On the Slovenian market come from day to day new products, so-called dietary supplements , for which manufacturers claim that strengthen the immune system, reduce stress, improve poor digestion, relieve inflammation, difficulty in me, renewing worn bones, help with weight loss, etc..
Borut Strukelj

Prof. dr. Štrukelj, Master of Pharmacy, Head of the Department of Pharmaceutical Biology at the Faculty of Pharmacy in Ljubljana.

About how useful or useless as well, we talked with the professor. dr. Borut dumplings, magistrom pharmacy , Head of the Department of Pharmaceutical Biology at the Faculty of Pharmacy in Ljubljana that different dietary supplements have long been exploring.

What increases the need for intake of antioxidants: pregnancy and lactation phase of rapid growth (children and adolescents), major sporting endeavors, aging, acute and chronic diseases, consumption of medicines, inadequate or lack of quality nutrition, mental and physical exertion, stress, smoking, contaminated environment, etc..

What are dietary supplements and how, if, apart from medication?
Somewhat ingenuously, that dietary supplements intended: as a supplement to a healthy diet depleted, sick as a medicine.

But in practice we know that is not always the case. If I take for example garlic products, I can say that it is largely classified as dietary supplements,

some of them are also registered as a drug without a prescription. Similarly, products from echinacea, which is known as enhancer defense system.

Although containing the same amount of extract some such products are registered as medicines and others as dietary supplements.

The fact is that our law classifies dietary supplements (vitamins, minerals, fiber, probiotics, etc.). Between foods .

Yes! Therefore apply to them less strict than for medicine. In addition, dietary supplements, unlike drugs, can also be sold in some grocery stores, drug stores and "green pharmacy".

Upon arrival of a new food supplement on the market is only necessary application to the Ministry of Health, and later these amendments do not control more stringent than other foods?

Thus. I'm sure you also know that prescription drugs may not be advertised. Advertised can only medicines to samozdavljenje, therefore non-prescription medicines, which are allowed to specify what treatment, and what they are used

. Dietary supplements may advertise only in advertisements must not indicate that any treatment.

If a dietary supplement really demonstrates the therapeutic and healing effect, it would apply to register as a medicine?

In my case, even if the registration process is very long, complex and expensive. That is why many manufacturers of food supplements, even though exhibits therapeutic effects are often not registered as a medicine.
