Executive SummaryMost muscle-enhancement nutritional supplements pass ConsumerLab.com's quality test. The company says July 21 that of 13 supplements tested, two creatine supplements and one branched-chain amino acid had problems. The creatine supplements were contaminated with creatinine, a breakdown product of creatine, likely because the products' liquid formula is unstable.

ConsumerLab.com did not identify the firms that requested tests
