You should be taking your vitamins and supplements daily. There has been many studies throughout the years that show that your basic nutrients can help with everything from aging, heart problems, mood and memory. The correct product can reduce your risk of diabetes, high blood pressure and even heart disease. With that said not all supplements nor vitamins are the exact same, so it is imperative to make sure you do your own research on the products before making a buying decision. It is also important to know that when it comes to vitamins and supplements you honestly do get what you pay for. High quality products might cost more, but it is worth paying a little extra to get that quality before getting something that just won’t flat out get you the results that you desire.

Here is a supplement and vitamin buying tip guide to help you

You should watch out for products that are trendy or are a fad diet. It sure seems like a new miracle pill is born each and every month. Take the time and wait to see what others have to say about these kind of products before buying.

The next thing to watch for is fillers such as yeast, sugar, dyes, cornstarch and chemicals. You should really look at the fine print on the product label, so you don’t end up with a product that is full of fillers such as these listed above.

Most reputable companies will have a phone number or website that you can look up or call and ask questions such as this one!

Make sure you read the instructions because some products won’t work as good or they might work better when taken with a meal. One good example of this is that vitamin E works better when you take it with food.

You should also allow the supplement or vitamin time to start working because although a product such as Digestive Enzymes works rather fast others can take up to 3 month or 90 days.

Make sure to store it correctly, which at most times are in a cool and dry place. You can put them in the refrigerator or cupboards, but the kitchen counter might not be the best place for them. You should also watch for the expiration date to make sure your products are not expired.

One of the biggest problems is that people will think they are getting a great deal on supplements, which in fact the reason why they are so inexpensive is because they are not quality and could easily be full of fillers or other ingredients that are unnecessary.

When buying vitamins and supplements from big box stores such as Walmart, CVS, Walgreen’s and GNC. You have to ask them where the products are made and most times you will find that they have been produced in China or another country that doesn’t have the same standards as the USA.

Our products are made in a FDA approved lab here in America, just in case you are wondering.


  1. I just wanted to leave you a comment about this vitamin guide and just wanted to say thank you for it because I’ve been wondering, if I have been doing the right thing when buying them and I wasn’t sure if I was and turns out I’ve been buying junk from Walmart, but now I can use this to make sure I’m getting my money worth instead of just buying low cost vitamins that don’t work.
