Look for a brand that manufactures to a high standard. If you are a health care professional yourself and use supplements in practice you might even like to request a visit to the manufacturing facility. Nutritional food supplements can come in a range of forms; most commonly capsules, tablets, oils and liquid solutions. When using liquid supplements always be very careful when using a dropper or pipette as it can be easy to lose track of the number of drops applied.

Capsules are often considered to be better than tablets for several reasons but mainly because tablets are held together with "binders". These are glue-like ingredients that make the tablet stick together and hold its shape.

Capsules are often made from several materials but the main ones include fish gelatin, bovine gelatin and plant cellulose. Most people prefer a plant cellulose capsule.
