If you are skeptical about supplements, then this article is for you
With different types of supplements and therapies available in the market, more and more customers are having a hard time choosing the right supplements for their unique health problems. And with different platforms on the internet for consumers to discuss the therapies that they tried or know somebody has tried, consumers might easily fall on to some misconceptions about liver supplements.
1. They are not safe
When you search for supplements on the internet, it is not surprising to find hundreds or thousands of products with the word “safe”. The issue with the safety of supplements is that most products often claim themselves as safe but with little or no proofs. In fact, there are products on the market that don’t just claim themselves as safe, but they are proven safe. For consumers, they have to be able to check the proofs of safety.
What to do instead: Check if the product is registered. Although in some countries, registration is not required for supplements. Customers can also check if the product has passed any kind of basic safety tests such as heavy metal test, residual pesticide test, and microbial test. Look for these safety certificates to be sure.
2. Their high price is to scam people
While it is understandable that consumers have to be wary of supplements that cost a little more than usual, it doesn’t always mean that therapies that cost a bit higher are scams.
What to do instead: In fact, try to check if the product has any research or registered patent, since extensive research conducted during the development stage could be an expensive investment, which would affect the price of the supplement indirectly.
3. They are not as effective as they claim
With so many different kinds of products on the market that claim they are effective, it is not surprising to find that the consumers might be a bit careful when it comes to believing the claims that the companies make.
What to do instead: Search for genuine consumer’s reviews, for example, Facebook page reviews, as you can contact the reviewers directly concerning the product that you are interested in. Thus the reviews are less likely to be fake. Also, look if there is any research data on the effectiveness of the products, and check if the researches are listed on trustworthy websites.
