Be skeptical of unrealistic promises. Weight loss in a few days or performance increases for competitions only based on dietary supplements is not very serious.
Pay attention to the labels on the packaging. In Germany, among other things, the ingredients, nutritional or active ingredient content, any allergens present, information on the manufacturer, and packager must be indicated. This also applies to sales via the Internet.
Good addresses for more information and advice are the consumer centers, which you can also find online. Here you can also make complaints. The information provided by the German Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection (BMJV) is also of interest.
Do not buy products from abroad or from less trustworthy sources. It would be best if you also were wary of bargains and discounts.
Before you take food supplements, talk to your doctor. Often there is no shortage of vitamins or nutrients. Short-term needs, for example, after illness or in the winter months, can usually be met by a balanced diet.
