Internet supplements -- use extreme caution

Filed under:

Do you buy herbal vitamins and supplements over the Internet? Sure, it's very easy (and cheaper in many cases) to buy things these days via the web. But, can you really trust all that information you read in your research and what supplement sellers provide?

It's accepted science and prudent marketing that supplement and vitamin makers using disease-prevention claims cite specific and verifiable scientific studies that back up those claims -- but those studies are rarely referenced anywhere. So, you're reading what you end up believing -- with little to no shred of proof.

The old saying goes here, "question everything".
