Do you have to be 18 to buy supplements at gnc?

PITTSBURGH: The General Centers for Nutrition (GNC) will begin checking the customer's identifier to verify that the buyer is 18 years of age or older when purchasing the products for which it is intended. Those under the age of 18 will not be allowed to buy ephedra, a supplement that has been accused of influencing several deaths and that has attracted the attention of both the Food and Drug Administration and the U. In recent years, private organizations have sprung up to test health supplements to determine their content, state regulators have been analyzing product expiration dates, and the media have published periodic reports on the dangers of mixing prescription drugs with wrong supplements. In addition, the chain will review its labeling practices to ensure that consumers receive full information about CNG supplements.
