Organic Protein Powder Heavy Metals | Protein powders, Supplements and Quality

We continue to see issues with the quality of food, supplements, and medications grabbing the news. Just recently a non-profit group published a study on Protein Powders having heavy metal contaminants in them. This is extremely concerning when you are trying to do something beneficial for your health and you are actually causing more harm. However, it may be premature and there is some questions if there was any financial tampering in the Protein Powder study since clean label project has refused to release the actual report. This does illustrate the importance of knowing where your supplements, medications, and food are coming from. Make sure there is GMP certification and the company uses an independent lab to test the raw materials and the actual dosages of the product.

Furthermore, there is a concern falsely labeled products. We saw in 2015 large “cheap” retail brands came under fire for having no material in their products but simply fillers.

Finally, online vendors like has more and more vendors using counterfeit products which up to 25% may be coming from China. These vendors are selling expired products or tampering with the product by using a reputable company’s bottle and adding filler capsule, then resealing the bottles.

Please be safe out there. Make sure you are getting high-quality products that truly improve your health.
If you are a current patient we hope to have an online dispensary for you soon.
