Some Health Supplements Will be Stopped from Production

On January 13, the State Administration for Market Regulation issued a draft for comments on the “Catalogue of Health Functions Allowed to be Claimed in Health Food Non-Nutrient Supplements (2022 Edition)”. The main contents include that 7 health functions (promote lactation, improve growth and development, improve skin oil, inhibit tumors, assist in tumor suppression, anti-mutagenesis, and delay aging) are canceled. Therefore, products involving function claims mentioned above should be stopped from production immediately. Other 24 kinds of health functions such as “enhance immunity” will be retained with the corresponding adjustment on word expression. (Source:
