Shark Tank is one of my favorite shows on TV, and over the years I’ve noticed people pitching various medical products. Today I pulled together all the health pitches from Shark Tank US and Australia and decided to play a shark myself. I donned my best suit, got out my check book, and evaluated these pitches on their medical validity. Honestly, there were some solid products! The synthetic bodies from Syndaver Labs piqued my interest, as did the Simple Sugars Exfoliating Scrub and Throat Scope tongue depressor, which I’ve actually used in real life. Other pitches though, like “ion-canceling watches” or miracle cures for the flu AND common cold… nuh uh, Dr. VarSHARKsi is out. Props to my man Mark Cuban for keeping it real and calling out those scams! Any pitches I missed? Let me know in the comments!

I know exactly ONE person who cannot swallow pills. Even just ibuprofen or something. It's EXTREMELY difficult for him to swallow a pill for some reason. But that's it. One person.

Also the fact that you may not be absorbing vitamin c could be due to a magnesium deficiency. Vitamins need to work together and be present in the body in order to metabolize. Eating more vitamins isn't really going to help absorption, and certain vitamins can be bad for you if there's too much in your body. You should only take an extra dose of a vitamin if your doctor recommends it due to a deficiency in your blood. Otherwise, a multi vitamin and mineral supplement that you can take daily is enough. Everything in moderation, as they say.

Can we appreciate that half the reason they created the supplements was because of the excessive amount in the pills that the body is unable to absorb, but are promoting an excessive amount as a benefit

Watch Veritasiums video on salt lamps. That's an actual science channel btw. He states that, while salt lamps don't set free negative ions, positive ions are very much a real thing and can have unpleasant effects. However, producing negative ions, which would help in that circumstance, is difficult

"Vitamin C, you know it's good for supporting your immune system" - yes, because some fraudster did a good marketing job 30-odd years ago, and there is still no scientific evidence that it vitamin supplements treat anything but actual Vitamin insufficiency. Which for Vitamin C is very unlikely in the developed world, seeing as ascorbic acid is the number 1 food preservative present basically in all processed foods.

I’ve only ever been able to take calpol kids medicine as pain relief as I’ve never been able to swallow pills properly. I’ve only recently been able to take my birth control, which is tiny, when mixed with a thick yogurt or mousse and I still choke on it more often then not. When getting vitamin tablets I had to get gummies so I could swallow them

I don't know if this has been mentioned yet, but products that claim to be "negative ion" come in two varieties. The first is just total BS, meaning they don't actually send out any ions whatsoever and it's just a scam. The second is far more serious, as they often contain thorium powder, which is highly radioactive. While small amounts of exposure to thorium is relatively safe, having it strapped to your wrist every day is very dangerous and will lead to the typical problems associated with prolonged radiation exposure. That product should be tested and if it shows up hot under a geiger counter then the NRC should be notified immediately.
