What are dietary supplements?
Dietary supplements are concentrated substances based on plants, nutrients: vitamins and mineral salts and products with a nutritional purpose such as proteins, fatty acids or antioxidants.

Today, more and more people are taking food supplements to supplement a weight loss diet, for example, or to combat fatigue.
Food supplements are not medicines. Labelling and advertising must not state that such a food supplement can cure or treat any disease. Although food supplements are not medicines, daily doses must strictly follow the recommendations of nutritionists.
The list of herbs used in the manufacture of these products must be included in the labelling.
There are different categories of dietary supplements on the market: for hair and beard, for sports and weight training, for weight loss or weight gain, for pregnancy, for osteoarthritis, etc.
People on special diets such as vegetarians must take food supplements. But care must be taken to avoid misuse such as overdosing or using several products at the same time.
