My name is Joe Cannon and I want you to know what I know.
I've been investigating dietary supplements for over 15 years.
I have an MS degree in exercise science and a BS degree in chemistry and biology. That qualifies me as a “geek“, hence the name of this site – and I really am kind of a geek in real life too.
I'm not a doctor or pharmacist or dietitian.
I am a teacher, writer, and the author of several books – includingNutritional Supplements What Works and Why.
In my other life, I train personal fitness trainers. Dietary supplements however, are one of my biggest passions. I like to know what works, what doesn't – and share it with others.

- No supplement company influences what I write or the conclusions I reach.
- No supplement company pays me to write these reviews.
- No pharmaceutical company pays to write these reviews.
I personally write all reviews on this website.
I link to research studies so you can double check my conclusions.
My opinions are my own and I will always recommend you speak to your doctor before taking any supplement.
I'm the guy they don't want you to know about.
I reveal what what the advertisements and “experts” don't tell you.
I am an unbiased seeker of the truth.
And, I'm here to help.
