How to decode a
Supplement Facts Panel

Marketing can lie but the supplement facts panel can’t.

Use this guide to determine if the supplement you’re considering is clean, active, and potent.

SOURCE

Where are your ingredients from?

Undisclosed origin is an indicator it may be a commodity ingredient from an unknown source. These may be adulterated, containing different plant species or unwanted additives.

Ours are 100% traceable and unadulterated. Independently tested for identity, heavy metals, pesticides, and more.

DOSE

How potent is your formula?

If the actives aren’t listed on the panel, there is no guarantee the supplement contains functional levels.

We are transparent with our ingredient levels and use human clinical studies, traditional usage, and FDA recommended levels to inform functional doses.

FORM

Can your body put them to use?

Bioactive vitamin forms are listed after the name in the supplement facts panel. Our actives are bioavailable (ensures absorption) and bioactive (easily assimilated).

Look at “other ingredients” – these can impact efficacy. Beware of Magnesium Stearate, a flow agent that can negatively affect bioavailability.

SOURCE

If a vitamin is naturally derived, the source plant species will be listed here. Look for organic.

Other sourcing information should be listed on the product page. Undisclosed ingredient origin is an indicator of a commodity ingredient.

DOSE

Look for chelated minerals (bound to an amino acid) to maximize bioavailability. The mineral name will be followed by the amino acid name. When a mineral is chelated, it doesn’t compete with other minerals for absorption and is easier on your gut.

Ask for a breakdown of the proprietary blend to see if the levels are functional.

FORM

The vitamin forms are listed in parentheses. Check to see if it’s the most bioactive.

This is a standardized extract, which means that it shows the levels of bioactives present in the plant material.

OTHER

What the capsule itself is made of, flow agents, and other additives will be listed here.

If the formula contains these, it’s not clean:

Magnesium Stearate is a flow agent that can negatively affect bioavailability.

Modified ingredients can indicate GMO (e.g. modified food starch. Additives like shellacs (e.g. pharmaceutical glaze), binders (e.g. stearin, corn starch), and coatings can affect negatively bioavailability and can be made with GMO ingredients.
