It's time to take action in order to save our supplements. Use the following script to help you call our senator and personally let him know your desire to keep your supplements and defeat the Dietary Supplement Listing Act of 2022. Thanks for your help in our grass roots efforts.

Script for Calling Your United States Senator

As someone personally invested in the natural products industry its easy to see how nutritional supplements have personally helped thousands of people look and feel their absolute best. It would be unfortunate to make it difficult for people to get their hands on these amazing products that help enhance every area of their lives. I know it has personally helped me tremendously and I hope these impactful products can continue to help others. Let’s keep uplifting, impacting, and empowering Americans to feel their best!

Responsible natural products retailers and manufacturers go to great lengths to ensure consumers have access to safe products. We have built a strong reputation and brand loyalty with the millions of American consumers who use these products every day.

The proposed language in the Dietary Supplement Listing Act of 2022 requires pre-market approval for dietary supplements. The FDA already has access to information regarding who is making dietary supplements, where they are making them, what products are made at which facilities, when new ingredients are introduced into commerce, and whether any products are associated with serious adverse events.

I strongly urge you to oppose the Dietary Supplement Listing Act of 2022 and its inclusion in the FDA Safety Landmark Advancements Act.

Update: June 14--Contact Representative Dan Crenshaw

On June 14, Sen. Durbin's bill, which opens the door to severe restrictions on your supplements, was snuck into a larger legislative package without going through the proper legislative process in the Senate.

Now, it's up to the House to save our supplements from this attack. (We still face the potential attack from Durbin's stand-alone bill, S.4090).

Representative Crenshaw sits on the powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee and has the opportunity to help us stop this terrible mandatory supplement product listing bill we've been telling you about. 

Please send a message to him and ask him to sign on to a Congressional letter opposing the inclusion of this terrible supplement proposal. Your message can help us defeat this critical threat to supplements.

You can send the letter electronically here.

Or you can use the letter below as your script to speak with Crenshaw's offices directly:

Representative Dan Crenshaw
State Office: (713) 860-1330
Washington Office: (202) 225-6565

As your constituent, I urge you to sign on to the letter led by Congressman Jeff Duncan to ensure that unnecessary dietary supplement regulations are not inappropriately included in the FDA user fee legislation.

Dietary supplements are overwhelmingly safe, accounting for only 0.1% of adverse event reports to the FDA. Yet, a controversial and unnecessary legislative proposal to mandate supplements provide extensive product registration to the FDA has been attached to the FDA user fee bill in the Senate HELP Committee without ever receiving appropriate committee review and debate on the issue.

Please reach out to Will Lane in Congressman Duncan's office to sign on to this important letter to House and Senate leadership opposing the inclusion of this controversial supplement proposal in the FDA user fee bill.
