The biggest mistake that people make by taking vitamins is that most people don’t think twice about picking up their vitamins at a local discount store or their local grocery store. Dr. Steve Chaney, is a professor of Nutrition, Biochemistry and Biophysiolgy at the Univerity of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.
He says that,
“One of the biggest mistakes people make is taking inexpensive vitamins. NEVER (emphasis is Dr. Chaney’s!) buy mail-order vitamins or supermarket/pharmacy brands without checking them out first.
Cut-rate products often contain certain additives, food allergens, sugar, artificial food coloring and flavoring. Many are coated with shellac or contain potentially hazardous chemicals like chlorine.”
Shaklee perform up to 176 separate tests for purity, freshness, potency, and safety on the raw ingredients for a single product. Products undergo as many as 262 separate quality assurance tests throughout the manufacturing process as well. In addition, all product label claims have documented substantiation.”
Sometimes we need to stop and evaluate the reason we are taking vitamins. If it for health then one needs to make sure that the supplements have had quality tests for raw materials and performance. Shaklee has spent over 300 million dollars on testing their product and has over 96 publishd clinical studies unlike their competition.
