There’s a reason “you get what you pay for” is an age-old adage—if it seems too good to be true, it probably is, and common sense prevails.
A cheap line of multivitamins sold on Amazon have been outed as fakes. Counterfeit products of all types are a problem on Amazon, especially when they come out of China where make-up and more could be contaminated with toxins when it’s coming to you from across the world for a dirt-cheap price.
Already, low-quality supplements tend to have cheap ingredients. The cheapest for of many nutrients is often not the easiest for your body to absorb, and third-party studies have caught major brands using all sorts of fillers, especially calcium carbonate (chalk-like)–even in supplements that don’t list calcium as an ingredient! The price might feel right, but your body won’t feel better. The prevalence of throw-away multivitamins is part of why so many studies find that supplements don’t work—most people are just getting chalk.
That’s why it’s worth it to always choose a high-quality multivitamin. Check the label, check the reviews, and set a time-limit on how long you’ll take it. Most people notice a difference when they take high-quality supplements after about a month, but some notice it right away!
Colloids for Life chooses only high-quality supplement brands (good enough we take them ourselves!). With fresh ingredients, honest labels, no fillers or preservatives, and the most easily absorbed form of nutrients you get a lot more for the price.
