Letter Re: Ebola Unafraid


I appreciate and enjoyed ShepherdFarmerGeek’s article and follow-up on “Ebola Unafraid”. However, I think a word of caution is in order. In particular, Vitamins A, C, and E are frequently synthetic versions of the natural vitamins; they are produced in factories, and the vitamin supplements are typically laced with GMO’s that are involved with the manufacturing process. Vitamin C sold as “Ascorbic Acid” is actually a derivative of mold. I am not a doctor or even a nutritionist, but I have read enough to know that we should avoid the cheap forms of these vitamins. Vitamin D3 is safe to buy as far as I know, but readers should search for natural, organic, non-GMO vitamin C supplements, which will cost more than the synthetics.

Here are some references:

Vitamin C/Ascorbic Acid is bad:

Here are some vitamins that I like:

There are other brands on Amazon, but I can’t speak to them. As you can see, natural vitamins are not inexpensive. It should go without saying, but I am just a consumer and have no financial interest in any of these companies.
