There is a myth among consumers that dietary supplements in the United States are wholly unregulated. Dietary supplements are subject to regulation under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) and various state laws. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is charged with regulating dietary supplement products in the United States.


Any company that manufactures, packages, labels, or holds a dietary supplement must comply with the Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP). Compliance is of tantamount importance, as the FDA can pursue enforcement actions against any adulterated or misbranded dietary supplement.
