Myths About Supplements

Next » « Previous


It is a myth to think that:

  • Supplements can diagnose, cure, mitigate, treat or prevent a disease.
  • Because a supplement is natural, it is safe. Cyanide is also natural.
  • Long term use means that a supplement is effective.
  • The effect from taking a supplement will always be the same. The effect is unpredictable. 
  • Herbs and other Botanical supplements are unrefined pharmaceuticals. They aren't. There is no mandated consistency in the way any supplement is made. A supplement from a plant grown in one condition may have different properties than a supplement from a plant grown in a different condition or soil.
