Why should we trust your nutritional labels?
Yes Arbonne is full of synthetic nutrients. Click here to see why synthetics are so bad for our health.
Let's take for example one Arbonne product (however all are similar). First, the Arbonne Chocolate Protein Shake Mix (Powder) has many ingredients that can immediately tell you about the integrity (or lack of integrity) of the company.
- B12 (as Cyanocobalamin). Cyanocobalamin is the worst kind of B12 for your health. This is because Cyanocobalamin contains 2% Cyanide. Yes, this is the same Cyanide that is a poison. Cyanocobalamin is used in most supplements because it has a very long shelf-life and is very inexpensive. While this type of B12 will not kill a person in small isolated doses, it can over tax the human liver if used in large quantity/duration and or if combined with other toxins.
- Folic Acid. Humans need Folate, not Folic Acid. Folic Acid is the synthetic chemical version of Folate which is found naturally in plants.
- Vitamin A (as retinyl palmitate). A study by U.S. government scientists suggests that retinyl palmitate, a form of vitamin A, may speed the development of skin tumors and lesions when applied to the skin in the presence of sunlight (NTP 2012). Officials in Germany and Norway have cautioned that retinyl palmitate and other vitamin A ingredients in cosmetics could contribute to vitamin A toxicity due to excessive exposure use. (German BfR 2014, Norwegian SCFS 2012a). If this is the concern for simply applying it to your skin, what is this chemical doing to the bodies of those who ingest it? Well according to All About Nutritional Healing which was written by Judith A. DeCava, CNC, LNC.: "Vitamin A Palmitate, Retinyl Palmitate and Retinol Palmitate... is rated as a moderate hazard ingredient. It warns of potential side effects including cancer, developmental and reproductive toxicity, … cellular level changes, and organ system toxicity. Retinyl Palmitate has been shown to produce excess reactive oxygen species that can interfere with cellular signaling, cause mutations, lead to cell death, and it may be implicated in cardiovascular disease. It has caused reproductive effects at low doses in one or more animal studies, and there is limited evidence of cancer and skin toxicity"
