In a time where health and wellness is greatly talked about, many companies try to hop on the trend and can advertise bold, unrealistic claims. Now more than ever it is important to check what you are putting into your body - supplements included!
When shopping for a supplement, look for a Certificate of Analysis (COA). These are important indicators of quality. Also, read the ingredients list just like you would any other food. In addition to the vitamin, mineral, adaptogen, or protein you are looking for, there should only be 3-4 "other" ingredients that you can also recognize.
If you are unsure where to purchase a quality supplement, I recommend designs for health. I love to work with the designs for health team because they are a company I trust. As always, check with your Doctor or Health Coach to make sure you are getting the most bioavailable form of the nutrient needed, especially when there is a documented deficiency.
