Hi, my name is Christian, that’s my CEO in the foreground. She’s the reason Healthful Papa started.
A bit of context, I have studied and reviewed many supplements for myself, my family, and my friends.
Through my research, I found that some ingredients in certain supplements can be ineffective or even deadly.
I even heard some supplement companies are using manufacturers from China for higher profit margins.
Do you know about China’s baby milk scandal? Where 300,000 infants were poisoned by melamine, a chemical used in plastic. Six died, and 54,000 babies were hospitalized.
Twenty-two companies were involved in the fiasco. Twenty-two! Not one company, not one person questioned the fact that a chemical used in plastic mixed with baby formula can be dangerous.
Reports of babies suffering from kidney stones caused by the baby formula were only ignored until they couldn’t sweep it under the rug anymore.
The companies involved were punished, but six innocent babies died, and many more were hospitalized.
Eventually, the toxic substance melamine was banned. But, it is still being discovered in foods today.
Be wary of where you buy your products from, especially if you’ll be putting them inside your body.
It’s not only China that this sort of debacle happens. Some supplement companies here claim to be big-time. But in reality, they are mixing their supplements in their garage. And these guys are perceived to be the good ones.
While some dishonest marketers will tell you that a group of doctors and scientists put together their formula to get you to buy their products.
During my research on a weight loss supplement, I stumbled on a very well known product that negatively affected people’s health. Supposedly put together by health professionals.
Their product contained a very well known weight loss ingredient that caused many hospitalizations and liver failure.
Nearly a quarter of cases suffer irreversible liver damage, resulting in potential liver transplant (4%) and death (6%).[source: Dangerous dietary supplements: Garcinia cambogia-associated hepatic failure requiring transplantation]
Moreover, some supplements are marketed as weight loss magic pills, but the research contradicts the claim. Some have only been tested on animals or had mixed outcomes.
Take raspberry ketones, for example. Although it had a positive effect on weight loss, all the studies were done on mice (1, 2, 3). There was also one study that doesn’t support its effectiveness (4).

Yet, companies, distributors, and manufacturers sell them to the public.
The FDA does not heavily regulate supplements.
Dietary Supplements can be beneficial to your health — but taking supplements can also involve health risks. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not have the authority to review dietary supplement products for safety and effectiveness before they are marketed.[source: U.S. Food and Drug Administration]
Would you risk your family’s lives and health by blindly trusting the label on a supplement bottle?
If the FDA can’t regulate these bogus, ineffective, and downright deadly supplements, what can you do?
You should be able to buy supplements, knowing all the ingredients are safe and not put you and your loved ones in harm’s way.
But, it’s not a perfect world. So, I started the Healthful Papa supplements. The dietary supplements that you can trust, transparent and formulated based on Scientific research.
First of all, we believe in our products’ effectiveness and safety. So much so that we put our face on the label. We’re in this for the long haul.
Secondly, I want my child to take supplements that actually work, are safe, and not negatively impact her health. And starting our Healthful Papa supplements is the first step.
Thirdly, our supplements’ formulas are based on human clinical trials, not mice.
Lastly, I take my own supplements and recommend them to all my friends and family.
Nurturing the power of nature’s ingredients, combining it with a scientific, holistic approach to boost our health is the best step we can take towards our general wellbeing.
Essentially, I’ve got my own vested interest in producing safe and effective supplements.
I’ve seen my mom suffer the debilitating effect of cancer and how much she endured during therapy.
She would feel weak and always tired. She couldn’t eat because her taste buds changed. She would vomit from nausea. Her fingernails started to turn dark. And, her hands feel like they are burning.
My mother is patient and understanding. But, the chemotherapy turned her into another person. Everyone was affected.
She’s still fighting. The treatment didn’t go too well. Currently waiting for scans and the doctors’ plan.
Join the fight against this life-threatening disease. Help fund the research and make cancer be treated like the common cold.
For every product purchased, $2 goes towards ACRF (Australian Cancer Research Foundation).
