BUYING GUIDE TO SUPPLEMENTS

 

Antiaging Nutritional Supplements

There are a large number of antiaging products, including essential vitamins and minerals, being touted on the market today. Most deliver to their promise, but beware, there are those out there that promise far more than the body can deliver.

A good thing to remember when using any antiaging product, if the body is not functioning well on the inside, a large percentage of the product benefit will be lost. Skin which is in good condition, is regularly exfoliated is better able to absorb the antiaging properties of anti-wrinkle creams and serums.

Likewise with nutritional supplements. If the bowel and liver are not in good condition, if the intestinal flora are not in a healthy balance, then one can not hope to extract the nutrients to the optimal levels. Regular bowel cleansing and detoxification programs help to keep things in good order and give you a better return on your investment in antiaging nutritional supplements.

The FDA has ruled that any product which changes the functioning of the human cell, is regarded as medicinal and MUST have NDA approval. Many antiaging nutritional supplements fall into this category, such as glyconutrients, Alpha Lypoic Acid [ALA], and Human Growth Hormone [HGH].

 

Natural or Synthetic Supplements?

There is a recent trend towards natural vitamins and nutritional supplements as opposed to the more traditional, synthetic versions.

Many experts have concluded that natural vitamins and nutritional supplements are easier absorbed by the body, thereby proving more effective in their interaction within the body.

Synthetic products cost less than their natural counterparts. However, some would argue that because natural products may be more effective, the extra expenses associated with these products may pay off over the long run.

There is some limited evidence that some of the materials contained in synthetic vitamins and nutritional supplements may not be beneficial to a human being over time, some might even be harmful over time. The research in this regard is not, as of yet, conclusive. This has already encouraged synthetic supplement manufacturers to boost the absorption potential of their products.

Quality Endorsements

Check the label for quality seals "USP or or “ConsumerLab”. These two seals assure you that the supplement contains every ingredient claimed in the claimed. The seal will also guarantee the supplements have been checked for poisons such as pesticides and contaminants such as bacteria.

Gender & Age Appropriate

If getting multivitamins, chose one specifically for your gender and age. Our need for vitamin supplementation changes at different times in our life.

Expiry Dates

Ensure that expiry dates are well beyond when you expect to finish the vitamin contents. If purchasing EFA's or acidophilus supplements, ensure they have been stored appropriately to avoid oxidation or loss of potency.
