Quality, Purity, and Potency of Nutritional Supplements

Recently, New York State Attorney General found 4 out of 5 supplements at big box retailers such as GNC, Target, Walmart, and Rite Aid were selling fraudulent supplements. Many times fraudulent supplements won’t include the actual ingredients that are listed on the label - in some cases have harmful ingredients such as allergens. The article aimed to tear down the entire supplement industry in an attempt to smear a bad name on a good thing. The truth is, supplements aren’t the problem it’s the source, and finding the best supplements requires a good reputable supplier. Supplements come in many forms and as you may or may not know some are effective and some aren’t. The difference is the quality and the potency.
