Dietary Supplement Scientific Interest Group
The Dietary Supplement SIG was created to bring together NIH program officials and intramural investigators who are interested in dietary supplement research. As defined by Congress in the 1994 Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA), a dietary supplement is a product (other than tobacco) that is intended to supplement the diet; contains one or more dietary ingredients (including vitamins; minerals; herbs or other botanicals; amino acids; and other substances) or their constituents; is intended to be taken by mouth as a pill, capsule, tablet, or liquid. The SIG will sponsor a monthly seminar series, quarterly meetings and serve as a forum for discussion of current and future activities occurring in the field of dietary supplements. It is open to all persons within NIH and associated agencies (FDA, USDA, etc.) who share an interest in dietary supplements research.
