Does FDA approve muscle-building supplements?
Hello, I am 18 years old, male. I am underweight and want to gain muscle weight. I joined the gym 3 months back and changed my diet but didn’t see any change, so I was thinking about taking muscle-building supplements. I heard they do have some side effects. Can anyone tell me, does FDA approves muscle-building supplements? If yes, then should I take it?
@bartholomäus Hello, The FDA does not regulate protein supplements. These Dietary supplements include such ingredients as vitamins, minerals, herbs, amino acids, and enzymes. Dietary supplements are marketed in forms such as tablets, capsules, soft gels, gel caps, powders, and liquids. Yes, they do have some side effects. Many supplements contain active ingredients that have strong biological effects on the body. This could make them unsafe in some situations and hurt or complicate your health. Please contact your doctor before taking any supplements. Thanks!
