QUESTION: Are your supplements safe?
ANSWER: Yes, we formulate our supplements with natural ingredients that have a history of safe use. However, everyone's experience with a dietary supplement is different, so please consult with your doctor before taking any dietary supplement.
QUESTION: Are your products regulated by the FDA?
ANSWER: All foods and dietary supplements are regulated by the FDA and manufacturers are required to ensure that they are safe for general consumption. However, the FDA does not specifically approve either dietary supplements or foods.
QUESTION: Are there mailing restrictions on your products?
ANSWER: Unfortunately, our supplements cannot be shipped to Nigeria, Austria, Germany, and Uruguay due to their strict customs regulations.
QUESTION: How will my order be shipped?
ANSWER: Your order will ship via the United States Postal Service (USPS). If your order is being shipped to a U.S. address, USPS provides tracking information. If your order is being shipped to a non-U.S. address, we are unable to provide tracking information at this time.
QUESTION: How long will it take to get my order?
ANSWER: Orders placed with standard shipping to addresses within the U.S. should be delivered within 7–10 business days. International orders may take up to 15 business days.
QUESTION: Why is there a lead warning on some of your product labels?
ANSWER: You may see the following label on our product(s):
"PROPOSITION 65 WARNING: This product contains lead, a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer and/or birth defects or other reproductive harm."
In the State of California there exists what is referred to as "Proposition 65." Proposition 65 is the California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986. Any company that operates in California, sells products in California, or manufactures products that may be sold in or brought into California is subject to Proposition 65. Since our products are sold in California, Proposition 65 applies to us.
Proposition 65 requires warning labels on any product that may contain any of 600-plus elements that the California Air Resources Board considers a carcinogen or a reproductive toxicant. These elements include lead, brass, PVC, and a multitude of other everyday elements.
Many of the elements listed under Proposition 65 are common everyday items-including naturally occurring elements such as lead, that often exist in trace amounts in nutritional ingredients as a result of the soil where they are grown. The list of elements keeps changing and is periodically updated. Elements are added to the list and some elements are removed. It is excessively difficult to keep track of the changing list of elements.
There are penalties for not complying with Proposition 65. Failure to label products may result in a civil penalty of $2,500 per day. If a company's product is sold or is purchased outside the State of California and brought into California, the company may still be found in violation.
Various trade organizations have issued notices to manufacturers warning of Proposition 65 and its implications. Included in the warnings were suggested methods of protection from Proposition 65 litigation and violations. Protection requires warning consumers about the possibility of dangers from products. A warning label such as the one we use is considered to comply with warning consumers.
The label does not necessarily indicate our products will cause you to contract cancer or reproductive harm if used as designed.
