I'm a pretty frugal person when it comes to spending money but one thing I definitely splurge on is my health supplements. .
I'm not buying any vitamins or health supplements unless it's from a functional medicine supplement company and the products are third-party tested, certified organic, GMP certified, and also gluten, dairy, nut, and soy free. .
Do these cost more than the supplements sitting on the shelf at Wal-mart? Absolutely. But I would rather pay a higher price to know that I am getting good-quality supplements that will help me and not hurt me. .
The supplements sold at Wal-Mart, CVS, Rite-Aid, etc. are usually not 3rd party tested and they are made with cheap ingredients so that they can sell them for cheap. The problem is that the cheaper forms of vitamins are not always able to actually be used in your body and some can build up in your body and start to actually harm you.
If you decide to take supplements to support your health, please choose a good-quality functional medicine brand to use! If you don't want to spend the money on them, then I suggest not using any supplements at all.
