SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Aug. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Due to high demand from consumers and popular media outlets, including Last Week Tonight with John Oliver and BuzzFeed, Labdoor tested Alex Jones's controversial Infowars supplements in the chemistry lab. Products tested to be "clean" based on drug and contaminant screenings, but claimed benefits were found to be highly misguided. Labdoor's full report on the testing is available here (http://ld2.us/LytksATX).
The following products were tested: Super Male Vitality, Super Female Vitality, Anthroplex, Child Ease, Survival Shield, and Oxy-Powder. All products were screened for heavy metals. Some were also tested for 200+ prohibited substances (including steroids, stimulants, abused drugs like cocaine, morphine, and ephedrine), sildenafil (Viagra) and related compounds, and/or caffeine. Oxy-Powder and Survival Shield's ingredients were also tested on the chance that they were actually those found in common supplements instead of the miraculous ingredients they claimed to be.
While products generally tested to be "clean", almost all of the products' claimed benefits were found to be implausible. For example, serving sizes were often magnitudes smaller than what they should be to accommodate effective levels of all their listed herbal ingredients. For Oxy-Powder and Survival Shield, marketed benefits were often false and even dangerous. Test results revealed that they were simply iodine and magnesium and come with risks of gastrointestinal distress and coma if they are taken unnecessarily.
Labdoor's mission is to give consumers unbiased, scientific information about the products that affect their health. As quoted in the report (http://ld2.us/LytksATX), Neil Thanedar, Labdoor's CEO states, "Labdoor is powered by consumer demand and scientific data, not marketing hype or political ideology… Our testing focuses on what's inside the bottle, and our data is based on these results only."
