    The future of dietary supplements


    Today's supplements are extremely versatile with very little to no side effects after continuous use. Pharmaceutical companies, however cannot tout the same side effect free benefits. Starting with ephedra and recently with DMAA, the FDA is slowly easing its way into the control of the dietary supp industry and from the looks of things it's only getting worse. Amazon getting rid of the -racetams is just a preview of the direction that the FDA is moving in. Does anyone else wonder how long the dietary supplement industry will be around before the government and big business interferes?

    None of this is new or worrisome.

    Racetams were never DSHEA compliant and technically should be removed.

    And stims will always be abused, cause deaths, and be withdrawn.

    In these respects, the future will look just like the past.

    Talk about Doom and Gloom lol, if you want supplement issues, live in Australia or New Zealand; ephedrine + DMAA have been banned for some time now as are a lot of other ingredients.

    The supplement industry will never die, there is way to much money at stake. As ingredients get phased out, new ones will surface.
