Hundreds of millions of people consume supplements, and some experts in related (like the late Linus Pauling) and completely unrelated (like Ray Kurzweil) subjects proclaim their love and support of dietary supplements.

Despite this, in many cases supplements cannot deliver as well as natural sources, a recent investigation into the contents of herbal supplements found a substantial number contained NONE of the listed ingredients, and regulation is deeply lacking. Corporations, lobbyists, and charlatans work tireless to skew reality and convince people to fight against their own safety. Educate yourself about what you’re taking: your body and mind will thank you.
