There is little doubt that Dr. Oz has tried to become America's doctor. He started out as the resident health expert on the Oprah Winfrey show and now has become the foremost authority on weight loss, health, fitness and nutritional supplementation. Has he truly earned that title? Absolutely not. He has made proclamations towards the usage of certain nutrients on his television show that could downright cause harm if not properly taken.
However, let me begin by saying this is not a BLOG dedicated to bashing Dr. Oz in any way. All that we want to do here is put forth the information on his show and then examine it from a practical, scientific standpoint and discuss it. If you're a fan of Dr. Oz, you are welcome to share your views. I am neither a fan, nor a rival. I just want to share as much of the truth as possible so that people have what they need to make their own decisions.
The supplement industry is a multi-billion dollar a year business. And, over the past two years, believe it or not, Dr. Oz. has empowered a lot of greedy marketers on the road to peddling millions of dollars worth of pills and potions. Now, Dr. Oz is not responsible for the actions of others who may jump on the publicity of his show in an effort to sell products. But, he is responsible for the information that he disseminates to a faithful group of fans and followers.
Miracle weight loss in a pill? Well, just to name a few, how about raspberry ketones, african mango, green coffee beans...on and on it goes. Consider this: these nutrients have all been promoted on the Dr. Oz television show and then literally within hours of the show have found themselves in major worldwide supplement company ads, websites and even stores.
All that aside, do they really work? I mean, who cares if people are trying to make money off of these nutrients so long as they work, get results and no one gets hurt, right?
Let's begin this BLOG with YOUR questions and YOUR concerns regarding supplements and weight loss products and protocols as seen on the Dr. Oz television show.
