What are the concerns about food supplements?

Each alimentary resource destined to consumers, as food supplements, must comply to regulatory requirements enacted by current government. However, there are some concerns related to food supplements consumption.

First, some food supplements on markets are not systematically subjected to a scientific assessment aiming at proving efficacy. The responsible entity is the distributor, which has to respect the current norms.

Moreover, as with any other forms of medication, overdose or over consumption is not recommended, as they could lead to serious consequences on consumers’ health.

Therefore, it is recommended that you check with your healthcare providers before using any supplements to stay informed and avoid any interaction with your current medications.

Authorities remind that some risks related to purchases on internet could occur.
