Problems with some multivitamins report finds unexpected nutrient levels, contamination MSNBC via 1/19/07 "Of 21 brands of multivitamins on the market in the United States and Canada selected by and tested by independent laboratories, just 10 met the stated claims on their labels or satisfied other quality standards...Most worrisome, according to president Dr. Tod Cooperman, is that one product, The Vitamin Shoppe Multivitamins Especially for Women, was contaminated with lead...On a positive note, several of the most popular multivitamins on the market did pass muster, said David Schardt, a senior nutritionist at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, a nonprofit consumer advocacy group in Washington, D.C. These included Centrum Silver, Member's Mark Complete Multi (distributed by Sam's Club), One A Day Women's and Flintstones Complete."

Being a member of ConsumerLab for a while, it is apparent that the name brands you see in your supermarket are some of the highest quality supplements you can buy. Of course there is a very limited selection. But for basic needs, look no further than a supermarket.
