From The Archives: Are Your Supplements Safe?

Monday, August 26, 2013

 Over half of American adults use dietary supplements. In a fast-paced society where supplementation becomes essential to maintain good health, many people have realized the benefits that come from supplements that would otherwise be lost due poor diets. However, these questions remain: Are all supplements created equal? Do all of them really do good for our bodies? How can we be sure we are getting the best available supplements?

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 2012 there were more than 80 products labeled as supplements to promote energy and muscle gain that 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. To be sure you are getting quality supplements truly formulated to enhance your health, look for the NSF certification.

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