Our Tips For Choosing A Supplement

Dietary supplements in the U. S. are unregulated and consumers have had only a 1 in 5 chance of buying a product that contains the actual ingredients stated. . Because of this industry wide problem, people should choose a manufacturer that is pharmaceutical GMP compliant. These facilities comply with the most stringent manufacturing standards, to eliminate the possibility of harmful contaminants and to also make sure that you are getting the amount of ingredients you actually paid for.

Be sure the product does not contain any fillers or additives (examples include: sugar, starch, gluten, silica (sand!) or any artificial colors or flavors of any kind.
