About the supplements,
I don`t know the brand vitamin shoppe but I know this, it is possible that there are to much fillers in it.
Fillers are inexpensive, inactive materials that are used in capsules and tablets. Although small amounts are necessary in the manufacturing process,many companies use excessive amounts in place of the listed active ingredients. Labels are often misleading and since fillers cost less money, people don¹t realize what they`re getting
Avoid lesser quality, for example, aminos derived from soy, milk, beef or eggs, which are not as bioavailable and effective. They also may cause allergic reactions in food sensitive individuals.
Aren't all vitamins and supplements the same? Does it really matter which brand you buy? How can you tell which supplements are the highest quality? With so many different brands and so much hype in the marketplace, we understand how difficult choosing a line of dietary supplements can be.
The truth is not all vitamins and supplements are the same. Research shows that many supplements do not contain the proper amount of essential ingredients, nor are they developed by qualified industry professionals.
Often, companies will use a “blend” of a particular nutrient instead of a concentrated form of the nutrient in order to cut costs. By combining an effective nutrient with a less expensive (and less effective) nutrient many companies increase their profits at your expense. For example, a calcium supplement may contain both calcium carbonate and calcium citrate. However, what the label doesn’t indicate is the amount of the carbonate form used relative to the amount of citrate calcium form used. The product may contain 95% of the carbonate form and only 5% of the citrate form. The carbonate form, which is must less expensive than the citrate form, is essentially nothing more than ground-up rock and is much less effective. Calcium citrate, the more effective form of calcium, is only included in minute amounts since it is more expensive.
The brands that are selling good products are, Solgar, NOW, Life extension.
