Specially when taking several supplements you DO want to take in consideration what is it made out of, what ingredients!
Below is a video from Dr. Mercola with some basic BUT vital tips on it. He covers the difference tablet x caps.

  • prefer to get as much nutrientes from your food, quality food. Organic has more nutrientes. Supplements from WHOLE foods or FOOD based is better absorbed by the body.
  • Multivitamins needs to be taken more than ONE cap/tablet and the ones from whole food is waaaay better than synthetic. iF it comes with PRE or PRObiotic is really super because helps digestion.
  • Do your homework: Look up what each supplement does, its risks and benefits AND the ingredients. There are 2 websites very good for this purpose:iHERB and DR.MERCOLA

When choosing Me-B12, Look for the word “methylcobalamin” on the bottle, and avoid the word “cyanocobalamin” on the bottle because is not the natural form.

Tip: Me-B12 (Methyl-Vitamin B12) also known as methylcobalamin 1mg/day reduces homocysteine.

“Flow Agents”? Fillers ? Some additives are absolutaly not acceptable. Flow agents aim to keep ingredients from sticking to equipment during compression process. Is just a cost effective ingredient. It’s up to us to educate the manufactures. I don’t pay for supplements that have doubtful ingredients. There brands that don’t use them!!

magnesium stearate: ”  Magnesium stearate is not a source of magnesium and has no benefits, but may have a detrimental effect on your immune function as stearic acid has been linked to suppression of T cells. The filler also stimulates your gut to form a biofilm, which can prevent proper absorption of nutrients in your digestive tract.” NOT ACCEPTABLE.

is to say the least processed and refined …
Technically carrageenan is considered a dietary fibre.
After harvest, the seaweed is dried, baled, and sent to the carrageenan manufacturer. There the seaweed is ground, sifted to remove impurities such as sand, and washed thoroughly. After treatment with hot alkali solution (e.g., 5–8% potassium hydroxide), the cellulose is removed from the carrageenan by centrifugation and filtration. The resulting carrageenan solution is then concentrated by evaporation. It is dried and ground to specification.

On November 18, 2016 the National Organic Standards Board voted to remove it from the list of approved substances for food items labeled “organic”
