Quality of NSI Brand?

Does anyone have any knowledge of the qualtity/purity/accuracy in meeting label claims of NSI’s (Neutraceutical Sciences, Inc.) supplements? They seem to be the main brand that Vitacost pushes.

NSI is like Solgar – if you want a basic, bulk-type product, like some vitamin C with rose hips, or coral calcium, or maca, you can get all those basics from them.

Come on–do you think the average person has insight into the label claims of anything. I would assume label claims to be fairly accurate within the law guidelines. Check into brerakdowns that must beposted not just totals. Check serving sizes

But once again why is this site chosen for people to compare competitive products?

NSI makes basic, bulk stuff like mentioned above. They don’t make an Alpha Male-type products, or a Surge-type product or a Spike-type product, etc. They are not competing for the same dollars, period.

People might not know exact label claim info, but there is often general consensus, and often quite CLEAR consensus, that certain brands are reputable and trustworty whereas others are questionable at best, if not downright sleazy. That’s all. Don’t pull a muscle over it.

Call them and ask them to send you the lab assay on whatever product you are looking at. Given that its done by independent lab’s, it should give a good yay or nay for your product. Or try searchin the web for it.
