Buyer’s Guide to Good Supplements – Part 1

September 21, 2021

One of the most common questions we get is about the difference between our supplements and supplements found in regular grocery stores and health food stores. Many people believe that all supplements are created equal, but that isn't the case. In this week's episode we invited back a special guest, Casey, who represents one of our manufacturers to discuss why the supplements we purchase are very different from what you find in regular stores. In Buyer's Guide to Good Supplements - Part 1 we discussed how most fish oils on store shelves are rancid, the difference between tablets and capsules, and why the minerals you supplement with need to be chelated.

Products Mentioned in Today's Show

Omega Supreme - Omega Supreme provides 820 mg of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) as well as 50 mg of docosapentaemoic acid (DPA) per soft gel as natural triglycerides, the preferred form with superior absorption. Vitamin E (as mixed tocopherols) and rosemary extract are used to ensure maximum purity and freshness.

Zinc Max - Zinc Max provides 54 mg of highly-absorbed zinc, ideally formulated using the amino acid chelate form of zinc (zinc glycinate) for enhanced absorption, optimal utilization and gastrointestinal comfort. Supplementing the right form of zinc is key to maintaining healthy levels within the body and compliance to a supplement regimen.
