Doctor and Patient

Food supplements are intended to correct nutritional deficiencies, maintain an adequate intake of certain nutrients, or to support specific physiological functions. They are not medicinal products and as such cannot exert a pharmacological, immunological or metabolic action. Therefore, their use is not intended to treat or prevent diseases in humans or to modify physiological functions.

To sell food supplements you must register as a Food Business Operator (FBO) with your local authority.

If you are making  any medical claims with your product it is vitally important that these claims are verified by experts as sometimes products may need to be classified as Pharmaceuticals.

Inviva can support you with this verification, perform label checks for conformity and provide you with confidence that your product is compliant with local regulations.
