FDA Issues Tips on Wise Use of Dietary Supplements

Working together with NCPIE and many other health groups, the Food and Drug Administration recently issued “Tips for Older Dietary Supplement Users.” The on- line brochure includes questions-to-ask health professionals before using dietary supplements, and it features a handy form to keep track of all dietary supplements taken. This new tool, the FDA notes, will help older consumers “become better informed about how dietary supplement decisions can affect their health.”
