Since I promote and market online...I receive proposals regularly and some are real while others are fake - it can be to promote a dietary protocol or supplement line. Because of COVID 19, products are hastened to the market / world wide web.
On social media: I see my contacts / friends sharing products and etc. Some people reach out and want my feedback and so I thought it would be easier to provide a ONE SOURCE report.
Report findings: poor quality - see quality description below.
I was associated with a research and development company for sports, fitness and health professionals. My job as a nutrition educator is to see through media hype as that can help when educating the community. I am, however, a proponent of nutraceuticals.
There's a BOSS FORMULA to everything.
Quality is important!
I examined a decent percent of supplements and tonics on the market.
That includes products promoted online as a virus cure and/or testosterone boosters.
To avoid a timely process and posting lab results - I focus on what's important when considering a supplement or whatever product.
What is important?
+ Lab testing
+ Clinical trials using 3rd party studies
+ Manufactured in pharmaceutically-licensed FDA-regulated & NSF Certified for Sport facilities following cGMPs (good manufacturing practices).
+ Multiple 3rd party tests from raw material to finished product.
The main issue?
Some supplements or products on the market...
- either does not contain whatever active ingredient and/or
- sufficient amount of that active ingredient (or component) shown to be effective
- contain fillers or toxic chemicals
