What Are Additives?

When it comes to your supplements, we’ve spent a lot of time talking about just how important it is that you take the time to make the best decision for your specific needs. You should do your research and look into the claims the manufacturer or distributor is making about the supplement, not simply take it for face value. What we haven’t spent a lot of time talking about, however, is one of the main reasons you should be so careful: additives. At Amazon Thunder, we’re concerned about your health and well-being – and that’s why we are additive free.


You’re probably taking supplements because you’re looking to attain or maintain good health, or maybe address a health issue. Whatever the reason, it’s likely that you’re not taking them because you want to increase the amount of things you consume that are bad for you, right? Right!

 That’s why you need to be careful when it comes to additives. These are non-beneficial substances that can be significantly harmful to your health in the long run. They include things like stearic acid, gelatin, titanium dioxide, sodium selenite, and diacalcium phosphate. Stearic acid in particular is quite popular when it comes to supplements because adding it in can help reduce manufacturing costs and also quicken the process.

 Why Are Additives Used?

While we’re going to take a closer look at this in an upcoming writing, for now let’s take a quick look at some of the reasons why additives are added to your supplements:

  • Binders
  • Carriers
  • Preservatives
  • Coating
  • Filler
  • Sweetener
  • Flavor

 As you can see, there are a number of different reasons why someone might decide to include additives in their supplement. The question, of course, is whether or not these are necessary and whether or not they are harmful to your health. In short, they are not necessary and can be quite harmful to your health.

 At Amazon Thunder, we don’t use additives in our supplements, and we don’t think you should settle for second best. Stay tuned for more on our latest series that takes an in-depth look at additives and how they can affect you.
