Ministry of Health Issues Withdrawal of Certain Dietary Supplements

December 13, 2016

The Ministry of Health of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has issued an order aiming to withdraw certain dietary supplements for weight loss and male sex enhancement from the market.

The withdrawal is announced as these supplements are containing undeclared and unregistered drug ingredients that may pose serious health risks specifically for those who are suffering from cardiac disorders and diabetes or those taking products that contain nitrates.

Circulars had been released to health authorities, stakeholders and partners for them to fully remove these products from their stores.
