Supplements are big business. Every year, people spend billions of dollars on them.

But it’s not like you can trust supplement companies. They have one goal: to convince you to buy their supplements.

Each month, we get hundreds of messages and emails from readers who are frustrated. They’re sick of misinformation and wading through studies that contradict each other. They just want to know what’s a waste of money and what works. They’re looking for guidance on the right supplements to help them achieve their specific health goals.

So we did what we do best: we distilled the latest scientific evidence to help you figure out exactly what to take.

The Examine.com Supplement Guides are the result. We’ve taken our decades of knowledge and experience and summed it up in a series of practical guides, with each focused on a specific health goal - burning fat, building muscle, increasing testosterone, reducing anxiety, and many more.

If you’re ready to stop throwing your time and money down the drain on supplements that don’t work, get your copy of the Supplement Guides. The average American spends over $350 a year on supplements, much of that wasted on ones that are ineffective. Our Supplement Guides can decrease the amount you spend, while increasing the benefit you get, giving you more bang for your buck.

Still not convinced? Here are five reasons you need our Supplement Guides.

Reason 1: We are 100% independent

In order to be unbiased and trusted, we have to stay 100% independent. We do this by being an educational organization, not one that sells you supplements.

We don’t have any partnerships or sponsors, nor do we have a relationship with any supplement company. We don’t even sell ad space on our website. All our revenue comes from our expert guides, which both laypeople and professionals purchase to stay on top of the latest research.

We have nothing to gain if we recommend a specific supplement to you; any recommendations you see are based on evidence, not because we’re trying to push a product on you.

Reason 2: We tell you what works and what doesn’t

The #1 frustration we hear from our users is, “I just want to know what works and what’s a waste.”

As we said, we don’t sell any supplements, so we can focus on giving you recommendations based on what the evidence shows.

We also look at which supplements work well together — and which don’t. For example, caffeine can give some people jitters, but, if you take it with theanine, you eliminate the jitters while keeping the stimulant effect of caffeine!

In the guides, our experts break it down into how confidently they can recommend a supplement based on the current body of scientific evidence. So when there is not enough evidence, they’re not afraid to say, “It’s promising, but not 100% empirically backed.”

For example, protein for muscle building? Absolutely! But what about vitamin C for blood sugar control? Looks promising, but more research is needed.

We look at the research to tell you “this works”, “this does not”, or “this may be worth trying”.

Reason 3: We guide you step-by-step to help you solve your problems — no cookie-cutter recommendations

It’s not just about knowing which supplement is most effective, but also the best dosage: how much to take, how often to take it, when to take it, and what not to take with it.

We break down the research to tell you all that plus any other relevant information that may be useful (e.g., vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, so it’s best taken with a meal containing fat).

Each guide helps you with a specific goal, so you can personalize your supplements for the best combination for you.

We help you choose supplements based on your specific needs and health goals to ensure you get the optimum combination of supplements.

Reason 4: We look at the big picture so you don’t have to worry about conflicting information

A common complaint we hear is about conflicting information and all the misinformation out there.

This usually happens because writers look not at the full set of studies, but only the abstract ( a short summary of the study which can fail to capture important details). They also may not know how to make sense of studies that appear to be conflicting.

At Examine.com, we look at the entire body of research — funding, length of study, results, demographics, statistical methods, and more — and make sure we read the entirety of the scientific research so we understand the results fully. Plus we have a strict editorial policy.

This ensures you get the best recommendations for your health goals. It’s what sets us apart and how we’ve established ourselves as leaders in the supplement information industry.

Each study is focused on one piece of the big picture. We look at the entire body of research and evaluate it together to glean the best conclusions.

Reason 5: We provide you with the latest scientific research

Research is constantly evolving. With thousands of supplement studies published every year, what was current quickly becomes outdated with the latest research .

Our Supplement Guides come with free lifetime updates. As the latest research comes out, we continue to update the guides to ensure they are accurate so you can be confident when following our guides.

We include free lifetime updates so our recommendations are always up-to-date, accurate, and safe.

Bottom Line

The Supplement Guides came into existence because our users wanted something accessible and actionable that came with step-by-step directions. Instead of spending hundreds of hours trying to figure it out yourself (and still feeling unsure), you can rely on our decades of expertise to help you achieve your health goals.

Furthermore, with our unconditional 30-day money-back guarantee, if you don’t feel the Supplement Guides are worth it, we will happily return your money.

Millions of people visit us every month because of our science-based approach, and we’re thankful to reach an audience who trusts us.
