Your daily supplement may include ingredients you don’t know about…

As we become more health conscious, supplements are becoming a popular way to supplement our diets with the nutrients we require.In 2016, 46% of Brits reportedly took vitamins on a daily basis, with this number gradually rising each year.

However, it’s essential to know what goes into your supplements. 

Reputable UK food supplement firms continue to worry about imported products that aren’t being checked, some of which have been found to contain active pharmaceutical components.

You may not realise it, but your supplement may contain active pharmaceuticals

In the UK we have the Food Standards Agency (FSA), Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) and the Trading Standards Office, ensuring claims made about products are accurate and represent what we purchase.

But not all companies utilise these services and while the nutritional supplement market is notoriously regulated, it’s under-policed, meaning using a reputable brand you can trust is essential when using supplements.

Due diligence is important when choosing your next supplement

Be sure you’re using the most authentic supplements on the market…

Research the brand

  • Find out who owns the company and research their background.
  • Are they experts in their field?
  • Can you source their main ingredients to a reputable supplier?
  • Have there been any tests and trials ran on the product to show it works?

Does the product use independently certified products?
Ideally your product should be free from contaminants such as metals, pesticides and herbicides.

Does the product should conform to ‘GMP’ (Good Manufacturing Practice)?
Confirms that a manufacturer’s main production facilities are conforming to good practices established by their industry.

Food standard Agency
The Food standard Agency is there to help protect us

Is the product FSA (Food Standards Agency) regulated?
A necessary regulation – supplements are subject to the provisions of general food law.

Does it conform to ‘ISO’ (International Standards Organisation)?
This confirms products are safe, reliable and of good quality.

What is your supplement ‘free of?
Supplements should be free of unnecessary fillers such as colours and additives. Ideally they should be non-GMO and gluten free and also look for natural flavourings, vegan ingredients & lactose free where possible.

Is it worth risking your health on bargain brands?
In short — absolutely not! If the brand is cheap, it should make your pause before buying. What appears at first to be a bargain may be made with inferior ingredients, or more worryingly, fake.

The company could be cutting corners in order to decrease their product pricing — another cause for concern.
