What's the 'right' dose of a food supplement?

6 June 2017: Neal Patel, RPS spokesperson and pharmacist, appeared on Channel 4’s consumer programme Supershoppers to talk about the ‘right dose’ of vitamins and food supplements. Explaining why there is variation across retailers in the recommended doses of supplements like evening primrose oil, omega-3 fish oil and vitamin-B complex, Patel told viewers: “Supplements are regulated in the same way as foods, so they don’t have to have the same accurate dose as medicines.

“With a food supplement it’s about taking a dose that’s in a safe range, as you are not taking a dose to treat a particular condition,” he added. “So there may be a high [recommended] range, or a low range. As long as you’re in that safe range, it’s fine for the manufacturers to suggest that.”
