Garbage Supplements in 2015 -Roger Mason

Let's look at the nutritional supplement garbage that is being currently sold (in no particular order). 90% of the natural health industry, unfortunately, is made up of whores, liars, thieves, criminals, charlatans, and psychopaths, to put it politely. These people actually FABRICATE supplements that have no value. They then put out lots of stories and publicity behind them, so the public believes it. It's always about money of course. They make used car dealers look good.

RESVERATROL is still the biggest scam going. Instead of feeding grape skins to pigs, they are now being sold to people at high prices. There is no science at all behind this, but there is endless advertising. The claims get more outrageous every year. Worthless.

UBIQUINOL is junk. It is unstable and has no shelf life. No, there is just no way to stabilize it. Real Japanese coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) costs about $800 a kilogram, and   you need at least 100 mg a day. Skin creams or toothpaste need at least 0.5% or more- clearly stated on the label. Ubiquinol is not CoQ10, is unstable, has no shelf life, and no reputable company will sell it. All those newsletter doctors are crooks.

CHONDROITIN is another massive scam. Chondroitin has no value, as it cannot be absorbed by the intestines. If a surgeon injects USP chondroitin into your aging joints it will have benefits, but not orally. No surgeons do this though.

ASTAXANTHIN is a minor carotenoid with no science behind it at all. Junk.

POLICOSANOL is just octacosanol in new clothes, with a new name. It will not lower your cholesterol, no matter how much you take. The "studies" are paid ads from Cuba. Please read my book Lower Cholesterol Without Drugs.

ACAI and GOJI BERRIES are more garbage. Just crap for fools sold by criminals.

GROWTH HORMONE SECRETAGOGUES don't work. Do you really think a $39.95 OTC pill is going to raise your GH? American GH costs about $1,800 a year, and must be injected. There is no such thing as oral GH or OTC GH “secretagogues”. The prescription secretagogues have all failed.

KRILL OIL (or squid oil, or hemp oil or chia oil) have low percentages of omega-3 fatty acids, are expensive, and almost never refrigerated, as it must be. Refrigerated flax oil is the real deal.  

TESTOSTERONE BOOSTERS have no value at all. Tongkat ali, Tribulus terresis, and the rest are just scams. Anyone who advocates these  should be shot in the public square. Yes, people really are that stupid to buy things like this. Read my book Testosterone Is Your Friend- A Book for Men and Women. You need transdermal or sublingual real prescription testosterone if your level is low. Or anti-aromatase hormones like ATD and Formestane.

SAW PALMETTO is still being sold for prostate health. The berries contain a mere 1 part in 3,000 of beta-sitosterol, so you'd have to eat about 3,000 capsules a day.

CHELATION, oral or injected, is a scam. Try Heavy Metal Magnet™ for six months. This is a safe seaweed extract that binds with heavy metals.

CHRYSIN doesn’t lower estrogen levels, or do anything else beneficial.

COLLOIDAL SILVER is still around. Colloidal silver does have EXTERNAL anti-septic properties, but is useless when taken internally.

MSM is still being sold by the ton. Folks, this doesn't work, never did work, and never will work. Please read our free article, Bone Health.

LYCOPENE is useless, as proven by published blood serum studies in tens of thousands of men. Anyone who sells you lycopene is a liar, a fool, or both. Read the article in our library on lycopene. Another massive scam.  The "studies" are just paid ads.

ORAL SOD is worthless and comes from melons!!! You would have to inject or use a nasal spray with read superoxide dismutase. Neither are available. Real SOD is expensive, and stated in PIU (pyrogallol inhibition units), not mg, IU, or any other way.

MODIFIED CITRUS PECTIN is a real laugh. Regular old cheap citrus pectin is very effective, as is apple pectin. You sure don't need to "modify" a soluble fruit pectin. More crooks selling pectin at extortionate prices.

HYALURONIC ACID taken orally is broken down in the stomach. Useless. The topical creams don’t do anything but hydrate the skin. That’s why we don’t sell one.

SPIRULINA
and CHORELLA are more laughs. These algaes have been around for three decades, and people are still buying them. Not one single valid published study.    

GREEN COFFEE BEAN extract is more Dr. Oz junk. Just caffeine and toxins.

COLLOIDAL MINERALS just won't die either. This is just clay extract without any minerals in it. All Your Minerals® has 20 elements in the amounts you need.


BEE PRODUCTS have been around since Abe Lincoln ran the country. If it comes from a bee, don't buy it. Bee pollen, bee propolis, bee jelly, bee whatever...

MACA ROOT is a barely edible turnip fed to livestock in South America. Useless. Selling it as "Peruvian ginseng" should result in a substantial prison sentence.

STEVIA is not a safe alternative to using sugar, honey, and other simple sugars. Using stevia and other sugar substitutes cause the same damage as natural sugars. Just get over your sugar addiction, and stop trying to cheat.

MUIRA PUAMA will not help your sex life or anything else.

POMEGRANATE and MANGOSTEEN products are just promotional junk.

CINNAMON overdoses for diabetes don’t work. Cinnamon is a great spice though.

WEIGHT LOSS PRODUCTS like green coffee beans and CLA are all worthless. None of them work, or obesity would be cured. Billions of dollars every year wasted on this stuff. You lose weight by making better food choices; diet, exercise, and lifestyle will keep you slim.

NATTOKINASE has no value, and no science behind it. Natto is a fine condiment, but Westerners do not like it. It is merely a fermented soy product.

7-KETO DHEA
is another scam. If you prove your DHEA level is low just take regular, plain, cheap, over-the-counter DHEA tablets.

MALE SEXUAL ENHANCEMENT
products. Any man who buys these needs psychiatric care. Do you really think you’ll regain your sexual potency by taking some $39.95 OTC pill? Good sex depends on GOOD HEALTH and good relationship. Read the Male Sexual Dysfunction article.

FEMALE SEXUAL ENHANCEMENT
products. See the above. Good health, good relationship, and good psychological and emotional balance are the keys here. Read the Female Sexual Dysfunction article. 

CMO, or cetyl myristoleate, has no value for your arthritis. Why does something like this keep selling decade after decade? How stupid are people anyway? Read the article Treating Bone & Joint Problems Naturally.

HOMEOPATHIC remedies contain no actual ingredients whatsoever. That's a scientific fact, and readily admitted to by proponents of homeopathy. These delusional fools have had over 100 years to prove their case. They have failed miserably. Little bottles of plain water at fancy prices. What a deal!

VITAMIN C MEGADOSES will make your blood acidic and ruin your health. Take no more than 250 mg of vitamin C, which is 400% of what you need. Linus Pauling was a well meaning, but very misguided, person. The road to Hell is paved with such good intentions. Overdoses of anything are harmful including oxygen, sun, food, water, fun, sex, or religion.

ARGININE
is still popular after all these years. All the “studies” are done with poor, heavily overdosed, injected rats.

RED RICE YEAST is not the way to lower your cholesterol. Read my book Lower Cholesterol Without Drugs. DIET is far more important than supplements here. This has almost disappeared in 2015 fortunately.

WHEY PROTEIN is almost always full of indigestible lactose. Whey is a waste product from cheese manufacturing. Americans already eat TWICE the protein they need in the first place. A low protein diet is proven to promote health and longevity. High protein diets ruin your kidneys and promote cancer.

MGN3 and AHCC are made up names for supplements that don’t work.

SUCRALOSE (aka Splenda®) should be banned for human or animal use. This is a halogenated toxin with chlorine. It is anything but a safe and proven alternative to regular sugars. It is not “made from sugar” at all; it is a synthetic and harmful chemical. In 2015 you see it is countless products because it is cheaper than sugar. Read your labels!!!

VITAMIN D OVERDOSES over 1,200 IU. The RDA is only 400 IU, we recommend 800 IU, and elderly sickly people could even push it to 1,200 IU. This is a fat soluble hormone (it’s not a vitamin) that is stored in the body. High doses are toxic.  

CANOLA OIL was never meant for human consumption and comes from heavily modified rapeseed plants. There are no "canola" plants. This contains toxic erucic acid. Do not use canola oil.

There are only about 20 proven permanent endogenous (in your body and/or your daily food) supplements recommended in my books. They include beta glucan, CoQ10, beta-sitosterol, lipoic acid, NAC, PS, ALC, vitamin D, vitamin E, beta carotene, a complete vitamin and mineral supplement, flax oil, acidophilus, carnosine, FOS, quercetin, soy isoflavones, DIM, glutamine, and glucosamine.

If you are over the age of 40, you'd do well to take all of them. This is in addition to the hormones you would need personally. If you are under 40, there are only about 8 you should take. Please read the article Supplements forYounger People. We offer a convenient pack of all eight supplements for those under 40. Vitamins, minerals, FOS, acidophilus, beta glucan, vitamin D, and vitamin E, and flax oil. We offer a pack of  20 supplements over 40 as well.  Please read my booklet The Supplements You Need and the article Serious Supplement Program. For hormones read the article Balance your Hormones.
