At the core of this issue is the poor regulation of the supplements market which has allowed marketers to persuade consumers into believing various unproven claims and statements.

This may not only save money, but also prevent you from making rash decisions which may have negative impacts on your health.

However, if resources permit, it may be beneficial for an individual to seek the help of a local dietitian who can help develop a customized approach targeted at specific dietary goals and needs.
