New FDA Resource for Dietary Supplements
Many people think of dietary supplements as a completely different category from prescription drugs, and as such don’t think about the complexities of them. A new initiative aims to change that idea. On June 2, 2022, the Food and Drug Administration launched the website Supplement Your Knowledge as part of a plan to make information on dietary supplements more accessible to every citizen. It features different sections for healthcare providers, teachers, and consumers. Within each section, the administration has included resources like fact sheets, videos, and links to other agencies' resources.
