I get a kick out of these supplement manufacturers because of the dangerous chemicals they add to the supplement that go unnoticed. Here I am looking for a supplement that will have positive impact on my LDL (bad cholesterol) and my HDL (good cholesterol) and happen to notice what is added into the capsule itself. I mean the capsule has to be made of something, right? I'm searching the isles of the grocery store and trying to find a reputable brand name and scanning the ingredients to find partially hydrogenated oils in the ingredients list. If you're not familiar with partially hydrogenated oils, let me fill you in. Partially hydrogenated oils damage the body in numerous ways. They encourage heart problems, strokes, nervous system problems, block the absorption of essential fatty acids, upset blood sugar regulation and more! They typically save the manufacturer money in the production process. So, here are the supplements claiming to improve your cardiovascular health, cholesterol, etc. and adding these harmful ingredients. Heads up people! You may think you're bettering your health, but may be negating your intended purpose! Do your homework on all of the ingredients and don't forget that supplements are not regulated by the FDA.
