Swiss law defines dietary supplements as foodstuffs intended to supplement the normal diet. They consist of single or multiple concentrates of vitamins, minerals, or other substances with a nutritional or physiological effect and are marketed in dose form.
The law also makes a distinction between dietary supplements (for example low dose vitamin products and enriched foodstuffs) and medicinal products (for example high dose vitamin products and their claims of medicinal effects).
Many food supplements, nutritional additives and other non-regulated dietary supplements go through cycles of popularity. Biolytix observes these cycles through the different customer requests it gets. One particularly common question is to verify the purity content of Nicotinamide Mononucleotide or NMN.
Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN) is often sold through internet marketplaces, with promises to slow down the pace of ageing and claims to promote a longer life. Because of high demand and cost of this compound, it seems that some untrustworthy companies have begun selling fake NMN supplements.
