Introduction

Picture this: You went to the drugstore to buy supplements. However, with the budget you have in hand, you are now stuck in a dilemma of which type of vitamins you should buy. Should you go with the synthetic or natural ones?


This article will discuss synthetic and natural vitamins to help you make better-informed decisions before buying. Although the answer might be clear for some, we want to expand on these two contenders and give you an insight into how they are made, along with some extra details. Without further adieu, continue to read on.

Synthetic Vs. Natural Vitamins: A Comparison

Choosing which vitamin is essential for you should always be a manageable experience. Whether it's synthetic or natural, let's take a look at how these two vitamin types differ from each other.

Getting To Know Synthetic Vitamins

First, let's start with Synthetic vitamins. This vitamin type undergoes rigorous chemical processes to extract and synthesize vitamin compounds before becoming consumable supplements.

💡 Did you know

That synthetic vitamins go through processing in industrial laboratories? They've created these vitamins to mimic how our bodies naturally absorb nutrients. However, here's the catch: these vitamins often feel hollow because they lack the minerals, enzymes, and nutrients that naturally occur in vitamins.

You can get them at an incredibly affordable price, considering how they're made. However, it's important to be aware of potential issues that you definitely want to avoid. Some examples include:

Vitamin Imbalance Can Lead to Deficiencies

Both vitamins and minerals are like best friends that go well together. When bonded, they can adequately distribute their nutrients throughout our bodies in synergy. However, it's not the same when you take synthetic vitamins because they contain no minerals, thus creating an imbalance of distribution that can lead to micronutrient deficiency.

Vitamin Imbalance

No Approval From the FDA

The FDA has limited resources to check dietary supplements. That means companies making synthetic vitamins can bypass these checks and make their products available for everyone without the FDA's approval. It's a clear recipe for disaster and can pose a huge health risk to the public.

Not Approved by FDA

They Are Harder To Absorb

Since synthetic vitamins are like a "chemical carbon copy" of natural vitamins, our bodies will have difficulty absorbing them. Sure, they might taste and feel the same as their natural counterparts, but the effects would differ. You might wonder why these types of vitamins are less effective and why they take multiple doses before you feel them kick in.

Now, let's get into natural vitamins. If you follow a healthy diet plan, you can already get natural vitamins from your nutrient-packed foods. Be it protein-rich products, fruits, or vegetables.


But did you know that we can also transform natural vitamins into convenient supplements? We take the goodness of vitamins found in fruits, vegetables, and other natural sources and concentrate and condense them into easy-to-take forms. Just from this incredible process alone, you can already see that natural vitamins are a massive leap forward compared to synthetic alternatives.


Natural vitamins are the healthier option with all the essential nutrients your body needs. It has a lot of health benefits, too, including:

Better Nutrient Absorption

Research has shown that our bodies can absorb natural vitamins better than synthetic ones. And this is thanks to the bioavailable ingredients that natural vitamins contain. Our bodies can easily absorb and utilize this ingredient because it is compatible with our metabolic process, something that synthetic vitamins cannot achieve.

Body Absorption

Risk-Free

Natural vitamins earn their name because they come from plant-based ingredients like vegetables and fruits. They do not contain any harmful chemicals that are present in synthetic vitamins, so you are less likely to feel some side effects when taking them. 

Risk Free

Restores Your Body's Nutrients Effectively

Our bodies are super complex and need nutrients to function well on a daily basis. Thanks to natural vitamins, getting that much-needed nutrients is now made easy and accessible. Unlike synthetic vitamins, natural vitamins contain minerals that work in synergy that the body can absorb effectively, thus preventing the risk of micronutrient deficiency.
