Nowadays, there are more supplements than we can keep track of. So many companies pop out of the wood work all of a sudden and claim to be the best. Like with anything, there is pure and utter marketing trash designed to rob you, and there are actually some legitimate companies trying to sell a legitimate product. The latter may seem far and few between these days, but there are actually good companies out there with a good creedo and a good product.

Many supplements you see and take are not what they seem to be. There’s alot of trickery, hoaxes, and great marketing out there today, simply designed to burn a hole in your pocket – BE AWARE!!! Before going out and just buying any old supplement, whether in a store or online, it is important to know some basics about purchasing supplements safely so you are not putting total shit in your body, and so that you are not wasting your hard-earned money!
