Supplement Quality Opinion Survey

What kinds of information are in the survey?

Register now to participate in our survey.

For each individual product that a person rates, we ask for four pieces of information:

  • brand name (such as Solgar or CVS)
  • product name or ingredient (such as vitamin C)
  • rating, where +2 is highest quality and -2 is worst
  • comment (optional), where people can describe their experience

When you search our survey, the results will look like this:

Brand name Product Rating
Epitome Supplements calcium 70% from 5 people rating this product. (Show comments.)
Epitome Supplements vitamin C 81% from 4 people rating this product. (Show comments.)

Clicking on the Show comments link for the Epitome brand of calcium would produce a screen like this:

Rater Date Rating Comment
1@epitome.com Mar 15, 2003 100% Epitome calcium is great stuff.
21@here.com Mar 16, 2003 100% Chewable and delicious.
3@there.org Apr 1, 2003 75% It's cheap and seems to work fine.
17@web.net Apr 22, 2003 50% This may be fine for some people, but I had an allergic reaction.
6@myco.com Jul 15, 2003 25% It's cheap because it's poor quality. Doesn't pass the home dissolution test.
