Dietary Supplements and Operation Supplement Safety

March 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm EDT


About This Webinar

Many service members use dietary supplements—for promoting health, improving performance, bodybuilding, losing weight, and more. Unfortunately, some supplements have resulted in adverse events that compromise rather than improve performance, and in some cases supplements result in positive drug tests. This presentation will discuss how dietary supplements are regulated, highlight some of the issues and risks surrounding the topic of dietary supplements, and provide tools and resources from Operation Supplement Safety to help consumers evaluate dietary supplement products.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe how dietary supplements are regulated
  • Discuss key topics related to dietary supplements
  • Explain how to use Operation Supplements Safety tools and resources such as the DoD Prohibited Dietary Supplements Ingredients List and the OPSS Scorecard
