Avoid proprietary blends!
If you really want to ensure you really get what you’re paying for, avoid proprietary blends. In most cases of proprietary blends, it is impossible to know the dosages of ingredient in the product, and more times than not, they’re underdosed therefore offering minimal or no benefit to you.
Read the product reviews
The best way to quickly find out if the product is doing what it should is from honest customer reviews.
It’s not just about what’s in the blend, the dosages need to be right and the ingredients need to work together for optimal nutrient uptake and efficiency
Companies list their ingredients in order of the highest to the lowest dose. A quick search of the first couple of ingredients will usually tell you a lot about an ingredient from correct dosing to whether it requires a pairing ingredient to assist absorption efficiency. i.e. The Green Coffee Bean in HydroxyBurn Shred Ultra assists with the uptake of ALCAR.
Does the company batch test? Batch testing isn’t just for the benefit of athletes! It ensures the protection of ALL consumers
These tests report on an array of important information about purity, prohibited substances, and guarantee you’re getting what the product says (and nothing extra). Want to know if its batch tested? The company’s website will tell you if it is
Do you trust the brand?
It seems like a minor one, I know, but brand reputability indirectly tells you a lot about their products too, from quality to fit-for-purpose.
