Mexico – The regulation of nootropics in Mexico: Analysis from the perspective of the food and beverage industry

In Mexico, nootropics are not specifically regulated, which means that there is no list of substances that are permitted or prohibited.

However, the Comisión Federal para la Protección contra Riesgos Sanitarios (COFEPRIS) has established general regulations for foods and food supplements, which include nootropics.

According to these regulations, any substance added to a food or food supplement must be authorized and have a safe dosage, in addition, manufacturers must clearly label ingredients and product dosages, and must comply with Good Manufacturing Practices.

This means that food and beverage manufacturers wishing to add nootropics to their products must ensure that they comply with these regulations to avoid sanctions by COFEPRIS.
