This NY Times article got me thinking:

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/15/opinion/sunday/skip-the-supplements.html

What do you think?

Do you know which companies are U.S.P. Verified?

Thanks!

Thanks Sam, but that was a joke based on the article from the OP, "Last summer, vitamins and minerals made by Purity First Health Products in Farmingdale, N.Y., were found to contain two powerful anabolic steroids"

This is easy to fix. Supplement with D3, CoQ10 (if you're over 30), Magnesium, and add liquid trace minerals to your RO water (I like Concentrace)

I think that optimally, you should get all your nutrients from food, but in a world with depleted soil and reverse osmosis water, some supplements may be needed to fill in the gaps.

I think I am switching to Purity First Health Products.

I have one simple rule of thumb. if you don't knwo where something came from, do not put it in your body.

I use Optimum nutrition vitamins and supplements. The company has just about every certification a supplement company can get. and has passed every spot analysis that consumer lab has conducted.
