The truth about vitamins

How have synthetic chemicals become vital nutrients?

After a long medical treatment with various synthetic drugs, it dawns on many doctors to prescribe a vitamin complex so the patient’s organism can recuperate after an illness. You can simply buy these vitamins in a pharmacy, you will take them in the prescribed doses and ... you should again be as healthy as before. If the prescribed medicines do not restore your health, then you will need a doctor to change the therapy and treat you again with chemicals from the vademecum of various pharmaceutical companies.

Unfortunately, those to whom this does not help will have to spend the rest of their lives popping in meds, going from one doctor to another to undergo various tests and check ups trying new and new medicines, while many will begin to take vitamin pills without any supervision. The family and relatives of those who leave this world after all these allopathic treatments will say that they suffered from all sorts of maladies and that the Lord has decided to put them of their misery. After all, today it has become common to go to the doctor and take synthetic drugs. Let us also mention that the doctors tend to advise their patients when taking vitamins not to overdo it because that can lead to hypervitaminosis, and many doctors will say that they have had a similar case during their career.

Unfortunately, when we talk about these vital nutrients, some information on them has been simply removed from the history of medicine only to be forever "buried" far from the eyes of professionals and university students of medicine. This is what happened to many studies and tests done on vitamins until 1960s. One of the pioneers seriously engaged in this matter was an American dentist, Royal Lee, who first asked himself why tooth decay occurs in humans, especially in children who are generally more susceptible to illnesses. His work was not crowned by any reward for his work and hardly anyone in the world has heard of him, however, he was persecuted and prosecuted by the US Courts and the US Federal Food and Drug Administration Agency, FDA, which even went so far as to have the court order him to destroy all of his research on vitamins. He had to destroy his lifelong work, the 20-year long research on vitamins.

His claims that almost all illnesses occur due to malnutrition and that certain vitamins and minerals can treat many diseases, were declared to be quack work, while the fact that he was a dentist with almost no practice always emphasized. The truth is that Royal Lee was very meticulous in everything he did; he was thinking very broadly, wanting to delve into the fundaments of things. He was born in 1885 in Wisconsin, and died in 1967. He published many papers that today hardly anyone knows of. Unfortunately, Royal Lee was not only ahead of his time but had already had a powerful opponent –the corrupt American public administration that worked (and still works) under the patronage of the powerful food and chemical industrial complex, which not only produces synthetic drugs, synthetic "vitamins”, synthetic foods, synthetic beverages, but after the Second World War took over the control of the medical education and publishing research activity.

Therefore, today, both in the US and Europe medical studies pay more attention to the treatment of patients using synthetic drugs, while the human body is studied and analyzing by observing only dead organs and tissues (anatomy and histology) without distinguishing between real and synthetic vitamins. However, ascorbic acid is not vitamin C nor is tokopherol vitamin E, nor retinol vitamin A.


In layman's terms the activity of vitamins can be described as a well-cooked and delicious chicken soup. In order to be tasty, the soup must be prepared so that all the ingredients are cooked for a certain period of time. Some of the ingredients (for example, chicken meat or parsnip) cannot be eaten unless they undergo thermal processing, whereas a carrot, for example, takes on a whole different taste or nutritional value or actually loses it during cooking.
Parsley and onions can be eaten raw, but are not very palatable in large quantities. Then there are condiments that add to the final taste of the cooked soup whose flavor is completely different from the taste of each individual ingredient. But the real effect is achieved when they are all mixed and you get the soup you can eat with gusto. Something similar happens with vitamins; in fact, a vitamin is not a single isolated molecular compound or substance, not even a complex compound or substance, but a process in which certain ingredients of the vitamin complex are released in mutual electro-biochemical interaction at a certain temperature (in the human body they are "cooked" at 37 degrees Celsius) so they can be transported to each cell and so each cell can receive nutrients that contain electrons. This process takes place both in plants and in animals, with only the degree of heat treatment being different.

Thus, vitamins are just active biological complexes, their activity depending on the environment in which they enter into an electro-biochemical interaction– that is on the environment in which biochemical reactions are triggered. This vitamin activity occurs only when all conditions are met and when all necessary factors exist. It is only then that they work in synergy. Royal Lee noted that vitamin A is: "... a working process involving the reaction of nutrients, enzymes, antioxidants and coenzyme and trace minerals activators."

Vitamins are a living complex form that is active or can be activated under certain conditions, their main characteristic being that not a single, isolated component can be termed vitamin. Such isolated components cannot function as vitamins, as there is no vital (vitamin) process. For the cell to take nutrients from a vitamin complex, which still contains trace minerals, the complex has to be activated and has to become alive. However, when a cell because of the similarity of molecule forms takes in the synthetically produced component of vitamins, it is but a simulation of the active process which therefore cannot constitute a functional nutrient, and this can even lead to intoxication. This is what synthetic vitamins really are - chemical copies of natural vitamin complexes, isolated from the complex, and then camouflaged in the molecules of the same shape which are thus introduced into the process of cell feeding. But they are not food, rather they work as poison to cells. So, if you add noodles from refined flour into the soup, you'll also be throwing in dead, flawed molecules that will eventually accumulate in the body because cells will register them as garbage. Refined flour and refined sugar have no electron field (as dr Budvig discovered) and their molecules are dead.


Functional vitamins in the organism are only those complexes that are alive. They are man’s natural food in the "Garden of Eden", they are the fruit of fruit or vegetables directly picked from the branches and uprooted from the soil (through which electrons still flow). Unfortunately, the capitalist philosophy of making profit turned food production into a business that is strictly profit-oriented. Constant and merciless plowing and treating of depleted soil, together with using concentrates to feed cattle and pultry has completely obliterated the natural vitamin-mineral complex from natural food. Creating artificial - synthetic fertilizers has dealt the final blow to humanity, which is beginning to seriously face malnutrition. Thus, the industry produces huge amounts of delicious food which lacks vital nutrients.

Royal Lee was the first to understand the disastrous consequences of this business after he read the book by Dr. Harvey V. Wiley (Harvey W. Wiley), former director of the US Bureau of Chemistry. Wiley was the Bureau’s last director until 1912, when he was demoted and the bureau was abolished. The reason for this was that this institution, headed by Wiley, vehemently opposed the placing of food and drinks with dangerous ingredients on the market. He took the following view: "No food product in our country will have traces of benzoic acid, sulfuric acid or sulfate and not a trace of alum or saccharine, except for medical purposes, neither soft drinks should contain caffeine or teobromine (found in cocoa beans). No bleached flour should be permitted to be in stores. Our food and drugs must be completely devoid of any form of counterfeiting and false labeling. Manufacturers of food and special food conglomerates should devote all their energy to improving public health and promoting happiness in every home by producing whole wheat flour, whole grains, non-comminuted grain flour and semolina."

By taking this stand he actually started a legal battle against the Coca-Cola (we shall see laterwhy). Therefore, instead of the Bureau of Chemistry, corrupt state leaders passed a law which established the FDA Agency, appointing a more suitable man to the position of director, Doctor Elmer Nelson, who had a much more flexible nutrition philosophy, expressed in his statement: "It is wholly unscientific to state that a well-fed body is more able to resist disease than a less well-fed body." My opinion is that there are not enough experiments to prove that the lack of certain nutrients in a diet makes the body more susceptible to illness. " (Elmer Nelson MD, Washington Post). Since then, the FDA has without fail acted in the interest of profit of private pharmaceutical and food industries.


The entire complex, which functions as vitamin A (as known so far) includes the following molecules: retinol, retinoids, retinal carotenoids, carotene, fatty acids, vitamin C, vitamin B, vitamin D, enzymes, minerals. (Vitamins and Minerals, Somer 1992). It is obvious that in this vitamin there are whole complexes of other vitamins. Therefore, it is no wonder that doctor Royal Lee described vitamins as "wheels within wheels." And they really do function like that. When a wheel is removed from the other whee, then it is not that same wheel, but a completely different one.

Until 1924 the entire complex of vitamins from food was preserved by taking the whole plant rich in vitamins, followed by the process of removing water from the fiber in a cold vacuum process without adding any chemicals, and finally came the packaging process which maintained the stability of the complex. In this way, all the "wheels" were wrapped in each other and vitamin-mineral complex remained intact. But in 1931 the powerful pharmaceutical giant La Roche discovered a way to synthesize a component of vitamin A (which was actually discovered in 1919). Thus, taking the retinoic acid, they began to chemically synthesize them naming them vitamin A.

Synthetic vitamin A is usually composed of retinal, retinol or retinoic acid. Thus synthesized and purified it is then labeled vitamin A to be sold in shops worldwide. Naturally, when taken in higher doses this vitamin becomes toxic, toxicity of vitamin A being known as A hypervitaminos, as the result of "purified" vitamin intake, but this never occurs if the whole natural complex is consumed. That is why today in the medical literature we can read the following: "The consequences of intoxication with vitamin A include tumor growth, joint disorders, osteoporosis, dry eye, mouth and skin, enlargement of the liver and spleen, birth defects, low immunity," as Judith de Cava claims in her book. The main culprit, naturally, is synthetic vitamin A.


Isolated from the whole, these components cannot perform their vital function, yet thus synthetically molded they are inserted in the process of binding with other vitamin cofactors already present in the body thus actually being extracted from the organism. These synthetic components therefore lead to demineralization of the whole organism. We have already written about how acid molecules before being excreted through kidneys must be neutralized by being bound to molecules of alkaline minerals. For this process, these acidic molecules commonly take calcium from the bones. So when some misguided doctors state that as many as half a million women in Serbia suffer from osteoporosis, they do not see that the reason lies in excessive intake of various medications which break down to heavy acids thus demineralizing the body. Still sticking to their beliefs (the pharmaceutical vademecum being their Bible) they continue to "treat" these patients prescribing even stronger chemical substances which these patients seem hard to tolerate, as these medicines produce kidney stones. Unfortunately, such cases only prove that today’s allopathic medicine has nothing to do with life but is only interested in administering medicine. Most educated doctors do not know of medicine without synthewtic drugs.

In the natural biological process that starts the vitamin A complex, beta carotene acts as its precursor – the primary wheel. However, the synthesized version of beta carotene is usually "stabilized" in refined oils. In this trans-fatty acidic form, beta-carotene becomes easily oxidized so pure beta carotene can no longer be a nutrient, this altered form cannot be converted into vitamin A.

Almost all synthetic beta-carotene is produced by the Swiss Group Hoffman - La Roche, which is the main supplier of this vitamin which is then bought and packaged by companies into their own commercial vitamin formulas. It is much better if this synthetic form is not activated than to be activated (as part of a vital process), because then it acts as a toxin.
However, this method of producing vitamins can be patented and chemically synthesized in large quantities making it very profitable. And that is how almost all "vitamins" that now we buy at pharmacies and are prescribed as complementary therapy by poorly educated doctors come to be.


The story with ascorbic acid is similar, which the pharmaceutical business has labeled vitamin C. But, ascorbic acid is not vitamin C, but only one metabolite that is the byproduct of the active process (life) of vitamin C.

Ascorbic acid is only the "antioxidant layer," a component of vitamin C. Ascorbic acid is just one isolated distillate of vitamin C metabolized in natural conditions in the liver. It protects the functional parts of the whole vitamin complex from rapid oxidation or rapid degradation. Complete vitamin C must contain, in addition to ascorbic acid, rutin, bioflavonoids, Factor C, Factor I, Factor P, Tyrosinase, ascorbinogen and other components such as trace minerals. If any of these components is missing, the vital biological process called - vitamin C will not be formed.

But the pharmaceutical industry managed to isolate ascorbic acid calling it vitamin C. Then they analyzed the molecule and tried to find some of the same or similar form that would be the result of a chemical process which would produce these molecules in large quantities and they succeeded in this.


Ascorbic acid is now made in a patented process that involves corn starch and volatile acidity. Over 90 percent of ascorbic acid in the US is produced in Nutley plants, New Jersey, which are also owned by Hoffman-La Roche, one of the largest producers of raw materials for pharmaceuticals.
The largest number of companies buy ascorbic acid in bulk from them and this is followed by the distribution process. Each trademark has its own label, their own arguments, their formulations, each claiming to have better vitamin C although all these formulas come from the same supplier and none of them is not vitamin C. In the United States alone there are about 110 companies that sell vitamins, the United States alone spend $ 9 billion annually on buying synthetic vitamins. Less than five companies use the entire complex involved in the creation of vitamin C, because this is more expensive as the entire complex is harder to preserve.


When it comes to natural vitamins, hypervitminosis never happens. The reason is that natural vitamin complex in fruits and vegetables is present in very small quantities, so even by filling the stomach their intake can never be exceeded. The stomach can take only a certain quantity of nutrients so that the content of vitamins in it is measured in milligrams. But that is exactly how they achieve their full effect. Therefore, doctor Royal Lee claimed that scurvy (vitamin C deficiency) can be eliminated with only 20 milligrams of vitamin C, that is by consuming only one tomato.

But one tomato in the body produces less than 20 milligrams of metabolites called ascorbic acid which gave rise to the common belief that a much larger dose of "vitamin C" should be taken.

"The entire vitamin C complex is found in tomatoes, onion and citrus fruits and is able to quickly cure scurvy. But, synthetic vitamin C cannot," as it was published in 1842 in the medical journal “Lancet”.

Nobel laureate Dr. Albert Szent-Györgyi who officially discovered vitamin C in 1937, also discovered that ascorbic acid alone cannot cure scurvy. Thus, he continued his research on vitamin C discovering the existence of rutin in it.

This led to the use of ascorbate, ascorbic acid salts, which researchers such as Linus Pauling and Irwin Stone found that in megadoses have a remarkable therapeutic effect for some illnesses. Can we conclude that the double Nobel laureate Linus Pauling and his team of scientists was awarded the money and the Nobel Prize precisely for this type of research – practically conducting research into the functioning only of ascorbic acid and ascorbate. He too found that this isolated metabolite has a very beneficial effect on many cardiovascular diseases, provided it is administered in megadoses.

But the results of such research did not appeal to pharmaceutical industry because even synthesized "vitamin C" cannot be bring as much money as some far more expensive synthetic "drugs", especially cardiovascular surgery and organ transplants.

Therefore, synthetic vitamins are very powerful, but only as synthetic drugs (medicines), and not as vitamins. A small amount of vitamin ingredients when they are complete as the "wheels in the wheels," can start an active biological process which, unless the process starts, irrespective of how much milligrams or grams of ascorbic acid or ascorbate has been taken, vitamins have no effect.

But administering megadoses of synthesized vitamins, especially sodium ascorbate, as demonstrated by Irvin Stone, can have a very strong effect on eliminating certain toxic narcotic molecules. The reason for this is that the molecules of ascorbate are more readily accepted by certain brain receptors. In the treatment of drug addiction there seems to be a battle of two toxins, one of which causes addiction (heroin, opium, methadone), and the other does not. Long-term diarrhea after treatment with sodium ascorbate clearly proves its toxicity.
SYNTHETIC BEFORE THENATURAL - the greatest tragedy of human civilization.
