About Supplements


For thousands of years people have been using plants and herbs as medicine, but seeing though the herbal and supplement market has not be subject with the same scrutiny that medication receives, it’s extremely important for you to do your own research, so that you know exactly what you are paying for.

The Vitamin Webstore Always Suggest That You Ask Your Doctor Before You Order:

We feel that it is always best to check with your doctor first before putting any kind of vitamins or supplement into your system. One question you have to ask yourself is who is responsible for the safety or the effectiveness of the products in mind? The answer to this is that vitamins and supplements are not approved by the FDA in regards to the effectiveness nor safety of the product, but if should said product have a new ingredient placed into it the FDA will then review it, but this by no means should be mistaken as approved by the FDA. Manufacturers are held responsible to make sure that the products are at a level of quality standards and this includes keeping them free of contaminants or impurities and proper labeling of the products. Now if it should be found that the products are unsafe or if the product claims are misleading and found to be false then the FDA can take them off the market.

Here at the Vitamin Webstore quality is the first thing we make sure that we get right and that our manufactures reach and exceed the federal regulations that are set in place. This to us is more than just checking on a new finished product, but we demand and make sure that quality control is set into place with each step of the production and this goes in place for the raw materials, mixing, weighing, tableting, encapsulation and bottling. There is always a quality control expert that is found on the production floor to keep sure our products are pure in nature, strong and composition. We found all of these steps just as important as the next because we enjoy helping people with their health issues and want to make sure that we are providing the best quality supplements and vitamin that we possibly can.
