Vitamin D Label Discrepancy

According to research published in JAMA Internal Medicine, the supplements we buy may not contain what they claim to contain. Researchers specifically studied the content of Vitamin D supplements, and they found that these supplements contained from 9%-140% of the listed dose on the label. Twelve different manufacturers of Vitamin D were examined.

A previous study by consumerlab.com in 2009 also found issues with supplements. Their results showed that one third of the multivitamins they examined had significantly more or less than what was published on the label.

Unfortunately, the supplement industry is not regulated, and they do not have to prove that their products are safe or effective. It is best to look for brands that are well known and have voluntary testing programs and approval seals.
