courage does not always roar. sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "i will try again tomorrow." ~mary anne radmacher

Never, for the sake of "peace and quiet," deny your own experience or convictions. ~Dag Hamma

And then the day came, when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ~Anais Nin

That link didn't work for me, but thanks for including it.
Might be too much time has elapsed or simply my connection here.

Consumer reports are also available for an annual fee, you can subscribe to their magazine or get to their info online.

Or you can go to your public library to check it out. They do quality control on a variety of household products.

As far as vitamins are concerned their rubric is making sure the vitamins dissolve in a 30 minute period of time, are free from impurities,contain what they're supposed to contain, and are at the potency on the label.

One way to assure that your supplement is the correct potency is to see if its tested by an independent lab. Best known are USP (United States Pharmacopeia) or GMP(Good Manufacturing Practices) labels.

As far as I know, Consumer Labs doesn't get into whether or not a supplement is worth taking.... for that you'll have to go the the Examine.com site.

Thx everyone for reading and contributing.

Good Morning, Team!

Found this wonderful reference for supplements and wanted to share.
Many of us take supplements, this site has the clinical trials to back them up or discredit the claims... so check here before ordering rather than after.

Examine.com goes into quite a bit of detail as to the chemical structure of the supplement, as well as its suspected pharmaceutical action. It also rates the supplement on a variety of parameters.

But don't let that scare you!

They also have a monthly newsletter which I signed up for, but have yet to receive.

Here's the site addy:

Know what you're taking... take care of you!
