3 Things Your Need to Know about Dietary Supplements
1.Limited Regulation Since 1994
Just recently, FRONTLINE aired a program on PBS stations, Supplements and Safety. The program exposed several problems due to limited regulation of the supplement industry, including tainted products and issues with popular supplements like Vitamin D and fish oil. In case you missed it, you can see it here.
2.Three Trusted Agencies Separate the Good from the Bad
What many people do not realize is that the FRONTLINE program did not discuss the three agencies that test the safety of dietary supplements on the market today. These three agencies show approved and non-approved products. To learn more about the three agencies, I found a peer-reviewed article from the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics that you can download. It’s called “Quality Certification Programs for Dietary Supplements.” Here’s the article. Quality Certification Programs for Dietary Supplements.
3. Approved Supplements Are Listed Below in a Research-Based Online Reference Guide
