Spooky Supplement News

Here’s something spooky for Friday the 13th:

An investigation by the New York State attorney general’s office into store-brand supplements at four national retailers — GNC, Target, Walgreens and Wal-Mart — found that only 21% actually contained the herbs listed on the labels.

This study was done on herbs, but I imagine vitamins and minerals are also “mystery bottles”. Contact me for high-quality nutrition supplements!!

“Additionally, five of the 24 contained wheat and two contained beans without identifying them on the labels — both substances are known to cause allergic reactions in some people.”

Walmart was the worst offender.
