Dietary Supplements – Not Risk-Free

Do you take dietary supplements?

Are you considering taking a dietary supplement that says “all natural” because you want to avoid chemicals or prescription medications or anything synthetic?

Dietary supplements are not risk-free and may be harmful and may also not have the effects that they are claimed to have – so be informed when making a decision to buy a supplement.

Here’s why:
“All natural” on the bottle is no guarantee that a supplement is in fact harmless and ‘all natural’. Studies have found that some supplements contain chemicals, prescription drugs and steroids.

Just because a supplement is available on the shelf for purchase does not mean its safe. Remember, dietary supplements are not controlled by the Medicines Control Council and so do not have to undergo the same scrutiny (for safety and effectiveness) that prescription medications have to go through before they are allowed to be sold.

Dietary supplements, including herbal supplements have effects. Whether they are pills, powders, drinks or foods, supplements can have strong effects in the body. Supplements can also interact with prescription medicines and this may lead to potentially dangerous effects.

In general, few supplements have enough convincing research to support their claims. When it comes to most supplements, you’re in uncharted waters.

Bottom line: Proceed with caution when taking dietary supplements. Ask a qualified health professional for advice.

  6. Great list! People should keep blog posts short and sweet. I have been giving out short and direct to the point posts and it’s more readable to customers than posting a too-detailed post.
