There is a lot of debate about the comparative advantages and disadvantages of synthetic versus vitamins from food sources, and there are passionate critics and ardent supporters on both sides of this debate. Those on the side of synthetic vitamins argue that there is no evidence that natural vitamins work and question whether it matters if the vitamins are lab-made or from food as long as they work as intended to minimize deficiency risk and support good health. Staunch supporters of vitamins from food sources, the kind of vitamins that are extracted entirely from authentic, pantry-friendly foods, counter that while there may not be conclusive scientific evidence that vitamins from food work or that they are substantially better than synthetic isolates, there is certainly sufficient evidence that synthetic vitamins, even if they work, are certainly less safe than vitamins from foods.
