It’s important to know exactly what’s in your supplements and if what is on the label is actually what you’ll find in the bottle. You will want to know that what you’re taking is safe. In the United States, the laws governing supplements are not very stringent and not all supplements always fit that “safe” label. That’s why in the years between 2004 and 2012, the FDA (U.S. Food Drug Administration) recalled a lot of products and surprisingly 51% were supplements. Some “natural” supplements were found to actually contain pharmaceutical drugs.

It’s important to know exactly what’s in your supplements and if what is on the label is actually what you’ll find in the bottle. You will want to know that what you’re taking is safe. In the United States, the laws governing supplements are not very stringent and not all supplements always fit that “safe” label. That’s why in the years between 2004 and 2012, the FDA (U.S. Food Drug Administration) recalled a lot of products and surprisingly 51% were supplements. Some “natural” supplements were found to actually contain pharmaceutical drugs. For example, some Men’s Supplements had Sildenafil (Viagra) and some supplements for working-out contained steroids.[i] Here in Canada, we have more stringent rules. Health Canada closely regulates supplements and issues NPN (Natural Product Numbers) to those that pass their criteria. Once you see that NPN, you can take the supplement with more confidence. VitaTree supplements go through many pre- and post-production tests on top of the Health Canada ones. You can rest assured that you are getting the best quality products free of any contaminants and only active, whole food ingredients. We take great pride in offering our customers the very best ingredients in every single bottle. You get exactly and only what is on the label, no fillers or extra synthetic ingredients.
