Do you know what’s in your supplements?

Supplements like vitamins, minerals, probiotics, and others are not regulated by the FDA. When you buy a multivitamin at the grocery store or even the vitamin store, do you know what you are actually getting? Not unless you have done your homework. There are a few independent companies that test these supplements to determine which ones actually contain what they say they do. Unfortunately, many of the reports are pretty alarming.

Recent studies done by one of these independent testers found that two out of the thirteen vitamin E supplements that were tested did not have the amount they claimed on the bottle. One of the vitamin D supplements that was tested had less than one third of the amount that was claimed on the bottle. So if you don’t know what’s really in your supplements you may just be wasting your money. What’s worse than that? Some of the supplements actually contain more than what is claimed on the bottle, which can put your intake above the upper limit and put you at risk for nausea, vomiting, kidney stones, or even hemorrhages. Some supplements even contain dangerous levels of heavy metals like lead and mercury. Remember the FDA does not regulate these supplements!

What can you do to make sure you’re getting what you think you’re getting? Purchase your supplements from someone who knows the industry and is current on the latest research, or find a company who volunteers for rigorous testing like those that undergo the procedures of Good Manufacturing Practices. At Kauffman Chiropractic we take good nutrition seriously and only offer supplements of the highest grade, so you’re assured to get what you pay for, nothing more, nothing less.
