Rating Methodology


Our process for assessing supplement suppliers involves comprehensive research of individual products. We collect qualitative and quantitative data about each brand and the user experience to make direct comparisons between supplements. We evaluate brands based on three criteria: Reputation, Quality & Transparency, and Pricing.

Brand Transparency

We will consider various factors related to brands and companies, including their age of establishment and whether they have FDA assurance of safety and quality or comply with FDA regulations. Additionally, we will review customer feedback and any past lawsuits related to product quality from the time of establishment until now.

  • Sourcing ans Ingredients: The safe source of the material will be reviewed and validated. The ingredients listed on the packaging and in the product description will also be validated.
  • Third-Party Testing: To verify ingredient content and potential contaminants, we will review certificates of analysis (COAs). It is important to compare the validity period stated on the product with that on the COAs. This is almost mandatory for a high-quality product. We will also examine the LOQ or LOD labs to obtain an accurate estimate of the THC content in the product.
  • Manufacturing Standard: To ensure a quality product, it is essential that the manufacturing facility is FDA compliant and adheres to good practices. The address of the facility and the production method will be provided for optimal results.
5Excellent QualityThe product contains natural ingredients and has been certified effective by third-party testing. There is no recall history and the factory meets GMP standards. Additionally, there are no additives and no negative reviews from consumers.

It is important to note that the products reviewed may interact with other medications you are taking. We strive to provide comprehensive information on the side effects of each product.
  • Ingredient: Another concern is the unreliability of product purity and evaluation. We will provide lab reports and expert opinions on the products we review. The ingredients in the products have been approved by the FDA.

We strive to provide informative content, but please note that any subjective evaluations will be clearly marked as such. If you have underlying medical conditions and plan to use supplement products, it is important to consult with your doctor.

Supporting Clinical Research

While product test claims are often highly accurate, they are by no means absolute. In order to increase our customers’ confidence when using our products, we have established criteria for verifying the accuracy of product claims.

There are 2 main types of research:

– Randomised controlled trial (RCT)

– Observational studies

Randomised controlled trial (RCT): An RCT is a type of scientific experiment that is used to control for factors that are not directly under experimental control. Clinical trials comparing the effects of drugs, surgical techniques, medical devices, diagnostic procedures or other medical treatments are examples of RCTs.

An RCT allows for statistical control of these influences by randomly assigning participants to one of two treatments. An RCT can achieve sufficient control over these confounding factors to provide a useful comparison of the treatments being studied if it is well designed, properly conducted, and enrols a sufficient number of participants.

Observational studies: Unlike the RCT method described above, which uses randomised subjects and can be difficult to analyse and draw conclusions from, these studies have clearly specified target groups in order to accurately analyse the effects of products on specific target groups.

Combining the two studies above means that very few real-life cases are missed in the study and the claims are more accurate.

Supporting clinical research is part of medical and health research aimed at generating knowledge that is valuable for health promotion and prevention.

5Strong Support ResearchIncluding features from (4)The studies supporting the claims and ingredients are strong and up to date over several time periods; conduct 1-2 randomised controlled trials (RCT) and observational studies for human health. Research published on reputable portals (Pubmed, NIH, etc.)

3Sufficient ResearchFew types of research by individuals have at least 1 human health study or animal/laboratory study.
2Little Support ResearchInsufficient evidence to support claims; studies used are controversial and invalid; didn’t involve animal testing.
1False/No Support ResearchFalse claims; False or no supporting evidence


Price has always been one of the key factors influencing consumers’ purchasing decisions. We always want to guide users to products that offer a balance between quality and value.

CLIC editors and health professionals will combine the above factors and compare them with the prices of alternative products on the market, as well as reviews from users who have purchased the product, to give consumers the most objective view of the value of that product.

Health Service 

Our methodology for evaluating online therapy providers is thorough and data-driven. We were able to compare services directly by collecting qualitative and quantitative data about each company and their users’ experiences.

We evaluated each company based on its ease of use, sign-up process, subscription offerings, client privacy and ease of switching therapists. We then looked at therapist qualifications, the different types of therapy available, quality of care, client-therapist communication options, session length and the therapist matching process. Finally, we considered cost, value for money, insurance, overall user satisfaction and the likelihood that clients would recommend the service.

Ease of use

We base our ratings on our real-life experience and through user satisfaction surveys on issues such as Is the sign up process really quick and easy? What are the options for communicating with customer support? And what is the speed of response? The process of switching between service plans is complicated.

5Extremely user-friendlyThe website is very easy to use, even for beginners. The procedures for registering and using the services are full of specific instructions. In addition, the website must have support features for people with disabilities.

  • Brand transparency: whether or not companies have transparency in their business licences or are owned by reputable companies. Are there any lawsuits or controversies in the business?

1BadThe majority of users have rated the service poorly due to its lack of research and operating license. Additionally, the service’s quality is subpar and does not effectively address the needs of its users.
