Know what's in your supplements

Recently there have been many issues with contaminated dietary supplements, which are becoming a vital concern for the public’s health and safety.  Metabolic Technologies, Inc. understands this concern and takes all the necessary precautions to ensure both safety and quality.  According to an article written by Pieter A. Cohen, M.D. in the New England Journal of Medicine, there are now 140 contaminated products that have been identified on the market and most of them are labeled as dietary supplements (article “American Roulette – Contaminated Dietary Supplements” can be read here).  The FDA’s detection of these supplements has been inhibited due to the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA), which allows many supplements to go to the market without strict regulation.  Cohen said many of the contaminants are toxic plant material, heavy metals and bacteria.  He said many of the contaminated products have resulted in serious adverse events ranging from dehydration to addiction.

Metabolic Technologies, Inc. (MTI) has a high standard for the quality and purity of the HMB it produces.  MTI tests HMB for heavy metals, such as lead and arsenic, E. coli, salmonella, DHEA, yeast and mold.  With all of these tests, MTI assures there are no contaminants in the HMB produced, so it is pure and safe to use.  There have also been various safety studies on HMB, which have shown no adverse effects.  To read about the research on HMB’s safety and how MTI produces only high-quality and pure HMB, visit!
