Supplements Tampering by Jason Murphy

People who keep to a healthy diet and active lifestyles don't
really need added supplements and nutrition to sustain their
bodies. However, not everybody develops tastes for vegetables
or fish or milk which can cause serious deficiencies.
Supplements and nutrition in bottles and boxes are necessary
for these people. But these supplements are not classified as
drugs by the US FDA. They can be brought without prescription
like an ordinary grocery item. Convenient, eh? Not really,
since this also makes it easier for unscrupulous individuals to
tamper and manufacture fake supplements.

Think that you can easily pick out a tampered bottles from the
next? The old plastic seal is not a reliable sign of tampering
at present. In fact, there are fake supplements and nutrition
aids that are confiscated with plastic seals. But don't panic;
there are other ways to detect tampering and fake meds other
than by broken seals.

Tampering signs are easily noticeable with the stricter
guidelines in packaging. Supplements and nutrition aids, like
other OTC drugs, are now required to feature packaging designs
that are not easily imitated. These designs run the gamut from
special stickers, patterns, illustration, symbols, or logo with
special characteristics. These characteristics -- holograms,
pop-up tops -- make it easier to detect if the supplement is a
fake. Of course, these tamper tricks require consumers to be
familiar with the original design of the box or bottle. Capsule
supplements are required to have two safety measures. Aside from
the special container features, they are also required to sport
special wrappers, inner containers, and per dosage pouches.
However, like with all security measures, these are not
foolproof. Basic common sense is needed to avoid buying
tampered products.

When buying medicine, supplements and nutrition aids, consider
the packaging style. Generally, products that only have single
anti-tamper feature are easier to fake. These are usually
supplements in bottles. Since the bottles are dark, it is
difficult to detect tampering. Consider also the kind of
anti-tamper feature involved. Plain stickers are easy to
duplicate, but those that feature holographic designs are not.
Examine the box carefully; anti-tamper instructions are usually
printed on it. Be suspicious of products that don't have this;
the manufacturers do not want to encourage vigilance in the
consumer. Of course, do not purchase products that lack these
packaging traits. Check and examine the contents ASAP.
Discoloration, uncharacteristic foul smell, and curdling of
contents should be reported immediately. If you had the
misfortune of buying a tampered item, return it immediately and
get a full medical check-up to detect side effects of the fake

To be on the safe side, consult your doctor before taking any
supplements and nutrition aids. Research about the different
makes and familiarize yourself with their appearance. Only
through common sense and vigilance can you avoid being victims
of tampered supplements and nutrition aids.
