The dietary supplement world is approaching 1 Trillion dollars in revenue each year. It isn't just athletes and bodybuilders using supplements anymore. As the demand has grown, the competition has become fierce. Unfortunately the customer is 100% reliant on non-FDA regulated labels and confusing ingredient listings.
I decided to change all of that with Supplement Snoop. Our massive database contains products and ingredients analyzed by non-biased research. You can use the barcode scanner or simply search for the product or ingredient you want to see and the results are immediate.
On the main screen I have included a rotating group of supplements to get the user started off on the right foot. You can choose a product from our list, which includes detailed photos, and the complete label description pops up. Included in this list is the serving size/identified ratio. This is an important function because I have actually added up the amounts of included ingredients and compared it to the serving size to see how closely it matches up. There are also flavor-specific ingredients that you can choose by scrolling through our flavor wheel. It was shocking to me to see the differences the various flavors contain. Beyond that you will see a concise description of each ingredient the supplement contains, and what its identified amount is.
To go a step further we have included a side by side comparison feature that allows you to quickly and easily compare products to see which one stacks up the best for your goals and budget. You can see which products contain which ingredients and the amounts are listed if the company gives the exact amount.
People have used our app for educational and economic purposes. The goal is simply to give the consumers as much information as possible in order to feel confident about the products they are buying, rather than just trusting a company and their tagline.

In fact, in many homes, you will find large tubs of supplements sitting right next to the muesli or oatmeal in the kitchen cupboard. Not so long back, the only people that bought them were body builders but that's all changed now. They are now well and truly a part of the world of dietary supplements and are taken as part of a controlled diet by regular people just like you and me. The only trouble is, despite the supplement industry being worth over a trillion dollars a year, it is largely unregulated by the FDA. This means that users have to rely on non-FDA labeling and confusing ingredients listings when trying to work out exactly what a product contains as well as its recommended serving size.
