It’s in your hands
Every day, millions of people take vitamin and mineral supplements, either as part of their long term health and nutrition regimes or to address specific ailments. But from time to time proposed legislations threatens to weaken over-the-counter supplements by lowering the maximum permitted levels or even by banning them all together. The Save Our Supplements campaign calls on citizens to take urgent action, so we can all continue to make informed choices for ourselves – free of excessive regulatory interference.
About the Food Supplements
For the past few years, we have campaigned against any implementation of legislations that call for lower MPLs. Although still being debated, there is a strong possibility that the levels will be set considerably lower than currently permitted. More and more countries are currently and slowly adopt a far more restrictive attitude towards supplements than previously, meaning that eventually a wider range of higher-dose remedies will not be available. If lower MPLs were set, to bring them in line across all countries, hundreds of safe and popular products, many of which have been around for decades, will be substantially weakened. Not only will this have a damaging effect on the specialist supplements and alternative health industries, it will significantly undermine consumers’ rights to make informed choices for themselves.
