In our quest to take care of our health, we can spend a fortune on supplements month after month, year after year. Have you considered how the quality of supplements can impact upon your ability to achieve optimal results? Many supplements on today’s market contain unwanted chemicals and other ‘nasty’s’ that are used to bind, fill, colour or flavour supplements. For most of us, this is the last thing we want to be ingesting when we are trying to look after our bodies!
In store, the purity of our supplements is so important for us and our customers. We are proud to stock only natural and organic supplements which are in capsule form, not tablets, meaning they are of upmost quality to support the health requirements of customers.
The most common additives in supplements to watch out for are artificial flavours, colours, preservatives and anti-caking agents. They are generally cheaper than natural alternatives and therefore a tempting choice for manufacturers. Many of these additives have only been introduced in recent years and much of the evidence on their impact on our bodies is incomplete or inconclusive. There has been links to multiple health issues – the links between some artificial colourants and hyperactivity in children are widely acknowledged and the impacts that sweeteners can have on our gut bacteria is also an area being heavily researched.
There is a lack of scientific data to ensure our long-term safety of such additives, so why take the risk? This seems especially pertinent given the cocktail of chemicals we ingest from food, drugs, pollutions, cleaning equipment, microplastics; as well as those we slather, wash with and spray over our body, hair, nails. In our opinion, the one place you should not find extra chemicals is in your health supplements!
