The Uninformed and Nutritionally Unaware

As an example some companies with products on store shelves added Devil’s Claw to their joint supplement. 

Granted, it was common ingredient in the 90’s (through mid-2000’s). However, during the investigation, MD’s Choice learned there was nearly 4,000 (yes, thousand) years of research on this herb, with very real drug activity. 

It is commonly used for pain reduction and anti-inflammatory agents by some companies with joint supplements, which it can do. But, more importantly, that particular herb was actively used (is still today, in some parts of the world) as ‘the abortion drug.’ It can spark uterine contractions, and in the late stages of pregnancy it is used to induce labor… but in the early stages, cause an abortion. (Hence the name, “Devils CLAW”).

Just think if you were TRYING TO HAVE A BABY… but having miscarriages, or other problems, because you were using a joint supplement with that ingredient.

Maybe you had an AKC registered dog, or champion breeding horse… but they couldn’t produce a healthy baby… while on some supplement containing Devil’s Claw.

It was interesting, back in the late 90’s through early 2000’s, we couldn’t find any products using that ingredient with any warnings on the label about NOT feeding to pregnant or breeding animals (or people).

So, MD’s Choice generically released the information (like above). Within a few weeks, a couple companies with products containing Devil’s Claw actually threatened to sue. Demanding we retract the press release, and information. We laughed, and invited them to, because SCIENCE WAS ON OUR SIDE! When they finally (and actually) saw the science… they retracted their threats… and quickly added the warnings to their product labels.

Another important example was calcium in supplements.

For hundreds of years, they weren’t safe in nearly all supplements and manufactured products containing added calcium; specifically, the calcium carbonate. Which was commonly used in supplements, and made from limestone, bone meal, or oyster shells, and when FINALLY TESTED, found to contain high levels of lead & mercury.

In 1997 the government took action to reduce lead levels in all existing human products containing calcium. Yet, today, over half way through 2017, animal products only ‘have to’ test for E.coli and Salmonella, the heavy metals (in animal products) aren’t regulated, nor are any tests required.

MANY TO MOST non-calcium, supplements in the human world don't legally have to be tested for lead, much less the other heavy metals. But God help you if you try to release any product going into a FOOD ANIMAL (chicken, sheep, swine, diary, and bovine in particular) MUST BE tested for additional things. Yes, products use ON FOOD ANIMALS are more strictly regulated and controlled than the same product labeled for the human market. Wrap your head around that...  

The founders of MD’s Choice defined 30 MORE common contaminants in 1995, which every batch of their products would be tested for, even their animal products.

This list included lead, mercury, aluminum, barium, cadmium, mold, arsenic, and a bunch of other things that can really hurt a body over time.

Today, every batch of the MD’s Choice products are tested three times: in bulk (before any ingredients are actually used), at blending, and again after bottling (randomly).

The products MD’s Choice has truly are the top of their class, and often far stronger (bio-availability wise) than the competition, for competitive prices.

Science, especially nutrition, is a vital part of life... living... and longevity. Nothing on this website, or any other, should ever be given more power or authority than your actual doctor: that has seen the body, ran the tests, poked, prodded, x-rayed or ultra-sounded when necessary, thoroughly examined, and genuinely evaluated the history of the patient. Part of the reason the FDA has regulations and requirements, such as “These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent disease.” is to help protect the consumer from false claims, 'magic cures,' 'miracle claims,' and dangerously avoidable contraindications (side-effects). We understand and agree!

Drugs should have quality control regulations, safety requirements, and that includes all plant derived drugs (herbs) which have their place, but seldom ever in a 'daily supplement, intended for prolonged use.'  Supplements should be tested for all the common contaminants, including heavy metals, which MD's Choice has been doing since the very beginning.

Nutrition is key, good nutrition important, but even the best nutrition doesn't replace the hands on experience of doctors able to evaluate the individual on a case-by-case basis. There are far too many ailments, types of diseases, genetic issues, contributing factors, and medical issues producing side-effects and symptoms for any responsible person - especially a doctor or healthcare related professional - to do more than generalize or suggest some elevated or minimized concern, without in-person testing and a real world exam.

Our products are great, and have had the best Results Based Guarantee in the nutritional industry for over 23 years, which should tell you a whole lot about us and how we do business. WE CARE... If you have a serious concern, or life threatening situation, PLEASE CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR, or a specialist that can see the body, do the tests, and evaluate the individual situation.   Our Privacy Policy
