Herb and Dietary Supplement Use Among College Students

Recorded On: 09/29/2020

Herb and Dietary Supplement Use Among College Students 


In February 2019, the FDA announced strengthening its oversight of the dietary supplement industry as “explosive growth” has resulted in risks to consumers. This is especially worrisome at the collegiate level since studies suggest up to 70% of young adults report using herbs and dietary supplements. This session will highlight popular products and usage among college students, top reasons for use, and safety and pharmacology. Additionally, we will discuss how to interpret Supplement Facts Labels.
