What We Review
The dietary supplement industry goes largely unregulated by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). The FDA regulates dietary supplements under a different set of regulations than those covering “conventional” foods and drug products. Under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA):*
Manufacturers and distributors of dietary supplements and dietary ingredients are prohibited from marketing products that are adulterated or misbranded. That means that these firms are responsible for evaluating the safety and labeling of their products before marketing to ensure that they meet all the requirements of DSHEA and FDA regulations.*
FDA is responsible for taking action against any adulterated or misbranded dietary supplement product after it reaches the market.*
What this means is that a supplement is regulated only for its safety to the consumer and has not been tested for efficacy. Health Nutrition News helps consumers find the highest quality dietary supplements that will actually benefit their health.
With so many dieting plans available to choose from it can be confusing for a person to find one that provides noticeable weight loss. Additionally, some trends can actually be detrimental to overall health. Additionally, these diets often only provide temporary weight loss results and are unsustainable either because they provide little nutritional value or the calorie restrictions are too great.
Heath Nutrition News helps readers choose a diet that will work for them and can be sustainable for years to come. We analyze the nutritional value that a diet provides and give people realistic expectations of weight loss.
