Shawn M. Talbott

Supplements are logically grouped into 12 chapters based on their primary desired effect, such as weight loss, joint support, and sports performance enhancement.

Each supplement is given a one-to-five-star rating based on the level of scientific substantiation for each of its major claimed effects.
