Sorry, I had to do this post about health and weight loss scams. I just feel it’s important to know the details of things when it comes to our health because I’ve been duped before like if it’s too good to be true, then likely it probably is. Not getting the results you want, it’s quite possible you might not.
Here is some important information to keep in mind
Buying weight loss products from ethnic or international stores
Be cautious when buying herbal or weight loss supplements as their products may carry a hidden ingredient called sibutramine which was removed from the market in 2010 according to the FDA. Unfortunately, ethnic populations are often the target for these types of illegal supplements.
After watching the Netflix documentary series Rotten I was very upset and disturbed when I found out that the honey I had been buying for years was mostly syrup. What was even more upsetting was that it was labeled organic. When buying honey make sure to check the label-made in China, don’t buy it.
Anti-Aging supplements do they work?
Any pill that is claiming to slow the process of aging you should be skeptical about it. There are products that can be used to smooth wrinkles but as far as slowing the aging process that has yet to be proven. Maintaining a healthy diet and healthy lifestyle is all that is necessary.
Is my Himalayan Salt Lamp Fake?
Is your salt lamp very light? Or so bright that it illuminates the whole room then chances are it’s probably fake. Himalayan salt lamps are heavy, emits a light glow, and are usually expensive. Chances are you won’t experience any of the numerous health benefits that salt lamps have to offer like relieving asthma, improved mood and concentration and alleviating allergy symptoms.
Foot Detox Pads
Food detox pads claim to do everything from remove impurities and relieve joint pain to weight loss. These pads have not even been approved by the FDA. In fact, one of the most popular brands Kinoki ceased mass production after the FTC filed suit against them after their false claims that their pads treated numerous medical conditions.
Takeaways from this post: Researching is everything, Netflix documentaries are becoming very useful educational tools, and nothing beats a healthy lifestyle 😎
