It has been more than 12 years since the Dietary Supplement Health and Education
Act (DSHEA) of 1994 was passed, legislation that has enabled millions of peoples
to enjoy access to safe, effective and affordable dietary supplements. In the United
States, dietary supplements are substances you eat or drink. They can be vitamins,
minerals, herbs or other plants, amino acids (the individual building blocks of protein),
or parts of these substances. They can be in pill, capsule, tablet, or liquid form.
They supplement (add to) the diet and should not be considered a substitute for food.Nearly
all Americans have benefited from dietary supplements -- such as vitamins, minerals,
amino acids, herbs or other botanicals. Surveys estimate that more than 70 percent
of the U.S. population -- seven out of ten Americans -- use dietary supplements as
a safe, effective and affordable way to maintain good health and augment inadequate
While a good diet is the foundation for better health, even the most well-informed
and well-intentioned consumers don't always eat the way they should. Supplements
are easy to add to our daily diets, and this is often the first step that many people
take toward greater nutritional awareness and the adoption of other healthy lifestyle
choices. Whether taking a multivitamin, herbal product or specialty supplement, people
can and do live healthier lives by supplementing their diets.
Currently, there are approximately 17,000 health product stores in the United States
making these safe, effective and affordable supplements accessible to all citizens.
Supplements also are sold in mass-market outlets, including drug stores, supermarkets
and super stores, and are available through direct marketers and the Internet.
