Hello duminduonline; Welcome to AdWords community;


I doubt;...

There is a list of non-prescription diet pills/ supplements, that cannot be advertised using AdWords. I think that all products on the market are on this list, thus cannot be promoted.

Hi

A lot of it depends on which country this is inteded for but here is brief

The AdWords policy on healthcare and medicines will change around late January 2012. It will more clearly reflect that Google AdWords prohibits the promotion of the following products, irrespective of claims of legality:

  • Non-government approved or non-prescription products that are marketed in a way that implies that they're safe or effective for use in preventing or treating a disease or ailment
