What is a Supplement?
Supplements are something that is added to someoneDs diet to impro-e health. !he most /ommon ones in/lude -itamins? minerals or her6s and they /an either /ome in a pill? liHuid or /apsule (orm? and /an 6e la6eled as a supplement. • Vitamins G are de(ined as 6eing a su6stan/e that is organi/ and is needed 6y the human 6ody to per(orm a -ariety o( (un/tions.

, /ommon e4ample o( this 1ould 6e something li"e -itamin ? 1hi/h I am sure you are (amiliar 1ith. *a/" in the 15th to 1:th /entury a disease /alled s/ur-y 1hi/h is /aused 6y a la/" o( -itamin 1as popular amongst sailors on long o/ean -oyages. S/ur-y is a disease 1hi/h /auses 6leeding pro6lems? paralysis? irrita6ility and e-entually death. ,nother (amous -itamin is something /alled (oli/ a/id or also "no1n as -itamin *). What ma"es this -itamin so important is due to the (a/t that 1ithout it a 1oman /an in/rease her /han/e o( ha-ing /ertain 6irth de(e/ts 6y as mu/h as %0C. *esides -itamins someone /an also ta"e a supplement to get minerals. • Minerals G are really inorgani/ elements 1hi/h donDt /ontain a /ar6on 1hile -itamins are organi/ that do ha-e this /ar6on mole/ule. ,nother 1ay that these t1o are di((erent is 6e/ause minerals are mu/h simpler in /hemi/al (orm than -itamins? 6e/ause they /ontain atoms o( the same element.

,n e4ample o( a mineral 1ould 6e something li"e al/ium. Ane o( the reasons that /al/ium is important is 6e/ause it strengthens 6ones. *elie-e it or not (alling do1n is one o( the top reasons (or death in the elderly. !a"ing a /al/ium supplement /an 6e a -ery good ensure someone is getting enough and not 6e/ome de(i/ient and ha-e (ragile 6ones. • Ma or Minerals ! ,re present in large amounts in the 6ody and are essential (or 6ody operations. 7ore than .#0 7& are needed. Tra"e Minerals ! ,re needed in mu/h smaller Huantities less than .0 7& a day are needed. 7ost tra/e minerals are 6ound to organi/ /ompound (or transportation and (ood. Just li"e a 'amprey (ish hit/hes a ride on a 1hale.

'astly? someone /an get something /alled her6s in their diet to impro-e their health. • #er$s G are de(ined as 6eing small plant ingredients that ha-e (leshy parts.

!he 6ig di((eren/e 6et1een her6s (rom -itamins and minerals is that someone /an e4perien/e some ma;or health pro6lems i( they la/" /ertain -itamins and minerals. 0er6s on the other hand are really ta"en (or an added health 6onus. , great e4ample o( an her6 1ould 6e something li"e res-eratrol. Res-eratrol /omes (rom the s"in o( grapes and lately has gotten popular due to popular !2 sho1s li"e 50 7inutes? Aprah? 9r. AB and +o4 Ke1s. , 6ig reason that res-eratrol is popular is 6e/ause it has 6een sho1n to e4tend li(e in /ertain li-ing organisms 6y as high as %0C. It has also 6een pro-en to 6e -ery e((e/ti-e 1ith (ighting /an/er and helping 1ith 1rin"les. 0o1e-er? itDs important to "no1 that many o( these studies ha-e 6een per(ormed on animals and (unguses and not on humans.

%ood Things to &ook 'or in a Supplement
Whether it is a multi8-itamin? omega 3? 1eight loss? (itness? or her6al supplement there are a (e1 "ey things that /an in/rease the /han/e o( it 6eing -ery good Huality. *elo1 are some great points that /an help someone 1ith their shopping. • ,s you might 6e a6le to already guess a top thing someone /an loo" (or 1hen /hoosing a supplement is the age o( a /ompany. !he longer a /ompany has 6een in 6usiness? the less ris"y it is to pur/hase (rom them. ,lso as I mentioned a6o-e i( a /ompany has 6een in 6usiness o-er 10 years than that is a really good sign? 6e/ause they 1ill pro6a6ly stay around. • hoose a multi8-itamin that has all the -itamins and mineral dosage that is reHuired. You /an use the guide that I pro-ided in this report to /he/" to see i( a multi8-itamin has the dosage reHuirements o( the important -itamins and minerals. !his /an end up sa-ing you money rather than pur/hase ea/h ingredient separately. ,lso? i( you /an (ind one that not only /om6ines -itamins and minerals? 6ut her6s as 1ell then this /an sa-e you e-en more money as 1ell as ma"e it easier to /onsume. ,lso itDs important to "no1 that some nutrients 1or" 6etter 1hen ta"en 1ith other nutrients? su/h as /al/ium and magnesium. • 3nteri/ /oating is good (or -itamins and minerals? 6ut might not 6e (or some her6s and not (ish oil. 3nteri/ /oating is an e4pensi-e pro/ess that prote/ts nutrients (rom stoma/h a/id so they /an 6e 6etter digested in the intestines. Without this pro/ess some o( the nutrients 1ill get destroyed. +ish Ail on the other hand is 6est a6sor6ed in the stoma/h. ompanies might use enteri/ /oating to mas" ran/id odors? (rom a spoiled produ/t. 3nteri/ /oating on her6s really is depended on ea/h her6. Sin/e this topi/ is so -ast IDm going to go o-er it later.

Seal o( appro-alDs /an 6e good. Su/h as ISP (Inited States Pharma/opeia)? KP,? Kational Produ/ts ,sso/iation? onsumer'a6s. Yet I ha-e read they all reHuire lots o( money to use their seal? so the /onsumer does pay (or it. 'oo" (or a 6rand that /omplies 1ith pharma/euti/al &7P /omplian/e. Kearly e-ery /ompany is going to say that their 6rand is the 6est? and might ha-e some graphs to support it. !he (a/t is that itDs not o6;e/ti-e? and itDs 6iased. !hird party testing is al1ays more relia6le (or this (a/t? and &7P /omplian/e uses go-ernment -eri(i/ation. &7P /omplian/e not only helps -alidate the Huality? 6ut most importantly it 1ill help ma"e a supplement less ris"y 1hen it /omes to 6eing 6ad (or someoneDs health.

I( a supplement has a /erti(i/ate o( analysis then that is another really good thing to ha-e. !his is another third party test to see that the ingredients on the la6el a/tually mat/h 1hat is inside. Without this la6el youDre ta"ing the /ompany at its 1ord that youDre getting 1hat you thin" youDre getting. I( a /ompany uses standardi<ed her6al e4tra/ts then that is also great to ha-e. !hese are 1hat /ontain the a/tual a/ti-e ingredients o( a her6? and 1here the true therapeuti/ 6ene(it lies. Remem6er a lot o( /ompanies that mar"et supplements donDt use standardi<ed her6al e4tra/ts? 6e/ause it is less e4pensi-e (or them not to and there(ore they ma"e more money.

, money 6a/" guarantee is al1ays ni/e. 7ost produ/ts ha-e a 30 day guarantee and i( a produ/t has something longer than that is -ery good as 1ell. 30 day money 6a/" guarantees online are not that good 6e/ause it ta"es to time (or a produ/t to ship to someone? test it out? tra-el to the postal /enter and then ship it 6a/". It /ould ta"e 30 days to do all o( this 1or" and that someone 1ould not 6e a6le to get their money 6a/". ,nother great thing a6out a money 6a/" guarantee is that it represents /on(iden/e. !he longer the guarantee the more /on(iden/e a /ompany has in their produ/t and that is a good thing. I( the produ/t doesnDt ha-e a money 6a/" guarantee? then itDs ;ust another 1arning sign that you should steer /lear o( it.

, produ/t has a lot o( studies? tests and Huality /he/"s then these are all good things. 'oo" (or a produ/t that has an e4piration date that is -ery (ar a1ay. I( the produ/t does not ha-e an e4piration date than that is usually not good at all? and itDs pro6a6ly 6est to /hoose another supplement.

I( a produ/t uses natural -itamins rather than syntheti/ then you (ound an e4/ellent produ/t? and I 1ill e4plain more a6out this later.

(iggest Red )lags When Choosing a Supplement
!his list is going to 6e ;ust a little di((erent (rom the one a6o-e. *elo1 are ;ust some red (lags that /ould indi/ate danger 1hen shopping (or a 6rand. !he list a6o-e goes o-er some things that in/rease a produ/ts Huality. !hey are similar and o6-iously i( a produ/t doesnDt ha-e any red (lags? than this 1ould in/rease the Huality.

I( the produ/t la6eling has misspellings or grammar on it is a red (lag. I( the /ompany is not /are(ul 1ith the la6el? do you thin" they are /are(ul 1ith manu(a/turing o( the produ/t$

• •

I( the produ/t has /laims that ;ust seem too good to 6e true. Su/h as losing 1eight 6y s1allo1ing a pill is ;ust another 1arning sign.

I( the produ/t doesnDt ha-e an air tight seal or i( itDs 6ro"en than that is not good and you shouldnEt pur/hase it.
