Some dietary supplement claims are hard to swallow

Yay me! (I think.) I now belong to a new demographic group… women of a certain age. And let me tell you, the marketers know it. I’ve been getting ads and promotional mailings touting the benefits of all sorts of pills, potions and lotions. Some promote the wonders of certain dietary supplements for whatever ails you, from obesity and arthritis to cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

While some supplements have proven benefits, others don’t. Unlike drugs, dietary supplements aren’t evaluated or reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for safety and effectiveness. Even “natural” supplements can be risky depending on the medicines you take or the medical conditions you have.
