dietary supplement definition

The wide assortment of minerals, vitamins, and sundry herbs that are taken as nutritional supplements to regular food.

Note: There has been a rapid increase in the use of supplements since the early 1990s, leading to debates over whether or how tightly such supplements should be regulated by the FDA. (At this writing, because they are not medicines, they need not pass the stringent tests that medicines must undergo).
