Abstract: Food is one of the basic needs of life, which supplies various nutrients that the body utilizes to give energy, repair outworn tissues, and sustain life and development. Since nutrients can support life and growth, every individual needs to maintain adequate nutrition for better health and productivity, keeping in mind that various nutrients have various functions and differ according to their need in the body. As a result, many countries like India, Nigeria, America, England, and others formulate dietary guidelines such as RDA and DRI to achieve optimum nutrition. People who cannot meet their nutritional requirements directly through daily food intake due to physiological factors, age, or work usually use food supplements. For this work, literature on food and dietary supplements published and indexed in Science Direct and Scopus were searched and comprehensively analyzed. The study majorly focused on health claims of food supplements such as their use in the management of Diabetes, Cancer, CVDs, Cognitive function, Obesity-induced erectile dysfunction, Bone mineral density, and their use in athletes. The risk associated with food supplements, constraints, market trends, and future perspectives were also presented. Among all the supplements studied during this review, Omega 3 fatty acid was generally accepted and highly efficient dietary supplement with no or little critics. It is recommended that more regulations should be imposed on such products to protect human life as dietary supplements are not always safe. It should only be used when prescribed or suggested by a physician or qualified health care professional with related experience.
