    Default Consumers Are Losing Trust In The Supplements Industry: We Need To Earn It Back

    M Kara MD
    September 1 2021

    Why it’s in the supplement industry’s best interest to be as transparent and truthful as possible with our ingredients, labels, and marketing claims.


    Over the last few decades, research on dietary supplement ingredients has advanced enough to remove supplements from the “pseudoscience” category and plant them firmly in the modern wellness narrative. The benefits of dietary supplements—for example, turmeric—have been professionally, cross-culturally studied and proven. Why, then, is there a growing distrust of the supplements industry?

    We get what we pay for. If the product seems to good to be true at that price, it probably should be avoided. Researching for a reputable brand name always is important, so much more so when it concerns our health.

    Good points, Maurya. Quantum Nutrition is one we like, but since COVID we have far fewer opportunities to get US supplements, as fewer and fewer of our friends and students travel there. When they do, they usually don't mind bringing some supplements back for us that we've ordered. Another newish impediment is that travelers between Brazil and the US are now allowed less baggage and weight allowance than before. Ordering direct from the US to Brazil is prohibitively expensive.

    Patty, I get free shipping to Australia from iherb if I spend $50+. That's Aus dollars. Have you checked them out? They ship to Brazil.

    Julieanne, it's not just the shipping (though I've never seen free shipping to Brazil). The equivalent of the FDA here charges a minimum of 50% in taxes/fees on supplements from other countries. It's prohibitively expensive, at least for us.

    Yes, that's expensive, sorry I couldn't help. iherb has so many customers in Australia they now have a warehouse here, which makes shipping a lot faster.
