Important Things to Know About Supplements
WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT FILLERS
It is estimated that at least 90% of all vitamin supplements contain manufacturing fillers, such as Magnesium Stearate, which offer no nutritional value.
WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT PILLS
Roughly 38% of the American population struggles to swallow pills. Instead of tackling the problem, the industry began manufacturing gummy vitamins.
Approximately 45% to 55% of people are not compliant with their daily vitamin regimen. This defeats the purpose of supplementing a daily diet. Tespo is so easy to take, it can help people improve their compliance.

HOW MUCH DO YOU REALLY KNOW ABOUT FILLERS?
We set out to develop a supplement line that focused on quality ingredients because we found the amount and type of unnecessary ingredients commonly used to manufacture pills, tablets and gummies unacceptable. Just as processed foods are loaded with additives and fillers, so are vitamins. Some of the most common excipients used are magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide, titanium dioxide, starch, microcrystalline cellulose, stearic acid, simethicone, vegetable gum, talc and propylene glycol. You will find these “other ingredients” at the bottom of the supplement panel on the back of your supplement bottle, sometimes listed as “inactive ingredients.”
Hydrogenated oils are commonly added to vitamins. They also are found in many bakery products and highly processed, nutritionally void foods. Partially hydrogenated (and hydrogenated) oils can damage the body in ways that lead to heart issues, strokes, nervous system problems, difficulties absorbing essential fatty acids, upset blood sugar regulation and more.
Artificial colors have been linked to problems from cancer to hyperactivity in children. Color is added to vitamins to make them more appealing to consumers, yet some artificial colors are derived from toxic coal tar. Coal tar is used for a variety of purposes, including for roofing, outdoor sealants, exterior paints and heating.
Magnesium stearate has no nutritional value. It is a flow agent used to keep manufacturing equipment from gumming up during vitamin production. It is used solely to increase output and cycle times during the manufacturing process. Magnesium stearate contaminates your vitamins and hinders dissolution and absorption.
Titanium Dioxide is a naturally occurring oxide of the element titanium. This mineral is used in vitamins as a pigment. It is used for this same reason in many cosmetics. However, research is now noting that titanium dioxide is a possible carcinogen and could possibly effect immune system function in the body.
