Dietary supplements—vitamins, minerals, botanicals, sports nutrition, weight management and specialty supplements (such as omega-3 fatty acids, glucosamine/chondroitin and CoQ10, to name just a few)—are regulated.
The dietary supplement industry is regulated on a federal level in the U.S. by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) as well as by government agencies in each of the 50 states. Learn more...
In addition, self-regulation by responsible companies complements and enhances government regulation. Learn more about the many programs developed by CRN with its members.
