking a daily multivitamin, consider taking Super Sea Veg® daily, instead. With all the goodness of nutrient-rich seaweed, and no artificial additives whatsoever (event the capsule is 100% vegetable), it’s no wonder we’ve taken to calling it the UNvitamin®.
