Dietary supplements have gone mainstream. More than three-quarters of American adults take dietary supplements regularly. Today, the supplement industry is growing in popularity and is worth $122 billion by one estimate. The National Institutes of Health (NIH), which maintains the Dietary Supplement Label Database, calculates that at least 76,000 different dietary supplements are on the market today.
These products, which can include anything from multivitamins to botanicals, are treated differently than food and beverage products, even though the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) still regulates them.
As a result, several different regulations govern the production, marketing, and sales of this growing product niche. As consumers increasingly flock to dietary supplements, regulators have started taking a close look at them, from ingredients sourcing to label claims.
A robust, digital document management solution can help manufacturers and suppliers stay on the right side of the law regarding dietary supplements.
