Testing of food supplements on healthy volunteers or patients is essential for validating the effectiveness or efficacy of food supplement products. Positive clinical data obtained under proper experimental conditions strongly support the health claims of these products.
Clinical studies are an essential component for substantiating health claims for food supplements. They provide the highest level of scientific evidence into a cause-and-effect relationship. It is of highest importance to ensure all study objectives are included into a clinical study design and Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines are followed so that all data and outcomes collected at the end of the study are relevant to the proposed health claim.
