Big Nutrition Changes Coming to the EU

In the United States, there seems to be steps being taken that lean towards increased regulations nearly all of the time. One big way that people were getting nutrition products that they wouldn’t normally get in America was to break the rules and get it through another country. Although it does happen, it is not something that I would advise that anyone go about doing, especially now. Usually, people would hop on their computer and get something from Europe. Well, it looks like that, for anyone who is brave enough to take those risks, that may soon be coming to an end. We have heard different things all across the board about the recent bad press that the nutrition world has endured. I would have thought that we world see changes elsewhere, but nevertheless, they have finally arrived in Europe.


Recently, there has been talk of getting around to increased regulations for Europe. Now, it looks like what is starting to take place is more than just talk. This does seem like something that could really start giving the average consumer more reliable information over what they are taking, but it does hurt a small group of people and that would be the store owners that sell these kinds of products. With these new laws going into effect, they really change the way that a supplement can be advertised. For example, certain products will have little to no regulation over what can be said about them. However, other products, like intra-workout products, will have to be highly restricted altogether about what can be said for them.

I think that these tighter regulations will be a good decision. Although, I do understand that some stores may have to adjust to this, for everyone else we start to get more truth. There have been so many different kinds of products that just do not do whatever they are saying that they claim to. From the odd before and after shots to the amount of weight you will lose within a week, it is easy to see why something had to be done. I also think that this is just the beginning of what will come as far as the changes to be made by Europe. Also, this could be just the start of other countries tightening up what will continue to happen in the supplement world. I look forward to us really being able to achieve total transparency for the world.

One reason that it is to be said that these regulations are occurring might not be the reason that you think. It turns out, that some are feeling that athletes being heavily injured could be a cause for concern. I would not think that this could be something that was such a main factor in these regulation increases. There have been so many cases of people suffering from long-term side effects that I was almost positive that this would be the main reasoning behind these decisions. No matter what might have been said to lead to the decisions that were made, I am happy that they have occurred. Hopefully this will be the year that the number of unnecessary hospitalizations and worse fates occur. If you want to find out more about what is going on be sure to check the website of your proper department to check what regulations are relative to where you live.
