Supplements are regulated by the FDA.
Under the 1994 Dietary Supplement and Education Act, the FDA has the right to regulate supplements. They are regulated differently from medications because they are substances normally found in the body or are derived from natural substances such as herbs. Hence, they are not held to pre-market approval standards that drugs are subject to.
Direct from Manufacturer.
We always buy direct from the manufacturer or trusted distributors with longstanding records in the natural industry. These distributors are approved by the manufacturers themselves to make sure that adequate quality standards exist. This eliminates the possibility of counterfeit product, a common problem with internet purchases of supplements. It also ensures that you will receive fresh product from temperature-controlled facilities.
