ConsumerLab.com Uncovers Defects in Over 30% of Supplements Selected for Testing and Finds Most Children's Multivitamins Exceed Tolerable Limits

White Plains, New York (PRWEB) March 31, 2009 -- Over 30% of multivitamins recently selected for testing by ConsumerLab.com were found to contain significantly more or less ingredient than claimed or were contaminated with lead.

Multivitamins are the most popular supplement in the U.S., with sales of $4.5 billion in 2007 according to Nutrition Business Journal.

Most Children's Multis Too High in Vitamin A
Three of four popular children's supplements selected exceeded tolerable intake levels for vitamin A as retinol. For example, at the suggested daily serving for children over four years of age, one product provided 5,000 IU of vitamin A. The Institute of Medicine recommends a daily allowance (RDA) of only 1,300 IU for children ages four to eight and an Upper Tolerable Intake Level (UL) of 3,000 IU. Excess vitamin A in the retinol form is of concern as it may, in the short term, cause nausea and blurred vision, and, long-term, lead to bone softening and liver problems. ULs for niacin and zinc were also exceeded by some of the products for young children. Excess niacin may cause skin tingling and flushing and high levels of zinc can ca
