Are Your Supplements Safe?

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Did you know that more than half of American adults use dietary supplements?

And why wouldn't they? In a fast-paced society where supplementation becomes essential to maintain good health, supplements offer benefits that would otherwise be lost due poor diets. Or do they? 

Did you know that in the past four years one in two inspections by the FDA have turned up significant manufacturing practice violations for supplements? This startling statistic just so happens to be the highest rate of any FDA regulated industry for non-compliance.

In addition, in 2012 84 illegal products, such as energy and muscle gain products, were found to contain dangerous ingredients, including steroids, stimulants and hormones. All tested products were easily obtained from online and retail stores. 

Perhaps the most frightening aspect of this study, is that such ingredients were not even listed on the product label. You can view the article here, or check out the infographic by clicking here.


NSF Certification = True Indicator of Quality & Compliance

Synergy WorldWide, in partnership with Nature's Sunshine Products, invests a significant amount of money and resources in the quality guarantee of its products.

In the article where this information was extracted, it points out the importance of being NSF certified - stating that supplements manufactured in an NSF certified environment are safer supplements.

In 2010, Synergy received this crucial certification, thus further demonstrating our commitment to quality.
