NOW’s Response to the Department of Justice Press Conference

On November 17, the United States Department of Justice, along with the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), Federal Trade Commission (FTC), The Department of Defense (DOD), United States Postal Inspection Service (USPIS) and the Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), announced a sweep of civil and criminal actions targeting unlawful dietary supplement makers and marketers. NOW applauds the collaborative efforts of the federal agencies to enforce the laws designed to protect consumers from companies that make false claims and use hidden, synthetic and dangerous pharmaceutical ingredients, claiming that they are supplements. These products are not nutritional dietary supplements.

At NOW, producing safe and effective supplements of the highest quality is our top priority. We use published research to guide product development and conduct more than 16,000 tests on raw materials and finished products each month in NOW’s in-house laboratories to ensure that what’s on the label is in the bottle.
