Fact check: Are dietary supplements a rip-off?

 Supplements that claim to enhance skin and hair health, fortify the immune system,,,

 or boost performance are becoming increasingly popular around the world.   

 The market for minerals like magnesium and vitamins C is worth billions of dollars.  

 This is a long-running issue for Angela Clausen of the North Rhine-Westphalia consumer advisory center. 

 "The problem is that a great many people see dietary supplements as a kind of natural medication, so they use them accordingly: for therapy,,,

 and to relieve or heal diseases," according to her.  

 "But dietary supplements are only really intended to supplement essential components that we don't get enough of from our diet." 

 The best case scenario is that people are squandering their money if dietary supplements don't work.
