Biologically active additives (BAA) are widely introduced into everyday life. With the help of these non-medicinal preparations, you can compensate for the deficiency of vitamins, minerals, and raise energy. They are a certain protection of the body from environmental and industrial pollution . Many medicinal and non-medicinal preparations containing vitamins can cause allergic reactions .
Information about negative reactions when using dietary supplements has appeared in publications [2, 5]. Unfortunately, the effect on the human body of many dietary supplements, especially imported ones, has not been studied enough. Dietary supplements are distributed and often recommended by distributors who have no medical education; the effect of drugs in such cases is not controlled. In order to study the effect of dietary supplements on the general condition of a person and his functional indicators, we conducted studies in 167 people. Of these, 30 people are practically healthy people, 107 people were in the so-called “third state”  and 30 people had signs of hypertension, coronary heart disease, vegetative-vascular dystonia, but all of them were in a compensated state.
The age of the subjects was from 14 to 77 years. All of the above persons underwent general electropuncture diagnostics (EPD) according to R. Voll to assess the functional state of organs and systems, to determine pathological changes according to the “worst” acupuncture points (TA). Depending on the changes identified, dietary supplements were selected and a specific algorithm for testing the drug was drawn up. This algorithm necessarily included the TA of the allergy meridian and the worst TA. The test preparation was placed into the passive electrode of the measuring electrical circuit of the MINI-EXPERT-DT device and after 3-For 4 minutes, measurements of the parameters of electrocutaneous conductivity were carried out according to a given algorithm.
The effect of dietary supplements on functional indicators was assessed as follows:
– “excellent”, if the drug normalizes the performance at all the worst TA, eliminates the fall of the arrow (PS) of the device;
– “good” if the drug normalizes the performance at most of the worst TA, and changes slightly on the rest, but towards normalization, eliminates PS;
– “satisfactory”, if the drug improves the performance by two or three TA, but does not bring them to the conditional norm; reduces the value of PS, but does not completely eliminate;
– “unsatisfactory”, if the drug does not significantly change the bad indicators for TA or worsens some.
