A few weeks ago, I read an article about Supplements and the stores that sell them.
The article mentioned that 4 out of 5 tested supplements from major high street stores contained none listed on the label. Yes, it’s true.
It also said that in many cases, the supplements from these stores contained little more than cheap fillers (mainly chalk)!
Although this was an American article, I’m afraid the same is true in the UK, particularly in the major high street health food stores.
Think about it; these stores sell supplements in huge quantities at low prices! We’ve all seen the offers for buy one get one free and such!
How would you sustain such cheap prices if you were one of those stores? Reducing the quality or the number of ingredients per supplement could reduce your costs and increase your profits.
I believe if you buy cheap supplements, you’ll get inferior products. That’s not saying expensive supplements are any better, but if they are less mass-produced, that is a good sign.
How can you be sure you are getting what you pay for?
A set of minimum standards must be met for producing medicines, called the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). Supplement manufacturers don’t need to meet these standards as they are only for drugs and veterinary medicines.
However, good supplement manufacturers will ensure their products meet these standards or are produced in GMP-certified facilities.
So, when researching a brand of supplements or a supplement company, look at their website to see what they say about the quality of their accessories. The good ones will tell you they comply with GMP guidelines.
The poor-quality suppliers, stores or brands will tell you that their supplements are “produced to the highest quality” but not mention GMP anywhere!
It makes you wonder, doesn’t it?
Can I suggest a better alternative?
Yes, I can! I am delighted to recommend a company I trust and use for my Vitamins, minerals, probiotics and supplements, and I am an official distributor.
