Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Sorbate Found
in Many Vitamins and Nutritional Supplements

Sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate are often used as preservatives in foods as well as in vitamins and  nutritional supplements.  They show up most often in liquid vitamins and mineral drinks, as well as in juice drinks such as Noni juice.  You can find these preservatives in nutritional supplements on your regular grocery shelf,  in “health” food stores and also in many drinks sold in multi-level marketing programs.  Many of these juice companies tell you about how people living out in the tropics consumed these fruits and/or their juices and lived to be very old.  Please note these long-lived peoples undoubtedly did NOT drink juices in nutritional supplement form with sodium benzoate or potassium sorbate in them!

Harvard MD Said Sodium Benzoate “Harmful to Health” in 1920’s

Way back in the 1920’s, around the time when the Food & Drug Act was passed, Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, M.D. tried to get sodium benzoate outlawed.  He called it a “monstrosity” and thought it was harmful to health and should not be used in foods.  Dr. Wiley taught at Harvard and also worked for the US Department of Agriculture assisting Congress in answering questions about chemical preservatives in foods.  Sodium benzoate was, however, a boon to food manufacturers, since it greatly extended the shelf life of many processed foods, including vitamins and nutritional supplements.  That is why it can still be found in many products today, especially in process foods and nutritional supplements, including vitamins.

“Store Sodium Benzoate Away from Food & Beverages”

The Chemical Analysis Data Sheet on sodium benzoate tells you to “Store away from food and beverages.”  Can you believe that?  They tell you to store sodium benzoate away from food and beverages, yet it is an additive in many of them, including various nutritional supplements, like vitamins, minerals and juice drinks!

Do NOT Consume Sodium Benzoate or Potassium Sorbate, whether in your foods, your vitamins, or other nutritional supplements!

We recommend that you NOT consume any products that contain sodium benzoate or potassium sorbate preservatives, especially vitamins and nutritional supplements that you take for your health.  Ask your supplement manufacturer to guarantee that their products are free of these toxic preservatives.
