A new study reveals what's in your vitamin bottle, may not match the label.
Researchers with Kaiser Permanente tested Vitamin D pills sold in five mainstream grocery stores from 12 different manufacturers.
They found the actual amounts of Vitamin D in the pills ranged from nine to 140% of what was on the label.
When testing five pills from one bottle, most averaged closer to 100%, but one-third were still too high or low.
Experts say while no pills were considered dangerous, some had too little of the vitamin to treat someone with a deficiency.
The council for responsible nutrition suggests consumers purchase well known brands with voluntary testing seals.
