There are some supplements that are good for everyone, and then there are some supplements that are just plain BAD and NO ONE should take. Give your least favourite supplements and why you think they should not be bought. I’ll start it off:
Red Yeast Rice (USA produced) - The reason to buy this is for the lovastatin that helps reduce cholesterol. But the FDA forces supplement makers to remove it as statins are a prescripted drug. Why buy a supplement that has it’s active ingredient removed? Bonkers.
Red Yeast Rice.
Bladderwrack - It’s a source of iodine and might be a Sirtuin 6 activator, but also may contain a lot of heavy metals as the plants absorb these toxins and you may or may not be ingesting a lot of nasty crap that far outweighs any positives from this supplement. I have neither the time or patience to test each batch for quality. This is the main ingredient in DoNotAge’s Sirtuin 6 Activator.
Vitamin E - It may prevent cancer. It may cause cancer. It may do both. Why risk it?
What dictates how vitamin E supplements affect cancer risk?
Iron (Unless you are deficient) - Too much iron is bad and ages your body. Men who are predisposed to hemochromatosis can build up potentially toxic and even lethal amounts of iron in their vital organs and other glands, states the Iron Disorders Institute. Excess iron in men can cause tissue damage, premature aging and DNA mutations that can cause cancer. Should be taken only in deficiency and mostly by women.
