Synthetic vs. Natural Supplements

Synthetic multi vitamins and minerals are manufactured artificially in an industrial process. AFA is a whole nutrient dense superfood and 100% natural wild harvested and our harvester is USDA certified organic.

According to statistics about 50% of you currently take a multivitamin, anti oxidant or mineral supplement. While there are many reputable companies trying to supply you with quality products, scientific studies reveal that most of these products don't work and in some cases can cause harm. AFA is a whole food organic and sustainable source of over 100 nutrients. Your body recognizes it as food and it is 97% bioavailable.

Good Habits

  • Ingest AFA Daily
  • Choose Natural Whole Food Sources Only
  • Bad Habits

  • Synthetic Supplements
  • Combining High Doses of Single Isolated Supplements
  • All Antioxidants that are not found in a whole food source
  • Excessive amounts of single minerals
  • AFA vs. Synthetic Supplements

    AFA is a nutrient dense wild harvested superfood. The OPPOSITE of synthetic supplement

    The supplement industry has created confusion by isolating nutrients and selling them. With synthetic supplements the additional enzymes or mineral cofactors are missing or are not paired or “chelated'' making these supplements a waste of money, time and effort. Oftentimes choosing to supplement with one mineral without a balanced approach will detract from your ability to naturally absorb another. The delicate balance of managing your micronutrient intake is why AFA makes so much sense. You can literally throw away all your supplements and replace it with one, take it daily and be healthier.

    Nature is and will always be the best chemist. She has provided us with all the nutrients we need to be healthy and thrive. The 100 nutrients from AFA work via multiple pathways to make us healthy. It is simply a matter of ingesting them. That is why John Hopkins as a matter of policy recommends that patients get their nutrients from food. But with the lack of minerals in soil and enzymes being removed from most fruits and vegetables this is not always possible. AFA is a food, its just so nutrient dense in its dried form that 1- 5 grams a day can raise your nutrient levels and change your life.
