Food Supplements:
If You want Optimum Nutrition You Need to Read This

Food supplements come in many shapes and sizes, and they promise to fill every gap imaginable in your body. But how safe are your food supplements?

Most supplements result from an artificial process of mixing inactive ingredients with biotin.

Biotin is a B-vitamin, better known as vitamin B7. It helps our bodies to produce energy.

On average, we need small quantities of biotin each day.

The recommended daily allowance (RDA) for biotin is 400 micrograms: just enough to fit on a pinhead.

But did you know typical food supplements often weigh over 300 milligramme? That's over 700 times than the of biotin itself!

Think about that for a moment...

When using a food supplement for its vitamin B7 (or biotin) content, you consume 700 times as much added ingredients as the vitamin B7 itself. So, you consume ingredients for which no deficiencies exist. Does that make any sense to you?

food supplements does that make sense

Yes, you should feel troubled, because mixing biotin with inactive ingredients to produce food supplements has several disadvantages.


The only reason for using inactive ingredients is to bind, fill, and lubricate capsules and tablets. Apart from that, they have no value.

Often, food supplements get promoted as "all-natural health supplements", and nothing could be further from the truth. They are dangerous for you and your family.


During digestion, vitamins and minerals attach to protein complexes in your digestive tract.

Attaching to protein complexes enhances their absorption and ensures that they do not end up isolated in the bloodstream. 

Protein complexes in the blood stream do not (normally) get excreted by the kidneys. Because they do not get excreted, they stay in the body for longer.

But food supplements prevent protein complexes from forming because of their inactive ingredients.

Now vitamins and other nutrients cannot attach to protein complexes, which leads to less efficient absorption of vitamins and minerals.

Without proper absorption, they enter the blood stream as isolated, free-floating nutrients and get excreted (by the kidneys).

A food supplement has only biotin and inactive ingredients. A biotin-rich food has biotin and other essential nutrients your body needs to work. 

The conclusion is that common food supplements causes a scarcity of important nutrients.

When you take a supplement that provides biotin in an isolated form, you can compare it to oiling a single cog in a machine. If you don't oil the cogs too, the machine will come to a complete standstill.

Foreign particles, such as those found in food supplements, mobilises your immune system.

A single supplement may trigger a slight immune response. But twenty (or more) supplements per day causes dangerous levels of inactive material in your body.

More inactive ingredients in your body triggers a big immune response. It drains large amounts of nutrients... Counteracting the effect of taking food supplements in the first place!
