Don’t you wish we existed in a society where we could trust everything on the shelves at our local shopping centers? Unfortunately, there are many factors that go into what ends up in stores that may not be the best for us. These include profits, lobbying, and perhaps oversight of the quality of the products.
This is a bit of disturbing news as the stores containing the following products are mainstream places that most people frequent, but we should all know about it. Walmart, Walgreens, GNC, and Target have all been wrapped up in selling the following “supplements” that have been found to contain some very suspect ingredients.
Some of the filler ingredients in certain supplements include:
These four popular stores that have been identified as selling these particular supplements that contain these cheap filler substances are as follows:
1. Walmart’s Memory-Boosting Ginko Biloba
This was a hit at Walmart. Please check your shelves if you have this because it claimed to be gluten-free but contains elements of wheat and radishes.
2. Walgreen’s Ginseng
This supplement has been found to contain almost no Ginseng whatsoever, and also determined full of garlic and rice. Simply filler material.
3. Target selling St. John’s Wort, Ginkgo Biloba, and Valerian Root
Several “herbal” products at Target were found to contain no herbal ingredients whatsoever. They ended up being full of carrots, peas, beans, and rice.
4. Some of GNC’s Herbal Supplements
A few of GNC brand supplements were discovered to have peanuts, nuts, and soybeans. This can be a serious issue for those allergic to such ingredients.
This is quite obviously unacceptable for big box stores such as the aforementioned ones to sell products that have been determined to falsely advertise what is in them. Please dispose of these products if you have purchased them.
