Quality problems found in some vitamin products


January 20 — Of 21 brands of multivitamins on the market in the United States and Canada selected for testing by ConsumerLab.com, just 10 met the stated claims on their labels or satisfied other quality standards.
 
Most troubling, according to ConsumerLab.com president Dr. Tod Cooperman, is that one product, The Vitamin Shoppe Multivitamins Especially for Women, was contaminated with lead.  Lead can cause high blood pressure and a variety of serious blood and other disorders.
 
Other products contained more or less of a particular vitamin than listed on the label. And some did not dissolve in the correct amount of time, meaning they could potentially pass through the body without being fully absorbed. 
 
"Half the products were fine, half were not," said Cooperman.  CIn the new report, ConsumerLab.com purchased a selection of the popular multivitamins on the market as well as some smaller brands and sent them, without labels, to two independent laboratories to be tested.
 
The ConsumerLab.com report also found that some vitamins didn't break apart within the 30-minute standard set by the United States Pharmacopeia. Nature's Plus Especially Yours for women required more than an hour to disintegrate, while AARP Maturity Formula took 50 minutes.  These products "could potentially go through your body without releasing all the nutrients," Cooperman said.
 
On a positive note, several of the most popular multivitamins on the market did pass muster, said David Schardt, a senior nutritionist at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, a nonprofit consumer advocacy group in Washington, D.C.  "I think this confirms the advice often given: You're safer choosing a well-known brand sold by some company or store that you have confidence in," Schardt said. "There are no guarantees but that's your best bet." 
 
Note regarding BioSlim products: All BioSlim products are rigorously tested for 100% accurate content and for rapid dissolve times. This is critical to make sure the nutrients you think you are taking are actually getting absorbed into your body.  To make sure BioSlim pills are always maximally absorbed, BioSlim avoids hardening its pills – a common industry practice.  As a result, sometimes one or two pills may break in transit, but that is a small price to pay for assuring that your body will actually get the nutrients it’s supposed to get.
