Drugs masquerading as dietary supplements

Some bad people within the industry have sold dietary supplements that have had drugs handed to them. We applaud the FDA for their work and pulling the supplements off the shelves. We just hope that the penalties become more severe so these people are put out of business for good. Those of us who love this industry despise people would take advantage of it for their own profit and gain. We would like to see the FDA funded to continue this work.

That said there are really three categories that are problematic in the industry. Those three categories are sports supplements, dietary supplements, and virility products.

Sometimes the problem is due to bad sourcing of the products. Quality manufacturers test products when they come in from China and you will find many manufacturers rejecting sometimes up to 50% of the product they source. Good manufacturers have the GMP certification.

Always look for well-known brands that feature a GMP certification to make sure you are getting quality products.

I have access to high quality sports brand that is not featured on our site as it is only sold through professionals. If you are interested, please feel free to contact me.

I suggest that you follow the FDA’s RSS feed on products that have been recalled.
