OPSS High-Risk Supplement List [App]

OPSS High-Risk App logo

Some dietary supplement products contain stimulants, steroids, hormone-like ingredients, controlled substances, or unapproved drugs. The OPSS High-Risk Supplement list helps you identify supplements that might pose a potential risk to your health or career. Not all supplements on the list are illegal or banned, but all pose potential health risks. In addition, the list is not exhaustive, so something that isn’t on the list can still be unsafe. Any reliance on the information provided in the OPSS High-Risk Supplement List is solely at your own risk.

Note: In order to access the list, an account is required. Sign up for an account to access current and future updated lists.
