Natural Supplements: How to make your selection?
When choosing a natural supplement, the form plays a primary role: capsules, tablets, powders, liquids, or microgranules.
Meanwhile, the quality of the ingredients it contains and more particularly the active ingredients are even more important.
Choose natural ingredients
First of all, ingredients should be of natural source, with no coloring agent, GMO, and preservative-free.
Look for the content of the active ingredients
Secondly, the content in a product of a specific plant or fruit doesn’t guarantee its efficiency. For most of them, what is important is the content of the active ingredients: the part of the ingredient that is active and known to have a beneficial action in the body. However active ingredients content is not constant from one plant harvest to another, i.e. 10 kgs of oranges from 2 different harvests may not contain the same content of Vitamin C (the active ingredient in oranges).
For this reason, using extracts that are titrated, gives a guarantee that the content of active ingredients will be constant from one product to the next.
In many supplement manufacturing processes, the whole dried plant is used, it is ground and often mixed with other neutral agents to form a powder. This considerably reduces the plant concentration and the percentage of active ingredients. We often find a lot of wastage, such as stems, roots, and occasionally some soil.
So what is important to remember is that a plant may be known for these properties, but it is actually a part of it that is actively providing the benefits.
