The Wall Street Journal released an article some time ago that brought light concerns surrounding the supplement industry. I advocate the use of supplements in conjunction with a balanced, wholesome diet and fitness program/regime. I have found particular supplements to be of vital aid in my client's success. And as a responsible professional, I always try to play an active role in keeping my clients educated on the effects and uses of supplements. Truth in labeling is expected; however, it is not required of any supplement company to provide evidence until it becomes an issue for the FDA.
The article highlighted a study that found two illegal and two unknown substances in commercially available products. Thankfully, I had never recommended, nevertheless heard of, any of these products, which was a huge relief. The question, how as a consumer/non-fitness professional, do you choose the right supplements? This concern is an issue for all supplements, even for those that stamp, all-natural, or organic on the label.
Supplements in fact can effectively fill nutritional gaps, so here are three tips that can help you eliminate chances of problems from negligent supplement companies:
If you are shopping online but are uncertain the supplement is right for you, check the Web retailer's return policy. A web retailer that also has a brick‐and‐mortar outlet near your locale may be preferable.
Having access to a professional so that important questions can get asked about supplements is always an excellent tool to support your nutritional journey. If you have any questions or are ready to start a new health journey that separates yourself from the average doer and consumer, Book your fitness consultation now!
