What is a dietary supplement?

As defined by Congress in the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (http://www.fda.gov/opacom/laws/dshea.html#sec3), which became law in 1994, a dietary supplement is a product (other than tobacco) that

  • is intended to supplement the diet;
  • contains one or more dietary ingredients (including vitamins; minerals; herbs or other botanicals; amino acids; and other substances) or their constituents;
  • is intended to be taken by mouth as a pill, capsule, tablet, or liquid; and
  • is labeled on the front panel as being a dietary supplement.

What is a new dietary ingredient?

A new dietary ingredient is a dietary ingredient that was not sold in the United States in a dietary supplement before October 15, 1994.

Are dietary supplements different from foods and drugs?

Although dietary supplements are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as foods, they are regulated differently from other foods and from drugs. Whether a product is classified as a dietary supplement, conventional food, or drug is based on its intended use. Most often, classification as a dietary supplement is determined by the information that the manufacturer provides on the product label or in accompanying literature, although many food and dietary supplement product labels do not include this information.

What claims can manufacturers make for dietary supplements and drugs?

The types of claims that can be made on the labels of dietary supplements and drugs differ. Drug manufacturers may claim that their product will diagnose, cure, mitigate, treat, or prevent a disease. Such claims may not legally be made for dietary supplements.

The label of a dietary supplement or food product may contain one of three types of claims: a health claim, nutrient content claim, or structure/function claim (http://www.cfsan.fda.gov/~dms/hclaims.html). Health claims describe a relationship between a food, food component, or dietary supplement ingredient, and reducing risk of a disease or health-related condition. Nutrient content claims describe the relative amount of a nutrient or dietary substance in a product. A structure/function claim is a statement describing how a product may affect the organs or systems of the body and it can not mention any specific disease. Structure/function claims do not require FDA approval but the manufacturer must provide FDA with the text of the claim within 30 days of putting the product on the market (http://www.cfsan.fda.gov/~dms/ds-labl.html#structure). Product labels containing such claims must also include a disclaimer that reads, “This statement has not been evaluated by the FDA. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.”

How does FDA regulate dietary supplements?

In addition to regulating label claims, FDA regulates dietary supplements in other ways. Supplement ingredients sold in the United States before October 15, 1994, are not required to be reviewed by FDA for their safety before they are marketed because they are presumed to be safe based on their history of use by humans. For a new dietary ingredient (one not sold as a dietary supplement before 1994) the manufacturer must notify FDA of its intent to market a dietary supplement containing the new dietary ingredient and provide information on how it determined that reasonable evidence exists for safe human use of the product. FDA can either refuse to allow new ingredients into or remove existing ingredients from the marketplace for safety reasons.

Manufacturers do not have to provide FDA with evidence that dietary supplements are effective or safe; however, they are not permitted to market unsafe or ineffective products. Once a dietary supplement is marketed, FDA has to prove that the product is not safe in order to restrict its use or remove it from the market. In contrast, before being allowed to market a drug product, manufacturers must obtain FDA approval by providing convincing evidence that it is both safe and effective.

The label of a dietary supplement product is required to be truthful and not misleading. If the label does not meet this requirement, FDA may remove the product from the marketplace or take other appropriate actions.

What information is required on a dietary supplement label?

FDA requires that certain information appear on the dietary supplement label:

General information

  • Name of product (including the word “supplement” or a statement that the product is a supplement)
  • Net quantity of contents
  • Name and place of business of manufacturer, packer, or distributor
  • Directions for use

Supplement Facts panel

  • Serving size, list of dietary ingredients, amount per serving size (by weight), percent of Daily Value (%DV), if established
  • If the dietary ingredient is a botanical, the scientific name of the plant or the common or usual name standardized in the reference Herbs of Commerce, 2nd Edition (2000 edition) and the name of the plant part used
  • If the dietary ingredient is a proprietary blend (i.e., a blend exclusive to the manufacturer), the total weight of the blend and the components of the blend in order of predominance by weight

Other ingredients

  • Nondietary ingredients such as fillers, artificial colors, sweeteners, flavors, or binders; listed by weight in descending order of predominance and by common name or proprietary blend

The label of the supplement may contain a cautionary statement but the lack of a cautionary statement does not mean that no adverse effects are associated with the product. A label for a fictitious botanical product is available at http://vm.cfsan.fda.gov/~acrobat/fdsuppla.pdf.

Does a label indicate the quality of a dietary supplement product?

It is difficult to determine the quality of a dietary supplement product from its label. The degree of quality control depends on the manufacturer, the supplier, and others in the production process.

FDA is authorized to issue Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) regulations describing conditions under which dietary supplements must be prepared, packed, and stored. FDA published a proposed rule in March 2003 that is intended to ensure that manufacturing practices will result in an unadulterated dietary supplement and that dietary supplements are accurately labeled. Until this proposed rule is finalized, dietary supplements must comply with food GMPs, which are primarily concerned with safety and sanitation rather than dietary supplement quality. Some manufacturers voluntarily follow drug GMPs, which are more rigorous, and some organizations that represent the dietary supplement industry have developed unofficial GMPs.

Are dietary supplements standardized?

Standardization is a process that manufacturers may use to ensure batch-to-batch consistency of their products. In some cases, standardization involves identifying specific chemicals (known as markers) that can be used to manufacture a consistent product. The standardization process can also provide a measure of quality control.

Dietary supplements are not required to be standardized in the United States. In fact, no legal or regulatory definition exists in the United States for standardization as it applies to dietary supplements. Because of this, the term “standardization” may mean many different things. Some manufacturers use the term standardization incorrectly to refer to uniform manufacturing practices; following a recipe is not sufficient for a product to be called standardized. Therefore, the presence of the word “standardized” on a supplement label does not necessarily indicate product quality.

What methods are used to evaluate the health benefits and safety of a dietary supplement?

Scientists use several approaches to evaluate dietary supplements for their potential health benefits and safety risks, including their history of use and laboratory studies using cell or animal studies. Studies involving people (individual case reports, observational studies, and clinical trials) can provide information that is relevant to how dietary supplements are used. Researchers may conduct a systematic review to summarize and evaluate a group of clinical trials that meet certain criteria. A meta-analysis is a review that includes a statistical analysis of data combined from many studies.

What are some additional sources of information on dietary supplements?

Medical libraries are one source of information about dietary supplements. Others include Web-based resources such as PubMed (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?holding=nih) and FDA (http://www.cfsan.fda.gov/~dms/ds-info.html).

Philosophy 101

Philosophy 101

As we grow older, and hence wiser, we slowly realize that:

Whether we wear a $300 or $30 watch – – – they both tell the same time.

Whether we carry a $300 or $30 wallet/handbag – – – the amount of money inside is the same.

Whether we drink a bottle of $300 or $30 or $3 wine – – – the hangover is the same.

Whether the house we live in is 300 or 3,000 or 30,000 sq. ft. – – – the loneliness is the same.

And we realize our true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world.

Whether we fly first or economy class, if the plane goes down – – – we go down with it. Whether we fly first or economy class, if the plane reaches its destination – – -everyone arrives at the same time.

Therefore . . . we should realize that when we have mates, buddies and old friends, brothers and sisters, with whom we can chat, laugh, talk, sing, talk about north-south-east-west or heaven and earth — that is true happiness!

Six Undeniable Facts of Life

  1. Don’t educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be happy, so when they grow up they will know the value of things, not the price.
  2. Best wise words: “Eat your food as your medicines. Otherwise you have to eat medicines as your food.”
  3. The one who loves you will never leave you because, even if there are 100 reasons to give up, he or she will find one reason to hold on.
  4. There is a big difference between a human being and being human. Only a few folks really understand that.
  5. You are loved when you are born. You will be loved when you die. In between, you have to manage!
  6. If you just want to walk fast, walk alone; but, if you want to walk far, walk together!

Six Best Doctors in the World

  1. Sunlight
  2. Rest
  3. Exercise
  4. Diet
  5. Self Confidence
  6. Friends

And, finally: The nicest place to be is in someone’s thoughts, the safest place to be is in someone’s prayers, and the very best place to be is…in the hands of God.

What Are Antioxidants? 6 Quick Facts About Antioxidant Vitamins

1)  What are antioxidants?

When discussing antioxidants, we mean vitamins C, E, and the provitamin Beta Carotene.

2) Where are antioxidants found?

These nutrients can be found in a wide variety of vitamin supplements and fortified foods. More specifically, Vitamin C is found in grapefruits, strawberries, blueberries, oranges, kale, potatoes and broccoli. Vitamin E is found in leafy greens and nuts. Finally, Beta Carotene is found in collard greens and spinach, as well as other dark green leafy vegetables, and in yellow-orange fruits and vegetables like sweet potatoes, carrots, cantaloupes and peaches.

3) What do antioxidants do?

Antioxidant vitamins play an important part in keeping our body safe and healthy. Free radicals, highly-reactive and unstable molecules that may cause cellular damage, threaten our body daily. They are produced naturally within our bodies and can also be produced by air pollution and tobacco smoke. After recent studies and research, it’s now believed that the cellular damage caused by free radicals, in addition to other factors, may lead to the formation of many chronic diseases including heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants are very important because they have the ability to neutralize free radicals and keep our body healthy.

4) What do doctors and other health professionals recommend?

Obviously doctors and healthcare providers recommend regular exercise, checkups on a consistent basis, less fatty foods and salts and no smoking. In addition to these healthy practices, it’s also recommended to eat a balanced diet that contains at least five daily servings of vegetables and fruits rich in antioxidant vitamins.

5) How about vitamin supplements?

Antioxidant vitamins can be found in numerous supplements and food products such as breakfast cereals and juice drinks. Many physicians believe taking supplements or eating fortified foods with vitamins and minerals is important for those who don’t have a particularly good diet or who have special needs. People are also strongly advised to read the nutritional labels.

6) Are there any risks to ingesting antioxidants?

Vitamins C, E and Beta Carotene are officially classified as Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS). In addition, the vast amount of scientific evidence obtained and gathered over many years supports the safety of antioxidants, even at high levels, but one should always follow label directions.

Need to get more antioxidants into your diet? A supplement might be an option. For example, One-Per-Meal LifeGuard™ is a multi-vitamin and mineral antioxidant supplement formulated for free radical protection and general nutrition needs.

What is Phosphatidylserine?

As we age, the demands of life only seem to grow, and our bodies and minds begin to gradually decline which can make things difficult for us. The mental decline as we age can be especially frustrating, and may lead to other potential problems.

Although aging and its side effects are inevitable, we can fight back by becoming healthier. The combination of valuable supplements and a smart and balanced diet might help us live longer and happier. One essential chemical compound for maintaining a healthier mind is phosphatidylserine.

Phosphatidylserine is a phospholipid that aids in the function of our cell membranes – specifically, the brain. So just what does the cell membrane do? The cell membrane does a lot of things, but it helps move waste out of our cells, keeps the cell intact and moves essential nutrients into our various cells to keep us healthy.

Phosphatidylserine is naturally produced in the body, but only in small amounts. To obtain the right amount, we need to include it in our diet by eating foods like muscle and organ meats, and white beans. We can also get it from soybeans and various other plant sources.

Of course, you should always consult a doctor as to ascertain the proper dosage and to what capacity it should be a part of your diet (not recommended for children, pregnant women and people with kidney or liver diseases).

The aging process isn’t always a cake walk, so it’s important to develop a healthy diet and lifestyle. Working out every day for a short time, eating right and adding supplements and foods with essentials nutrients are all vital to a healthy life.

Phosphatidylserine is one chemical compound that’s important for our mental stability and health, so make sure to research the benefits it could have on your life.

Catch Some Rays from Sunlife Vitamin D-3

Sunlife

In today’s fast-paced world it’s tough to know which vitamins are essential and which are exploited for profit. Vitamin D-3 falls under the essential category as it can benefit people in numerous ways. Like most necessary vitamins, acquiring the right amount is tricky especially during the winter months when mother nature hides the sun from us with clouds bringing snow and rain. So, it’s important to take a Vitamin D-3 supplement to ensure you don’t experience a deficiency.

When the proper Vitamin D-3 levels are not met, one can experience muscle and bone weakness. The daily aches and pains may be a result of Vitamin D-3 deficiency and can lead to more injuries or discomfort. Vitamin D-3 can help use calcium from food like milk and eggs to create strong bones (that’s why your parents always suggested more milk).

Other possible health risks include cancer, more severe consequences of cardiovascular disease and decreased thinking ability. To combat these risks, Vitamin D-3 can be found in cod liver oil, fish, ham, sausage and other dairy products. Of course not everyone likes fish, ham and dairy products, so obtaining the correct levels of Vitamin D-3 can be difficult. In case you aren’t a fish fanatic or dairy lover you can bask in the sun and receive Vitamin D-3 that way, or you can take Sunlife.

Sunlife may help support proper brain function and proper heart function, could possibly improve emotional health and improve your sense of well-being and happiness and maintain proper muscle function. So with the gray of winter looming for the next couple months, adding Sunlife may do wonders for your health.

Key Supplements for Better Brain Health: Omega 3, B-Vitamins, and D3

Neurology ® Dec. 28, 2011, DOI: 10.1212/WNL.0b013e3182436598).

Numerous studies suggest that people with higher intakes of the omega-3 essential fatty acids; vitamins C, D, E, and the B vitamins were less likely to have brain shrinkage. These nutrients have also been associated with higher scores on mental thinking tests.

One particular study involved 104 people with an average age of 87 and very few risk factors for memory and thinking problems. Blood tests were used to determine the levels of various nutrients present in the blood of each participant. All of the participants also took tests of their memory and thinking skills. A total of 42 of the participants had MRI scans to measure their brain volume.

The participants overall had good nutritional status, but 7 percent were deficient in vitamin B12 and 25 percent were deficient in vitamin D.

Physician Pointing at Brain MRI

Previous studies have looked at only one or a few nutrients at a time or have used questionnaires to assess people’s diet. This study was among the first of its type to specifically measure a wide range of blood nutrient levels instead of basing findings on less precise data such as food questionnaires. Questionnaires rely on people’s memory of their diet, and they also do not account for how much of the nutrients are absorbed by the body, which can be an issue in the elderly.

In contrast, the study found people with diets high in trans fats were more likely to have brain shrinkage and lower scores on the thinking and memory tests.

The study was supported by the National Institutes of Health, the National Institute on Aging and National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine and the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, Portland VA Medical Center.

In Conclusion: study author Gene Bowman, ND, MPH, of Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, a member of the American Academy of Neurology, said that the nutrient biomarkers in the blood accounted for a significant amount of the variation in both brain volume and thinking and memory scores. For the thinking and memory scores, the nutrient biomarkers accounted for 17 percent of the variation in the scores. Other factors such as age, number of years of education and high blood pressure accounted for 46 percent of the variation. For brain volume, the nutrient biomarkers accounted for 37 percent of the variation.

The Value of Lifeguard

Do you need a Lifeguard

The recent study, “Multivitamin-Mineral Use Is Associated with Reduced Risk of Cardiovascular Disease Mortality Among Women in the United States,” published in The LifeGuard Daily Antioxidant SupplementJournal of Nutrition and conducted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS), found that women who took a multivitamin versus non-users for three or more years had reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease (CVD).

In addition, another study from Sweden concluded with similar results showed an association with reduced risk of myocardial infarction in women taking multivitamins for more than five years. According to Duffy MacKay, ND, senior vice president, scientific and regulatory affairs, Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), “We find these results encouraging and they provide another potential reason for women to take their multivitamins. But people should not expect that taking a multivitamin in and of itself would prevent heart disease; we advise people to take their vitamins as just one of the smart choices they make for good health.” An interesting finding was that there were positive results in women only as opposed to men. Yet, despite the facts, MacKay’s advice for both sexes remains the same when it comes to multivitamins. Not only are supplements affordable but they also give consumers the appropriate amount of nutrients. Also, research suggests that multivitamins can help men prevent cancer, “which I would consider the icing on top of the cake.”

Dad Ice Skating with Son

Coping with Winter Joint Aches & Pains

Yes, it’s that time of year… winter is here. Instead of shorts and t-shirts, the proper attire consists of pants, long-sleeve shirts, sweatshirts and coats. The cold wind bites at your heels, and worse, the cold also aggravates our bones and joints. During winter, you can experience more stiffness and discomfort from your knees and back among other things, but you don’t have to accept the pain.

After spending all day at work and performing your daily responsibilities, you may not feel like working out, but even 30 minutes of exercise per day can make a huge impact. If you can find time to work out, you could boost your mood, along with your creative and critical thinking capacity. In addition, working out can help your joints and muscles feel less stiff if they are accustomed to being used. The long periods pf standing or sitting at work can cause your body to tense up, so walking or jogging can loosen them up, and in turn, you feel better.

Dad Ice Skating with Son

Of course, joint, bone, and muscle discomfort is still possible, but you can fight back by adding daily supplements and vitamins to your diet. Joint Decision is a dietary supplement specifically designed to help you and your joint pain. Joint Decision helps to supply the body with glucosamine, which is necessary for our bodies to function with little or no discomfort.

Glucosamine is naturally manufactured within our bodies and can be consumed in our diet, but it’s difficult to get the proper amount through diet alone. If you have the incorrect amount of glucosamine necessary in your body, then your joints and bones can feel achy and painful.

Our cartilage needs glucosamine to function properly. Cartilage is what helps cushion our joints when we move and helps prevent them from feeling stiff after resting in the same position for long amounts of time. Joint Decision can help supply the body with the right amount of glucosamine so the cartilage can effectively cushion our joints and allow you to feel better when performing your daily tasks.

So don’t let the bitter cold of winter and its effect on your joints keep you from doing the things you love, like cooking succulent meals for the holidays, spending time with the rambunctious kids in your family, taking your favorite canine for a brisk winter walk, or even just going about your daily life.
