Milk Thistle Supplement Far Surpasses ConsumerLab.com Quality Standards

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In sharp contrast to the 78% of consumer products which failed quality testing, ConsumerLab.com anonymously purchased, tested and recently approved the herbal supplement milk thistle sold by CNCA, a leading national distributor of premium dietary supplements designed to enhance immune system function and promote general health and wellness.

"ConsumerLab.com testing showed that CNCA Milk Thistle PRO had 129 percent of the claimed silymarin content," said Paul Van Ness, managing director at CNCA. "Other brands were as low as 20 percent. And our Milk Thistle PRO delivered up to 40 times more of the active ingredient than other approved products."

Milk thistle contains an active compound called silymarin, which studies suggest helps to support healthy liver function. CNCA volunteered to have its Milk Thistle PRO (http://www.cncahealth.com/milk-thistle.htm) anonymously purchased and tested by ConsumerLab.com, an independent testing company. Milk Thistle Pro was one of only a few products to have "met [its] label claim and ConsumerLab.com's standards for milk thistle supplements..."

"We are very happy our Milk Thistle Pro passed ConsumerLab.com testing," said Van Ness. "But we aren't surprised that it did -- our rigorous testing programs are probably the most stringent in the industry. Nor we were surprised to see that so many products were subpotent and/or contaminated. Contamination and subpotency is a huge, under-recognized problem in the dietary supplement industry."

Consumerlab.com has estimated that one of every four dietary supplements sold are subpotent, contaminated or both. Herbal products, such as Milk Thistle, have an even poorer track record.
