Way too many people invest in supplements without every seeing tangible results. They don’t feel noticeably better. The condition or problem they were hoping to treat doesn’t get any better. And the consumer is left frustrated and more willing to believe that there aren’t any answers.
Jigsaw Health is devoted to destroying this cycle.
Inevitably though, customers ask why we’re able to sell products that work, when so many vitamins and supplements are ineffective. The truth is, there are a lot of reasons why most supplements don’t work (even skipping over the obvious false claims and snake-oilsmanship), and we’ve compiled a list of the top 5:
1. Less than what’s on the label
This one’s fairly simple and straightforward and, unfortunately, not all that uncommon. The product simply doesn’t contain the active ingredients in the amount claimed. Consumerlab.com routinely tests supplements and vitamins and routinely finds brands/products that contain significantly less active ingredient than the labeled amount.
2. Less than needed
Very often, scientific studies will show effectiveness for substances at relatively high doses, and supplement companies will churn out products that contain less than a tenth of that amount in their daily recommendations – often while charging a ridiculous amount for a “month’s supply.”
3. Less expensive and less absorbable forms of the active ingredients
Most consumers don’t get into the nitty-gritty details of exactly which chemical or formulation has proven efficacious; they just know and search for supplements labeled with the common name. And often, they end up they end up with less absorbable forms of the product that have been packaged in non-dissolvable tablets and pills. This is especially problematic for older consumers or those with a compromised digestive system – often the very segments targeted by supplement companies!
4. Based on selective or skewed studies
A lot of supplement companies know that if they torture the data long enough, they can get it to confess to almost anything. They’ll use questionable and biased studies. Or they’ll only cite the one aberrant study in support of their product while ignoring 20 newer, better studies that would invalidate their claims. They take studies done on non-representative (usually ageing or unhealthy) populations, and then erroneously extrapolate the results to the average person.
5. Contains heavy metals or other toxins
Health supplements should be the last place to find health-destroying toxins, but more than a few supplements contain dangerous amounts heavy metals. Probiotics and Colloidal Minerals are some of the worst offenders, but multi-vitamins and other supplements have also been found with lead and other toxins.
