DIETARY SUPPLEMENT HEALTH AND EDUCATION ACT OF 1994 DEFINITION OF DIETARY SUPPLEMENT is a product (other than tobacco) that is intended to supplement the diet that bears or contains one or more of the following dietary ingredients: a vitamin, a mineral, an herb or other botanical, an amino acid, a dietary substance for use by man to supplement the diet by increasing the total daily intake, or a concentrate, metabolite, constituent, extract, or combinations of these ingredients. is intended for ingestion in pill, capsule, tablet, or liquid form. is not represented for use as a conventional food or as the sole item of a meal or diet. is labeled as a "dietary supplement." includes products such as an approved new drug, certified antibiotic, or licensed biologic that was marketed as a dietary supplement or food before approval, certification, or license (unless the Secretary of Health and Human Services waives this provision).
SAFETY Under DSHEA a dietary supplement is adulterated if it or one of its ingredients presents "a significant or unreasonable risk of illness or injury" when used as directed on the label, or under normal conditions of use (if there are no directions). A dietary supplement that contains a new dietary ingredient (i.e., an ingredient not marketed for dietary supplement use in the U.S. prior to October 15, 1994) may be adulterated when there is inadequate information to provide reasonable assurance that the ingredient will not present a significant or unreasonable risk of illness or injury The Secretary of HHS may also declare that a dietary supplement or dietary ingredient poses an imminent hazard to public health or safety
NUTRITIONAL SUPPORT STATEMENTS Claims may not be made about the use of a dietary supplement to diagnose, prevent, mitigate, treat, or cure a specific disease (For example, a product may not carry the claim "cures cancer" or "treats arthritis." ) Appropriate health claims authorized by FDA--such as the claim linking folic acid and reduce risk of neural tube birth defects and the claim that calcium may reduce the risk of osteoporosis--may be made in supplement labeling if the product qualifies to bear the claim. Manufacturers may describe the supplement's effects on "structure or function" of the body or the "well-being" achieved by consuming the dietary ingredient. To use these claims, manufacturers must have substantiation that the statements are truthful and not misleading and the product label must bear the statement "This statement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease."

Kava-kava (Piper methysticum) Parts used : roots, rhizomes Properties: bitter, pungent, warming herb, diuretic, relieves pain, relaxes spasm, stimulant effect on circulatory and nervous system Constituents: kava lactones / pyrones, kavain, dihydro-kavain methysticin, yangonine, Medicinal use: nervous anxiety, stress, restlessness, insomnia The sedative effect of kava-pyrones might be mediated via the GABA-A receptor.
Precautions and dosage : Patients should not use kava without first obtaining medical advice, and doses should not exceed 300 mg/day. In one clinical trial using WS 1490, the occurrence of adverse effects was rare. Only two reports (stomach upset in both cases) were rated as “possibly related.” The most commonly reported adverse effect of kava usage is kava dermopathy—a yellow, scaly, leprosy-like eruption of the skin and inflammation of the eyes. The drug contraindicated during pregnancy or nursing. It is also contraindicated in patients with endogenous depression because it increases the danger of suicide. Daily dose: equivalent of 60 to 120 mg kava lactones.
Possible interaction between kava-lactones and pharmaceutical drugs. The drug may enhances the effectiveness of barbiturates and other psychopharmacological agents. Kava lactons inhibit Cytochrome P-450 Drug clearance is slowing down, extended effect or toxicity Deficiency of CYP2D6 (7-9% of Caucasian population) People should avoid kava predisposed to liver problem or already taking drugs that have adverse effect on the liver.
Chemistry, Functions, Toxicity Silymarin may stimulate the action of nucleolar polymerase A, resulting in an increase in ribosomal protein synthesis, thereby stimulating the regenerative ability of the liver and the formation of new hepatocytes. Silybin, the active constituent of silymarin has been reported to work as an antioxidant, scavenging free radicals.

Stress Every living organism is maintaining a complex dynamic equilibrium or homeostasis. Stress is a mutual actions of forces that take place across any section of the body and it is a state of threatened homeostasis. The human body reacts to stress by activating complex behavioral and physiologic responses. (Hans Selye)
