The Vitamin Code by Massoud Arvanaghi, PHD and Mike Yorkey is a groundbreaking book that delves into the myths and mysteries about multivitamins. The Vitamin Code is an in-depth journey into one mans passion to create effective vitamins and minerals.
When you think of multivitamins, you probably do not envision fleeing from Nazis (or communists, take your pick), aquariums as lab equipment or Nobel Prize winning scientists. You wouldnt think there was a provocative tale behind a multivitamin or that there has been a battle raging over multivitamins and their effectiveness - a battle whose lines were drawn almost a half-century ago. Most of all, you probably dont associate vitamins and minerals with breathtaking breakthroughs like raw and food created that combine the wonder of nature and hard science.
A pharmacist by trade, Endre Szalay worked for various pharmaceutical firms in quality control, but on his free time, he explored an idea that stemmed from his youngest days when he studied biochemistry at the University of Szeged in Austria. Mr. Szalay believed that synthetically created vitamins and minerals could somehow be brought back to their natural form and get closer to the nutritive power found in real food. He quit a high position to start a company devoted to creating nutrients in the form of food. After years of painstaking and patient research, Mr. Szalay "cracked" the Vitamin Code and developed the first raw food created vitamins and minerals.
