USING CANARYSEED TO TREAT HEALTH CONDITIONS
As with most dietary supplements and remedies, there are many stories about canaryseed's potential health benefits. Maintaining a health weight, support of normal health of the heart, blood vessels, liver, kidneys and pancreas have all been attributed to canaryseed.
However, as of 2013, scientists have not yet studied how canaryseed might affect human diseases or health conditions. Currently, canaryseed is officially considered a dietary supplement for supporting normal health and body functions, not a medicine or medical treatment.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn't allow dietary supplement providers talk about a product’s potential or known health benefits. Waiting to seek medical treatment for a health condition may be harmful, and the FDA wants to make sure that people who need medical treatment get medical treatment, rather than trying products that haven't been scientifically tested and proven safe and effective. For this reason, it is illegal for companies in the US to talk about how any dietary supplement affects a specific disease or condition.
Mexico and other countries have different regulations about what dietary supplement providers can discuss, but that still doesn't mean the canaryseed health claims you hear or read have been tested or proven.
