Know Your Supplements

National chains such as GNC, Walmart, Walgreens, and Target are now under fire for false advertising on many of their herbal supplements. These supplements often contained NONE of the ingredients they labeled, but rather cheap fillers such as wheat and soy powder. The FDA has found an array of falsely claimed (hazardous) ingredients, be sure to check this New York Times article for a list of tested supplements.

The NYS Attorney General’s Office promptly took action by citing orders to cease and desist in the selling of these supplements.
