Dear Readers,

As founders of indyvit.com, today we would like to talk about an important topic that is often overlooked: harmful additives in conventional supplements. While many people look to supplemental products to improve their health, it is crucial that we are aware of what we are putting into our bodies. In this article, we will show you the risks and side effects of harmful additives found in most supplements available in retail stores or pharmacies.

Anti-caking agents:
Many conventional supplements contain anti-caking agents such as magnesium stearate or silicon dioxide. These substances are added to prevent the ingredients from sticking together. However, they can interfere with the absorption of the actual nutrients and potentially cause gastrointestinal problems.

Dyes and artificial flavors:
Unfortunately, many commercial supplements also contain unnatural dyes and artificial flavors to look or taste more attractive. However, these additives can cause allergic reactions and even lead to long-term health problems. At indyvit.com we consciously avoid such ingredients.

Some companies add fillers to their products to increase the size of the capsules or tablets and give the impression that they contain more content. However, these fillers offer no nutritional benefits and may even reduce the effectiveness of the actual active ingredients. Maltodextrin is an example of a safe filler that we use at indyvit.com, as it is well tolerated and has no negative impact on the quality of our products.

To improve the taste, some supplement manufacturers add sweeteners such as aspartame, saccharin or sucralose. However, these chemical sweeteners can lead to metabolic disorders and increase the craving for sweet foods. At indyvit.com we completely avoid sweeteners.

When choosing food supplements, it is crucial to pay attention to harmful additives. Avoiding anti-caking agents, artificial colors, fillers and sweeteners can help protect your health and avoid unwanted side effects. At indyvit.com, we place great importance on the quality of our products and only use the safe additive maltodextrin to ensure that you only get the best for your body.
