quote:Originally posted by ArneI've been using Dr. Robert Willix's Next Generation multi-vitamins. I'm having trouble finding a source for them. In my searching, I've found several reports (using the same source, apparently) that Usana Essentials are the best. Unfortunately, they seem to be a pyramid marketing scheme, and I do not want to sign up for that just to buy.Other brands mentioned were Source Naturals Life Force, Kurana Corp. Maxxum 4, Twinlab Mega 6.In any event, I'd like comments on a good complete multi-vitamin that would include all essential ingredients available on the internet , as I have trouble getting out.I appreciate any help from the group members. Thank you..Arne

quote:Originally posted by MachineGhostWell, there is one objective way to observe the difference as far as I'm aware of. Other than Kirilian photography to observe the "life force", you can beam polarized light into each of the two different molecules. You'll be able to observe a significant difference in that the natural molecule bends the light ONLY to the right and the synthetic molecule bends the light to the right AND to the left. This is why synthetic Vitamin E has half the potency of natural Vitamin E, or synthetic Beta-Carotene increases risk of cancer, or S-Alpha Lipoic Acid has less potency than R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, and so on. You get what you pay (less) for! :-)Machine Ghost
