    Manufacturing process can introduce toxic chemicals.

    The "unnatural" versions may be less or more bioavailable. Less can make it useless, or worse, detrimental as the biological pathways are shifted and cause disastrous side effects. More bioavailable may be better than natural sources, but may be excessive.

    The reason you shouldn't take them is because you were not intelligent enough to discern the above two facts, therefore you lack the intelligence to find good sources of unnatural supplements.

    What nutrients are you trying to even get?

      Vitamins and magnesium. Due to numerous factors, fresh produce isn't always a given where I live.

        Basically your body absorbs and processes things differently. For example, off the top of my head is Vitamin A. Beta carotene is plant Vitamin A, and some people can only absorb 2% of it. Retinol (animal vitamin A) is more easy to absorb. Beta carotene can make your skin orange, retinol might not affect your skin at all—or turn it reddish pink, like a lot of carnivores.

        Best thing to do is find studied supplements or ones with a large amount of anecdotes, or just get the one that matches real foods.

        BUT
        Even then it can be different... because of matrices (what surrounds the nutrient or chemicals)

        Picrel.
        When the body can't shit out toxins or sweat out toxins, it puts them "in jail" by putting them in a matrix where it can't wreak havoc on the rest of the cells in your body. Cooking meat might destroy that matrix and allow you to easily absorb the poison.

          I take one bottle with three water dissolvent vitamin pills (calcium, magnesium and a multivitamin one) once maybe every two weeks, sometimes between months. How damaging could that be? Certainly must be better than not getting those nutrients at all if I were to stick with my current diet of literally just bread and rice.

    It's a meme in general. Anything that isn't vitamin D (especially if you get a proper prescription for it like I did for a weekly capsule) or vitamin C is a joke.

          It's extremely unlikely that you are deficient in Magnesium and problem lies elsewhere.

          Nope. Veggies conrain 30-40 less magnesium than a century ago. We drink desalinated water now.
          So go frick yourself with that "just select proper foods". Yea, not is 300mg, but a century ago people were cobsuming 600. Norms are shit. Now try to get 600mg of megnesium from the food you have listed (book value is overestimated as relies on measures taken half a century ago. But you won't be able to do it even overestimating it.)

        Because vitamin C has a really short life in the human body. To reach and most importantly maintain proper levels of vitamin C you need >1g every 3 to 4 hours. Now tell me, would you rather pop a pill a couple of times a day or eat 14 oranges (assuming they are not all kinds of fricked up like 90% of produce is today) every 4 hours?
        Watch out for your copper levels though.

    When it comes to vitamins and supplements, almost everything that is not behind a prescription and is readily available for purchase and consumption by any moron who walks into a pharmacy is inefficient, flat out lies, placebo, doesn't work.
    If you really care about your health to the point you are willing to pop any and all pills, get a full bloodwork done first. Its cheap these days. See your deficiencies and target those by consulting an actual doctor who will give you access to actual supplements that work and could harm the average moron if they used it without actually needing it.

          The right side is sunlight vitamin D, left side is food or supplement D. Anything with a red asterisk represents genetic variations that could interfere with vitamin D absorption.

          There are more steps for the left (ingested vitamin D) so there's a greater chance something about your genetics will be off and inhibit absorption.

    There's nothing stopping you besides the chance that you could be gullible enough to believe FUD spreading israelites in this thread.
    Supplementing means you get to consume a large amount of a certain nutrient without needing to gorge 30lbs of food like a fat frick.
    Just make sure it is a legit lab selling legit supps.
