COVID 19 CHANGES: HealthLeads are working very hard to keep orders flowing and delivered speedily. Some base products have increased in their cost to us and we have had to pass this on but for the most part we are keeping our prices as close to normal as possible. We are certainly not increasing prices due to extra demand and want to reassure customers there will be no capitalising on customers needs during this time. We have also dropped the price on our Vitamin C Powder. Please stay safe and look after each other. The HealthLeads Team

Whats In Your Supplements?

We think that all supplements should be additive free, without fillers, bulking agents, flow agents & anti-frictional agents, but why?

One widely used additive is magnesium stearate, it has many uses, it can be used as a filler, a bulking agent, a flow agent & as a anti-frictional agent. There are studies & research that show some commonly used supplement additives affect the disintegration time (1). Other research indicates that specific additives may be immunosuppressive in some people (2).

If there is any doubt or questions on the safety of such additives we think they should not be used, thats exactly what we do, we are proud of it & we hope you are too!

We don't use talcum powder, titanium dioxidemagnesium stearate or any other stearates in our supplements, we aim to make all our supplements additive free. Where a filler is indispensable we will only ever use a nutritional ingredient, organic rice flour, natural & healthy.
