In contrast to man-made chemically based substances or complexes it is truly food and/or food-like concentrates that truly have healing powers. Chemicals—drugs or others—have never been shown to have tissue regeneration or organ healing capacities. The consumption, therefore, of chemical compounds, whether in the form of pharmaceutical agents or chemically produced supplements, can achieve for the body no good. In fact, in contrast to any real positive benefit they largely do the body harm. This is certainly true of numerous synthetically produced vitamin supplements, including the commonly available B vitamin formulations.
Yet, the pursuit of the intake of B vitamins is understandable. These vitamins are essential for life. The cells and organs of the body degenerate in their absence. They are necessary for the optimal function of all organ systems. The human body needs B vitamins, even on a daily basis. Yet, should they be derived from chemically produced supplements, GMO-tainted formulations, or real food and/or food concentrates?
It would be superior to get modest or even low doses from foods or their concentrates than to gain seemly high of excessive doses from chemically derived or laboratory produced sources. Moreover, in the early scientific studies on deficiency diseases it was primarily food-based B vitamins which were shown to systematically reverse deficiency symptoms.
Can coal-tar and/or benzene heal?
It is well established that drugs are produced from petrochemical derivatives as well as components of coal-tar. Yet, what about vitamin supplements? Surely, they would not be made from such noxious substances? Surely, when it comes to the manufacture of “our vitamins,” this would be more sacred.
This is not the case. The vitamins, too, are made from chemical substances, mainly coal-tar but also to a large degree, benzene and other gasoline-like substances.
Gasoline components, such as benzene, as a vitamin supplement base? Who could find this plausible? According to Robert Thiel, Ph.D., Naturopathic physician:
Most vitamins in supplements are petroleum extracts, coal tar derivatives, and chemically processed sugar. NOTE: he also adds that industrially processed and adulterated fish oil is the base substance for certain vitamin compounds. “…industrial chemicals, such as formaldehyde (are), used to process” the vitamins during manufacturing.
Therefore, rather than actual naturally occurring vitamins people are consuming, perhaps unwittingly nothing other than synthetic corruptions. To produce such aberrant molecules chemicals must be used, many of which are harsh as well as, more direly, carcinogenic. Let us, then, look at some of these corrupt ‘vitamins’ and comprehend of what they are made and, perhaps, how they are made:
In fact, the synthetic form of this vitamin, thiamine hydrochloride, can prove toxic. Derived from a substance known as Grew Diamine, a derivative of coal-tar it is according to Chiropractic physician R. Schierling “processed with several harsh chemicals including ammonia and formaldehyde (http://www.doctorschierling.com/blog/vitamin-b-or-coal-tar).” Even so, some thiamine may be derived from yeast and/or rice bran. However, this more natural derivative is rarely if ever found in the standard dietary supplements.
There is yet another means of production of this vitamin, which is through microbial synthesis. However, once again, there is a corruption, here, since the microbes used are GMO:
10. A recombinant DNA containing a DNA fragment which is derived from a microorganism belonging to the genus Escherichia and is bearing genetic information relating to the synthesis of thiamine monophosphate and/or thiamine pyrophosphate.
Escherichia stands for Esherichia coli, that is E. coli, a colonic bacteria.
Regarding this most crucial vitamin it may be produced from nutritional yeast; however, most of it is produced synthetically or semi-synthetically by Roche, BASF, and Hubei Guangji Pharmaceutical. This vitamin, at least, is not made from the carbon molecules of coal tar or petrol. Instead, it is produced through microbial synthesis. It has been long known that certain yeasts, as well as bacteria, produced vast amounts of the vitamin. The process, in general, is described as follows:
The filamentous fungus Ashbya gossypii (= Eremothecium gossypii) is employed in an industrial riboflavin producing process. Genetically, this filamentous fungus is closely related to S. cerevisiae and able to grow on vegetable oil as a carbon source. An optimized strain (that is a genetically engineered one) produces a large surplus of riboflavin that is secreted into the culture supernatant where it accumulates to extremely high concentrations and finally crystallizes. This biotechnological process produces thousands of tons of riboflavin per year and is more cost-effective than chemical processes for its synthesis. Other biotechnological processes utilize the gram-positive bacterium Bacillus subtilis for the production of riboflavin. Again, genetic engineering (such as the mutation of the ribE gene) was used to increase the productivity of the strain.
The production of vitamins through genetically corrupted strains is hardly safe. Such altered germs may produce dangerous toxins that contaminate the end-product, in this case, riboflavin crystals. A schematic of the processes involved in riboflavin production is as follows. Note that the chemical process, though described below, has been largely abandoned in favor of the fermentation one relying on genetically altered germs:
Notice that glucose is used as a substrate, likely derived from GMO-tainted corn.
Clearly, the schematic states the use of genetically corrupted bacteria for the biosynthetic process. The fermentation of matter through the use of such recombinant germs leads to the production of toxins of unknown severity and toxicity.
Just what is this biomass that is relied upon as fuel for the fermentation germs? Is it human or animal sewage? Why call it biomass? Why not identify it?
Can anyone image all the possibilities for toxicity and reactions: corn derivatives, toxic chemicals, formaldehyde, petrochemical derivatives, coal-tar, solvents, and GMOs? Too, how is it possible to efficiently digest coal-tar, benzene, GMO toxins, GMO corn matter, or formaldehyde, that is without causing great toxicity in the gut? What a contrast it is to consume such corrupted supplements versus those which are made from actual food.
One food-based B complex powder free of all synthetic or biosynthesis-based vitamins is on the market. Let us see what people are saying about this compared to synthetically produced pills. Here, it should be kept in mind that the following testimonials relate only to food source B vitamins. Note the contrast between these and the former intake of synthetic or semi-synthetic formulations:
I am allergic to any synthetic vitamins, so I add this (that is a whole food B complex powder made from high-grade rice bran, heat-killed torula yeast, roasted maca, and royal jelly) to my protein shakes to get my Vitamin B and notice it keeps me in a good mood and also the fiber from the roasted maca helps fill me up which is always difficult since I can’t have any fruit, gluten, soy, or anything high-carb.
I am able to digest this (whole food vitamin powder), where the B complex pills give me indigestion.
Surely, no one can adequately digest mere coal-tar or petroleum distillates, let alone GMOs derived from corn: or GMO microbial toxins. It is far worse than mere failure to digest and assimilate and/or digestive upset. It is organ and cellular toxicity that is at issue. As noted on the blog NewHealthGuide there are a number of well-published signs and symptoms of toxicity as a result of the consumption of B complex tablets. These signs and symptoms are as follows:
Changes in urine color
Redness of skin
The black stools, as well as the redness of the skin, are surely signs of coal-tar and/or petrochemical toxicity. Avoid the consumption of synthetically produce vitamins. These vitamins will add to the burden of toxicity within the human body.
H/t reader squodgy:
“Guess we’ve still not learnt to distrust BigPharma.
Chemical based ‘alternative’ vitamins with benzene and GMO inclusions don’t sound quite as healthy as organic plant based natural supplements.”
