Walgreens, Target, GNC & Walmart Caught Selling Fake Supplements
The New York State attorney general’s office did an investigation on herbal supplements sold at Walgreens, Target, GNC and Wal-Mart.
Their conclusion: The supplements sold at these stores contained little or none of the actual herb it was to contain as listed on the facts label. In fact, some of the products contained none of the herb listed on the label but a lot of fillers that they neglected to list on the label.
Is this is a blow to the whole supplement industry. NO!
If this same investigation was done at a Mrs. Green’s or other health food store that sell products from companies such as Solgar, Nature’s Plus, New Chapter, Bluebonnet, Soloray, Gaia, Herb Pharm, Eclectic Institute, Enzymatic Therapy (to name some of the best) there would be positive results. These companies do third party testing, have clinical studies documented on their website, and, don’t sell main stream because they are dedicated to health food stores where people shop to get results from their supplements.
If you are looking for a supplement and want to know which company I suggest to buy it from, please ask.
