Flintstones Vitamins = Junk Food

Flintstones Vitamins, #1 Pediatrician’s Choice

(says so on the package!)

Some doctors even recommend Flintstones vitamins for gastric bypass patients because they think a chewable multi is easier for them to absorb.

(Side note, if you have had a gastric bypass, you are probably deficient in Vitamin B12 – get tested and start supplementing before they wrongly diagnose you as having MS!)

 Extra alarm bells

  1. Sugar, Maltodextrin, Dextrose monohydrate (What is the source? Genetically modified corn? Is the dextrose monohydrate chemical from China?) Artificial sweeteners (sucralose) and sugar alcohols (sorbitol)
  2. Natural and Artificial Flavors (secret names the government allows for more MSG)
  3. Red #40, Blue #2, Yellow #6. <any dyes have been banned because they are carcinogens, I’m sure these will be banned for the same reason one day).
  4. Artificial Trans Fats from soy or canola (Mono- and Diglycerides) can cause increased risk of type 2 diabetes, obesity, stroke and heart disease.
  5. Bottom of the barrel low-quality synthetic vitamins are used in this toxic vitamin product.
  • Calcium carbonate is gym chalk, not well absorbed in the body
  • dl-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate (synthetic Vitamin E often derived from petroleum products)
  • Zinc oxide, cupric oxide and Magnesium oxide – cheap minerals, poorly absorbed
  • Folic acid
