Is It Permissible to Take Supplements?

Answered by Shaykh Abdul-Rahim Reasat



Can I take supplements without consulting a doctor like omega, magnesium etc. What is the ruling on consulting a doctor? Is it necessary or can i take supplements for my benefit without seeing a doctor?



I pray you are well.

Supplements are permissible to take as long as the ingredients are halal. In order to know if you should or what their benefits are you should speak to a medical professional and not a scholar.

May Allah grant you wellbeing.
