The claims evaluation process has yielded 222 authorized health claims made up of 87 vitamin claims, 77 mineral claims, 11 fatty acid claims, six fiber claims and 41 "other" claims. Among the vitamins, vitamin C is the absolute winner and most versatile health vitamin with 15 authorized health claims: 7% of the total health claims authorized.
Among the minerals, zinc has been proven to offer many health benefits and has an amazing 18 authorized health claims: 8% of the total health claims authorized. Second best is magnesium (10 claims, 5% of total), followed by calcium and copper (both with eight claims, roughly 4% of total).
Coenzyme Q10 is an example of an ingredient that, despite being associated with energy-boosting benefits, has failed to secure an approved health claim. However, it may be possible for a manufacturer of a CoQ10 product to add 15% of the RDA for vitamin B6 in order to maintain the use of a claim like "provides more energy" or "combats fatigue."
