Dietary Supplements Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis
Dietary supplements are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN). Except in the case of a new dietary ingredient, dietary supplements do not need approval by the FDA before being marketed. Under DSHEA, manufacturers must assure that the dietary supplements it manufactures or distributes are safe and that any claims made about them are demonstrated by sufficient data to show that they are not false or misleading.
DSHEA influences the manufacture of dietary supplements by setting forth a number of rules and guidelines. These include: the establishment of a new plan for assuring safety, nutrition and ingredient labeling specifications, outlining directives for marketing literature, regulation for the use of claims and nutritional support statements, and grant to the FDA the authority to establish good manufacturing practice (GMP) regulations.
