Janine: It can be hard to know what supplements are good to purchase when I go to the store. How do I know which are the best ones to buy?
Megan: Supplements have become very popular and the market is saturated with so many brands. Label reading is key. Look for extra ingredients that are fillers and additives. Look to see that the product has a USP or NSF label which means it has been tested to meet FDA standards. Also look at the expiration date and what the servings size is as well as percent of daily value.These help determine if the cost and servings are comparable to what you need. There are more reputable brands than others and asking your doctor for recommendations can help guide you.
