Food Supplements; Legal Regulations; Health Risks


The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics emphasizes that the best strategy based on nutrition is to ensure dietary diversity. Dietary supplements do not replace a balanced diet but can be used to support the diet, especially in cases of inadequate intake or increased requirements. With the rapid increase in the use of dietary supplements worldwide, they have gained significant economic importance in global trade. The definition of dietary supplements and the related regulations vary from country to country. Concerns about food supplements' quality, effectiveness, and safety are increasing. Situations such as mixing pharmaceutical active ingredients, metal contamination, microbial contamination, pesticide residues, and other harmful chemicals can pose health risks. Therefore, regular monitoring and ensuring the safety of food supplements are of great importance. Factors such as consumers not fully understanding the difference between food supplements and medicinal products, misleading advertisements, and irregular inspections make it difficult to question the safety and effectiveness of these products. Therefore, it is important to act consciously and carefully regarding the health effects of food supplements.
