How Our Products are Manufactured
Our products are manufactured and private labeled by one of the pioneers in the natural products industry. We knew their 50+ years of experience and credentials were exactly who we wanted to private label the products for The Arthritis Health System.
They have grown to become one of the natural product industry’s most recognizable brands, providing one of the most extensive lines of natural products available.
We also chose to private label our collection of products because we believe we have a unique story to tell and valuable information to share with people who suffer from arthritis. We hope our story resonates with our audience and they will become customers. The natural supplement industry is a 100+ billion dollar a year industry, so we realize consumers have a lot of options. Our program and products are tailor made for people looking for natural options to help manage the pain and discomfort of arthritis.
Our private label contract prohibits us from disclosing our manufacturer, however, the information below will hopefully make our customer base feel comfortable that they are buying the highest quality supplements available in the United States.
How the Natural Products Industry is Regulated
The freedom to purchase dietary supplements and natural health products referred to as “health freedom,” your right to choose vitamins and other nutrients in a supplemental form wasn’t guaranteed until 1994, with the passage of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act, commonly known as DSHEA.
DSHEA is the main federal law that governs the natural products industry. Contrary to some media reports, our industry is well-regulated under these governmental regulations.
DSHEA is the most basic of several laws that give the federal government the means to properly regulate dietary supplement manufacturing, and to monitor and remove any products found to be unsafe, improperly labeled, or that make inappropriate health claims.
Under DSHEA the regulation of dietary supplements falls between foods and pharmaceuticals. Supplements are more strictly regulated than foods, but appropriately not as strictly regulated as more-dangerous pharmaceutical drugs. It also regulates the introduction of new ingredients without giving the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) the ability to decide in advance which products can be manufactured and sold.
