It’s confusing enough to keep up with all the good nutrients and their scientific names.

Now thanks to the LegitScripFolks there’s a list of some scientific sounding names we’d better avoid altogether.

They share the common name for an ingredient plus the FDA’s Dietary Supplement Ingredient Advisory List. This should be your go to list when you want to check on an ingredient. 

The FDA keeps an ingredient monitoring list because believe it or not, some folks think making money at any cost is worth the risk. That’s where the bad actors wreak havoc on public health and on the reputation of legitimate, good manufacturing practices approved supplement manufactures who put safety and efficacy before profit.
