Supplements are big money for many companies and most of them try to keep their bottom line as low as possible. This means using substandard ingredients in their products. Many supplements come from plants and the part of the plant used impacts the quality of the end product. But instead of using only the quality part of the plant many companies use the whole plant because it’s cheaper and makes more end stage product. This results in a lower grade product.  Unfortunately America doesn’t have any quality control laws for supplements, which has been a big deal in the past few years. You can put just about anything you want in a bottle slap the word supplement on it and as long as it hasn’t been proved harmful you can sell it as whatever you want. I would recommend supplements from Canada or Australia since there are regulations and quality control laws.  At the office we do not carry a brand of supplement so I’m not trying to sales pitch you on a brand just spreading some information around.
