Buying vitamins can be confusing. With countless brands, claims, dosages, and price points, how do you know who to trust?
It’s easy to be deceived by slick-looking bottles or cheap price tags — but the FDA does not regulate the vitamin industry, so many big-name vitamin brands use ingredients like mercury that can actually be harmful.
Don’t waste any more money on mediocre vitamins. Read on to learn how to choose the best ones for your body.
What are the pitfalls of buying vitamins on Amazon?
Amazon is the wild wild west when it comes to vitamin quality. You won’t get any guidance to find the best vitamins in the right dosages.
More worryingly is that you can’t screen vitamins for interactions with medications you might be taking.
Buying vitamins on Amazon only makes sense if you know exactly what you need, and can be sure that you don’t run the risk of any negative interactions.
Are multivitamins good for you?
There is no conclusive evidence to support that a multivitamin is as effective as a properly dosed single vitamin. If we were all alike, then it would make sense for us to all take the same vitamins everyday — but we aren’t.
Multivitamins are often made with low-quality ingredients in ineffective or excessive dosages. Our bodies can only absorb a certain amount of vitamins in a day, meaning a one-size-fits-all approach to dosage just doesn’t cut it. Many manufacturers also add additives and synthetic fillers in order to prolong shelf life at the detriment of your wellbeing.
The rise of personalized vitamin brands
Personalized nutrition is the new hot topic in the health and wellness industry. While this approach of taking tailor-made vitamins aligned with your nutrient gaps and health goals is sound, most brands aren’t taking a holistic approach.
Most personalized vitamin brands take an algorithm-only based approach, meaning they don’t include any human interaction as part of their vitamin plans. Once your vitamins are shipped out to you, you are on your own. By not tracking your progress with a professional, or complementing your vitamin plan with lifestyle changes — you can’t reap the full benefits of your new routine.
