This article is completely devoted to additives and raising the overall understanding and awareness of them.
The article explains what additives are, a common myth about them, that if they are harmful or not and goes into a good deal of other stuff.
It will give you an insight in the question, whether additives are something that you can afford to neglect.
So, if you’re interested, lets get right into it.
Additives: What Exactly Are They?
The honest truth is that no matter what your eating habits are, it’s pretty sure to say that you are also consuming additives daily. So, what exactly are they?
To put it in simple terms, additives are substances that are added to either food, supplements or medicine to improve or change their qualities. 
They can be used as colors, preservatives, antioxidants, sweeteners, emulsifiers, stabilizers, thickeners, gelling, bulking, glazing, anti-foaming and anti-caking agents, carriers, acidity regulators, flavour enhancers and loads of other ways. 
Supplement Additives and additives in medicine often times are referred to as the other ingredients. But that doesn’t change a thing, those additives that are in food and medicine are the same ones you can find in food.
Some people think that additives are only those substances that have fancy names, like Allura Red AC, Calcium Hydrogen Sulphite, Steviol Glycoside or Polyoxyethylene Sorbitan Monopalmitate.
However, also simple everyday common stuff that we are so used to can be considered and used as additives. Some examples would be sugar, salt, water, oils or Calcium Chloride (extremely common in cheese).
Anything that is ever tied with an E number is also an additive. In Europe E-numbers are the numerical system of representing additives. In other words, any additive that can be used has an E-number for it. For example, Citric acid is also known as E330, Silicon Dioxide – as E551 or stuff like Beta-carotene – as E160a.
E-numbers are most commonly used to shorten the name of an additive so the ingredient list takes up less space on the package of the product. For example, it’s much shorter to list E468 as an additive that it is to use its full name – Crosslinked Sodium Carboxy Methyl Cellulose.
Other times, however, they are used to hiding certain additives that people may not want in their food, supplements or medicine. For example, people may know a certain additive by it’s E-number, but not know its actual name. The same can be true the other way around – people may know the name of the additive they wish to avoid, but not know the equivalent E-number.
A Common Myth About Additives
The two biggest regulators of additives of the modern World are the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Both of them regulate and determine, which additives are safe and okay to use. They also regulate what kind of new additives can be introduced to the market. 
But above all, before approving any additive they collect research on it, ask the applicant to provide sufficient evidence that any one additive is safe for use and consumption, as well as they do their own tests.
Ultimately, and because of the role of these two agencies, many will try to argue that all additives are completely harmless and you should never really waste time in reading the labels.
However, nothing can be further from the truth.
Are Additives Harmful?
In existence there are many actually and truly harmful additives that get approved. More on ‘why’ this happens later in the article, but know that by harmful I mean the following.
Not only are they able to bring about or worsen the condition of any chronic disease, but they can affect your brain’s and body’s functioning in a seriously negative way. And by that not only will it affect your performance, but also your overall life happiness and fulfillment in life. 
For example, Hydrogenated Oils are both one of the most consumed and one of the most harmful substances to consume out there. You’ve probably heard about the Trans Fat, and that they are bad, and that you should not consume them. In truth, hydrogenated oils (or hydrogenated fats) are Trans Fat.
There is no difference between the two at all. The hydrogenated oils are just a relatively new name for that same thing. The name was invented, because people essentially became too aware of the fact that Trans Fat are BAD and should not be consumed. Which, of course, wasn’t in the interests of the food industry.
These type of oils damage cells (that includes scarring arteries), causes obesity, diabetes, ADHD, increases inflammation in general, comprehensively interrupts normal brain function and has numerous other adverse effects.     
In fact, hydrogenated oils are easily among the most harmful substances that are added to food, supplements and medicine. I’m not even exaggerating. 
Also, High-Fructose Corn Syrup is no-health-improver. This is to put it lightly.
The sad thing, however, is that the most exposed group of people to this substance are children. As it essentially is the ultimate form of sugar, it’s most abundant in sweets. This is why manufacturer’s use it in their products – it is sweeter than the classical table sugar. Thus, these products are considered tastier and bought more.
But the effects of this substance are truly devastating. Cancer promotion, weight gain, liver damage, diabetes, obesity, leaky gut, heart disease – these are just some of the truly negative effects of this substance.           .
What’s worse, is that generally people also have become aware that this substance is not okay to use. Don’t get me wrong it’s a good thing, however, the food industry have also become aware that consumers realized High-Fructose Corn Syrup is not okay to use.
Let’s hide it under different names.
And that’s gone as far as there are 15+ ingredients that in truth can potentially be High-Fructose Corn Syrup. So, you might be consuming this substance daily without even knowing it. Here’s a list with those possible alternate names:
- Glucose Syrup,
- Glucose – Fructose Syrup,
- Glucose – Fructose,
- Maize Syrup,
- Tapioca Syrup,
- Fruit Fructose,
- Corn Syrup,
- Natural Corn Syrup,
- Fructose Corn Syrup,
- Dahlia Syrup,
- Crystalline Fructose,
- Fructose Syrup,
- Isolated Fructose,
- And there might be other as well.     
By far most of the sweets, uses this substance as their main source of sugar (sweetness) in the products. In fact, I bet you’d be frustrated to find any kind of bars, any sorts of typical candy, ice-cream etc. that uses the conventional table sugar (processed sugar).
Processed sugar consumption also does not serve you. But it is way, way, way less detrimental than High-Fructose Corn Syrup.     
Practically 99.99% of ice-cream have it, about 95% of other sweets have it. And there are loads of other processed foods that use this substance as a trade off for the conventional sugar.
Also, it’s evident among supplements – mostly those that come in a form of gummy vitamins. And also medications use it for some random reason to make the medicine easier to take or not as distasteful.
One other thing that is extremely common among sweets is Coloring.
Coloring in its essence is a way to add some type of color to any food, supplement or medicine. Have you seen those blue ice-creams? Or maybe bright yellow or green cupcakes?
Yes, that’s coloring.
There are two types of coloring: Natural and Artificial. The artificial one is the worst of the two.         
Studies on artificial coloring have shown to most affect children behavior in a seriously negative way. Some examples are hyperactivity, irritability, and all kinds of other disturbing behavior.
At the same time they’re known to induce and be the sole main cause to a large variety of cancers, no matter your age.
On the other hand natural coloring might seem like the healthy option of coloring. But that not completely true.
While natural coloring for sure is a better option than artificial one, it’s not that great of an option either.  
Essentially it matters greatly how it’s produced. Poor production practices may result in high contamination and toxins and can bring a lot of harm. Also, some types of natural coloring, like ones that are based on Annatto, can cause some serious side-effects.    
Nonetheless, these are just some examples of harmful additives out there. In truth there are many, many, many more in the industry and I will discuss them in the future articles on various additives.
Why Does This Happen?
Well, you probably should be having an echoing question in the back of your head about now? “Didn’t you just said that there are government agencies that determine, if this stuff is harmful?”
Yes, there is.
However… The food industry in of itself is a very rich and powerful industry. Whole economies are based and heavily rely on them. Heavy lobbying in these industries is also involved.
So, in general the legislator and the government pretty much, well essentially don’t intervene with what gets sold as and put into foods. This might sound controversial – but it is the essence of it.
As long something isn’t so bad that it drops people dead immediately or short after, it gets approved. Because government agencies are underfunded to do a full independent in-depth research. So, they highly rely on the safety research that these companies do on their own and submit.
Which of course most of the time is biased. And it potentially represents what the company wants it to represent, regardless of it’s safety.
It’s very important to remember that the food industry’s main goal is to sell. Not to take care of or preserve your health. But to sell and to generate revenue.
And most, by far the most companies, are exactly like that.
They do not care for your health.
I repeat: THEY DO NOT CARE FOR YOUR HEALTH.
On the flip side, there are of course also some companies that truly and deeply care for their consumer health, however, they are an overwhelming minority.
Just to prove the point of how powerful and rich the industry is and that their research can pretty much be what they want it to be, lets look at an example.
In the 1960s the sugar industry paid 3 highly respected, top-shelf scientists to down play the role of sugar in heart disease and instead put it on saturated fat.   
And this was able to derail the discussion about the negative effects of sugar for decades.
Relatively recently it has also been discovered that Coca-Cola funds scientists who shift the blame for obesity away from bad diets and sugary drinks. 
Are All Additives Bad?
So, is every bit of additives bad and harmful for health?
Not at all.
There many additives that pose no real threat to health, like Silicon Dioxide, Magnesium Stearate, Stearic Acid, Lactic Acid and there are many others.               
Sure, there can be some side-effects, if those substances are used in huge amounts. But that is true for anything to be honest. Even water in ridiculously huge amounts can be considered unhealthy.
Although it has to be said that for many this side effect threshold is pretty much physically impossible to achieve.
Of course, we all are different and for some particular even harmless additives can cause an allergenic reaction. But this definitely is not something that people should generally encounter.
Above all though, besides harmful and harmless additives there are some that can even be considered beneficial.
Additives like L-leucine, Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, Fractioned Coconut Oil and even natural flavorings that follow certain production practices (like ones in Multithera 1 Capsule Formula Plus Vitamin K) all can be considered beneficial to health.                             
Of course, there are also many other that could be considered to fall into this category.
Additives: The Conclusions
Additives are something that is extremely commonly used in food, supplements and medicine these days.
Although there are government agencies that supposedly only approve completely harmless additives, in truth it is not the case. Politics, lobbying and various industry interests (mostly food industry’s) are heavily involved in this.
Ultimately, not everything we can buy in the stores is okay to consume, if you want to preserve your health, live a long life and be healthy.
Thus, you should take care and protect your own health.
But here at Supplement Alliance – I will do my absolute best to try to help you to make it happen and to make it as easy of a process as humanly possible.
This is just the first of many articles that are to come on Food Additives, Supplement Additives and Medicine Additives.
