The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates claims on dietary supplement product labels. In addition to regulating statements that appear on labels, the FDA regulates dietary supplements in other ways. It is not necessary for the FDA to review the safety of the ingredients in supplements that were sold in the United States before October 15, 1994 before marketing them, since they are presumed to be safe based on their history of use in humans. In the case of a new dietary ingredient (one that was not sold as a dietary supplement before 1999), the manufacturer must notify the FDA of its intention to market a dietary supplement containing the new dietary ingredient and provide information on how it has determined that there is reasonable evidence of safe human use of the product.
The FDA may deny entry to new ingredients or recall existing ingredients from the market for safety reasons. A summary of the rules for the use of nutrient content claims can be found in chapter VI of the Food Labeling Guide. Percentage statements are a type of statement about nutrient content used in dietary supplements to describe the amount of a dietary ingredient or to make a comparison between two products. For example, one of these rules states that the “main presentation panel” (the main panel of the supplement) must include a “statement of identity” of the product.
These statements are used to describe the percentage level of a dietary ingredient in a dietary supplement and may refer to dietary ingredients for which a daily value has not been established, provided that the statement is accompanied by a statement of the amount of the dietary ingredient per serving. Therefore, this method of monitoring health claims cannot be used in the case of dietary supplements for the time being.

The requirements governing the use of nutrient content statements help ensure that descriptive terms, such as high or low, are used uniformly across all types of food products and therefore make sense to consumers.
The FDA could regulate your dietary supplement products as new drugs, unless you pay attention to these regulatory foundations. The disclaimer should also state that the dietary supplement is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease, since only a drug can legally make such a statement. The Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act of 1997 (FDAMA) establishes a second way to authorize the use of a health claim in food labeling. If the FDA believes that the evidence supporting the proposed allegation is credible and that it can meet the requirements to prevent it from misleading consumers, the agency issues a letter specifying the requirements that must accompany the complaint and outlines the circumstances under which it intends to exercise its enforcement discretion to use the statement in food labeling.
Over the past decade, the FTC has filed one hundred and twenty lawsuits challenging the health claims of supplements. While the FDA execution letters are issued to the applicant requesting the statement of qualified health properties, the qualified statements are available for use on any food or dietary supplement that meets the conditions of discretionary power of compliance specified in the letter.
