Top Killer Features of The Supplement DatabaseK
The Supplement Database
The Supplement Database launched in 2019 to provide objective product reviews. Since then, a few features have been added to make the site more powerful and help you find the perfect supplement, whatever your needs.
Currently, the database contains about 3,500 products from over 700 manufacturers. Sifting through all these reviews is daunting. The product filter allows you to search through the database’s products using various filters. Suppose you wanted to find a pre-workout supplement made by a particular company, containing citrulline malate, taurine, and beta-alanine, without caffeine, that came in either gummy or capsule form. The product filter would allow you to find those products.
Maybe you needed a protein powder that included whey protein isolate and pea protein isolate, that also had creatine monohydrate but not vitamin B6, had less than 2 grams of fat per serving, with 90% of each serving coming from protein. The protein supplement filter would find the perfect protein powder based on those preferences. The ability to narrow your search from 3,500 products to a handful is unparalleled in the supplement review world.
The supplement comparison tool allows you to compare any two products against each other. Other supplement sites make comparisons only with the big name brands. This tool enables you to compare famous brands with millions of followers (Optimum Nutrition, Cellucor, 1st Phorm) to the lesser-known brands (Blue Print Supplements, VFit Protocol, Klout Pwr). With 3,500 products, there are a possible 6 million possible comparisons to check out. Comparisons include side-by-side ingredient profiles, what claims each product is good at, and overall ratings. Based on eight factors, this tool will tell you which product is a better buy.
One of the main points of this database is to provide objective reviews of supplements. All ratings are based on peer-reviewed research articles on a product’s ingredient profile. Ingredient pages list links to peer-reviewed references used in the ratings. Some review sites are based on subjective ratings such as how the product tastes, how well it mixes, how incredible the label artwork is, or how well it works for the reviewer. The Supplement Database’s ratings are 100% unbiased and only based on what the research says about a product’s ingredient profile.
Small Products Included
Most supplement sites focus their attention on reviewing the big brands. That’s where all the traffic, attention, and money come from. The Supplement Database does not discriminate. The database includes reviews on big, medium, and small brands. If you know of a brand that isn’t included, use the contact form to get them added.
It’s costly to launch a supplement brand. You need supplies, a facility, and employees. These days, many supplement brands outsource manufacturing to other companies. The result is that many products share the same formula. In itself, this isn’t a huge issue. The problem is that prices for the exact formula could vary a significant amount. Take this fat-burning supplement. Currently, 12 products share the same formula. The cheapest version is $19.99, while the most expensive is $59.99. The supplement similarity index shows you which products share 75%-100% of their ingredient profiles with other products. This tool could potentially save you money and alert you to non-unique products.
The Bottom Line
The Supplement Database is an ever-growing resource providing objective information to allow you to decide on which product best fits your needs.
