A friend of mine (thank you Ann!) forwarded me this link, and so I thought I would share it. The author explains the possible dangers of synthetic vitamins namely Vitamin A and Vitamin D2 found in milk alternatives. Find article here: Coconut and Almond Milk in Cartons Not a Healthy Buy by Sarah in TheHealthyHomeEconomist. I also like that the author gives three different homemade alternatives to the alternatives: check out how to make your own rice, coconut, and almond milk here. Remember the things you eat the most of try to make the healthiest: that’s the best start to a healthier diet.
Its best to have your Vitamin A in beta carotene form and your Vitamin D in the D3 form. This is especially important for pregnant women–check your prenatals.
