Don't believe what you read, believe what you eat. With the increasing popularity of dietary supplements for health and athletic performance, new sports nutrition supplement manufacturers and suppliers start up constantly. These sports nutrition diet supplements are not regulated and often do not contain the amount of product listed on the labels. Purity can be an added concern. Buy from established sports nutrition companies, and don't just go for the cheapest--it's not always the best.
This post is very true. When purchasing supplements make sure to purchase from large reputable companies. These are the companies that spend additional dollars to do third party quality control testing, operate in regulated quality manufacturing facilities and use only purity tested ingredients. Yes you will have to pay a little more for these products, but in the end it is your health and you will be happy you did.
If you don't know what companies do all these tests and only manufacture in certain quality control facilities ask your health store. If they don't know the answer find someone who does. Your health and fitness goals are too important to take a chance on a store that is not educated in that area.
