4 of 5 Supplements in NY Stores don’t Contain Listed Ingredients

In recent years, health-conscious consumers have been doing a lot of reading. Rather than checking out the newest diet trend in a magazine or perusing a low-sodium cookbook, shoppers have been poring over the nutritional labels on their favorite foods.

Keeping track of what’s going into your body is a great way to stay in shape and maintain cell health, but what if some manufacturers were taking advantage of nutritional labels just to make more money? Unfortunately, if you take cell health supplements to replenish your body’s supply of micro- and phytonutrients, you might have been taken for a ride. According to a statement from the office of the New York State Attorney General, 4 out of 5 brand name supplements sold at major retailers through the state contain virtually no amounts of their advertised herbal ingredients.
