Often times herbs used in supplement formulas (and even your common cooking spices) have been irradiated. What this means it that they have been zapped with radiation. This procedure is used to extend the shelf life of the product, as well as to incinerate any microbes or parasites on the herbs.
Unfortunately this zapping also fries the medicinal properties of the herb, this then severely decrease the potency and effectiveness of your healing formula.
Not to mention this 30 billion dollar supplement industry has become dangerously under-regulated and chances are you’ve probably bought a couple fraudulent products, especially if you are shopping at big box stores like Target, Walmart, Walgreens, or GMC.
An independent study conducted in New York State found that 4 out of 5 supplements tested at these 4 major retailers didn't even contain the medicinal herbs they were claiming! Instead they were filled with cheap fillers such as rice powder, random houseplants, and asparagus.
Walgreens “Ginseng” supplement was simply garlic and rice powder.
Walmart’s “Gluten-Free Ginkgo Biloba" was actually powdered radish, houseplants, and wheat— despite the fact that their label said “gluten-free.”
A few years back, USA TODAY, cracked down on about 100 “all-natural” companies that were caught selling supplements secretly spiked with pharmaceutical drugs, steroids, and even dangerous methamphetamine-like compounds.
Not all supplements are created equal, and this industry is very poorly regulated. Since we ourselves use our products, we make sure only the cleanest and purest ingredients go into these bottles!
