A good question and one you want to know the answer because it is a fact that you need supplements in today’s world.
If you want to be healthy, that is.
It is simply impossible to get all your nutrition needs from diet alone.
The modern food stream is just too crappy, to be blunt.
A healthy diet is one that supplies all your essential vitamins and minerals so your body can function properly.
Well, it depends. The perfectly vague answer.
Of course it depends. You are unique.
Who are you? Your genetics will factor in.
You see, it depends on a lot of stuff.
Do you ask a company that makes them?
Would you ask a person who makes their living from selling them?
Let’s say you are going to buy a truck and are considering a Ford F-150 or a Chevy Silverado 1500.
Will you go ask the Ford dealer which one is best?
I don’t this so. There is obvious bias there. Not necessarily deceit but certainly bias. Ford guys like Fords better.
So what will you do to make a thoughtful decision?
Of course you drive the trucks and compare features but you’ll probably look them up on Consumer Reports. And maybe Blue Book too. Because you want to know reliability information and cost of ownership and safety stuff.
And you can only get that from an independent source.
You are on your own in this world.
The institutions you would like to trust cannot be trusted. It’s just true. Too bad for sure but unfortunately, true.
Take a look at this video.
This is the MIT elitist jack-off who brags about how smart he is for fooling the stupid american voter into believing Obama Care is not a giant transfer of wealth from one group of people to another. And in the end (if you are insured by it) you will still have to pay more for it.
This is the epitome of deceit. When I first saw this, it hit me like a ton of bricks.
I am not making a political statement here. It doesn’t matter whether you believe Obama Care is a good thing or not so good. You must realize that this is the way the world works. Too bad for sure but you must live in reality.
There are guys just like this all through government and business telling you what you want to hear.
They’ll tell you what to eat, what to drive, what kind of energy to consume, how to exercise and just what is best for you. Cause they think know better.
But they don’t know better.
This was the recommendation out of the government for decades until it recently changed to the My Plate theme. (Which is the same information but in good government form, harder to figure out what they are saying.)
But the point is this.
And probably sick.
They don’t know shit about good nutrition.
The truth doesn’t matter in this world. Except between the few who value honesty and integrity.
It’s all about power and profit in the bureaucracies of government and business.
You have to be careful who you listen to. You must find your own answers.
If you want to know the best supplements for men, better find an independent source of information.
And that means someone who isn’t making money by selling supplements.
Examine is the best source of unbiased supplement information I have found.
Not only can you determine what are the best supplements for you and your unique situation, but you’ll find out which ones are a complete scam.
Like Garcinia Cambogia (Malabar Tamarind).
This is widely sold as a wonder drug for weight loss. Hope you haven’t wasted money on it.
What is it anyway?
It is a small fruit that has some traditional usage for flavoring foods but beyond that, has limited medicinal usage. There are no (zero) statistically significant studies that prove it has any effect on weight loss in humans.
You can learn this quickly by looking it up on Examine.
But if you keep your head in the sand, sticking with the hype from the hucksters, you’re likely convinced this stuff will magically shred your belly fat.
And they’ll all tell you it is proven by this study or that one. So what gives?
If you take the time to look up the study and then interpret it’s scientific mumbo jumbo, you might find the study was done using mice, not humans.
Or worms for Christ sake.
Or even fruit flies. You think fruit flies tell you anything about how it will work in humans.
And my personal favorite, just cells in a petri dish.
If you want to know someones true motivation, better understand their compensation system.
Supplement companies make money by selling you stuff. They really don’t care if it solves your problem.
Because they know a dirty little secret that you don’t.
And this is why.
You desperately want to lose weight. So what do you do?
Well you will typically do a bunch of things together like:
You probably will lose some weight as a result.
At least for awhile.
But you have no idea why.
Maybe the Garcinia Cambogia worked you think? So you do your friends a disservice by telling them it worked for you.
And then they buy it. It’s the blind leading the blind.
You need an objective source of information.
A good question. And the answer is simple.
I like being able to check out the latest buzz very quickly. If a self proclaimed web expert is touting a supplement I haven’t heard of, I go to my Supplement Guides and see what they say.
If the data is inconclusive or non-existent to support the claims, I mentally put this expert in the BS bucket.
It really helps to cull the field because I’m always searching for people who can teach me something.
Examine has specific guides for the following purposes.
Within each guide there are four primary sections:
