In episode 17 we’re joined by David Trosin, the Managing Director of Health Sciences Certification at NSF International. In this podcast we discuss regulation and certification of dietary supplements, which as you’ll hear is a bit of a thorny and complex area. With increasing demand for nutritional interventions to improve health and combat disease new innovations are hitting the supplement market almost daily it seems. In many cases there is very little know about the safety, efficacy, or even the accuracy of what’s in a given dietary supplement. NSF seeks to change that with its supplement certification programs. The supplement industry is expected to balloon to nearly a $307 billion dollar industry by 2026. With that said, clearly utilization by our clients and patients are on the rise and as such this is an important area for fitness and wellness professionals to be informed on.
