Quality of supplements

Postby hill dweller » Sun Aug 27, 2017 2:07 pm

I tried using the search function but could not find a prior post that recommended a subscription-based website for an independent lab that tests various supplements to confirm quality. Help?

ConsumerLab and LabDoor are two agencies that test independently, and charge for their reports. Here's an article about them, and also about NSF and USP, which are nonprofits that independently certify and verify ingredients in some supplements.

(I am not familiar with LabDoor, but I have been a member of ConsumberLab in the past. Very impressed with their reports.)
