A federal watchdog has claimed the Melbourne-based vitamin giant could not prove its health claims.

A panel chaired by the Therapeutic Goods Administration has requested Swisse withdraw the ads spruiking several of its vitamin products, saying Swisse could not prove its claims that consumers would "feel better on Swisse".

Which other supp companies have advertising on TV?

I am surprised not more supp companies do tv advertising these days....the bigger companies such as aussie bodies, maxs, Bodyscience....I know it is VERY expensive...but still...in this day and age when every 3rd person users a protein powder...
