“…Therefore, the National Health Surveillance Agency of Brazil (ANVISA), which oversees the licensing and health surveillance of HM products, has recognized the importance of knowledge mobilization and active collaboration between the HM researchers and regulators, and thus has engaged in various cooperative initiatives. Most notably, the International Pharmaceutical Regulators Forum encourages coordination between countries such as the United States, Canada, and India for the exchange of information gathered from research investigations, which may help to strengthen existing research on HM regulations in other countries [ 33 ]. ANVISA has even proposed organizing regular meetings with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to share information on regulatory policies regularly [ 33 , 34 ].…”

“…This belief seems to be confirmed in their attitudes and practices, particularly with regard to counseling patients about natural sources of vitamin intake and healthy lifestyles, including diet, drinking, alcohol consumption, and smoking, whose importance in maintaining health and well-being and preventing noncommunicable diseases is undisputed. Although dietary supplements are an important complementary source of essential nutrients ( Epicentro, 2022 , FederSalus, 2018 ), their widespread and inadequately regulated use raises concerns about potential adverse effects ( ISS, 2020 ), which may be exacerbated by the incomplete or falsified information available on the Internet and social media ( Al Khaja et al, 2018 , Molin et al, 2019 , Adams et al, 2020 ) and by the ease of purchasing dietary supplements available over-the-counter.…”

“…A RDC ANVISA nº 243/2018 estabeleceu os requisitos sanitários para suplementos alimentares, incluindo uma listagem de nutrientes, substâncias bioativas, probióticos e enzimas (Resolução n. 243, 2018). Esta legislação surgiu como uma proposta regulatória com menos entraves para os fabricantes visando a oferta de suplementos alimentares no Brasil com garantia de qualidade para o consumidor (Molin et al, 2019). De acordo com a Instrução Normativa ANVISA nº 28/2018 os produtos contendo lactase são classificados como suplementos alimentares, tendo origem do fungo Aspergillus oryzae e devem fornecer no mínimo 4.500 U.FCC (Instrução Normativa n. 28, 2018).…”

“…In turn, diets, in relation to plastic surgery and exercise, gain prominence for being an attempt to improve appearance in an easy and inexpensive way. However, commonly, the health risks associated with a diet, especially when composed of alternates food, they are disregarded (Molin et al, 2019). As a result, the consumption of dietary supplements has become a public health problem, considering the high number of people consuming these products on their own initiative or on the recommendation of friends without the due recommendation of a specialized professional (Molin et al, 2019).…”

“…In addition, due to the lack of regulatory standards and ineffective inspection in this segment, the use of advertisements with claims about certain ingredients is often not always true. According to Molin et al (2019) these commercial appeals aim to induce consumers to buy or, furthermore, to promote the false image that the product works. Therefore, in the midst of this confusing and unsafe scenario, it is understood that the consumer of food supplements, in order to minimize the risks of a possible purchase, is encouraged to seek information about products in this category.…”
