“Enriched” sounds healthy, right?
Unfortunately, these foods get “enriched” with synthetic vitamins and/or minerals our bodies often can’t use properly. These synthetic nutrients can actually cause health issues.For example, many people have the MTHFR mutation today. When someone with the MTHFR mutation consumes folic acid (the synthetic form of folate) the body can’t process it. The synthetic folic acid builds up in the system and the excess ends up stored as a toxin in organs and fat tissue.
