Since "Building Awareness" should be a top priority in life . . . remember without our health, we have nothing . . . today we're going to talk about our Supplements!
So the question is . . . How do your supplements rate? Compliant or not?
We're all doing our best to be knowledgeable about our health these days - BUT - today let's dig a little deeper and focus on what we're actually putting into our bodies. Let's use "Probiotics" because that topic is fresh on our minds since I just posted a Health Tip about them.
This time . . . instead of talking about the actual strains of probiotics themselves, let's talk about the "other Ingredients" in these products.
Did you know that when we look at the label on "any" product (not just supplements), most of us just look at the "Supplement Facts" or "Nutritional Facts". You know . . . how many milligrams something is or how many calories, sodium, fat, cholesterol, etc. are in the product you want to eat. And most of the time, the supplement or the product we are purchasing is "compliant" to eat or take because we know what to look for.
But . . . looks can be deceiving. You've just played right into the manufacturers hands. They have you thinking you did good! The media and conventional medicine only educates us on what they want us to know. And we are taught to be concerned about what's in the "Supplement Facts" and/or "Nutritional Fact's" . . . and rightly so. These are important factors!
But even though you have chosen a good, compliant product . . . is it really good for us.?
That's where we need to start looking at the "Other Ingredients" part of the label. This is where this good, compliant supplement or food product becomes "NON-Compliant" and devastating to our health!!!
For example . . . I'll use a probiotic that's on the market today that's one of the biggest sellers on the shelf. (Sorry I can't say the name) but if you were to read the "Other Ingredient" list, this is what you would find . . .
This product contains:
Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose which is made "chemically" through modification of cellulose, used as "plastic"
Microcrystalline cellulose is refined "wood pulp" used as a caking agent. Where does it say ingesting a tree is a good thing? Can our body even digest wood pulp???
Sucrose which is the chief component of cane or beet sugar. (and sugar "feeds" the bad bacteria we're using the probiotics to try and get rid of in the first place . . . how does that make sense????? At this rate we'll never heal our intestines and digestion . . . and that's what the manufactures want. It's good for their sales!!!!!!)
Titanium dioxide is a known "CARCINOGEN" for humans!!!!! How is that right? This is a possible "cancer" agent. But manufacturers are still allowed to use it in their products!
And finally Maltodextrin is GMO highly processed corn, rice, potato starch and wheat syrup all made into sugar (again how does that make sense???) It has a high glycemic index which makes us gain weight, feel tired and "spikes blood sugar level"!!!!!! HOW IS THIS OKAY????
And MALTODEXTRIN is in EVERYTHNG!!!!!!!
So how is this product good or "Compliant" for us?????
And this is just one product . . . there are so many more ingredients that are killing us . . . all because we weren't "Aware" of what manufacturers are putting in our supplements and the food we eat!
And yes . . . I will get on my "soap box" on this one people. I'm not naming, names or pointing fingers . . . but we as the "public" are so "unaware" of what "manufacturers", "pharmaceutical companies" and our "government regulators" are doing to us. We need to "build awareness" to protect ourselves. Nothing matters in life . . . if we don't have our health!!!! Like with this Virus!
So read the "Other Ingredient" list labels . . . don't get fooled into thinking you have chosen a good product, food or supplement. Part of my service for my clients is researching the supplements and products they are taking and eating to finding a "Compliant" one that does what it's supposed to do. So if you want me to research for you . . . just let me know.
