A little while ago there were reports of a study on aspirin…
It found that taking an aspirin every day could cut your risk of developing cancer.
I’m not here to agree or disagree with those findings…
But what’s interesting is that the study was funded and authored by people which had connections with pharmaceutical companies who, amongst other things, sold aspirin.
Just one week after the study results were published it was shown that the sales of aspirin had increased by 10 times!
This is often the problem with many of these studies - they arefinanced by the people who have the funds available…
…and the people with the big funds are the pharmaceutical companies.
That means that the studies we hear about are the ones that financially benefit them.
Health Supplement Studies - Who benefits?
Who benefits (financially) from a study that shows the powers of things such as turmeric and probiotics?
And so these studies don’t get the millions needed for funding.
You might think that supplement companies, such as ourselves, would benefit, but in reality that’s not the case.
We can’t put a patent on things like turmeric or probiotics.
Whereas most pharmaceutical products are sold by one or small handful of companies (who then profit hugely from the studies), supplements aren’t the same and can basically be sold by anyone.
What Supplement Studies Exist?
Even though its rare, some studies into supplements have been done and there are allowable health claims for some products.
Advanced Magnesium - we can say this helps muscle function, supports a reduction in tiredness and fatigue, and supports bone and teeth health (amongst other things).
Our fantastic Advanced Multi too has many allowable health claims because of the range of vitamins it includes so can help support the immune system reduce tiredness / fatigue, and support bone health, for example.
But there’s very little we are allowed to say about our Advanced Turmeric, for example, despite the amazing reviews we have from our customers (and even with those reviews we often have to remove the mention of specific health conditions).
That said, the vitamin C in it amongst other things, contributes towards collagen formation for the normal function of bones and cartilage.
It’s a similar story with our Advanced Flora (despite all the studies available on Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium), and Advanced Protection (despite all the studies into Saccharomyces Boulardii).
So it does vary, but sometimes you need to do your own research as we aren’t always allowed to share the latest studies or even our practitioner experience with you.
We will always do our best to help you as much as we can though, I promise you that.
Advanced Turmeric - Turmeric / Curcumin with Bioperine (Black Pepper)
Advanced Collagen V2 (Type I, II, III, V , X)
