Although the science behind how nutrients work in the body is fascinating, it can seem odd to get excited about a supplement—until you find one that works for you.
Is there a nutrient or herb or combination remedy that you take faithfully—one that seems to move the needle up on your health, or how you feel about health and prevention? Or perhaps a new gummy or sachet or liquid supplement that makes supplementing your diet a pleasure instead of a pill-gulping chore?
We are looking for a few good supplements—24, in fact, in these categories.
What we're looking for
We’ll give special preference to products that have invested in clinical human research—ideally research on the finished product, not just the component ingredients. We also want to learn about products with cutting-edge or unique ingredients, formulations, and manufacturing processes.
We’re interested in supplements that manage to deliver an enjoyable user experience, while keeping the ingredient list pure and natural—free of sugar or artificial sweeteners, fillers and binders.
We want to know about protein powders that not only have great ingredients but also taste great; about effective products for blood-sugar management; and about supplements that serve people on special diets such as gluten-free or vegan.
Results will be published in the March 2013 issue of Delicious Living and Natural Foods Merchandiser magazines.
