Avoid The Top 10 Supplement Myths To Not Get Scammed


Vince Del Monte, WBFF Pro Fitness Model, Certified Fitness Trainer

Unless you have inside “hook ups” on the best bodybuilding supplements, it’s tough to get the right information, not get confused and prevent major damage on your wallet.

Fortunately, I am privileged to have inside info that helps me not get scammed, saves lots of frustration and lots of money.

Let me help you sort out fact from fiction so that you can get yourself the “bread and butter” supplements and avoid wandering around your supplement store like a deer caught in the head lights.

Myth #1
You’re Missing Out If You’re Not Taking Supplement X

I’m like you – I don’t want to be left out in the dark if there is a hot new product available and it’s the “next big thing.”  Supplement companies use this technique to get you spend lots of money with lots of over hyped claims before the supplement has been on the market long enough to stand the test of time.

Myth #2
If The Packaging Is Sexy Then It Must Work

Most supplement companies spend more time researching techniques for packaging and drawing your eyes to the labels instead of the actual contents in the product. Do your research on the company before you get sucked in.

Myth #3
The New Product Is Always Better Than The Old Product

How do supplement companies stay in business?  By making money -lots of it and they don’t become profitable by bashing their old line and saying their new line is “inferior.”   Although there are some new innovations and formulas available, the old products don’t lose their effectiveness just because a new one has arrived.

Myth #4
The Science Backs It Up So It Must Work

Yes, some companies can back their formulas and products up by science but don’t get suckered for supplements that over use “scientific slant” which is a marketing method.  Most supplement companies don’t reveal nearly the entire truth of the science – just what you want to hear.

Myth #5
What It Says On The Bottle Is In The Bottle

What you see is not always what you get. For almost all supplement companies there is a 10% variance which means you could be getting 10% less (and maybe 10% more with a reputable company). Companies that are FDA approved or CGMP certified will help your chances of getting what it actually says on the label.

Myth #6
Cheap Prices Means a Better Deal

Like anything in life, there is no such thing as a “free lunch” and if it looks too good to be true, most likely it is. Just like you won’t ever find a diamond on sale, don’t expect to find a high quality product on sale. If it’s super cheap, then it’s cheap for a reason.

Myth #7
Higher Prices Means Higher Quality

For the most part I live by the mentality, “You get what you pay for,” and supplement marketers know that many of us hold this belief so intentionally jack up the price to create a higher perceived value.  Often times, the extra cost is going towards inflated advertising costs.

Myth #8
The Owner Of The Store Knows Best

How many times have you been in a supplement store and asked the owner or store clerk, “Which one is the best?”  Even if there is a better quality product on their shelf, sometimes they will recommend the product that the store gets the highest profit margins on – which, in most cases, is not the best quality product!

Myth #9
Supplements Are Safe Because They Are Natural

Just because you can buy them at “health food store” does not mean they are not filled with synthetics, fillers, artificial sweeteners and low quality “nutrients.”  Some fat burners will not phase certain people while other people can develop heart and blood pressure problems so beware.

Myth #10
Supplements Are Safe Because You Can Buy Them Over The Counter

Supplements are not regulated by the government so it’s up to you to do your research and determine which products are safe. The only way a unsafe supplement will leave the market is if the free market – you and I – regulate it out of existence.

I hope this shed some light on shopping for supplements and if you are interested in using the same products I use then check out

  2. Solid advice Vince.
    If you pickup any muscle magazine today your bombarded with photos of busty women holding vials of the stuff your missing out on. Don’t fall for the marketing hype.

  3. I have never seen such an informative post. This is true. A lot of people think that supplements will help them create a perfect body. But it will do nothing if you skip hard work.
