Vitamins Question

Can someone give me the tldr difference between eating vitamins from a natural source in foods vs. eating vitamins through a source like a tablet or ovaltine/powdered drink?

I mean, other than how easily it absorbed, a vitamin is a vitamin right? In theory if I ate only pasta, rice, bread etc all the bad non nutritious foods for you but made sure I drank a glass of ovaltine or vitamin powder drink etc, it should pretty much fulfill the requirements of good nuitrition right?

      What's a booster? I haven't taken any vaccine except for the MMR vaccine when I was a kid in the 80s.

      Um, ok. Lets say I don't overindulge in non nutritious foods like rice, bread, pasta but still drink a vitamin powder drink or tablet that has the vitamins and minerals that are lacking in my diet, should be the same right?

              Sorry, I just thought you were joking when you implied those foods were nutritious.

              Those are the foods I avoid. That and sugary crap.

                this isn't a joke, you should really, really think about the fact that your life is utterly pointless and nobody, not a single soul will miss you when you are gone, you should start living a life with substance and value

          Bread and pasta are nowadays highly processed, meaning that the starches inside of them are very simple. This leads to a faster digestion which, in turn, raises your blood sugar. Not only does this lead to a worse digestion and being hungry faster again, it can also lead to diabetes.
          You want whole grain or whole pseudo grains instead, they have more complex starches that are better for you. Most kinds of rice are also highly processed. Also, they usually contain low amounts of fiber. Most people don't get enough fiber, which leads to digestive problems and diseases.
          Eat some better carbohydrates, dude. Quinoa, buckwheat, millet, bulgur and couscous are just some examples of better sources of carbs.

            A vitamin is not a vitamin. A vitamin is part of an organism. Taking vitamin C is not the same as eating an orange. Taking iron is not the same as eating spinach. And eating spinach in autumn (when it doesn't exist naturally) is nowhere near the same as eating spinach in spring, when it's at its best (that's now).

              I've only had canned Popeye. Surely that is harvested in the peak of quality and nutritional value.

        Sure, as long as you pay attention to the form of the compound. For instance, don't take the cyano form of B12. I "eat healthy" yesterday I had 4 eggs, 6 sausage links, a bag of cashews, a piece of salmon and some green beans. Didn't get all the RDA of vitamins. So I take a vitamin supplement.

    They are call supplements for a reason, they don't fill out needs 100% and are just there to assist. The only real difference between food/tablets is that vitamins/minerals like to bind to things and that solids would slow down the digestion rate, so if you are just taking a tablet, you wont absorb it all if you don't eat something with it.

      Ok so say you just take a vitamin with unhealthy stuff like plain rice, pasta, bread etc? Is it just as good as if I had a wide variety of meats, fruits, vegetables that the vitamin already contains?

    I dunno. I have health problems that lead to me suffering from deficiencies. If I eat a lot of liver they start going away. But I get sick of eating it. I'm trying these high quality vitamins and they should be giving me as much as what I got from liver but it doesn't seem to be working as well.

    >a vitamin is a vitamin right?
    Not exactly. The vitamins that you buy in pill form are considered supplements, and at least in the United States, are unregulated by the FDA. Those vitamins might contain 100% of your RDA for Vitamin C. Or they might contain 60%. Or 350%. There really is no way to know for sure exactly how much you are getting. It is always better to get your vitamins from fresh foods like fruits and vegetables, since they are always healthy anyway. There are some exceptions to this rule. For example B12 is somewhat difficult to get from food alone, even amongst meat eaters, and Vitamin D can only be made by exposing your skin to harmful radiation from the Sun (the biggest factor in skin cancer). Many of the foods you are already eating (like breads, pastas, cereal, and milk) are already fortified with specific vitamins for this reason. So in most cases, it doesn't hurt to take a multivitamin just to cover any areas you might be missing. But it can never fully replace a real healthy diet.
