Nutritional supplements: What’s the big deal anyway? They are all the same right?
You see nutritional supplements, natural supplements, herbal remedies, in vitamin stores, grocery stores, drug stores; basically, everywhere you shop. They are on commercials, and even Dr. Oz recommends taking nutritional products.
But how do you know which vitamins and minerals and herbal remedies are the right ones for you?
How do you know if the nutritional supplement information claims are true?
How do you know the food nutrition information ingredients are really in there?
How do you know if the nutritional dietary supplements are safe to take?
The answer to all of these questions, you don’t.
Unlike pharmaceutical drugs that are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), dietary supplements and herbal remedies are not and they do not have to demonstrate their safety and effectiveness. Knowing this, choosing a nutritional supplement off the shelf at your local grocery store, pharmacist or big box chain is like playing Russian roulette with your health.
Q. How do you keep yourself safe, and choose the right nutritional supplements?
A. You choose professional formulated nutritional supplement companies.
Professional formulated nutritional supplements are manufactured by companies that continuously strive to meet industry standards for quality assurance. These types of companies pride themselves in using the purest quality grade raw materials and then monitor and control every product throughout each stage of the manufacturing process. What this means to you is that you can call the manufacture knowing they will openly give you a certificate of analysis that is performed by an independent third party company, giving you peace of mind.
Have you been confused and downright frustrated by the array of whole food supplements, nutritional supplements, natural supplements, herbal remedies, on the drug store shelf that have different types of the same vitamin, different amounts and ingredients that you cannot pronounce?
Do you find yourself so confused and overwhelmed by the differences in price that you reach for the one that is not too cheap and yet not too expensive in the hopes you made the right choice?
You are not alone.
It can be confusing trying to do the right thing for yourself and your family.
Professional grade nutritional supplements and herbal remedies are actually the best bang for your buck and here’s why. They take the guesswork out the equation by doing the work for you.
You will only find bioavailable ingredients, which means your body, will recognize and utilize them immediately to keep you and your immune system healthy.
You will also take less because they are professionally formulated for optimal levels. Unlike retail nutritional supplement companies that often contain amounts based on outdated minimum recommended daily allowance (RDA) standards established by the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Academy of Sciences in 1941. A lot has changed since then including our diets which is why proper amounts of whole food supplements are important to help combat stress and prevent illness and provide you with the energy you need.
There are poor quality nutritional supplements and herbal remedies right now on the shelves that contain one or
more of toxins, pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, hidden
prescription drug compounds waiting for uneducated consumers like yourself (trusting in the claims on the bottle) to buy into the brightly colored packages and clever marketing ploys.
Incorrect dosages and lack of research, safety and effectiveness by some retail supplement companies may result in permanent damage to your liver, kidney, endocrine, cardiovascular and reproductive systems in your body costing you hundreds of thousands of dollars in unnecessary medical bills. Not to mention forever changing your health and lifestyle.
Choosing professional formulated nutritional supplements and herbal remedies will always have your best interest at heart. Every aspect is taken into consideration from the purchase of raw materials, to the bottle you hold in your hand. Professional companies follow standard operational procedures that conform to the Food and Drug Administration’s good manufacturing practice (GMP); ensuring that what you see on the label is what you get; integrity, purity, potency and the right choice.
