Resumo: Given the impact of the consumption of food supplements in the health and wellness of consumers, the European Commission considered it important to know the marketing/consumption of food supplements, containing vitamins and minerals, in the different Member States. This dissertation appears as a first response to the objective of the Commission, to assess the national market of food supplements with vitamins and minerals in 2012. The study was based on the information given on 579 labels of food supplements containing vitamins and minerals, which were reported to DGAV in 2012, to be recorded and analyzed. The analysis allows us to observe that the marketing of food supplements is not considered of concern in relation to the values of the national population in 2012. The category of health and wellness includes a larger number of supplements and the micronutrients most found is vitamin C and magnesium. We also analyzed case studies and found that supplements have compositions that, associated with a common diet, contribute to an intake above the recommended daily dose, but below the thresholds of toxicity. Only vitamin B6, in the case of "Magnesium-OK", presents values that are more than double the tolerable upper intake level of this vitamin
