Summary Scientists are just now beginning to study dietary supplements There is much that we dont know: What is the exact active ingredient in a plant with thousands of chemicals? What dose of this active ingredient is best in order to see an effect? What dose is unsafe? How do these active ingredients affect pregnancy? Can supplement ingredients be transferred through a mothers milk to the infant? Do these active ingredients help some cells and harm other cells
in the body? Summary Dietary supplements contain active ingredients just like prescription medicines and may lead to side effects and possible interactions with other medicines Unlike prescription medicines, dietary supplements are not required to undergo testing for safety or effectiveness in clinical studies before being marketed Always read and follow the instructions on the label If you take supplements tell your doctor before undergoing surgery Always talk to your pharmacist and doctor before
