What is a proprietary blend? FDA requires manufacturers to list all of the ingredients in a product on the label. They must be listed with the amount of each (in terms of weight) unless the ingredients are part of a proprietary blend. In this case, the specific amounts of each individual ingredient do not have to be listed, only the grand total. So let's talk about why companies use "proprietary blends". There are two main reasons:
1. Using a proprietary blend keeps formulas a secret so they cannot be stolen.
2. It is a deceptive tactic to disguise the amounts of true ingredients found in a product.
Always look for fact sheets like those on UXO's products. Everything is transparent. You know what ingredients you are taking and at the exact amounts.
Many formulas out there are under-dosed on the necessary ingredients that will deliver real results.
