Abstract

In the United States, Ayurvedic medications are regulated as dietary supplements. As such, they are not required to meet the safety and efficacy standards for conventional medicines. For this Iowa cluster, the FDA had limited ability to intervene because the products were reported by the users to be obtained directly from a supplier outside of the USA. Ayurvedic products purchased in the county of residence in Iowa did not demonstrate heavy metal contamination.
