A study in the Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association found that only 2.5% of commonly available nutritional products were both nontoxic and effective. In other words, 97.5% of supplements they studied were either toxic and/or ineffective.
Cheap fillers, additives and excipients in your supplements may hinder nutrient absorption and be immune suppressive!
Do your supplements contain?
Cellulose Starch–starch made from plant material that is used as filler, binder. Starches processed from corn contain free glutamate (MSG) which occurs as a result of processing. MSG is a known neurotoxin
Di-calcium Phosphate–used as a tableting aid, filler or bulking agent. Phosphates can induce the same symptoms as MSG in those who are extremely sensitive to MSG
Magnesium Stearate– can be made from animal or vegetable sources, a cheap flowing & lubricating agent, its insoluble in water & may hinder the absorption of nutrients. Research shows it to be immune compromising
Maltodextrin–refined sugar obtained by the hydrolysis of cornstarch. It is used for flavor, as a texturizer & bulking agent. It may contain free glutamate (MSG)
Silicon Dioxide– used as an absorbant & a cheap flowing agent (common sand), it may hinder digestion or the uptake of other nutrients, and deplete HCL (hydrochloric acid)
Stearates–Hydrogenated fats used in the production of most supplements, decrease absorption & may be toxic and immunosuppressive
Titanium Dioxide– often used in supplements as a whitening agent, is a pro-oxidant, liver toxic
Look for nutritional supplements that are made from “once-living” sources which have been grown in fertile soil without toxic tag-alongs (synthetic fertilizers), stored & packaged in a toxic free, protective environment.
