ABSTRACT
The aim of the study was to describe the role of psychosocial determinants of using vitamin and mineral supplements among students. Through using the theory of planned behaviour, a more detailed approach to assess the psychosocial factors influencing dietary supplement use among students was created. Attitude toward behaviour was the statistically significant factor influencing both intention and behaviour concerning use of vitamin and mineral supplements among the population. Subjective norm and perceived behavioural control was not a good predictor of using supplements among the population.
