This guy is pretty funny but simply nails things! I don't agree with some of his inappropriate language, but if you can get passed that and watch it all, it's worth it.
Most of you know that I believe in supplementing and I am, in fact, involved with a "supplement" company. I put supplement in quotes for a specific reason. I keep telling people that we are unique, which is hard for folks to really hear and understand. I get why. There are tons and tons of supplement companies out there, and many more popping up everyday! Each and everyone of them wants to be unique. Why? Because it's big money!!! In the video and what we share is that people are spending 32 billion dollars a year on supplements! So it matters!!
I had some dialog with a brand new company just the other day that is giving away free samples to introduce themselves to supplement takers. I was curious of course, so did some research only to find what we always find, one thing on the front of the label and quite another thing on the back.
Many supplement companies say they offer whole food supplements. The reason a company would want to be known as a whole food supplement company is because of the things talked about in this video. People get sick and die from supplements and no one is regulating that!!
Here's my point.....people ARE NOT getting sick and dying from "whole food" supplements, they ARE getting sick and dying from all of the other junk ADDED to food supplements!!!
Could it be that simple?!! YES, for crying out loud!! It IS that simple!! If it isn't food, it doesn't belong in our bodies!! We have gotten so far away from this principle that we no longer know how to simply eat food or to understand that if we choose to supplement our diets, it must be done with FOOD!!
I have spoken to several dozens of supplement companies (if you know me you know that is not an exaggeration) asking them to explain why their products have stuff in them that is not food. They all say the same thing, that creating truly whole food supplements is either not possible or if it were to be done they couldn't possibly be effective. Well, guess what? They are all WRONG!! It can and is being done with amazing results.
No outlandish claims here. Because guess what, when you eat food and supplement with food your body simply thanks you. I don't wanna be involved with a company that says, "take this magic pill and see all of your ailments go away". There is NO MAGIC PILL OR BEAN!!
I want to be in partnership with a company that understands and is committed to providing education and whole food formulas that assist in giving the body what it needs to function at its best.
Here's my charge to you....if your supplement label says cholecalciferol, retinyl acetate, thiamine hydrochloride, niacinamide, HCL, ascorbic acid, cyanocobalalmin or tocopheryl acetate to name a few, will you do your homework? And when you discover what this stuff really is, will you stop putting it into your body?
We have done this with our food labels and it's time to do it with our supplements, after all, we do eat them, right?
Everyone deserves "the Good Inside," and, yes, "Purity is Possible."
