What to Look For In Selecting A High Quality Nutritional Supplement!


Have you ever purchased something thinking you had bought a really good product only to later find out that you could have had a better product for the same money? I know I have. And our friend Henry is shortly about to discover this sick feeling for himself in a very personal way. You see, Henry had never seen the information contained in this report.

Your good health is far to precious to entrust solely to doctors. --- But how much is your health worth to you? Each of us everyday by our actions, rather we realize it or not, places a value on our own health. To some it is like diamonds or gold, to others it is often treated as so much rubbish. But each of us to a large degree has the ability to determine his or her own health. - Both good and bad.

By being concerned about your health and taking appropriate steps, shows you are analogous to a smart investor. This Free report will not only make you a smarter investor in your health, but will show you that you can get the very best products and end up spending the same or less than the very worse nutritional products.

It has been said that a truly smart investor knows what he is investing in, before investing a dime of his money. This is why the rich get richer. No one would knowingly invest in a poor performing stock or investment which is going to lose money. Yet many people do this everyday when they purchase a poor quality nutritional product and don't even give it a second thought. It is not that they are stupid, it is just that no one has shown them anything different.

This report is intended to help you better invest in the health solutions that make your life richer.

The rich simply have an abundance of information and knowledge which allows them to manage risk and consistently come out on top. The rich consider investing without enough of the right kind of information akin to extremely risky behavior or even gambling.

Of course your health is much more important than money. When you are investing in any nutritional product you are essentially investing in your health (either good or bad).

Mainly due to the lack of proper information, the majority of people don't make wise decisions in regards to nutrition and their health. These people are living at risk. However, there are always the few truly smart people who are able to sort through all of the rhetoric and risky health products. These are the people who make the best health decisions for themselves and their families because they have essentially "insider" information other people don't have.

There are huge differences in the quality and effectiveness of nutritional products. However, the majority of people still think that a vitamin is a vitamin is a vitamin. However, his mindset is slowly changing.

Impatience is the downfall of so many of us.

This is why it is important not to give up too early on the best nutritional products. The best nutritional products "always work" - but most people don't understand how they work and most people give up too soon - not giving them a chance to work.

You see the very best nutritional products contain:

the best antioxidants

the best herbs

the best minerals

the best enzymes

the best vitamins and the best of everything.

For example the best antioxidant products always remove more free radicals than the cheaper products. This helps better protect your body from disease and aging.

The very best nutritional products are much more highly absorbable than cheap products delivering many more precious nutrients to your body. You see the mis-conception most people have about nutritional products is they read the label and the cheap product says for example 500 mg Vitamin C, 500 Mg Calcium. Then they read the label of the high quality and it says essentially the same thing.

Except here is the big difference - with the cheap product your body in some cases only absorbs 5-10 percent of the nutrients. While in the high quality product your body can easily absorb 5 -10 times or even more of these valuable nutrients.

This is because manufactures are only required to put on the label what they put in the product before manufacture. This can be a far cry from how much your body absorbs of the final product. The high quality products are formulated so your body absorbs a much higher amount of the actual product.

Here are the characteristics that only the highest quality products employ during development.

First let me share with you a little bit about the nutrition and herbal industry as a whole.

Raw Materials

First of all did you know that they are huge differences in the quality of herbal raw materials. There can be big differences in the amount of active ingredients based upon where the plant was grown, the seed used for growing, what part of the plant is being used, how the plant was harvested, when it was harvested, and even how the plant was stored. Plus some batches can have many more contaminants and impurities than others.

Raw ingredients especially herbals should be stored in low humidity and a low temperature environment and yet many aren't stored properly.

Of course a good product starts with strict inspection processes of the raw materials.

Raw materials are screened, inspected and even quarantined to assure they meet optimal standards.

Any tablets and capsules go through strict sizing and weight requirements.

Also a good quality capsule, tablet supplement will contain a coating for ease of swallowing and this coating will typically contain a high quality antioxidant like alpha-lipoic acid to help protect the tablet against oxidation and loss of potency.

The Product Testing Phase

High quality nutrition supplements will undergo a Battery of Tests like:

Disintegration Testing - tests to insure tablet will disintegrate under conditions found in the human body

Dissolution Testing - tests to insure tablet will dissolve in order to be absorbed and utilized by the body.

Microbiological Analysis - tests to insure absence of harmful bacteria, yeast, and mold.

Potency Analysis - tests using sophisticated laboratory equipment like Spectrometry, Chromatography and Spectroscopy.

Content Uniformity Analysis - In this test samples are analyzed to make sure that they contain the same levels of active ingredients.

Also with high quality supplements the manufacturer pays great attention to packaging to assure it protects the valuable active ingredients.

So you now have a basic idea of what to look for in a super high quality nutritional supplement.
