Premama believes in transparency with customers. Pursuant to DSHEA, FDA permits manufacturers to communicate to consumers how dietary supplement ingredient affects a structure or function of the human body. The manufacturer must have the scientific substantiation for any such statement. While citing the references on our website is not required, we believe that every Structure/Function statement we make should be supported by a peer-reviewed scientific study. We encourage our expectant consumers to educate themselves on the science of their dietary supplements. Ideally all dietary supplement companies should do the same. In compliance with DSHEA and FDA regulations, our labeling includes the standard FDA Disclaimer for supplements with Structure/Function statements, Caution statements to help you understand appropriate supplementation usage, and Warning statements where necessary.
