Garbage Supplements in 2021 -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. Don’t forget the fake “studies”. It's always about money of course. They make used car dealers look good.
RESVERATROL is still an ongoing scam after all these years. 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.
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 $500 a kilogram, and you need at least 100 mg a day. Skin creams or toothpaste need at least 0.5% 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. Read our article CoQ10 Frauds. “Trans CoQ10” (ubiquinol) is the latest fraud.
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.
PQQ (pyrroloquinoline) is more garbage sold by the likes of Life Extension and Suzanne Somers. The “studies” are meaningless cell tests.
COCONUT OIL- This is a saturated fat, and not a good choice at all even for cooking.
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. It has almost disappeared.
KOMBUCHA MUSHROOMS just won't go away. Useless. You see this crap in almost every natural food store in the cold drink section. Shows how stupid people are.
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”. Even the prescription secretagogues like Hexarelin have all failed. SeroVital® is still on TV!!!
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. (Read the article Flax Oil is Amazing.)
JELLYFISH FOR ALZHEIMER'S is on TV all the time. Prevajunk has no value at all, but makes scientific claims to prevent Alzheimer's and cognitive decline. Use PS and pregnenolone, and avoid all sweets and sugars.
CHRYSIN doesn’t lower estrogen levels, or do anything else beneficial.
COLLOIDAL SILVER has almost disappeared. Colloidal silver does have EXTERNAL antiseptic properties, but is useless when taken internally.
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 inexpensive pectin at extortionate prices. Anything for money.
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.
NAD+ hit in 2018. Pseudo science. Worthless. Fake studies behind it. Also NMN.
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...
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. Read the Sugar is Sugar article.
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.
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.
ORAL B-12 cyanocobalamin cannot use taken orally. You must use 1 mg of methyl cobalamin. This is what we put in All Your Vitamins®.
R-ONLY LIPOIC ACID is a joke. All the studies use reglar R,L lipoic acid.
5-HTP worthless hydroxytryptophan is still around.
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.
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 2020 you see it is countless products because it is cheaper than sugar. Read your labels!!!
MIRACLE MINERAL SUPPLEMENT (or SOLUTION) is liquid wood bleach!!! Seriously, it is a weak solution of wood bleach. Humble is a criminal.

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.

Vitamins, minerals, FOS, acidophilus, beta glucan, vitamin D, and vitamin E, and flax oil. We offer a pack of 18 supplements over 40 as well.
