The healthcare supplement market is ridden with ineffective or harmful products that do more damage than good to consumers.
A majority of health supplement manufacturers in the market have begun to exploit the health-conscious consumer by offering low-quality supplements, which are interestingly backed by high-strung marketing budgets. The consumer is unaware of these marketing gimmicks in most cases, and ends up spending dollars upon dollars on products that are adding little to no value to their health, and worse still having dangerous effects on their health.
More than 97% of the supplement companies use very cheap alternatives and toxic additives that do the exact opposite of what health supplements are expected to do. So what is the consumer supposed to do in such a situation? Forgo supplements entirely?

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Tuesday, November 17, 2015)
Justice Department and Federal Partners Announce Enforcement Actions of Dietary Supplement Cases
Criminal Charges Brought against Bestselling Supplement Manufacturer
As part of a nationwide sweep, the Department of Justice and its federal partners have pursued civil and criminal cases against more than 100 makers and marketers of dietary supplements. The actions discussed today resulted from a year-long effort, beginning in November 2014, to focus enforcement resources in an area of the dietary supplement market that is causing increasing concern among health officials nationwide. In each case, the department or one of its federal partners allege the sale of supplements that contain ingredients other than those listed on the product label or the sale of products that make health or disease treatment claims that are unsupported by adequate scientific evidence.
Among the cases announced today is a criminal case charging USPlabs LLC and several of its corporate officers. USPlabs was known for its widely popular workout and weight loss supplements, which it sold under names such as Jack3d and OxyElite Pro.
According to the DOJ, USP Labs in Texas imported bulk isolated chemical ingredients from China, and then mislabeled them as plant-based ingredients. They also engaged in deceptive marketing and even the chemical adulteration of their product, says the DOJ, causing liver damage in numerous customers and putting hundreds of thousands of people at risk.
In a widely publicized announcement today, the DOJ, FDA, FTC and DoD all urged consumers to beware of what they call “high risk supplements” which are;
• Weight loss dietary supplements made with chemical stimulants and marketed with outrageous claims of magical weight loss.
• Bodybuilding supplements made with chemical ingredients that promise unreal muscle gains but actually contain potentially hazardous chemicals.
• Performance-enhancing supplements that may contain banned substances (doping)which may also pose a risk to consumers.
Criminal indictments were handed down today against at least four executives of the USP Labs company in Texas, plus at least 20 warning letters have been sent out to other companies for engaging in what the federal government described as misleading, even “criminal” behavior.
While most of the dietary supplement industry operates ethically and honestly, a few bad apples are raking in millions of dollars each month in sales of dishonest, chemically adulterated products that endanger the public.
Basically, consumers have been buying dummy pills this whole time. No wonder you hear people saying, “Supplements don’t work!” How can they work when they don’t have what’s listed on the labels!
This is not to dissuade you from exercising. Exercise is actually very good for health as long as you chose the right quality supplements.
Dr. Joel Wallach
- “Ladies and gentleman’s, You can’t cherry pick your vitamins. Vitamins work together in unison, to bring about total health of body. Replenishing yourself on one or a few of them will not yield any extra result”.
- “Did you know that when you perspire, your body sweat alone contains more than 65 nutrients? These cannot be replenished by simply drinking water”.
- “However, without the right supplementation to your diet, you put your health at risk. Dr. Joel Wallach points out that the average lifespan of an athlete is 52 years, while a couch potato lives on into his 60s. The reason? Athletes perspire more, losing a lot of vital nutrients in the process – and these are not replaced/replenished”.

Each year an estimated 325,000 people die in the United States from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Of that number the Heart Rhythm Society estimates about 7,000 of these deaths are in children and infants.
Sudden cardiac death is a result of the heart abruptly shutting down. Often, it’s the final stage of a heart attack. http://abcnews.go.com/WNT/story?id=131193
While most victims are in their 60s and 70s, the latest study by Centers for Disease Control reported today that the rate of young people dying from cardiac arrest has soared in the last 10 years.
The CDC says there are 3,000 of these deaths annually among Americans age 15 to 34, a 10 percent increase during the past decade.
“We’re talking about young adults,” says Dr. George Mensah of the Centers for Disease Control, “who have no symptoms and who die suddenly, sometimes within an hour of having their first onset of symptoms.”
How about off-Counter medications? You’d think they’re safer?
Also, Medical Journal Hepatology researchers say that, Many Pain Killers like Tylenol poisoning leads to 42 percent of acute liver failure cases in the U.S. and 30 percent of the deaths.
