The nutritional supplements industry has become enormous and complicated. It offers safe, effective natural remedies for innumerable health conditions, but at the same time there is a lot of hucksterism and overblown claims about medical benefits that may not be true. Worse, some nutritional supplements are prepared without safeguards or sufficient study behind them, so that poisonous contaminants and dangerous side effects are a possibility.
We believe that most supplements are safe for most people, but we all need an unbiased place where we can discuss supplements and their makers so that we can find the safest and most effective nutritional supplements.
Read Earth Clinic user advice on how to ensure supplement safety and which side effects to look out for when treating illnesses or looking to improve your overall health.
[WARNING!] For all the Morgellon sufferers out there, I just found out something important, it turns out that many of our vitamins & supplements ( even good brands ) have Magnesium Stearate in them, I myself have been taking up to 7 different supplements per day with it in them! My doctor who is baffled that I cannot get my immune system built up even though I have been on epicor for two years, suggested that I go home and check the labels on all my OTC pills because Magnesium Stearate blocks immune builders and tears down the immune system, never more than 1 pill a day should be taken with this ingredient in it.
