Dietary Supplements and FDA

The US Food and Drug Administration regulates dietary supplements in several ways: FDA monitors marketing claims made by dietary Supplement companies. They make sure dietary Supplement companies do not claim their products prevent, reduce symptoms of, or cure diseases. Fda reviews and approves introduction of new ingredients to market by affirming them generally recognized as safe status, or as new dietary ingredients. If evidence indicates an ingredient is harmful, FDA establishes supplement label warning requirements and - if necessary - mandates removal of ingredient from the marketplace. Fda inspects manufacturing facilities to make sure they follow Good Manufacturing Practices. Fda GMPs cover everything from raw material verification to finished product testing and accurate labeling. When it comes to ensuring safety, effectiveness and quality, GMPs are perhaps one of the most critical areas of regulation.

Keep Up-to-Date on Tainted Products

Dietary supplements aren't regulated like pharmaceutical drugs, so that means they shouldn't contain pharmaceutical drugs. Yet over the last decade, more than 750 supplement brands have been found to be tainted with drugs, sometimes containing two or more hidden drug ingredients, new study finds. What's more, although the Food and Drug Administration identified these tainted supplements, less than half of these products were recall. That means that these products which are essentially unapproved drugs remain on the market, where they have potential to cause serious health problems, researchers, from the California Department of Public Health, write in a study, published today in the journal JAMA Network Open. Now, medical experts are calling on the FDA to take more urgent action to remove these tainted supplements from the market. The agency's failure to aggressively use all available tools to remove pharmaceutically adulterated supplements from commerce leaves consumers ' health at risk, dr. Pieter Cohen, general internist at Cambridge Health Alliance in Somerville, Massachusetts, write in the commentary accompanying the study. Cohen was not involved in research.

The Supplement Industry

Several observers applaud FDA's proposed policy changes, Post reports. Sandra Eskin, head of food safety project at Pew Charitable Trusts, said Gottlieb's statement is first time in 25 years that FDA's leadership has publicly committed to taking meaningful steps to improve dietary supplement oversight. Eskin add, FDA needs to know what supplement products each company make, as well as ingredients and copies of product labels. This information is the cornerstone of an effective oversight and enforcement system, and Congress should require that supplement companies provide it to agency. The Consumer Healthcare Products Association indicated its support for FDA's efforts to identify bad actors selling adulterated or misbranded dietary supplement products. Steve Misterpresident, and CEO of Council for Responsible Nutrition, which represents supplement makerssaid, " FDA shares our vision to further develop a thriving, innovative, and safe marketplace for dietary supplements. But others express disappointment, saying Gottlieb did not announce any substantial policy changes. Pieter Cohen, associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, say, FDA seems to be restating things they have been doing for years. Not making any changes. There is nothing short of here except for a big push. Peter Lurie, former FDA official who currently serves as president of the Center for Science in Public Interest, applauded the FDA's commitment to increasing enforcement action, but said he wants the agency to do more. Fda is hampered by terrible law and drastically limited resources within that there's only so much can do, Lurie say.
