Supplements

January 25, 2010

What can you do to be sure you are purchasing supplements that are high quality, nutritionally balanced and that you putting into your body what the packaging states? Here are 5 tips to assist in this process:

  1. Perform careful research! Don’t just go along with the latest trends in supliments.  Remimber, if it sounds to good to be true, it usually is.  
  2. Look for a company that invests significant time and money in extensive scientific research, has worldwide scientific alliances, and who puts quality first. 
  3. Check to see if there is a guaranteed potency. Yes, there are companies who offer this and who follow stringent analytical and quality control procedures. In other words, what you see on a product’s label is actually in the product. 
  4. Make sure the company’s products follow pharmaceutical-grade “good manufacturing practices” (GMP). This is a step above FDA regulations. GMP means that a variety of government agencies conduct periodic inspections and require control of procedures, as well as documentation. 
  5. Lastly, look to see if the company’s products provides a money-back guarantee.
