Healthier Me: Inaccurate Supplement Dosing

Posted: Updated:


In Tuesday's Healthier Me, a new study reveals that your vitamin bottle's contents may not match its label!


Researchers tested Vitamin-D pills sold in five mainstream grocery stores from 12 different manufacturers and found that the actual amounts of Vitamin-D in the pills ranged from 9% to 140% of the amount given on the label.


When testing five pills from one bottle, most averaged closer to 100%, but one-third of the pills were still too high or low.

Experts say that while no pills were considered dangerous, some had too little of the vitamin to effectively treat someone with a deficiency.
