Products

Consumer Labs

Unbiased research on vitamin, mineral and herbal supplements.  There has been a lot in the news about supplements, even from big-name manufacturers, not containing what they say on the label.  They may contain less or none of the active ingredient and worse, they often contain fillers that could be toxic.  Before you risk your money and your health, check with Consumer Lab’s research.  There is a small fee (about $2.50 per month) for use.
