Not all supplements are created equal. Knowing what is in your dietary supplements is just as important as the supplement you take. In the news today there are scares about the safety of many dietary supplements on the store shelves especially with omega-3 fish oils; how do you avoid being caught up in the mayhem?
Recalls on fish oil supplements and other “natural” products have caused many people to stop and wonder what they are buying. The grocery and food store supplements boast low prices but what are you really getting for that lower cost? Mostly nothing at all. Seriously. The active ingredients in most are of low quality and strength or the pill’s delivery system does not allow it to dissolve in the body properly.
Calcium supplements bought in the store come out looking like they did going in; not one thing was done for your body. Supplements on those shelves do not necessarily do either what they claim or what you think they may do by virtue of their name. Vitamin E is a strong antioxidant and you expect that all vitamin E tablets and nutrition would be the same; this could be said with any specific vitamin or mineral. This is just not the case.
The truth is not all supplements are created equal. Quality control and testing are different from company to company. While there are federal and moral standards in place it seems that bad products still get through to store shelves. It seems quality control is not a major priority for most of the companies who sell these products; if they would have tested their products then they would have known of the high levels of PCBs.
It seems that in the fish-oil supplement recalls of late the manufacturer did NOT test their own products before putting them in their bottles and allowing them to be sold. This begs another question; why has the FDA, who has all the laws in place giving them the power to prevent this from happening, allowed these products to be put on the shelves to begin with?
Finding a company who prides themselves upon quality control and testing for their products is the only way to ensure that you are getting and can trust everything printed on the bottle. Companies and products with patents means that no other company can use the exact same ingredients in the exact same concentration or mixture; which means that one product could have better reliability than others that claim either the same thing or something similar.
We see this all the time with generic brands. Using some generic brands of pain relievers and other medications are just fine and as good as the name brand. When dealing with other products however, a lesser company can not possibly put in all the effective ingredients as the original, especially if that original company has a patent.
What does this mean for Shaklee users? You can be assured that what you see and read on the label is what you get. Shaklee goes to the extreme for quality control and testing, going so far as to bring in third party testing laboratories and getting patents on their products.
There is no other company that I know of that goes through so much to be so effective. This is second nature to Shaklee; inspired by the founder of the company, Dr. Shaklee, to be in harmony with nature in everything they do. What is even better yet is that they do not stop at one milestone; they keep going and have been doing so for over 50 years.
Dietary supplement safety and environmental protection are the core beliefs behind every Shaklee product. That is why unlike so many other companies, Shaklee offers a 100% money back guarantee, even after you have used all the supply of product, just return the empty bottle for a FULL refund, no questions asked. How many store brand companies can say that?
Bottom line is that you can be comfortable with every Shaklee product you bring into your home to be as effective and powerful as the bottle says. Shaklee has published in many peer reviewed journals and other publications and have been confident enough to send their products to third party testers to be sure of their results. Plus, they do not hesitate to announce it.
Good news should be spread. And Shaklee is the best news of all for those looking for a safe reputable dietary supplement among their other many outstanding products.
