Here’s a little taste of what Nutritional Roots is all about:

Our Founder

We grow from the roots of our founder, Dr. Todd J. Pesek, MD.

He's far from a typical medical doctor, so to understand us, you need to understand him. We're honored to introduce you.

Our Journey

Nutritional Roots stems from 15 years of clinical experience and plant-based nutritional research. Let's show you how we got our start.

Our Beliefs

We don't compromise our values. There is simply too much at stake. Here's our philosophy and the principles that guide us.

Our Products

We spent 6 years researching and developing our award-winning product. Here is what makes them each so special.

Rules Are Rules

There are few specific details about how to properly discuss vitamins and supplements. In order to help as many people as possible, we need everyone to follow the rules.

The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) of 1994 governs the labeling of dietary supplements. Structure/function claims describe the role of a nutrient or dietary ingredient in affecting the structure or function of the human body. These claims are permitted on dietary supplement labels, provided they meet certain requirements and do not claim to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

Permitted structure/function statements:

  1. Descriptive claims: These claims can explain the role of the dietary ingredient in maintaining the normal structure or function of the body. For example:
    1. “Calcium builds strong bones.”
    2. “Vitamin C supports immune system function.”
  2. Beneficial effects: Claims that describe a benefit related to a nutrient deficiency disease, provided they also state how widespread the disease is in the United States. For example:
    1. “Vitamin C helps prevent scurvy, a disease caused by vitamin C deficiency.”
  3. General well-being: Claims that describe general well-being from consuming a dietary ingredient. For example:
    1. “Omega-3 fatty acids support overall heart health.”

Non-permitted structure/function statements:

  1. Disease claims: Statements that imply the product can diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent a specific disease or class of diseases are not allowed. For example:
    1. Not allowed: “This supplement reduces the risk of developing heart disease.”
    2. Allowed: “This supplement supports healthy cholesterol levels.”
  2. Drug claims: Claims that suggest the supplement has an effect similar to that of a drug or that the product is a substitute for a prescription drug are prohibited. For example:
    1. Not allowed: “This supplement works like [prescription drug] to lower blood pressure.”
    2. Allowed: “This supplement helps maintain healthy blood pressure levels.”
  3. Comparative claims: Statements comparing the effects of a dietary supplement to those of another recognized substance are not allowed if they imply disease treatment or prevention. For example:
    1. Not allowed: “This supplement is more effective than aspirin in reducing inflammation.”
    2. Allowed: “This supplement supports a healthy inflammatory response.”
