Supplement Safety!

These are some guidelines for when you shop for nutritional supplements. Make sure the ingredients are offered in therapeutic dose ranges. (enough of the ingredient to actually be effective) Try to get ingredients organically produced from uncontaminated sources. Make sure the label is readable and you know what is exactly in there. Make sure the ingredients have a record of being effective.The scientific claims should be about the supplement you're buying, not similar supplements.Last but not least, the supplement should come from companies that have been audited and certified by governing bodies.


  1. You're right.
    Thanks for the reminder.

  4. This is great!!

    My other half likes to take nonsense supplements - I don't know why - but I'm not a big fan of them - at all. Protein I think its enough...why do you need supplements to give you more energy?? I just don't get it. (That's me though! Haha!)

    Thanks for the nice comment on my blog today :)

    The high percentages, for example 200% vitamin C is normal. The RDA's set by the government were only to treat vitamin deficiencies. You will not get any health benefit unless the percentages are in higher amounts. The Government has not changed the RDA's since 1941
