BUENA PARK, Calif., May 12 -- Nutrilite(R) Ginkgo Biloba and DHA was one of just three gingko biloba products to pass a recent ConsumerLab.com review of memory enhancing supplements.
"Consumer education is vital to the success of the entire supplement industry," says Byron Johnson, Nutrition Industry Relations Director for the Nutrilite brand and Chairman of the Council for Responsible Nutrition. "We at Nutrilite have always known that we have superior quality products, but it's gratifying to have that confirmed by an independent third party."

"Since 1934, Nutrilite has produced top quality dietary supplements that contain exactly what's on the label."
ConsumerLab.com purchased Nutrilite Ginkgo Biloba and DHA through the brand's exclusive North American channel, Independent Business Owners powered by www.quixtar.com , and tested it for its ginkgo biloba claim and other quality indicators in an independent laboratory blinded to the product's identity.
