The dietary supplement industry is regulated by the FDA, however, the FDA does not approve dietary supplements before they go to market. This means that our supplements, and all other dietary supplements on the market, are not approved by the FDA. The ingredients used in our products must fall into one of two designated categories by the FDA: The ingredients must be marketed in the United States before October 15, 1994; if they were not sold before 1994, they must be "New Dietary Ingredients". New Dietary Ingredients must be submitted to the FDA at least 75 days before marketing and must prove that the ingredients are safe. As of right now, these are the standards that have been set by the FDA for dietary supplements. We make sure to follow all of the regulatory requirements set forth by the FDA. If you would like to read a little bit more about the regulatory environment surrounding the dietary supplement industry, here is a link to some FAQ's compiled by the Consumer Healthcare Products Association: http://www.chpa.org/FAQsDS.aspx#FDAApprove
