Abstract
Nowadays, dietary supplements’ consumption, especially those of plant origin, has been gaining more popularity among consumers owing to misbelieve that they are natural products posing no risks to human health. In many regions of the world including the European Union and the United States, dietary supplements are legally considered as special categories of food, thus are not popularly being submitted to any safety assessment prior to their commercialization. Among the safety issues, comes adulteration by the illegal addition of pharmaceutical substances or their analogues, since unscrupulous producers can falsify these products to provide for quick effects and to increase their profits and sales. This case study is about one product used locally as a dietary supplement, and was marketed for weight loss, muscle building, lead to several health complications in one user, who presented with renal impairment and also describes about several conventional and advanced analytical techniques used to detect and identify amphetamine-like adulterants in the dietary supplement.
