Following a recent test of 10 resveratrol supplement products in the market, ConsumerLab.com says that while lower-priced supplements passed testing, some higher-priced brands did not.

The report states that two products, which were among the most expensive of those supplements tested, provided only 43.4% and 86.7% of the amount of resveratrol claimed on their labels.

Moreover, the report states that resveratrol dosages varied greatly between products, between 50 to 1200 mg daily.

On the plus side, the report says that none of the supplements tested were contaminated with lead or cadmium, and that all tablets properly broke apart in solution.
