Dietary Supplement Health And Education Act Of 1994

The past few years have witnessed a dramatic increase in the use of herbal products as well as other methods associated with alternative and complementary medicine. What has fueled this shift toward herbal and nutritional supplements Many patients view herbal products as offering a gentler, more natural form of therapy with fewer side effects. While this may be true for some supplements, the side effects of many herbal products have simply not been publicized adequately. In addition, the use of herbal products also puts the patient in control of his treatment, since most do not require prescriptions. As the American public turned their attention to natural products, the political and legal environment also began to change. One key event was the passage by Congress of a major new law governing the marketing and sale of these products. This law, called the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (Public Law No 103-417)10 (full text of legislation can be found at http...

Transgenic Technology

Recently, the pharmaceutical industry has adopted transgenic technology, allowing researchers to engineer rats and mice whose physiology mimics a disease on a molecular and tissue-specific level. Transgenic animals are used in the pharmaceutical industry for two major purposes target validation and protein expression. The expression of recombinant proteins in large quantities by genetically engineered animals is a common method of obtaining recombinant proteins or enzymes to be used as therapeutics or nutritional supplements. Sheep, goats, and cattle have been engineered to produce recombinant proteins in their milk, for example. These types of transgenic animals will not be discussed here.

Psychosocial Treatments

Some consumers object to taking medications because of concern about the long-term use of psychotropic medication, or because they are opposed to the ingestion of chemical substances for philosophical or religious reasons. Such individuals may explore alternative treatments. Nutritional supplements and special dietary regimens have been used since the 1950s, but thus far there is no solid scientific support for this approach (Torrey, 2001). Others try homeopathic remedies, or relaxation techniques. Patricia Deegan, a consumer advocate, has written a manual on nonmedical strategies for reducing and coping with symptoms called Coping with Voices Self Help Strategies for People Who Hear Voices That Are Distressing (1995). For example, when experiencing aversive auditory hallucinations, some consumers may obtain relief by listening to soothing music with headphones. (For more information on Dr. Deegan, see the biography in Chapter 12.) The exploration and use of alternative treatments for...

Public Health Message

Limit the use of dietary supplements, since the majority of 'normal' diets are complete. Many of the products sold in health food stores impart a false sense of security and many people 'overdose' in the belief that, if something is good, more is better. Taking a supplement but not reducing fat may negate any benefit from the former. Furthermore, the combination of vitamins in fruits and vegetables may account for activity differences due to interaction, compared to taking single, isolated supplements. Thus, fruits and vegetables may offer more benefits than isolated compounds. 2. Improving the database and the methodology for assessing human exposure to foods and dietary supplements that may alter the risk of cancer.

Other Medications and Herbal Supplements

Dietary supplements and herbal preparations are not prospectively reviewed by the FDA for safety or efficacy. These agents are only reviewed if they are shown to present a significant or unreasonable risk , as has been the case with ephedra supplements. Herbals and supplements include chitosan, chromium picolinate, conjugated linoleic acid, ephedra alkaloids (ma huang) and garcinia cambogia. There is insufficient data on these agents except for ephedra alkaloids and caffeine, which do have randomized, controlled trials that indicate efficacy in promoting weight loss. Chromium picolinate, an essential trace mineral and cofactor to insulin, which improves insulin action and is available as an over the counter supplement. A meta-analysis of 10 double-blind randomized clinical trials with this supplement found a relatively small weight reduction of 1.1-1.2 kg (0.08-0.2 kg wk) compared with placebo during a treatment period of 6-14 wk in patients with an average BMI of 28-33, without any...

Probiotic Agents on Colorectal Physiology

On nutrition, probiotics are nutritional supplements containing living micro-organisms, e.g., bacteria or yeasts, that have a beneficial impact on the host by improving the endogenous flora when introduced to a human being. And we can expect that prophylactic treatment such as MBP with these agents or a real antimicrobial interference therapy on surgical practice.

Priorities For The Food Sector

In contrast to that in the developing world, the incidence of known nutritional deficiency disorders in the developed world is low. Even in the case of vegetarians, there appears to be no appreciable problem. Classical nutritional deficiency diseases have been avoided through the widespread fortification of food when it was realized that many staple crops contained insufficient concentrations of many essential vitamins and minerals. Fortification is also utilized to replace nutrients lost in the heat processing of staple foods and through oxidation. In addition, the consumption of nutritional supplements is becoming more widespread. Nonetheless, there is good evidence, as shown in Fig. 2, that even in a country such as the United States, where most nutritionally related disorders probably stem from over-nutrition, there is inadequate intake of micronutrients compared with what would be found in the plasma if recommended dietary allowances (RDAs) were consumed.

Conceptual Basis of Dietary Reference Intakes

E.g., Daily Values in Nutrition Facts Panel and Dietary Supplement Facts Panel in the US (adopted via regulations established by the US Food and Drug Administration, January 6, 1993, Fed. Register 58 FR 2079-2205) Maximum nutrient levels for fortification dietary supplement formulation

Role of Transporters in Drug Interactions

The growing use of herbal and other dietary supplements by the lay population suggests that an increase in dietary supplement-drug interactions may occur. For example, St. John's wort (Hypericum perforatum) was shown to decrease the digoxin AUC by 25 after 10 days of treatment (118). The effect appears to reflect induction of P-gp expression. Whether the active component leading to induction is the same or different from hypericin (one of the putative active antidepres-sant components of St. John's wort) is not known. A significant number of other herbal supplement-drug interactions are known, including interactions with HIV protease inhibitors and with anticoagulants (119). It is not clear whether the effects are on metabolism or transport.

Drug Metabolism Interactions of Particular Importance to Women

Women use herbal and dietary supplements at higher rates than men do. This rise in use of alternative therapies places women at increased risk of significant drug interactions, specifically drug-herb and drug-nutrient interactions (83-89). For instance, St. John's wort, a popular antidepressant, contains at least seven groups of chemical compounds. These include naphthodianthrons (hypericin and pseudohy-pericin), flavonoids (quercetin, hyperoside, and rutin),

Nutritional Vitamin and Alternative Complementary Treatment Strategies

Vitamin and mineral supplementation may also be beneficial. Dietary supplements with increased tryptophan have been utilized in an effort to reduce premenstrual symptoms, particularly carbohydrate craving. A variety of herbal medications have also been used for treating PMS. This has been particularly welcomed by many patients who prefer so-called natural remedies. Other alternative strategies that have been investigated include acupuncture, massage therapy, and homeopathic remedies. Randomized controlled trials ofVitamin B6, calcium, and carbohydrate-rich dietary supplements have demonstrated efficacy in premenstrual syndrome. A recent meta-analysis revealed that vitamin B6 in daily doses of 50-100 mg reduced premenstrual mood and physical symptoms. Calcium supplementation has also been shown to be efficacious in the management of moderate to severe premenstrual symptoms. A randomized controlled trial comparing calcium carbonate to placebo revealed that 1200 mg of calcium carbonate...

Treatment and Prevention

To avoid the disease, it is common practice for Han mothers to descend to their lowland homes to give birth and then entrust their child to the care of elderly relatives, because the Han mother must return to altitude and work. The child is then not brought to high altitude until is it over a year old or more. If some Han mothers must to give birth at high altitude for economic or personal reasons, the newborns should be under the care of the hospital. Establishing an oxygen enrichment room for infants is extremely necessary in Tibet. Nutritional supplements such as carbohydrates, proteins, iron and vitamins are necessary both for pregnant women and for infants. Prevention of respiratory infections is more important in children at high altitude.

Summary And Conclusions

The 'Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994' guarantees Americans ready access to herbal products. While selected herbal products have impressive therapeutic activity in tissue culture and animal models, with few exceptions clinical trial documentation of activity is less than impressive. In fact, the common pattern is for initially promising laboratory findings to lead to widespread commercial availability without any intervening clinical investigation. An additional problem of great concern is that the commercially available herbal products vary widely in their quality. Nevertheless, the increasing number of clinical trials carried out with these materials combined with the advent of modern molecular biological drug-screening techniques promises to revolutionize drug discovery and lead to effective anticancer compounds in the next 5-10 years.

Optimism vs Pessimism

Another source of optimism about future mortality rates lies in the potential application of existing technologies (e.g., nutritional supplements, reductions in smoking) or the unusual longevity of certain groups such as Mormons and Seventh Day Adventists (52,53). Such discussions may be a good way to improve health behaviors, but they are not so good at informing predictions, largely because this same sort of advocacy influenced past trends as well. For purposes of prediction, we need to ask whether future positive reforms in lifestyle are likely to be implemented faster or more effectively than were similar reforms in the past.

Role of Transporters in Drug Absorption

Competition between substrates for limiting transporter molecules and other effects lead to drug-drug, drug-food, and drug-dietary supplement interactions very similar to those seen with CYP450s. In an explicit test of GI absorption exsorption interactions, small intestinal secretion of intravenously infused tal-inolol, a b1-adrenergic receptor antagonist, has been studied in healthy volunteers using a steady-state perfusion technique (88). Perfusion of dexverapamil (-R)-verapamil into the intestinal lumen lowered the intestinal secretion of talinolol 29-56 . The conclusion is that bioavailability of talinolol is in part limited by exsorption and may be subject to drug interactions during absorption. In this study (_R)-verapamil was used because it is known to affect P-gp-mediated drug transport, but is devoid of the pharmacological effects of (S)-verapamil. Hence, it can be used safely as a probe in clinical studies of P-gp inhibition. P-gp can be activated as well as inhibited, as...


The C677T polymorphism is thought to lead to increased thymidine pools and 'better quality' of DNA synthesis by shunting one-carbon groups towards thymidine and purine synthesis. This may also explain its reported association with a lower risk for colorectal cancer. The incidence of colon cancer was also lower in subjects taking vitamin supplements containing folic acid and with higher folate intake compared with control subjects in the Nurses Health Study. Other tumours that have been associated with folate polymorphisms or status include follicular lymphoma, breast cancer and gastric cancer.

Hormones and Aging

Another hormone that greatly influences human behavior and development is human growth hormone (HGH). This hormone is produced by the anterior pituitary (adenohypophysis) gland under the control of the hypothalamus. HGH production peaks during adolescence, corresponding to the growth spurt. While it is produced throughout life, it declines with age in all species studied to date. In humans, HGH production tends to drop quickly beginning in the thirties so that by age sixty, HGH production is only about 25 percent of what it was earlier in life, and it continues to decline until death. The decrease in HGH production with age has been tied to thinning of skin and wrinkle formation, muscle wasting, sleep problems, cognitive and mood changes, decreased cardiac and kidney function, lessening of sexual performance, and weakening ofbones, contributing to osteoporosis. Nutritional supplements including the amino acids arginine, lysine, and glutamine are being investigated as growth hormone...


Pharmacopoeias contain much information regarding drug and veterinary substances. Those commonly use or include the United States, British, and European Pharmacopoeias. The U.S. Pharmacopoeia ( has more than 4000 monographs featuring the standards for prescription and non-prescription drug ingredients and dosage forms, dietary supplements, medical devices, and other healthcare products. The monographs include descriptions, requirements, tests, analytical procedures, and acceptance criteria. Information on the British Pharmacopoaeia can be obtained from and on the European Pharmaco-poaeia from

Control Mechanisms

Repressing transcription and thus a 'gene silencing' mechanism. Early in development, the genes are not methylated, but this process is thought to occur after implantation of the zygote. Methylation occurs through the action of the DNA methyltransferase, a process in which many vitamins participate. Therefore, certain dietary supplements given during pregnancy and early postnatal life may have an unintended silencing or deleterious effect on gene expression 36 as shown by the effect of feeding a diet high in vitamins involved in methyl group metabolism on the expression of coat color in the viable yellow Agouti mouse (Avy). The expression of the Agouti gene is characterized by a yellow coat color, obese, diabetic and cancer-prone phenotype. A 3- to 5-fold higher intake of methyl donors and methylation cofactors in the form of choline, betaine, B12 and folate during pregnancy led to a shift towards offspring with the brown coat color phenotype, indicating an epige-netic regulation of...

Available Doses

This approach includes dietary supplements, which are not considered to be drugs by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and therefore are not subject to the strict regulation and safety guidelines imposed on conventional medications. As a result, significant variation can occur in the content and potency of each batch of supplement. Phytoestrogens are plant-derived compounds with estrogen effects soybeans are a particularly rich source of phytoestrogens with approximately 1 to 3 mg of phytoestrogen per gram of soy protein. Since it would be very difficult to consume sufficient soy to alleviate menopausal symptoms in a typical Western diet, some patients opt to take soy supplements. Some (but not all) studies have suggested that isoflavones in soy products reduce the frequency and severity of hot
