Clinical Trials in Humans

Ensure the safety and efficacy of your product

What is a clinical trial in humans?

A clinical trial in humans provides evidence of the safety and efficacy of health foods and dietary supplements.

Why do you need evidence?

If you are concerned about the safety or efficacy of your product, obtaining scientific and objective evidence is the answer.
For example, if your friends, TV commercials and magazines, or a physician recommend a dietary supplement, the dietary supplement does not have to have scientific efficacy.

The process of acquiring evidence

There are several steps to earn evidence.

  • 1
    Preclinical studies
    Preclinical studies verify the safety and efficacy of food in vitro and in animal models
  • 2
    Dose-finding study
    Dose-finding studies determine the most effective quantity.
    A different amount of food is consumed and compared in humans.
  • 3
    Safety evaluation studies
    Safety evaluation study of excessive consumption
    Safety evaluation studies of high doses are evaluated by consuming 3 to 5 times more than the usual amount of food or supplement and were confirming that no adverse events occur.
    Safety evaluation study of long-term consumption
    Safety evaluation studies of long periods are evaluated by consuming the usual amount of food or supplement for a long period of time (>3 months) and confirming that no adverse events occur.
  • 4
