Abstract

This posttest only two-group design study with 113 adults tested how reading a pamphlet based on the United States' Federal Drug Administration (FDA) Tips for the Savvy Supplement User affects intention to use and recommend supplements. A total of 23.7% fewer people with health problems who prior to reading the pamphlet believed that supplements were safer than medications planned to recommend their dietary supplement to family and friends after reading the pamphlet than in the comparison group. A lower probability of recommending dietary supplements is a helpful starting point for safer dietary supplement use by consumers.
