“Food Supplements do not cure any disease”, says BFAD

BUTUAN CITY (16 March 2009) – The Bureau of Foods and Drugs (BFAD) of the Department of Health (DOH) Caraga Regional Office warns public that “food supplements do not cure any disease” during the consultative meeting with food supplement manufacturers, distributors and advertisers on the labeling requirement for food supplement, and related matters at the DOH-Caraga Regional Office, this city.

BFAD firmly informs the food supplement manufacturers, distributors, advertisers, and especially consumers on the pertinent Provisions of Republic Act No. 7394 (Consumer Act of the Philippines) covering advertisements of foods, drugs, devices, and cosmetics.

Food and Drug Regulation Officer (FRDO II) Leslie Cimagala said “dahil sa dumaraming bilang ng mga “food supplements” sa pamilihan at sa mga patalastas o mga patutoo tungkol sa mga diumano’y epktong medical ng mga ito, mahigpit na pinapayuhan ang publiko na ang mga produktong ito ay nagbibigay lamang ng karagdagang nutrisyon at walang pakikinabangang medical o sa madaling salita, ang mga ito ay hindi nakagagamot”.

FRDO II Cimagala also said “walang sapat na siyantipikong pag-aaral o katibayan na makapagpapatunay na ang mga ito ay makapagpapagaling ng isang partikular na sakit o karamdaman”.

Meanwhile, Florminda Tejano, BFAD Chief Administrative Officer said “Ang publiko ay pinapayuhan na ang pag-inom o paggamit ng “food supplements” bilang kapalit ng regular na medikasyon para sa isang karamdaman ay hindi tamang gawi at maaaring makapagdulot pa ng mas malubhang kumplikasyon o karamdaman”.

BFAD-Caraga is hoping for the active participation of the public regarding this matter, and also encourages them to take extra care in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. (Jennifer P. Gaitano, PIA-Caraga)
