It’s time for another post in our “Watchdog Series”.
This time, the crosshairs are hovering over Vitamin D supplements.
Two separate investigations have discovered alarming trends…
A Consumer Labs report found that 29% of Vitamin D products failed to meet label claims.
Independent lab testing of more than 30 leading products revealed major issues meeting label claims. 
- 29% of products tested did not meet labeling claims
- One gummy product made for kids had more than 250% of the Vitamin D listed on the label
- That same company made a gummy for adults with only 32% of the claimed Vitamin D content
- 2 products contained lead
- Several other products failed to list allergens that were in the products, while one failed to list government required safety claims
A Finnish investigation found that ONLY 8 of 23 products were within 20% of their label claims.
This second one is crazy.
According to Finland's Institute of Public Health and Clinical Nutrition, Evira (Finland's Food Safety Authority) tested 23 Vitamin D supplements and 3 more Vitamin D "sprays". 
2 of 3 sprays did not meet labeling claims.
Here's where it get's absurd...
15 of the 23 pill-based products tested had a variance of greater than 20% from their label claims.
That's a whopping 65%.
And the 8 “good products" simply had to be within 20% of the label claim to pass.
But the reality is, they could be anywhere between 0-20% variance from their label claims (details were not disclosed).
Our Mission: Change A Flawed Industry
This is a prime example of why the supplement industry drives us crazy.
This is why we started Natural Stacks - to produce high quality, premium supplements with full transparency and to bring a trusted product to the space that we were comfortable taking ourselves - and comfortable sharing with our parents, spouses, friends, and YOU.
It’s also why we hold our suppliers and manufacturers to a 0-3% variance standard. As you know, our last run of MagTech had a 0% variance!
We’ll be talking more about our Open Source Initiative and third party testing protocols very soon…
In the meantime, keep getting outdoors for optimal Vitamin D levels.
