What are the benefits of dietary supplements and are they safe to use?
Click here for answers by the National Institute of Health. Two out of three U.S. adults use dietary supplements to improve or maintain overall health.
Why are some supplements not “All Natural”?
Some ingredients (like Vitamin E in our Beauty Formula) are more readily synthesized, i.e., made artificially. Most dietary supplements in the market use synthetic ingredients chemically equivalent to their natural counterparts.
Life is chemical! Our bodies are bags of chemicals. All the natural foods we eat are inherently chemical. The synthetic version of a natural nutrient is the same as the natural nutrient when it is chemically equivalent to the natural version.
Finally, “natural” does not always mean safer or better. Natural ingredients can have adverse side effects ranging in severity depending on use.
In choosing dietary supplement brands, what is the top consideration?
Knowing what you are putting in your body, i.e., purity and composition. Purity means you are only consuming the intended ingredients. Composition means you are getting the intended amounts of nutrients.
The only way to verify purity and composition of a supplement is a Certificate of Analysis (CoA) by an independent lab. Of brands that provide a CoA, look to see if the CoA is per manufactured lot or not. We provide a CoA for each manufactured lot, which is the best assurance.
What is CBD?
CBD (cannabidiol) is a chemical constituent of cannabis sativa; it does not contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the psychoactive chemical in marijuana. In other words, CBD does not provide a high.
For use, CBD is infused into various products or used as oil.
