Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/20/2014 -- Although they are subject to FDA regulations regarding adulteration and misbranding, dietary supplements are not subject to the safety and efficacy testing requirements imposed on drugs.
Unlike drugs, supplements do not require prior approval by the FDA. This means that the manufacturer of a dietary supplement is solely responsible for ensuring that the product is safe before it is marketed. The FDA can take action against dietary supplements only after they are proven to be unsafe.
For some companies, this is a green light to do what they will with their supplements and hope they don’t get caught. It isn’t uncommon to find some companies cutting ingredient amounts to increase profits, adding unnecessary fillers and more, particularly with supplements ordered from overseas.
Most times, the only cost to customers is a lighter pocket or wallet for inferior quality goods, but sometimes there are more severe consequences.
“This industry oversight can cause real problems for the companies who are trying to do right by their customers and provide safe products,” said Michelle O'Sullivan, spokesperson at VitaBreeze Supplements.
Finding the right company can take time and be worrisome for those who are desperate for some relief through non-pharmaceuticals. VitaBreeze has heard the pleas of their customers and has started a strenuous and strict third-party ISO testing system for each batch of their products.
Each batch is tested with the latest equipment and exceeds industry standards for amounts. This way, it can be ensured that each bottle of VitaBreeze supplements is not only safe, but also contains exactly what is written on the bottle.
“For us, this is the perfect case of ‘what you see is what you get’. Although the ISO testing is not mandatory, we want our customers to find relief and more importantly, be sure their money is spent wisely,” said O’Sullivan.
VitaBreeze sells a combination Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM and Turmeric supplement specifically designed and formulated for joint health. The ingredients work in tandem to provide improved joint function, cartilage recovery and anti-inflammatory support.
