A recent article in the Telegraph (see here) has recently reported a huge decline on the people using supplements. partly, this is to blame for the tightening of everyone purse strings, as many people see supplements as a luxury. The article also speculates that the decline is also (in part) due to skepticism about weather supplements do work.

Well I am here to tell you that they do work, well, some of them at least. This relates to my previous post “Why does cod liver oil vary in price? where I discuss the quality of supplements and the reason for their price.

Truth is more and more manufacturers are cutting corners to make a cheap supplement. After all, supplements like cod liver oil and glucosamine are well known for helping joint pains, so if they can be bought cheap and affordable, why not? Well, because they probably won’t work, and so skepticism of the effectiveness is born.People need to stop thinking every cod liver oil supplement is the same, or that every multivitamin is just as good for you. They are over simplified views of how the body works, but you can be forgiven. Many supplement manufacturers will not give you any information on the production on a product.So in short, supplements DO work, but pick the right one. I am not saying this because I own Health Cloud, but because I know it is true. I would not have gotten into the supplement business if it was not.
