What is your take on health supplements?

Post by Ariana » Tue, 19 Mar 2019 4:06 pm

Hi guys, I am currently looking for health-conscious individuals or ladies who have tried detox diets.
There are so many health supplement promoting weight loss, fat-burning and detox! Brands like Skinny Mint, Skinnyfit, baetea etc. Would love to hear your thoughts and reviews on this! :roll: :roll: :roll:

not a big fan of health supplements. seems like everywhere its fake or overhyped stuff to pay a big chunk of money to put into our stomach.
just go for healthier food in our daily meals.

Agreed with Rach.
But where can we get healthier food in the market?

That's got to be one of the stupidest questions I've seen on here in quite a while. Any market that sells fresh produce. Don't eat processed foods. If it comes in a box, sealed bag, can or bottle it's processed and is full of garbage and chemicals you don't need. Buy fresh foods and cook it yourself so you know what is being put into it. Don't eat at restaurants or food stalls as you have no control what is being put into the mix. It's all common sense. If you need to put vitamins or supplements in your body, you are not eating right.

Well I believe there are some stuff you can't get off regular food, like fenugreek or some other herbs. Or even fish oil if you don't like fish. But for multi vitamins, I feel may be overrated.

All products labeled as a dietary supplement carry a Supplement Facts panel that lists the contents, amount of active ingredients per serving, and other added ingredients (like fillers, binders, and flavorings). The manufacturer suggests the serving size, but you or your health care provider might decide that a different amount is more appropriate for you.

Hi,

Most detox products and other health "packages" sold with extensive marketing and hype are completely useless. They do nothing and are just out to earn the money of unknowing newbies in this area. Your liver and kidney are your two biggest detox and waste eradicating organs.

There is no particular food/juice cleanse or some program that detoxes you. I can go on for days about the missing context in these products and the lies they tell. In short, the only thing which works long term is a good diet AND lots of the correct workouts.

Cheers.

Better to use the organic fresh foods and exercise to reduce the weight with no side effects. Detox products and other medicines to reduce the weight can be waster of time and money.

Organic is also a waste of money.
