(NaturalNews) Multivitamin supplements can be a great way to get the extra vitamins and minerals that are lacking in everyday foods. Besides the fact that most prepared food is highly processed, cooked, pasteurized or otherwise depleted of its natural nutrient content, the overused soil in which most of our commercial food is grown is lacking in essential nutrients. Thus, multivitamin supplements help to fill the void in achieving proper nutritional levels.

Unfortunately, not all multivitamins are derived from natural sources like plants, fruits and vegetables. Many are synthetically-derived, laboratory simulations of real vitamins, including some common ones like vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and vitamin E (dl-tocopheryl acetate). These are the same types of "vitamins" used to enrich many processed foods, and they simply do not assimilate well into the body because they are not truly natural.

Whenever a vitamin is listed under "Supplement Facts" with its technical name, it is usually an isolated, synthetic vitamin unless otherwise specified. While not necessarily harmful in every case, these vitamin forms have the potential to be harmful at high levels and do not perform as well as those that are truly genuine.

Real vitamins are the living ones derived from whole foods and that are maintained in their natural states. These contain the necessary cofactors and enzymes which help the body to process and use them, and they provide the most benefit to the body.

There are several companies that produce high-quality, whole food multivitamin supplements that deserve mention. Natural News has no financial stake in any of these brands and I was not paid to endorse them. They are highlighted merely for our readers' benefit because they are among the best in their class.

Garden of Life Living Multi
When it comes to producing high quality superfoods and supplements, Garden of Life is the cream of the crop. Its diverse array of nutritional products is impressive, including its line of multivitamins called 'Living Multi'.

Available in a men's, women's and 'Optimal' formula, Garden of Life's Living Multi contains an impressive array of superfood ingredients. Over 80 different fruits, vegetables, sea vegetables, mushrooms, herbs, spices and extracts are included, many of which are organic.

Probiotic microorganisms and enzymes are used in Living Multi blends to make the whole food vitamins easier to assimilate, providing the body with maximum absorption. All in all, Living Multi is a highly superior whole food supplement that is reasonably priced and readily available at many vitamin and health food stores.

New Chapter Organics Whole Food Multivitamins
New Chapter is a highly-respected, high-quality whole supplemental food company. All of their products are superior and you really cannot go wrong with any of them. As far as multivitamins go, New Chapter's men's and women's multivitamins are among the best available.

New Chapter's multivitamins come on three varieties: 'Every Man', 'Every Woman' and 'Perfect Prenatal'. Each one is uniquely cultured to deliver bio-transformed vitamins and minerals in their optimal form. Each multivitamin contains an array of certified organic foods and herbs that are specially designed for men, women and pregnant women. And because they are whole foods, they can be taken on an empty stomach.

The vitamins listed under "Supplement Facts" are specified as to their source, none of which are derived synthetically and all of which come from whole foods. New Chapter's vitamin blends are superb, earning them a worthy mention in this category.

MegaFood One Daily Multivitamins
MegaFood creates premium artisan whole food supplements in small batches at its New Hampshire facility. The neat thing about this company is that it sources all of its whole food ingredients from local farm partners. All the food ingredients are processed using a unique method that does not apply any heat to them, preserving all of their delicate enzymes and phytonutrients. Each ingredient is tested to make sure it is free of pesticides, herbicides, gluten, soy and dairy as well.

MegaFood produces six different customized multivitamins that contain a diverse array of superfoods, fruits, vegetables, roots, herbs and enzymes. The blends also feature a unique, non-candida yeast called S. cerevisiae that is said to be one of the most nutrient-rich foods found in nature.

The MegaFood company is impressive both for its products and ethic. It may be lesser-known than the others in this category, but the company deserves mention because its vitamins are exceptional.
