In July, the FDA approved a batch of bulk health and nutritional supplements.
The FDA will allow manufacturers to sell products like this in the U.S. for about $150, a savings of about 30 percent from the retail price.
The products contain ingredients like Biotin, Calcium and Iron, which are important for healthy bones and muscles.
But the FDA also approved two products that use the vitamin D3 and the calcium supplements from the vitamin supplements company Biotex, which can be used to boost muscle mass and muscle strength.
The companies say they have a monopoly on the vitamin-dextran.
“Vitamin D is an essential component of the human body, and it is vitally important for health and well-being,” a statement from BiotEx read.
“As an industry leader in the development of natural products that are proven to be effective in reducing the incidence of chronic diseases, we feel that it is critical that all products made using vitamin D are safe and effective, as well as safe and convenient for consumers.”
In a blog post, BiotEX said its new products contain a “comprehensive list of essential ingredients” to make them “healthier, more efficient, and less expensive.”
