Synthetic ingredients in supplements are not only common but they are also easy to spot if you know what to look for.
If you see an ingredient listed "as" something else, this is a good indicator that it is synthetic. For example, most people think that "Ascorbic Acid" is vitamin C. It is not. Ascorbic Acid is only a small part of vitamin C, and it cannot be used properly without the other cofactors, in the real vitamin C.
Another common misconception is that people (especially women) need "Folic Acid". They don't. Folic Acid is the synthetic version of Folate, which is found abundantly in various plants.
As a general rule, if you can spot one synthetic nutrient, or one bad ingredient, you can be sure that the producers of the product do not have your health as their primary goal. It should cast doubt upon the entire ingredient list.
