Spotlight: Supplement Safety

Science to Support Supplement Safety: On July 13, 2022, Dr. Eunice Mah presented the findings from a recently published review of the safety and related benefits of some commonly used weight management ingredients to the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) Sports Nutrition Working Group.

Thermogenic Energy Drink Study at ASN’s Nutrition 2022 Science to Support Supplement Safety: Thermogenic energy drinks (TEDs) are popular with people looking to lose weight, and manufacturers often need a study with the actual product in a population that represents the market target to make direct claims about their efficacy. An example of this type of clinical trial conducted by Biofortis and sponsored by Rowdy Energy was presented at the June annual meeting of the American Society of Nutrition by Dr. Eunice Mah.

Recent Clinical Studies at Biofortis

—A 4-week attention study on an herbal supplement in adults 18 to 55 years old who have self-reported poor attention.

—A study on the survival of a probiotic in a dairy-based beverage with generally healthy adults ages 18 to 40 who have regular bowel movements over 6 weeks (5 visits).

—Investigation of a 4-day intermittent fasting pattern (16 h fast – 8 h eating) on glycemic control using continuous glucose monitoring in non-diabetic adults ages 30 to 69.
