DSHEA 2.0 should better define ‘supplement’ – podcastDSHEA 2.0 should better define ‘supplement’ – podcast
The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) defined what a supplement is not, but the law should be updated to better establish the product category, says Herbally Yours’ Mark Potocnjak.
The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) gave supplements a defined pathway to market in the U.S. and has helped the industry flourish. But 25 years later, the law could use an update, according to Mark Potocnjak, CFO at Herbally Yours Inc. Specifically, in with podcast with Sandy Almendarez, editor in chief, INSIDER, Potocnjak thinks the DSHEA should be updated so it:
Better defines the category of “supplements”
Allows brands to include new ingredients in the Supplement Facts Panel and to outline efficacious doses in that panel
Allows supplements to make disease prevention claims, if the research supports those statements
This podcast was recorded at SupplySide East in April 2019 in Secaucus, New Jersey. Got feedback? Email Sandy at [email protected], or tweet to @NatProdINSIDER using the hashtag #INSIDERPodcast.
