Professional Grade Supplements
You take supplements to upgrade your health, boost your immune system, improve memory, elevate your mood, help you sleep, and more. But do you know what is actually in those capsules in this non-regulated market? Probably not what you think!
A large study done by the New York State attorney general’s office found that the 4 major retailers they surveyed (Target, GNC, Walgreens, and Walmart) were ALL selling fraudulent, and potentially dangerous, herbal supplements and vitamins that did not contain ANY of what they claimed they did.
Even worse, some contained only cheap fillers that were NOT listed on the label; including rice, powered legumes (soy/peanuts), asparagus, gluten, and houseplants, that could cause severe allergic reactions in certain people.
Out of 6 vitamins and supplements tested, 4 did not have ANY of the medicine or herbs stated on their labels. NONE!
What a waste of time and money!! And worse, people are not getting the medicine they need!
Be sure you are getting what you need, and do not get your supplements from a drugstore, supermarket, or super chain!
