No Approve Therapeutic Claims

I see this a lot on TV commercial nowadays. But what does it mean? I myself is confused about this matter, I ask my nurse friend and she said that No Approve Therapeutic Claims means IT DOESN'T WORK, what???? well just to make sure I tried to search about this on the net i saw one article which says

"No approved Therapeutic Claims": What It Truly Means

The proliferation of food and herbal supplements, which are being advertised and passed on as effective cure-all products, despite the fact that these have no established therapeutic effects, is a major problem for regulatory health agencies. To the common consumer, the phrase "No Approved Therapeutic Claims", would generally mean that a supplement has not yet been determined by the FDA to be as safe and effective as advertised.

It could also mean that no studies and long-term research have yet been done to determine the efficacy of the pill, or herb in actually treating anything. This phrase usually serves as a disclaimer of sorts. The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) was passed by US Congress to ensure consumers' rights to access safe and effective dietary supplements.

A disclaimer?? the pill or herb might not work or treat anything?
