Why Should You Dump Your Vitamin Pills?
There is a myth as many people even most family doctors recommend people to take vitamin C pills to help boost your immune system. Real traditional Chinese medicine doctors will not recommend that simply because the vitamin C from the pills doesn’t equal to the vitamin C from natural food or herbs. Anything through refining process becomes small molecule which can be easily absorbed by cancer cells. Also, these refined pills will release the important water in your body and could cause other health issues. In contrary, nutrition from natural food comes in the format of large molecule and can be absorbed by your normal body cells, but not cancer cells. All the varieties of vegetables and fruits contain large amount of vitamins and fiber that your body needs. So why take those refined product to increase risks of encouraging cancer or abnormal cell growth in your body? Just eat balanced natural colorful food.
