Natural health products may be more effective at being absorbed into the body. Synthetic products may have extra ingredients that are not necessarily healthy. Many synthetic products contain dyes, preservatives, and a multitude of other ingredients that do not offer any health benefit. These same ingredients may also contribute to allergies. Natural products offer the possibility of avoiding the chemicals contributing to allergies and other illnesses.
Take note that there is very little supporting documentation in support for either type of product. However, it is logical to conclude that utilizing natural health products can only be a benefit.
Most natural health products come at a higher cost. This higher cost is no comparison to the possible health benefits in one's life. Allergies, for example, may be controlled using products that are all obtained from the highest quality sources and natural sources instead of synthetically created products.
Another finding which supports the concept that natural sources are better than synthetic is the research done on Vitamin E. It was found that naturally obtained Vitamin E was absorbed and retained better than synthetic Vitamin E. Researchers have long known that natural vitamin E, milligram for milligram, is about 36 percent more potent than the synthetic form of the vitamin. In fact, the "international unit," or IU, standard was developed to compensate for these differences. But two studies using different groups of people - not laboratory animals - have found that natural vitamin E is utilized twice as efficiently as the synthetic form. "Natural vitamin E may cost twice as much , but you get twice as much bang for your buck," Graham W. Burton, PhD, told The Nutrition Reporter. Burton, a researcher at the National Research Council of Canada, Ottawa, directed one of the studies.(Retrieved from The Nutrition Reporter March 25,2006)
As the future unfolds it should be seen that replacing the synthetic products in one's environment with natural products may benefit quality of life.
