ConsumerLab Finds Serious Problems With Certain Weight-Loss Supplements

March 3, 2010: 09:33 AM EST
New ConsumerLab reports on analyses of commercially-available chromium-based and other dietary supplements revealed the presence of the carcinogen hexalent chromium in three of six chromium supplements tested, as well as labeling and FDA compliance issues with the other products. ConsumerLab found that two 7-Keto DHEA supplements met quality requirements, but two other products contained as much as one-third less green tea than stated on the label. One unnamed supplement was also found to violate various (unspecified) FDA regulations. Among the stimulant-based supplements, ConsumerLab found that product labels were accurate regarding caffeine content, but warned that the caffeine levels were high enough to be a danger to health. The reports naming products and companies are available for purchase from ConsumerLab.
