REAL FOOD vs. NATURAL & ORGANIC

How natural is "natural"? It is important to understand that when the ingredients of a supplement have been sourced from natural substances they can legally be marketed as 'natural'. But that doesn't mean it is food. A rock is natural, but not food. 

Synthetic vitamins are sourced from "petroleum extracts, coal tar derivatives, and irradiated cattle brains." [1] These are 'natural'... i.e. coming from the earth, but it certainly isn't food. They are in truth isolated nutrients, or synthetic nutrients, that are never found by themselves in nature.

In the video below Dr. Steve Nugent* helps us to understand the value of Mannatech's real food vitamin/mineral.

HOW TO READ A LABEL

Download the Real Food PDF below to help discern from the label of your current vitamin/mineral, whether it truly is as 'natural' as it claims to be. Because of the controversy with the word 'natural' as well as the word, 'organic', Mannatech opted for the words, "Real Food Technology". Because it truly is, real food.
