I’ve recently seen a lot of negative press about supplements in the news. Are your supplements safe?
Yes! We carry the Poliquin Group supplement line. This supplement line is absolutely safe. They’re NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) certified and exceed the FDA’s GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) guidelines. (Read more about quality assurance.)
The independent laboratories Poliquin Group uses for third party testing are audited and verified to make sure that validated analytical methods and ethical lab practices for raw material and finished product testing are followed.
Unlike other brands, what it says on the label of a Poliquin Group supplement is exactly what you get! We understand how important it is to know what you are putting into your body, and that is why in addition to their safety testing, their products are also tested for label claim potency.
The short answer is, yes. Because of current agricultural practices soil has become deficient in basic vitamins and minerals and, as the saying goes, you are what you eat and you are what you eat ate!
The refined flours and oils and canned and fried foods that make up many American’s diets do not contain enough vitamins and minerals to even meet the RDAs (Recommended Daily Allowances). Fruits and vegetables, which most people don’t consume enough of already, lose many vitamins on their trek from farm to table and are lacking in minerals because of over-farming.
The RDAs were not established to help achieve optimal health. They are merely the amount of nutrients necessary to prevent a deficiency plus a safety factor of two or three. To put it simply, the RDAs were never designed to achieve optimal health and performance. RDAs are minimum wage nutrition.
Those who exercise regularly have a much higher need for supplemental vitamins and minerals to replenish what’s lost during exercise and ensure their body’s are functioning optimally at the cellular level.
