Jordi Labs conducted an over-the-counter (OTC) multivitamin tablet USP 232 polymer analytical chemistry test to show how to find out if vitamins we take contain the nutrients advertised.

MANSFIELD, Mass., March 20, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The National Institute of Health estimated that Americans spend

more than $36 billion on multivitamin supplements each year. But do the vitamins we take really contain the nutrients that are advertised? And how do we know for sure? That's why Jordi Labs conducted an over-the-counter (OTC) multivitamin tablet USP 232 analytical chemistry test to find out.

Jordi completed a study to determine the elemental composition of the vitamin sample using Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) and Scanning Electron Microscopy with Energy-dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (SEM-EDS). This was performed by analyzing an over-the-counter multivitamin tablet and comparing the results with the manufacturer's label claim as well as to limits imposed by USP 232.

The study was important because it enabled Jordi Labs to see if the minerals were in the actual vitamins at the levels that appeared on the packaging. The bottom line is that elemental analysis is a powerful tool for characterizing the metal content of a sample but it is important to use the right tool for the right job.
