In this episode we talk all about supplements. Topics include:
My own initial thoughts on supplements and the countless ones that exist for just as many reasons. I also share a few instances where I don't think supplements are the answer.
I talk about the big business of supplements, which has become a hundred billion dollar industry in America alone. Add to that the fact that there's very little regulation and you're left with the wild west. For every legit company there's probably ten just trying to make a quick buck.
I talk about unlisted ingredients and adulteration due to low standards and poor quality control within the industry.
Then I talk about the 4 companies that will put a seal on a supplement. These seals, however, don't indicate anything about safety or efficacy. They are just ensuring that what's on the label is what's in the bottle. That's it. And you can find those seals here.
Then we talk about bioavailability. This is one of those things I never hear anybody mention, but many of the ingredients in common supplements are in forms your body can't even use. So you end up paying for expensive urine.
Next I talk about how to make the right choices for you and how to source your supplements properly. This takes a bit of legwork, but if you're going to spend your money you should be sure you're getting something for it.
Then I talk about my top 4 supplements that everybody can benefit from. And I go into detail about them but they are a multivitamin, fish oil, vitamin D, and probiotics. And if you're going to add a 5th then I'd recommend a greens supplement.
And then in this week's Call-to-Action I give you 6 rules/guidelines to supplements that should keep you from wasting your time and money.
