Did you know that most vitamin companies copy the actual vitamin molecule in a laboratory, in an attempt to provide vitamins for your body? This is not the same as vitamins that come from whole food.

Did you know that most vitamin companies copy the actual vitamin molecule in a laboratory, in an attempt to provide vitamins for your body? This is not the same as vitamins that come from whole food.

What is a Synthetic Vitamin?

Until recently 99.9% of vitamins sold in stores and online have been synthetic man made vitamins produced in a laboratory to try and match the molecular structure of naturally occurring vitamins normally found in food. Many of these raw material synthetic vitamins are made by large pharmaceutical companies or companies based outside of the US.

What is an “Isolate” Vitamin?

More recently some man made vitamins have been “isolated” using natural sources, this is a much better brand than purely synthetic made from petroleum or similar sources, but questionable whether they should be called "whole food".
What is a “Food State Fermented” Vitamin?

Some vitamins have been sold as "Food State" sometimes also referred to as "Whole Food Vitamins" by the manufacturers. These are made by feeding a synthetic vitamin (see above about synthetic vitamins) to a yeast type brew. This is then fermented with the yeast to convert them to "Food State". The idea is for the yeast to convert the synthetic vitamin to a more digestible state, similar to food. The yeast is harvested, dried and then packed. The fermented option may be better than the pure synthetic option above, but we do believe it does not warrant the label "Whole Food".
What is a 100% “Whole Food” Vitamin?

When we refer to PhytoVitamins natural vitamins and minerals as 100% "Whole Food" derived through a proprietary process from natural sources; we mean nothing is man made or artificial. Our nutrition DOES NOT come from a laboratory; it comes directly from nature. That is the dramatic difference.

The PhytoVitamins USDA certified organic vitamins range, only contains whole food natural vitamins that are made with 100% whole organic foods that are additive free, synthetic vitamin free, vegetarian and vegan. For more than 15 years PhytoVitamins has been educating consumers about the benefits of true whole food vitamins.

To our knowledge we are one of only two companies that have been talking about synthetic free, fermented free whole food vitamins for this length of time. The difference between PhytoVitamins and the only other true whole food vitamin that has been around for longer than 10 years, is that PhytoVitamins is 100% vegan and free from spleen, liver, bone, glands and similar animal parts.
Why do we take the approach of sourcing vitamins and minerals from plants, fruits and vegetables? Because we believe that human health is best served by nature’s pharmacy of natural nutrition. The PhytoVitamins Brand is a step forward for pure natural whole food nutrition.
