thanks for all the sweet and encouraging comments and emails about our skin issues. just as we said our face was getting better we got a few more pimples. looks like our journey is going to be a long one. Lori is just starting to worry because she does not want to have these skin issues for her wedding in the spring! so we are determined to figure it all out!
moving onto today’s topic. one that hit home for Lori and I.
we sometimes watch the Dr. Oz show. and last week he did a show about health scams! and it only confirmed what Lori and I fear about supplements.
we are not huge supplement takers. for one main reason – are they working? again which Dr. Oz confirmed on his show, that not all pills contain what they claim!
pretty scary eh?
the only real supplements we take are a liquid Vitamin D3, probiotiocs, digestive enzyme, Vitamin B12, and recently Omega oil blend. after seeing the Dr. Oz show we are rethinking our supplements.
are they really containing what they say? what companies to really trust?
we plan to do some more research on the companies we are currently using for our supplements to see if we can figure out if they are a GOOD brand. in terms that their products really do contain what they claim on the bottle.
that is one reason why Lori and I started up our company, Twin Cakes. because we have sensitive stomachs and did not like nor trust many products on the market. being in the food industry we can now see how companies can get away with lying about their products. how they can fill their products with bad, harmful ingredients! it is scary how many companies out there do this.
at Twin Cakes you will never found fillers. you will only find us getting the best ingredients we can and using them in our products. we would never sell something we would not eat ourselves! as business owners, especially in the food industry we find it sad that so many companies still put unnecessary ingredients in their products. we are not sure how those owners sleep at night? or how people can still buy those products?
it is just scary that food these days are not what they were a few years ago. and how now we have to rely on supplements to help, but then our supplements are not what they are anymore? yikes now what to do
here are the links to the few segments of the Dr. Oz show that we watched and could not believe what we heard.
first was the scam of probiotiocs and coconut water. how so many companies claims are wrong on the bottles!
second was the scam of Omega-3′s. how again the claims on bottles were wrong.
what do you think about supplements and the false claims on bottles? do you trust the brand you are taking? do you ever question what is exactly in the pills, supplements, or food products you are eating?
we know from our personal experience that we have taken a pill, we think it is working, but over time we notice no improvements. so just maybe that pill we thought was helping us was not!
till next time,
