Supplements – You get what you pay for… Or do you?

Many times I’ve had people ask me why I am so picky about what supplements I take and offer to my family and clients.  I’ve gone the gamut over the years and determined that I will only purchase these from sources that I trust, COMPLETELY.  Shaklee is just that. This amazing company completes more than 100,000 quality tests on products each year to be sure they are what they say they are.

This company was founded on the principals to leave things better than you found them. Protect our clients, their neighbors, our environments, and our children!

Finally, our products are guaranteed to work!  100% No questions asked.  Granted, if you leave the bottle of supplements on the counter and never open them, then you cannot expect to see any difference.  But just like the thousands of people I know who have noticed a difference, you will too!Always_Works

Finally, we don’t just “say” something works, we do the clinical research, complete with third party reviews and many journal postings from our evidence based research and results!

Its sad when we hear reports of other companies not being true to their word, only true to their own bottom dollar. 😦  This was evidenced in today’s news reports. I have linked the article to the title below.

MAJOR RETAILERS ACCUSED OF SELLING
ADULTERATED HERBAL SUPPLEMENTS

(Date Posted: 2/3/2015)

On February 3, 2015, the New York State Attorney General announced that his office sent letters to four major retailers, GNC, Target, Walmart, and Walgreens, for allegedly selling store brand herbal supplement products in New York that either could not be verified to contain the labeled substance, or which were found to contain ingredients not listed on the labels. The letters, sent Monday, call for the retailers to immediately stop the sale of certain popular products, including Echinacea, Ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Saw Palmetto, Valerian, and Ginkgo.

The letters come as DNA testing, performed as part of an ongoing investigation by the Attorney General’s Office, allegedly shows that, overall, just 21% of the test results from store brand herbal supplements verified DNA from the plants listed on the products’ labels — with 79% coming up empty for DNA related to the labeled content or verifying contamination with other plant material.

The letters to retailers have been posted by The New York Times and are searchable by retailer and type of product.
