Supplement Warnings for Target, Walgreens, GNC and WalMart

Did you catch the news yesterday about supplements? Four retailers have been issued cease and desist letters demanding they stop selling certain supplements.

This is from the Washington Post:

A warning to herbal supplement users: Those store-brand ginkgo biloba tablets you bought may contain mustard, wheat, radish and other substances decidedly non-herbal in nature, but they’re not likely to contain any actual ginkgo biloba.

That’s according to an investigation by the New York State attorney general’s office into store-brand supplements at four national retailers — GNC, Target, Walgreens and Wal-Mart.

This is from The New York Times:

The New York State attorney general’s office accused four major retailers on Monday of selling fraudulent and potentially dangerous herbal supplements and demanded that they remove the products from their shelves.

The authorities said they had conducted tests on top-selling store brands of herbal supplements at four national retailers — GNC, Target, Walgreens and Walmart — and found that four out of five of the products did not contain any of the herbs on their labels.

Shaklee is about health and safety:

Shaklee is the number one natural nutrition company in the U.S. Why?

The logical reasons are many:

  • Over $250 million invested in clinical testing, research, and development
  • Over 83,000 tests annually for product quality
  • Over 100 scientific papers, 90 of them published in peer-reviewed journals
  • Quality far beyond industry standards

We think health is the most important thing in the whole world. Without it, you have nothing else.

So everything that goes into every Shaklee bottle is designed to make you healthy. And since Shaklee does it so well, you tell your friends about it.

Dr. Shaklee’s vision was to give people the wealth of health. We still think that’s the best idea to build a company on.
