Re: Contract [supplement] manufacturer recalls products under more than 1,200 brand names

This incredibly long list of companys with products recalled is another wake up call to consumers. Buyer beware. Consumer Labs doesn't test every product on the market, but is a good place to start to determine which products contain what they should without contaminants.

I have woken up like a rocket two mornings this week after about 5 1/2 hours of sleep, which makes for rough days. I doubt than anyon...

Re: statins and antibiotics together

On the same day I had an appointment for a recurring sore inside my nose. It turned out to be a non-issue but doctor prescribed mupirocin antibiotic for two weeks. Mupirocin is typically a topical antibiotic, with less body wide distribution and much less possible negative effect on the gut. I like...
