Are You Taking A Quality Nutritional Supplement Or Wasting Your Money?

Apr 3, 2008
Knowing that nutritional supplements are nature's greatest gift for our overall health and well-being, you should feel a difference when you take a nutritional supplement. Natural energy should be unleashed, giving you the ability for peak performance, a new zest for life, and restoring youthful exuberance. Nutritional supplements also prevent the onset of chronic disease, as your body knows when it's getting the best nutrition available, the body will give off undeniable results.

If you are already taking nutritional supplements and not feeling a difference, it's unlikely that you are getting the health benefits that you are actually paying for, as some supplements are made to be sold by mass market stores, causing manufacturers to cut expenses by eliminating the quality control measures that are present in their production process and raw materials. After they have cut these corners, these manufacturers' finished products are less costly for the consumer, but also less effective, and sometimes not effective at all. Your body cannot be fooled by these types of supplements. When purchasing a supplement, you should not base your purchase upon the price. Do you really want to bargain with your health?

Most people put the best motor oil in their car, hoping that it will last a long time and only several cars will be needed in their lifetime. But you only have one body, so you shouldn't settle for anything less than the absolute best health-enhancing supplements, no matter the cost. It's very important that you don't sacrifice your own health, while looking for discount supplements because chances are, these discount supplements may ultimately not even work.

These ineffective supplements sneak into the market without the knowledge of most consumers. However, the latest government regulations actually allow manufactures to put in 20% less of any ingredients than their labels claim. There are several other factors that can diminish the potency of a supplement, sometimes by over 60%. Included in these factors are impurities and exposure to light, moisture, heat, and oxidation that occurs throughout the manufacturing and packaging process.

It costs a company far less to make a product when it ignores these important factors, so in the end, it's the consumer who suffers by getting far less than the potency and effectiveness that they paid for. For example, a bottle that is labeled saying it has vitamin C of 1000 mg may actually contain much less than 500 mg of active vitamin C per tablet. These unprotected nutrients included in this supplement continue to deteriorate as they sit on the store shelf. This type of consumer deception affects thousands of shoppers daily in numerous stores across the country.

Those consumers who are informed realize that the cheaper vitamin is usually not the better, and also understand that in matters of health, quality should be their top priority. When purchasing a product, you should look for objective proof that what is on the supplement's label is actually what is in the finished product. Since this proof is not required in supplement production, most manufacturers do not provide ingredient verification. You also need to feel a difference, as your body will be able to tell if a supplement it truly working.
