Youâ€™ll have to join to get more details, but here are the top line findings.
Two supplements failed to pass ConsumerLabâ€™s recent tests of iron supplements.
- One â€œhigh potencyâ€ supplement contained just 37% of its claimed iron.
- A second supplement was contaminated with lead.
- However, 17 other iron supplements met quality standards.
The bottom line?
I think theyâ€™re giving less free information in their news releases.
Actually, the quality control reported by ConsumerLab with iron supplements is better than they’ve reported with other supplements tested.
As Iâ€™ve said before, Iâ€™m not associated with ConsumerLab. But they provide an important service that more people should know about.
