Supplement Bombshell Coming

Supplement Bombshell Coming

Senator Durbin’s (D-IL) supplement regulation threatening 41,000 supplements is moving forward, and on multiple fronts. We must respond immediately. Urgent Action Alert!

For months now, we’ve been telling you about Sen. Durbin’s plan to impose new requirements on dietary supplements. These new requirements threaten more than 41,000 products on the market. If we want to preserve access to the supplements we rely on to stay healthy, we must contact our elected representatives immediately and tell them not to support this policy.

Here’s what we know. Senator Mike Braun (R-IN) has agreed to join Sen. Durbin in introducing a bill to require mandatory product registration for supplements; this morning, Sen. Durbin gave a speech introducing the bill on the Senate floor. But that’s not all. Separately, Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Chair of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, is independently moving forward with plans to attach mandatory product registration for supplements to the reauthorization of the Prescription Drug User Fee Act that must pass by the end of September. This is a common tactic in Congress to enact policies that could not pass on their own; simply sneak the policy into must-pass legislation and hope no one is paying attention.

As we mentioned previously, powerful forces on multiple fronts are converging to get this policy across the finish line. With Senator Braun, it now has bipartisan support; Senator Murray, HELP Committee Chair, supports it; President Biden supports it; and we know the FDA wants it. Only with a powerful grassroots response can we hope to stop this terrible policy in its tracks.

Our previous coverage details everything wrong with mandatory product registration for supplements. The problem is that many of your elected officials in Congress still think this proposal is completely harmless. Even though we know the bottom line is that if it gets approved, more than 41,000 supplements could be removed from the market.

Why are more supplement regulations such a priority for these federal authorities? Supplements are overwhelmingly safe. According to the FDA, in 2021, the agency received 2,400 adverse event reports related to dietary supplements. To put this in context, according to the FDA’s adverse event database, in 2021 FDA received a total of 2,333,453 adverse event reports. That means that dietary supplements make up 0.1% of the adverse event reports to the FDA. National reports consistently show zero deaths from dietary supplements; according to the FDA’s database, in 2021 alone drugs killed 187,750 Americans. That supplements are the products getting federal attention speaks to the power of the drug industry lobby and the willingness of elected officials and FDA officials to do their bidding.

Your House and Senate members need to hear from you, their constituent, that this proposal is an enormous waste of taxpayer dollars that you don’t want. We need to flood their inboxes with this message to be sure they hear it. Please share this action alert with others who care about natural health and access to supplements and ask them to also reach out to Congress and tell them to oppose this policy!

Supporters of this proposal are working quickly behind the scenes so there is no time to lose!

Action Alert! Write to Congress and tell them to oppose “mandatory filing” for supplements. Please send your message immediately. Please also forward this alert to three friends and ask them to act. We need all hands on deck to defeat Durbin.

  • As far as I am concerned this amounts to attempted murder…

    Perhaps the best course of action is to try these psychopaths for treason in a court of law, and then hang them from the neck until dead upon conviction.

    Durbin has been the guy who led the charge against supplements for years, as far back as the dietary supplement act. He is not a kindred spirit, but a pharma shill that needs to be voted out. He is a poster child for why term limits are needed. We need to stop him, once again.

    I would gladly take part in messaging our corrupt politicians, however, i am not going to provide my phone number ever!

    This is totally absurd to stop healthy supplements. Wise people know better. Big Pharma should be APPROVING these Supplements, NOT taking them off the market. They can also profit by giving permission to continue these supplements. Wake Up! People!

    Because I do not own a mobile phone, I am not able to participate in the Action Alerts.
    I do list a home phone number, and I feel that this new policy from Alliance for Natural Health is an unfortunate policy.

    Unless you make the mobile number optional, I will not be able to participate in the Action Alerts.

    Thank you and best regards.

    This is sort of like registering guns. If every gun owner registers their weapons, then when the government is ready to go door to door to take your guns, they will know who has them. Except with supplements, the registration of supplements is even easier, with the FDA simply going to those that compile the supplements in labs will be raided and told not to distribute anymore to pharmacies, even those online.

    I think it would help a lot of your organization and followers could push for less artificial fertilizers and more organic ones, so our foods would be more nutritious. Also, have them write to their elected officials and ask that we follow Europe’s lead on banning dangerous substances used on our fields and in our environment. I fear we will poison ourselves and our environment long before climate change will take us out, but sadly, our politicians are only focusing on the latter problem.

    Why do these people think they can control what I or anyone ingests into their bodies, from the vaccine to now this, pretty soon we are going to have to hide out aspirins from our overseerers… Sounds so ridiculous but this idiot is looking for a big payday from big pharmacy, he could care less about anyones well being…. We have to stop these people from letting big pharma rule our world… between big pharma, the CDC and the WHO and NIH we are not entitled to our own bodies…. and our government, the ones that are to be working for the people and their constitutional rights are stomping on us… STOP IT

    I wish I could sign this and pass it on to others, but I am in Australia. Supplements bought online from US are big business here – one company even has a warehouse in Australia so items are shipped faster. I know many would sign if they could.

    Is there a way to change this?

    Wow, the efforts of the power-hungry to deprive citizens of even basic supplements and force Pharma instead! Grotesque.
