Good News For People Who Use Supplements Daily
Patricia Zifferblatt | March 15, 2007

In 1998, the Nutrilite Company, a division of the Amway Corporation, petitioned the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to change the ruling pertaining to the nutritional labeling information on supplements. The FDA has reviewed the Nutrilite petition and on December 14, 2006, agreed that it will be a voluntary option for supplement manufacturers to list ingredients on a per-day basis rather than a per-serving basis:

Consumers may want information on the amount of nutrition provided by dietary supplements on a ‘per day’ basis. Without this rule, manufacturers are precluded from providing consumers with that information in the Supplement Facts label of their dietary supplements.

The regulation is now published in the FDA’s Federal Register and will make it easier and clearer for consumers to know just what we’re getting every day when we supplement.

So what does Better Life say about this new ruling? "Hooray! It’s about time!" Now consumers need only read a label before purchase--no need to pay attention to the advertisements promising results that can’t be substantiated by the contents of the supplement!
