Biohacking Supplement. Many consumers question the efficacy of nutraceuticals, while others call them miracle drugs. At KIYA, our focus is on the overall well-being of our customers. As such, we take careful steps to comply with all FDA requirements regarding Biohacking supplements. Although it’s true that the FDA does not require nutraceutical manufacturers to verify the health claims on their product labels, one thing is clear: the FDA will take action against nutraceutical companies that claim to cure, treat, or mitigate any number of diseases.
The reason? Such a claim would designate dietary supplements as drugs and therefore, violate the articles of section 201(g)(1)(B) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the Act) [21 U.S.C. § 321(g)(1)(B)]. Products may not be sold as drugs without prior approval from the FDA, as described in sections 301(d) and 505(a) of the Act [21 U.S.C. §§ 331(d), 355(a)].
At KIYA, we clarify that the FDA has not evaluated the statements on our product labels. Our products are not drugs and therefore, are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. However, our products can reduce the risk of certain conditions. Where applicable, you will see links referencing clinical studies that support our claims. If you are thinking of adding nootropics or nutraceuticals to your diet, we advise thorough research on your choices. If you have any questions, we are happy to provide answers.
