A dietarysupplement, also known as foodsupplement or nutritionalsupplement, is a preparation intended to provide nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, fatty acids or amino acids, that are missing or are not consumed in sufficient quantity in a person's diet. Some countries define dietary supplements as foods, while in others they are defined as drugs.
NO! This study proves Hydroxycut to be ineffective. Therefore,in our opinion, the only weight loss that may occur with individuals who use the product would be those affected by the placebo effect. This brings on the question; if the pill does not help with weight loss, why risk any health problems? Seems to be nothing more than an economic breakthrough.
In the future the FDA should need to put government-imposed regulations on all dietary supplements. For instance, the labeling should be clearly stated and the side effects should be clear to the consumer before purchased. Just because dietary supplements claim they are all natural and non-addictive does not mean they do not have dangerous long-term side effects. As our research shows, dietary supplements are not regulated enough and prove to be dangerous under the FDAâ€™s standards. If the FDA is meant to protect and make consumers aware of harmful substances then dietary supplements should be more closely studied and researched by the FDA.
