Course Overview

The main problem arises when manufacturers, distributors, and consumers don't understand the efficacy of dietary supplements. Due to a boom in the market, producers are coming up with supplements that are deficient.

Additionally, the ease of access and over-the-counter availability have diluted the importance of dietary supplements. This course is here to change the narrative and bridge the existing gaps.

Dietary supplement formulation training gives a comprehensive introduction to programming the entire manufacturing unit. Moreover, you will get to know the possible issues you might face while testing the products.

Here are some benefits of taking a course on regulatory compliance for dietary supplements:

  • Understanding FDA expectations
  • Knowing the rules and regulations to follow during the audits
  • Improving the GMPs to upgrade operations in the unit
  • Fundamentals of physical and chemical properties of the ingredients
  • Stability studies and categorization
  • Techniques to create a formulation that passes multiple checkpoints.
