Nutritional supplements can be confusing. To really understand them, one must know quite a bit about biology and the human body, diets, and nutrition in general. Without that basic understanding, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to know what ingredients actually work, or what they even do. Add to that the frequently over-the-top marketing and mischaracterizations that many manufacturers make when promoting their products, and it can be hard to discern fact from fiction.

The goal of this primer is to provide users with truthful, useful information, and provide a road map to help our users reach their goals with the aid of nutritional supplements. Combined with the blog, we will become one of the largest repositories of nutritional supplement information, from supplement reviews to advanced discussions about supplement ingredients.

Due to the large amount of information involved, this is a large undertaking, and will be a work in progress. We would love all of the help we can get, so if you are interested in contributing, please feel free to contact us!
