BOCA RATON, Fla., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ --ConsumerLab.com, LLC claims to be a leading provider of independent test results and information to help consumers and healthcare professionals evaluate health, wellness, and nutrition products. But Renaissance Health Publishing, LLC -- the makers of Revatrol, a red-wine 100MG resveratrol supplement -- is confused and disappointed as to why a recent study by ConsumerLab.com on red wine supplements analyzed a formulation of Revatrol that has been out-of-date for months.
"Not only did they test an obsolete formulation, but Dr. Tod Cooperman of ConsumerLab.com publicly disparaged our product. He insisted our product name implied that it contained resveratrol, but that according to their analysis it contains very little. Dr. Cooperman's statement was an outright misrepresentation," says James DiGeorgia CEO of Renaissance Health Publishing, LLC.
The truth about Revatrol, which ConsumerLab.com would have determined
had it exercised adequate due-diligence and tested the current formulation,
is that Revatrol contains:
-- 100MG of Actual Resveratrol
-- 100MG Alpha Lipoic Acid
-- 100MG Acetyl-L-Carnitine
-- 100MG Quercetin
According to Renaissance Health, two weeks ago they called on the for- profit laboratory to remove the information ConsumerLab.com currently portrays for Revatrol from its study, and to retest Revatrol's current product, which has been on the market for more than nine (9) months. ConsumerLab.com instead added a notation saying the formulation tested was discontinued.
In the course of Renaissance Health's investigation into this matter and into ConsumerLab.com, they've posed questions that Dr. Tod Cooperman, M.D., president of ConsumerLab.com, LLC, has simply ignored.
"We believe that any organization claiming or implying to be an independent consumer advocate should have no problem answering the basic and simple questions we've asked," says DiGeorgia.
"Our questions go right to the heart of the matter at hand-credibility," explained DiGeorgia. DiGeorgia says the questions that ConsumerLab.com has ignored are:
***Question 1: Is ConsumerLab.com actually a lab or does the company contract outside labs to conduct product testing?
"How can ConsumerLab.com claim to be independent if it accepts fees, accepts advertising and charges $3,000 to $4,000 for laboratory analysis that can be obtained for $400 to $800 from other reputable testing labs?" asks DiGeorgia. "The very name of the ConsumerLab.com implies that this is a lab, yet when we asked whether ConsumerLab.com is actually a laboratory we have gone ignored for many days."
***Question 2: Will ConsumerLab.com please make public all monies received from all companies and persons connected with any and all products they have tested?
"Shouldn't a company that claims independence be willing to voluntarily open its records and reveal what money it's received and from who?" asks DiGeorgia.
***Question 3: Why is ConsumerLab.com a for-profit company instead of a non-for-profit?
"ConsumerLab.com has subscription sales that should be able to support their business model. Why accept any monies from companies that have products which have been or are going to be tested?" wonders DiGeorgia.
"I think it is intellectually dishonest to claim independence, but still accept monies from the companies whose products they test. Moreover, the media has been accepting ConsumerLab.com's testing results without asking these key questions. It's crazy," concludes DiGeorgia.
