New Study Finds Store Brand Supplements Are Garbage

Have you ever used a supplement that worked wonderfully? It relieved whatever was ailing you and worked as advertised, and maybe even put a little spring in your step. Afterward, did you happen to try a cheaper store brand version of the same supplement, only to find that it did nothing at all? Or worse, did it suddenly gave you an adverse reaction?

Well, you’re not crazy. It may not come as a surprise to many of you, that a recent study conducted by the New York attorney general’s office, has found that some store brand supplements don’t supplement much of anything. In fact, the study found that 79 percent of the brands tested, did not contain the herbs labeled on the bottle.

Walmart’s “Spring Valley” supplements: ginkgo biloba, St. John’s wort, ginseng, garlic, echinacea, saw palmetto were tested. Walmart had the worst results: of 90 DNA tests on 18 bottles, only 4% found any DNA from the labeled ingredient.

That's horrendous, but sometimes I buy kava kava as a muscle relaxer for my back. The stuff I used to get at Walgreen was nothing compared to the organic real stuff I got at the health food store. stoned.gif

Marketed corporate retail cheating the public greasing the FDA to sell garbage & poison.
Its most all GMO sugar poison in our food or placebos & meds vitamins that don't work for connected people they do work for disconnected people.
They give the body blockages so we can disconnect our minds from the body.
Some people love these meds to keep them disconnected since they cant face facts or pains telling them something is wrong. I/We are a vibrating electric flowing energy Human hybrid's that are struggling to align mind body & spirit .

You've got to get to know about the founders/management team at the company that makes the stuff.
I will swear by the mushroom products produced by a company named Host Defense, run by Paul Stamets.
The guy is a mushroom genius, and a very vocal advocate of the uses for mushrooms.
My wife is alive today because the cancer she has has been halted in its tracks by using this stuff.
Diagnosed 7-11 with stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer.
After a brutal year of ineffective chemo, still living a dignified and 90% functional life. (And her 90% is about quadruple of what most others live).

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

Took VitD-pills this past Nov-Dec.

Felt good.

Didn't at least do me any harm that I can tell.

Placebo..?

That's amazing Bohica. One would think she survived in spite of chemo not because of. And all respect to her for having the courage to try alternative medicine, most people just rely on what they're told and never do their own due diligence. hug.gif to her and you.

Magic mushrooms do have a ingredient known to cure much.
It comes out then gets pulled from news.
The FDA doesn't want drugs that cure only drugs that treat. Flyby drugs get the red tape drug market prime time commercials with killer side affects.
A rotation of pre big sales hype then small post lawsuits if you live.

Yes Magic mushrooms do have some interesting properties indeed, but I believe Bohica is referring to Chaga mushroom

PS. Both grow wild here

Reishi, Turkeytail, Cordycepts, and several others.
A 3 month supply costs about $100.00

Glad you found a shroom guy that knows his stuff. I hope you got her some CBD oil too, it's legal in the US and I'm going to get some for myself as I have some sleeping issues. Trying to get my mom to try it as well for her neuropathic pain instead of the Amitriptyline all her docs recommend and she refuses to take.
