ConsumerLab.com Finds 27% of Vitamin C Supplements Don't Meet Label Claims


ConsumerLab.com, White Plains, NY, recently tested a variety of vitamin C supplements to be sure that consumers looking to reduce cold symptoms were getting the proper dose needed to ward off illness.
 
Testing of vitamin C supplements found that 27% of the products selected for review didn't contain the amounts of vitamin C listed on their labels. Two high-dose products contained about 40% more vitamin C than listed, and one had 15% less than listed. Taking too much vitamin C may cause stomach upset and diarrhea, and if used long-term, potentially, other negative effects.
 
Most adults need only 75 mg to 120 mg of vitamin C per day, which is roughly the amount in a glass of orange juice. Children need just 15 mg to 75 mg. A much higher dose (1,000 mg or more) taken daily throughout the cold season has been shown to reduce the symptoms and duration of a cold, which is why many products are designed to deliver amounts ranging from 250 mg to 1,000 mg per unit. However, side effects may occur when daily intake (including that from foods as well as supplements) exceeds just 400 mg for very young children and 2,000 IU for adults.
 
ConsumerLab.com also found that a common dose of vitamin C from a high-quality supplement can cost as little as one cent, or over one dollar.
 
The new report contains quality ratings and comparisons of 25 vitamin C supplements and explains:
·      Which vitamin C supplements passed testing, and which failed
·      Which high-quality vitamin C supplements are also lowest cost (as low as 1 cent per 500 mg)?
·      What vitamin C can and cannot do for your health
·      The potential advantages of forms of vitamin C, such as Ester-C, sodium ascorbate, and slow-release vitamin C
·      The value of additional ingredients, such as bioflavonoids (e.g., quercetin, dihydroquercetin, rutin, and hesperidin), often found in vitamin C supplements
·      The vitamin C dosage to help prevent or treat conditions such as colds, gout, and vitamin C deficiency
·      The potential side-effects of vitamin C and other concerns, including the potential for kidney stones and interactions with drugs and diagnostic tests  
 
Products in the report include 11 selected by ConsumerLab.com and 14 others that passed ConsumerLab.com's voluntary Quality Certification Program, as well as one other vitamin C supplement similar to one that passed testing.
 
The products included were: 
Bronson Laboratories Vitamin C Crystals,
