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
