Are Your Vitamins Made in China?

By: Bruce Brightman


Let me start by saying more than likely if you are taking a big National Brand vitamin, then the answer is yes! Why? It comes down to money really. Here is a breakdown of how the vitamin business is operated and why knowing where your vitamins are coming from is a big deal!

Here is one of the many major problems when dealing with China: China itself owns all of these vitamin companies in one format or another, whether it be local gov’t or the national gov’t. This means that regulations don’t matter, they produce inferior supplements and no one is doing anything about it, we just keep taking them because they are cheaper.

United States Vitamin / Supplement Companies say they test all the nutrients that they get from China, but the reality is, it is an impossibility to run that many tests, environmental toxicity tests, other drugs from waste run off… FACT: Only 2 percent of all imported vitamins and other supplements are inspected. Why? Vitamins and supplements are classified as “food” by law and therefore not subject to any tough regulatory scrutiny.

China is the most polluted nation on the planet (by far), yet many fruits, vegetables and herbs are grown in China and exported to North America for use in our natural products. China is a nation that has virtually no environmental regulation enforcement. In China, anything goes: You can dump mercury into rivers. You can spray raw human sewage sludge on crops. You can produce factory-made chemicals and blow the waste products right into the air through smokestacks. In China, many rivers are so toxic that, from time to time, they actually catch on fire and burn. Their food quality is the worst in the world as well. Half of the country’s major water bodies are polluted, as are 86 percent of city water bodies. Pollution is largely caused by the country’s numerous factories, which rarely have equipment for treating pollution. Seventy to 80 percent of the country’s industrial waste is directly emitted into rivers.

Here are some interesting statements:

FDA government regulator Steve Mister is quoted by the NY Times: "We walk a fine line. We want to protect consumers, but we also don't want to alarm consumers so they stay away from the whole marketplace. We are concerned that if we alert consumers, we may unnecessarily drive them away from the marketplace. We could make them afraid to take legitimate dietary supplements."

So people can die from taking the wrong supplements, but we don’t really want to scare anyone….hmm...

Here is another one:

Ms. Singer of the New York Times quotes FDA official Michael Levy as saying, "These products from China may work, but if you take them, they could kill you."

So why would a vitamin company use nutrients from China? Does anyone really trust China products, much less food or vitamins? Profit!

The nutrients vitamin companies buy from China are about 20% the cost, so instead of it costing $4 to buy a quality fortified ingredient, it may cost .75c and many times far less.

Substandard and fake goods are so common in China that the Chinese people themselves have an expression, it is called: Heixin (pronounced hey-sin), to describe those who make, sell or profit from them. Heixin roughly translates as "black heart".

FACT: Chinese imports accounted for more than 60 percent of the recalls announced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission this year. From toothpaste to toy trains to tilapia to prescriptions, to vitamins and so much more.

While doing this research over the last 20 years, it has been both disheartening and motivating. I am more motivated now than ever to continue to create vitamins and supplements that work and are safe for my family and yours.
