A few years ago, I was doing some research in order to find some decent vitamins and supplements to take on a regular basis. Before then, I had always been content with taking the standard ones you hear about regularly, such as Centrum or GNC Mega Men. But I also was completely ignorant to the science of it all, and quickly learned that these mass-produced tablets offered little-to-no benefit(s) whatsoever.
One of the reasons supermarket-sold supplements don’t deliver results is because most come in tablet form, which makes them extremely difficult to absorb and be of any use to the body. In order for the ingredients to be delivered the bodily components successfully, they need to be taken in capsule, fine powder, or liquid form. Unfortunately, supplements in tablet form are easily produced and cheap to make, not to mention are packed with fillers that do nothing but compromise the already low-quality ingredients.
Luckily for me, I came across a presentation on HSN by Andrew Lessman of ProCaps Laboratories, based in Henderson, Nevada. I was extremely skeptical for a period of time, and simply watched as he presented his scientific information and research findings with the audience. He was no-doubt successful, because he would often sell tens of thousands of units of his products in the span of 24-48 hours. This made me dig even further, and I found some interesting, and pleasing, information about Andrew and his company.
Andrew has been researching ingredients and making vitamins since the late-1970s. His facility is entirely powered by solar energy, certainly one of the greatest achievements from an environmental standpoint. Andrew’s mission is simple – offer the greatest supplements to his customers, even if that means paying a little bit more for the best ingredients. By “best,” I mean completely and fully all-natural ingredients without any types of fillers or unnecessary ingredients.
So, after several months of researching Andrew and his company, I ordered my first delivery of several of his products, which by the way, are not available in stores or outside of the ProCaps Laboratories and HSN websites. Shipping does take a few extra days, and for a very good reason. Products are often made on-demand, meaning that during peak ordering periods, your order may very well be made within days of being delivered to you. This definitely beats the alternative of buying a pre-made product from a store than may have left it in the warehouse for several months or years.
Since my first order, I have placed several more, and over the years I have experimented with different supplements offered by Andrew. I have also adjusted my order quantities so I can tailor them to my own personal needs with regard to daily intake of certain ingredients and order frequency.
Below is a chart of what I have found to be my perfect daily intake regimen and ordering frequency (90 days). I encourage everyone to experiment to find out what works for them – regardless of what brand you choose. A “one-a-day” single vitamin simply doesn’t do the trick, and top medical journals are increasingly publishing supportive findings for this statement.
Most of the products are available in multiple sizes from 60 count to sometimes several-hundred count, depending on the product and recommended serving size. This is to allow customers to be able to decide for themselves what is most efficient and useful for them.
I have noticed an absolutely positive difference since my first order. Andrew’s products were a big reason why I have enjoyed being more active in recent years with regard to running more and being confident that I am giving my body the tools it needs to recover quickly. Also, most of the supplements are tasteless capsules, making them very easy to swallow and digest.
If you would like to know more, please check out Andrew’s ‘About’ page. Also, send me a message and let me know if you currently take, or start taking, any of Andrew’s products.
