Tons of vitamins removed from sewage treatment plants

Sewage treatment plants are reporting that they remove TONS of undissolved vitamins from their treatment ponds every year. Literally money down the drain. Synthetic vitamins and minerals are typically delivered in a packed tablet that does not dissolve in the stomach and thus pass right through the body. Of course this means that very little, if any, vitamins and minerals are absorbed by the body.

Is it even necessary to supplement with vitamins and minerals? The traditional view is that if we eat a balanced diet we should receive all the vitamins and minerals we need. However, this has been shown to be false. As briefly described in a previous blog our food supply is devoid of nutrition. The situation is now so bad that supplements are now right near the top of the new U.S. food pyramid. Another change to the food pyramid was an increase in the daily requirements of fruits and vegetables – to the point where no one is actually capable of eating that much or would go broke doing so.

Dieters are especially prone to nutritional deficiency conditions as their food intake is reduced. Dieting is not about reducing nutrition, it’s about reducing calories, fat, and some carbohydrates.

While many people recognize the need to supplement with vitamins and minerals, they usually are not aware of the differences between good supplements and poor ones and therefore make their selection based primarily on price. There is in fact a substantial difference between supplements.

Synthetic vitamins are cheap to manufacture. If you are buying inexpensive vitamins then they are synthetic. Sorry, that’s simply the way it is.

By the way, if you are also taking vitamins as an anti-oxidant you need to know that due to the manufacturing process inexpensive vitamins are already oxidized and do not work as anti-oxidants.

Because your body was designed to extract vitamins and minerals from plants it only makes sense to choose a vitamin and mineral supplement that is plant based. Plant based supplements readily dissolve and the body can recognize and process them as intended.

Take care

This is why I laugh at people who take water soluable vitamins. They don't realize that if they take too much they just pee it out.

"Water soluable" means that the vitamins dissolve in water. This is important because when a person is under stress, their stomach doesn't produce a lot of acids to break down food (or vitamins). And who isn't under stress? If your vitamins don't dissolve in water, don't eat them. If EVERYONE ate ONLY water soluable vitamins, we would not have this problem in our sewage treatment plants and we all would be a lot healthier!

OKay, I did forget some things that I learned in school. There are water soluable and fat soluable vitamins. Some kinds of vitamins only require water to be dissolved and other kinds need fat. That's why it is important to eat healthy fats. At any rate, it is still important that the vitamins you eat are able to break down in water (without the vinegar).

If your vitamins don't have the Oligo trademark, they are either going straight through you, or creating free radicals in your body.
You need vitamins today, because our soils are depleted of nutrients, and the food grown no longer has the quality it did 50 years ago. Come see me at

Where is the evidence that "Sewage treatment plants are reporting that they remove TONS of un-dissolved vitamins from their treatment ponds every year"? There is no evidence because this is all another myth perpetuated by repeated posts on the Internet.

Do some real research and you'll find that the there is no real evidence of this problem.

You can start here: http://www.dumbassguide.info/index.php/entry/blog_id=23/

Unfortunately, even dietitians have read and believe this myth which adds to the validity of the claim. It is simply not true.

Your stomach is an amazing organ in that it contains very strong acid (hydrochloric acid), strong enough to burn your skin. While everybody's body is different and while I believe there may be some people who's digestive system can't break down a multivitamin (they then have a very serious problem, far beyond not being able to digest a multivitamin) I find it hard to believe, to the point of absurdity, that tons of vitamins are making it to sewage treatment plants un-dissolved.
