We’ve been getting a few questions we wanted to quickly clear up:

What's the difference between the Supplement Guides and Examine Plus?

The way we see it is:

  • Supplement Guides: These are easy-to-follow with step-by-step instructions. You don't have to figure it out for yourself. Content in our Supplement Guides are not found on our site. They are perfect for someone who doesn't follow all the latest and can be easily used by someone like your mother or father!

  • Plus: gives you full access to our research database. For those that like to Do-It-Yourself (DIY), this is for you. There is also a downloadable PDF of the database that is 1000+ pages.

Unless you’re a researcher, we recommend the Supplements Guides for most people. They're focused on 16 particular topics instead of overwhelming you off the bat.

Are updates included?

Absolutely. The reason this is a collection of PDFs is not only for accessibility (so you can read it on your phone, tablet, or computer), but also because we include lifetime updates. Roughly once a year we will go through our Supplement Guides and ensure that they reflect the latest evidence. You’ll never have to worry about them being out of date
