*BLQ: Below Level of Quantitation

Testing Methods:
Resveratrolproducts were tested for their total trans and cis resveratrol content. All products were first
analyzed in a independent laboratory using a HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography) assay.
Products not passing this initial assay were tested in a second independent laboratory utilizing a similar
HPLC assay.

Analyses for lead and cadmium were performed using an ICP-MS (inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass
Spectroscopy)
Disintegration of non-chewable, non-capsule, non-enteric coated and non-time-release formulations was
analyzed utilizing USP (United States Pharmacopeia) <2040> recommendations entitled "Disintegration and
Dissolution of Nutritional Supplements."

Any product that did not pass the testing was sent to another independent laboratory to repeat testing for at
least one of the criteria on which it did not pass. The identities of the products were not disclosed to the
laboratories performing the testing.

Passing Score:
To pass, a product must:
1. Must meet 100% of resveratrol label claims for the total amount resveratrol and specific
resveratrol forms. Total Resveratrol =
sum of (total free trans/cis resveratrol) + (total trans/cis
polydatin x 0.587) (note: polydatin glycoside is composed of 58.7% resveratrol)
2. Meet recommended USP parameters for disintegration for dietary supplements (excluding
capsule, enteric coated, chewable and time-release products).

Heavy Metal Contamination:


3. Must not exceed California Prop 65 levels for lead contamination in a recommended daily
serving and, in no event, exceed 2 mcg of lead in a recommended daily serving. (The State of
California has established its own strict standards for lead, including 0.5 micrograms of lead per
serving per day for foods and most supplements - although this is raised to 1.5 micrograms per
daily serving for calcium supplements. Products sold in California that exceed these levels are
required to bear warning labels).

4. Contain less than 0.3 parts per million (or micrograms per gram) of cadmium for dried raw herb
(World Health Organization, Quality Control Methods for Medicinal Plant Material, proposed
guidelines, 1998) or less than 0.1 parts per million for extracts. The lower concentration standard
for extracts reflects the ability to remove heavy metals such as cadmium during the extraction
process.
