"May", "Should", "Support", "Can" and similar descriptions of herbal products...

Structure and function language is a type of language used to describe the effects of a product on the body's structure or functions, without making explicit claims about treating, curing, or preventing diseases. This type of language is often used for herbal products that are marketed as dietary supplements.

The purpose of using structure and function language is to comply with regulations set by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other regulatory agencies around the world, which prohibit the use of drug claims for dietary supplements. Drug claims are claims that a product can treat, cure, or prevent a disease, which can only be made for drugs that have been approved by regulatory agencies for those specific uses.

Examples of structure and function claims for herbal products might include statements such as "supports immune function," "promotes healthy digestion," or "supports healthy joint function." These types of claims describe the effects of the product on the body's structure or functions, rather than making explicit claims about treating specific diseases.

It's important to note that while structure and function claims are allowed for herbal products marketed as dietary supplements, these products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

This is why our products are named and described as such. We know they work, all of our amazing return customers know they work, give them a try, you won't be disappointed!
