Why Nutraceuticals Need Custom Labels

Nutraceutical products are mainly used for nutrition and health purposes. Nutraceuticals can help delay the aging process for adults, increase life expectancy, or support the functions of the body. These products are marketed to provide physiological benefits or protection against disease, which means they may be subject to FDA regulation. When making nutritional, medical, or health claims, it’s important that the product label is properly written and designed to maintain regulatory compliance. 

Display Nutrition Facts and Important Info

Since nutraceutical products are used to improve health, their labels must be informative. They display supplement facts, suggested use, warnings, amount per serving, any other critical information. Presenting inaccurate or insufficient information could result in claims and lawsuits, which may lead to severe consequences for your business. We’ll make sure your label complies with FDA requirements. You can trust our team to design and print your custom label with thoroughness and accuracy.     

Custom Made to Fit Your Product Size

Nutraceuticals come in different shapes and sizes. You need a label that wraps around the entire exterior and helps you stand out from the competition. Whether it’s for a small vitamin bottle or a large supplement container, Label Solutions can deliver a custom label that fits your particular product and gives you a competitive edge.
