Nutritional supplements are regulated differently from pharmaceuticals in the United States. Under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA), products like ours that are "dietary supplements" or contain a "dietary ingredient" are considered safe and may be sold unless shown to present "a significant or unreasonable risk of illness or injury." Therefore, unlike drugs, supplements may be sold without prior approval from the Food and Drug Administration. For more information on dietary and nutritional supplements, and the laws concerning these products, we recommend you read the FDA's guide entitled "Overview of Dietary Supplements". In its June 19, 2002 issue, The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) emphasized the need for doctors to become more involved in nutritional strategies. By understanding the science of supplements, physicians who recommend VitalRemedyMD's products are able to provide their patients with quality-controlled, validated nutritional formulations. In fact, every supplement produced by VitalRemedyMD is independently analyzed by an FDA registered laboratory for safety and purity. Also, through the appropriate use of blood and urine tests, your physician can offer specific supplement recommendations for you. For more information, please ask your doctor about VitalRemedyMD's unique approach to nutritional supplementation.
