About Us

SHQ History

Supplement HQ began in 2013 as a workout supplement ranking site, but years later we found ourselves ever interested in the science and evidence behind specific ingredients and types of supplements.

Now, Supplement HQ works with registered dieticians, naturopath doctors, and health experts to bring together real-world and research-backed information on ingredients of interest.

Our Mission

While we include lists of our highest rated supplement recommendations on this site, or primary focus is on the accuracy of the information we provide on each topic.

Basically, teaching you about an ingredient is our primary concern, while giving you an easy, well-vetted recommendation is our second.
