Air Shipping Restrictions
Most of our packages are delivered by a combination of air and ground transportation. The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) restricts air shipment of certain items, which it believes could contribute to an onboard fire or other mishaps. Restricted items typically fall into one of two categories:
 Aerosol-type products in pressurized spray cans, such as hairspray and shaving cream.
 Products that contain flammable, volatile, or corrosive chemicals, such as nail polish and nail polish remover.
We're committed to getting your order to you as quickly as possible, but we also want to do it safely and responsibly, in compliance with DOT rules. DOT restricted products can only be shipped via ground delivery.
If your order is returned to us due to a banned/restricted products policy, a wrong address, refusal to pay customs fees, refusal to accept the order or because no one was there to accept delivery of your order, we will refund your credit card as follows: You will be refunded the total amount of the order, minus the shipping charge, and 20% of the value of the order, (as a re-stocking fee). We will also subtract any other outside charges DrVita has incurred during shipping, such as warehousing fees, return postage fees, etc.
If the cost to return the product to us is larger than the cost of the refund due, we will instruct the carrier to abandon the order and there will be no credit for the order. If the product(s) is seized by customs, there will be no credit processed for the product(s).
Before you make a purchase, please read our disclaimer regarding returned, refused or seized orders!

Credit Card Verification: First-Time Non-US Customers
For your protection and ours, it is important to make sure credit cards are being used by their proper owners. So, it is possible that customers ordering for the first time from DrVita may need to provide us with additional information to verify that you are the account holder. If that is necessary, you will be contacted by our verification team.
Unlike credit card purchases made by US customers, international orders cannot be verified electronically or by telephone. The extra step of gathering this information is necessary for your protection and ours, to ensure that you are the actual credit card holder
Not as of late 2018. Due to customs and other shipping-related issues, we terminated international shipments until we can ensure that customers all over the world can enjoy (and receive) our products.
Yes. Please contact Customer Service immediately after placing your order. We may be able to cancel it for you. If the package has already shipped and you wish to cancel, you will need to return the items to DrVita's warehouse in Las Vegas first. Return shipping fees are the responsibility of the customer.
Please contact Customer Service - we will provide you with return instructions.
Please note that you are responsible for return shipping fees. The refund amount (cost of product minus shipping) will appear on your credit card approximately 7 business days after the product is received by our warehouse.

Most capsules contain non-animal, vegetarian-based ingredients. Some ingredients on certain products cannot be manufactured effectively using vegetarian capsules - in most instances, we use a gelatin capsule (primarily bovine- or porcine-sourced).
Capsule size varies depending on the formula, serving size, and other factors. We use anything from 000, 00E, 00, 0E, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. For reference, capsule size 000 holds ~ 1,000mg, 00 holds ~ 735mg, 1 holds ~ 400mg, and 3 holds ~ 200mg.

Yes, the majority of our products in capsule form are safe to open and consume the powder. Mix the contents with food or a shake. Avoid opening anything with an enteric coating, delayed-release capsules or tablets, and soft gels.
No, we do not recommend ingesting Paradise Springs essential oils. Paradise Springs essential oils are 100% pure, which means they are not diluted in any way. Even the Paradise Springs blends are made of 100% pure essential oils.
Essential oils are highly concentrated and, therefore, quite potent. They are intended to be used in small amounts (a few drops at a time), and we always recommend diluting them in a carrier oil, water, lotion, or some other form of carrier. Most of our essential oils come with regulator caps or droppers to help you use them safely. Please read all of the Warnings on essential oil product pages and/or product labels before using.
If you experience an issue due to misuse, please call Poison Control at (800) 222-1222 (or online) or call 911. We love our essential oils and know they help consumers, however, essential oils can be dangerous (particularly for children) if used incorrectly.
Wildcrafted means that the plants from which the oils are extracted are harvested from their natural, or “wild” habitat. This process means there are never any unwanted chemicals such as herbicides or pesticides introduced into the plant’s growing life cycle. Care is taken to only remove the necessary plants, flowers, or branches, so that plenty remain to continue supply.
Expiration Dates & Regulations
Yes, of course! Expiration dates on dietary supplements are optional - the FDA does not require expiration or shelf-life dating to be listed on products (click here to learn more). If manufacturers include expiration dating, proven/supported data must be used to determine the dating. This data is identified during stability testing performed by manufacturers such as DrVita, makers of Nature's Lab.
We use expiration dating to represent a guaranteed length of time that our products yield maximum potency per the active ingredients listed on the bottle. In other words, certain herbs and minerals will likely achieve the same results for several years beyond the expiration date. It is possible that the potency may decrease slightly, but we cannot validate by how much of a decrease (or over what length of time). Most manufacturers simply do not have this type of data available, so instead we state that certain products may slowly lose potency over time.
Our products do not become dangerous or harmful to consume as time passes.
Yes. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates dietary supplements (considered food). A common misconception of consumers is that supplements are not regulated and therefore manufacturers can make any claims they want regardless of what is factual. THIS IS FALSE.
Most of the misunderstanding stems from the confusion between dietary supplements (meant to supplement one's diet) and drugs (medication). Drugs are available by prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) and are subject to more stringent regulations due to the manufacturing of synthetic goods meant to cause a physiological effect when introduced into the body. Dietary supplements are defined as a subset of food and are regulated as food, including amino acids, botanicals, enzymes, herbs, minerals, vitamins, or any other biologically active ingredient that benefits the user in the achievement of health or therapeutic goals.
DrVita follows the instructions established by the United States Government, specifically the Food and Drug Administration, or FDA. The FDA is responsible for ensuring that dietary supplements are safe and properly labeled in order to be sold to consumers in the US (click here to read What does FDA do?).
Dietary supplements are considered food and are thus regulated by the FDA (click here to read What does FDA regulate?). Refer to CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) Title 21, detailed below. In short, Supplements are Part 111, Food is 110 and 117.
FDA Title 21 CFR Part 110 - Current Good Manufacturing Practice in Manufacturing, Packing, or Holding Human Food
FDA Title 21 CFR Part 111 - Current Good Manufacturing Practice in Manufacturing, Packaging, Labeling, or Holding Operations for Dietary Supplements
FDA Title 21 CFR Part 117 - Current Good Manufacturing Practices, Hazard Analysis, and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Human Foods
DSHEA is an acronym for the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994, Public Law 103-417, 103rd Congress. The purpose of the DSHEA Act is to amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to establish standards with respect to dietary supplements, and for other purposes.
