Can supplements be sold without FDA approval?

Supplements don’t technically have to be approved for dietary safety before they reach the consumer. Of course, that makes things a little easier when it comes to purchasing supplements. Because they don’t have to be approved for dietary safety, they can be sold without it. You don’t need to have them approved by the FDA to purchase them.

That doesn’t mean it’s always good to buy products that aren’t approved by the FDA. The organisation exists for a reason and is generally good. The problem is sometimes waiting for them to take action or trying to get something new approved can take a while.

Just keep that in mind when buying supplements.
