Are they ectracted from fruit ie: Vit C from an orange; or are they chemically made. Started thinking about this when the wife bought some for the winter months.

Myself Rocky! I am new here in this forum.
I just want to say hello to all. I am glad to be a member here.

Unlike most supplements, these products are made from organic foods, not synthetics. Visit the Naturally Nova Scotia website for more information.

accoording to my Doc, most of the vitamins you take goes down the john anyway. Just keep on flushing that good money away.

Vitamins are synthetically manufactured. If you're concerned that by taking a vitamin youre not doing anything differently than taking a chemically formulated drug that's not how it works. Vitimins are extracted from the various environmental sources in which they come. Interseting fact; did you know that refined foods often extract up to 90% of the nutrients in the food...USDA regulations only require they replace when something is fortified it damn well better be because thats the law.

As for your doctor, he was right most vitamins on the market do get flushed, but there are several pharmaceutical grade vitamins that absorb much better and this is not that case. don't go to walmart and buy your vitamins they are out a little extra money to buy a quality product.
