The regulation of these supplements is a tricky matter since these substances often only need to be registered but not necessarily approved before being marketed. That is why these supplements need to carry that important label “NO THERAPEUTIC CLAIMS”.

They may have certain uses and benefits, again not fully proven, and thus, they can only supplement.
