→ Supplement companies are notorious for cutting corners, making misleading claims, and using marketing hype to make a sale.
Did you know that in 2015 the New York State Attorney General's Office went after GNC®, WalMart®, Walgreens®, and Target® for selling supplements that did not come close to meeting label claims?
79% of the herbal products they tested did not contain the herbs claimed on the label!
→ The dirty practice of “dry labbing” is absolutely rampant.
The FDA requires companies to test their products to ensure they meet label claims for identity, purity, strength, and composition.
It’s meant to ensure they meet the strict requirements and standards to help avoid contaminants.
And it’s very expensive to have products tested for purity by a qualified, 3rd party laboratory.
That’s why most companies skip it to save money, and instead show falsified testing results on their labels. (This is known as ‘dry labbing’.)
Often times supplement companies are not even aware of their own false test results.
They simply use manufacturers that gave them the lowest bid. And those manufacturers provide falsified lab tests, or none at all.
