The idea of testing supps is certainly worthwhile, but I like consumerlab.com better than labdoor.  Consumerlab.com costs about $3/month (no commercial interest) but:

 

1.  it provides research supported info on the supps (including updates sent via e-mail) e.g. uses, does it work, dose, adverse effects, etc.

 

2.  Summarizing results of supp labs tests into a bottom line percentage as labdoor does can be misleading.  Is there any difference for the person taking it in a supp rated 98% vs one rated 85%?  Better is what consumerlab does and presents results in table form with columns for e.g. claimed amount of supp, actual amount found, impurities, cost, etc.  Consumerlab does rate supps approved or not approved, and for those rated not approved they state the exact reason.  Figuring out why labdoor rated supps as they did in some cases is not easy e.g. even after reading Labdoors detailed results for nordic naturals fish oil, I still am not sure exactly what lab results yielded the purity and safety rankings.

What is the issue with nordic naturals?  I was just handed some from this place where I got an ultrasound.  I didn't sign up to read the article because I didn't want to give my info.

Nordic naturals is a very well respected brand (really something of a gold standard) and I've taken it for years (over a decade).  

 

I've figured out the details and posted in the other thread:
